On January 3, President Trump ordered a drone strike on Iranian Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani. He was the commander of the elite Quds force. He was a terrorist with the blood of American servicemen on his hands. He was the region’s grim reaper. And now he’s dead. It was a win for the country. We killed a terrorist who brought nothing but death and destruction to the Middle East. Iran is the world’s largest state sponsor of terror. They vowed revenge and declared the U.S. military a terrorist organization. The chants of “death of America” were heard…again. Iran was going to strike back, we just didn’t know when or how. Well, as we speak, a coordinated missile attack was launched on U.S. forces in Iraq at al-Asad airbase. The timing is also significant, occurring right around the time the U.S. turned Soleimani into BBQ. 

More from Fox News:

Missiles were fired early Wednesday in multiple locations across Iraq, a senior U.S. military source in the country told Fox News, describing it as a series of attacks on U.S. forces from Iran.

The source told Fox News' Jennifer Griffin: "Under missile attack from Iran. These are either cruise missiles or short-range ballistic missiles. All over the country." The missiles struck near Al Assad Air Base in Anbar, among other locations. There was no immediate word on injuries or damage.

Meantime, Iran state TV claimed Tehran launched "tens" of surface-to-surface missiles at Iraq's Ain Assad air base housing U.S. troops.

Yet, also a good word of warning from National Review's Jim Geraghty. We'll keep you posted:
