While the world has been subjectively celebrating the New Year of 2020 beginning in the Pacific Island Nations of Tonga, Samoa, Kiribati, New Zealand and Australia, halfway round the world within the hardly scenic nation of Iraq, Iran-backed Iraqis yelling ‘Death to America’ stormed the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.
Make no mistake people, this has been brewing for quite some time and has finally shown itself. The dogs of war are never satiated, especially those within our own Military Industrial Complex. True dogs of war who’ve been champing at the bit to go rout out the Iranians for years now. HAPPY NEW YEAR … or something.
The mullahs are reeling in Iran, and would love nothing more than to start a war with the USA. President Trump won’t give them what they want; neither will he absorb a blow without returning a stronger blow. Apples and oranges versus the dogs of war if you ask me.

Iran killed an American contractor, wounding many. We strongly responded, and always will. Now Iran is orchestrating an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq. They will be held fully responsible. In addition, we expect Iraq to use its forces to protect the Embassy, and so notified! [end]
First up, in order to fund something like this, let’s remember that (BINGO!) in an obsequious undercover charade cobbled together by Faux President #44 and his ingrates, large pallets of illegal cash (used notes) were flown into Iran in the dead of night in unmarked airplanes behind the backs of our top U.S. military commanders. Thank God that #44, Biden and Hillary are not in charge this time. Mmmmm. Or are they? Remember – the dogs of war.
President Trump, having no expertise in geopolitics or military strategy, generally will only nominate people like Esper and Pompeo since they will be readily confirmed by the Senate, who only confirm deep staters, uniparty hacks and globalist warmongers. Additionally, President Trump is surrounded by Bush era types who hate his foreign policy and will do anything to nullify it. As long as the U.S. Senate is owned lock, stock and barrel by the Military Industrial Complex there is precious little he can do about it.
Yesterday for instance, ‘sundance’ at Conservative Treehouse posted: “Well, well, well…. we are not alone in our suspicions of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Defense Secretary Mark Esper and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Milley. Tonight Col Douglas Macgregor outlines his own suspicions about the U.S. military attack in Iraq and Syria that parallel our initial gut reaction. Macgregor states his belief that President Trump is being “skillfully misinformed”. [end]
Tyler O’Neill, PJMedia: ‘Death to America’ Iran-Backed Militia Storms U.S. Embassy in Baghdad’…
On Tuesday, mourners with an Iran-backed militia stormed the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad as the Iraqi government refused to intervene. Protesters lit the embassy on fire and shouted, “Death to America!” The attack followed U.S. airstrikes on Sunday against the Iran-backed militia after an American contractor was killed last week in a rocket attack on an Iraqi military base.
“Iran killed an American contractor, wounding many. We strongly responded, and always will. Now Iran is orchestrating an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq. They will be held fully responsible,” President Donald Trump tweeted on Tuesday morning. “In addition, we expect Iraq to use its forces to protect the Embassy, and so notified!” [-]
[+] … AP journalists saw the mob try to scale the walls of the embassy, shouting, “Down, down USA!” and “Death to America!” and “Death to Israel!” … Iraq has been courting both Iran and the U.S. following the agreement to allow some U.S. troops to stay in the country. The Iraqi government said it will reconsider its relationship with the U.S.- led coalition, calling the U.S. airstrikes a “flagrant violation” of its sovereignty.
Kata’ib Hezbollah is not to be confused with the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah. Iran has brutally crushed internal opposition to the regime, with approximately 1,500 protesters murdered in November. [end]
As Breitbart put it: “The militia group Kata’ib Hezbollah is backed by Iran and continues to attack sites in Iraq, putting American troops in danger. The Department of Defense sent F-15 Strike Eagles to bomb the sites, which were described as either command and control centers or weapons caches.”
“I would note also that we will take additional actions as necessary to ensure that we act in our own self-defense and we deter further bad behavior from militia groups or from Iran,” Secretary of Defense Mark Esper told reporters on Saturday, detailing the strikes. Trump urged Iraq to defend the United States embassy, as the U.S. ambassador in Baghdad and other staff have evacuated from the embassy. “In addition, we expect Iraq to use its forces to protect the Embassy, and so notified!” he wrote. [end]
The president also spoke to the people of Iraq, urging them to step up and take control of their country. “To those many millions of people in Iraq who want freedom and who don’t want to be dominated and controlled by Iran, this is your time!” he wrote.
And on that note, time for today’s MAGA Pill – President Donald J. Trump fighting the dogs of war – MAGA! KAG!
