Pelosi Blames Trump for Iran Missile Strikes on U.S. Military Bases in Iraq

Missiles were fired at U.S. military bases in Iraq on Tuesday by Iran over President Trump’s order to kill Iranian General Qasem Soleimani in an airstrike last week.

The airstrike against Soleimani followed the pro-Iran demonstrator’s attack on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq which caused damage to outer parts of the embassy compound.

Importantly, U.S. intelligence believed Soleimani traveled to Baghdad to initiate additional attacks against U.S. personnel in Iraq and elsewhere in the Middle East.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi blamed President Trump for the Iranian missile attacks, calling it “needless provocations.”

Last week, Pelosi criticized President Trump for not seeking Congressional approval for the Soleimani airstrike and issued a statement calling the airstrike “provocative and disproportionate.”

Speaker Pelosi also sent a letter to Democrats to introduce a War Powers Resolution.

The Hill reports:

Pelosi told Democratic members in a letter that the House will introduce a vote on a “War Powers Resolution” mandating that the administration’s military hostilities with regard to Iran would cease within 30 days if no further congressional action is taken.

Following the Soleimani airstrike, there were concerns about tensions escalating in the Middle East.

Fox News reported on the missile attacks.

While the attacks were the latest escalation with Tehran in the aftermath of a U.S. drone strike that killed the top Iranian general, initial assessments showed “no U.S. casualties,” a U.S. military official in Baghdad told Fox News.

The Iranian Foreign Minister defended the missile launches.

Not surprising that while details were still unfolding, the anti-Trump media mocked President Trump.

President Trump was briefed on the missile attacks and issued a statement on social media.

It’s outrageous Pelosi would blame President Trump while U.S. troops were under attack.

The president is expected to address the nation today about Iran.
