Rocket fired at US embassy in Iraq the same model used by Iran

The rocket that exploded Sunday outside the U.S. embassy in Baghdad is of a design trafficked by Iran and used by Middle Eastern terrorist groups.

While it is unclear who was responsible for firing or supplying the Katyusha rocket, weapons of the same type were seized by Yemeni authorities on an Iranian ship in 2013. Iran is known to support terrorist groups in the region both financially and with arms, and Iranian forces are known to field Katyusha rockets.

Brig. Gen. Yahya Rasoul said that the Iraqi military believed the rocket was fired from east Baghdad, where many Iran-backed Shiite militias are based.

The explosion came as tensions between the United States and Iran continue to rise. President Trump tweeted a warning to Iran shortly after the explosion occurred. “If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran. Never threaten the United States again!” he said.

    Iran and Iraq fought a war for years and it came to a draw. The United States of America (under both Bush presidents) fought a war with Iraq and in both cases it was over in days. There is a message there I believe. Consequently, perhaps Iran should take President Trump’s warning seriously. I doubt however they will. After Obama they look upon America as a paper tiger. They are wrong again but then what’s new about that?
