MSNBC is not reporting casualties.
I’ve seen reports via reporters on the ground calling as many as 20 US Military Casualties... but it is not being picked up by MSNBC and I don’t see it on CNN.

6. MSNBC reporter was quoting Iranian state media.

Probably propaganda.

7. Missiles confirmed to strike inside Green Zone.

That does not happen without casualties.

There is a cover up on Casualties at this point IMHO.

Not anywhere close to the 'Green Zone'...

9. Only casualty reports I've heard were Iranian claims...

They shouldn't be publishing those. I'm down with waiting until we get reliable reports.

18. If there are American casualties, they will not be reported on until...

This criminal administration figures out a way to pivot.

All is well! Missiles launched from Iran at two military bases located in Iraq. Assessment of casualties & damages taking place now. So far, so good! We have the most powerful and well equipped military anywhere in the world, by far! I will be making a statement tomorrow morning.

Two missiles were fired at Erbil's airport. One landed at the airport and was a dud and the other landed 20 miles to the west of the city in the middle of nowhere. Good job Iran. Way to look like idiots. No wonder the DUmbasses are your fans. You have so much in common.

True Story-

There we were...
It was my fourth (and my last as it turned out) tour in Iraq and we flew in last and got settled into our temporary billets. It was near dawn and the joes were stirring. I was up and had my morning constitutionals an was back on my bunk smoking  cigar. In the distance we heard the sounds of rockets. Some of my guys were new to the war and one asked, 'Sir? Is that incoming our outgoing?"
"Well," I said, "We don't have rockets." and just as I finished there was a loud crash just outside the billets. Joes wer diving under bunks, throwing on body armor, grabbing helmets... some were grabbing rifles, although I am not sure what they though they were going to do.
I got up and slowly made my way outside. About ten feet away from where my bunk was a large hole now lay in the ground- smoking. SSG Joe Smith (his real name) came up beside me. "Rocket?"
"Yup". EOD will be here shortly I suppose." I took another drag on the cigar. "Better cordon off the AO until they get here." SSG Smith went off to do such as my 1SG came swaggering out of the latrine. "Can't a guy take a mutha-fickin shit in this mutha-****ing country without some asshole trying to blow his ass up?" 1SG Johnson kinda thought he was Samuel L. Jackson... but he was from Ohio... and white.
"You OK, Top?"
"Yeah, I'm fine... but you better look after my 'son'. He's a bit shaken."
Top's 'son' was 1LT Johnson (no relation), one of my PLs. It was his first time in country. I waked over to the latrine and called in. "You OK, el-tee?"
Jr. (the guys called him Jr. behind his back... not just because of the name. The kid looked like he was 16 years old.) walked out, pretty white in the face and shaking a bit.
"Gawd-damn." He was a touch shaken. He stayed a touch shaken the entire tour after that. Pretty good guy in the firefight- just jumpy.


Those ****ers couldn't hit anything then. They can't hit anything now.

Is it just me or do the DUmmies sound disappointed there were no casualties?

that's my take on their reaction.
Trump Won.  Get over it!
