Iran Launches Missiles At U.S. Troops In Iraq – Trump To Address The Nation Today

Today the world is waiting to hear from President Donald Trump. How will America respond to last night’s Iranian ballistic missile strikes on U.S. bases inside Iraq?  (scan down for video). The President has announced he will speak today. Iranian state TV says the missiles were revenge for the U.S. killing of General Qassem Soleimani. Last night Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei announced his country, “slapped (them) on the face” with those 22-missiles fired.  So far there are no reports of casualties. Trump said on the weekend that if Iran attacked the retaliation from America would be quick is disproportionate.

Canada’s Chief of Defence staff says all Canadian troops are safe and accounted for after the Iranian air strikes on Iraq. General Jonathan Vance made the comment to military families on Twitter. Canadians have a military and diplomatic presence in one of the areas targeted. Hours before the Iranian missiles hit, the Canadian Forces had started to move troops out of the area.
