Iran Strikes US Base
By Micah Halpern

Tuesday October 19, 2021
I've Been Thinking:

Iran attacked a US base in Syria.

The al Tanf base sits on the Syrian/Iraqi border. The base is there to function as an intel facility. It houses about 400 US troops along with British and French intelligence personnel.

Interestingly, the report on the attack of a US base was broadcast not on US media but on Iranian media. And the Iranians claimed responsibility.

This was a direct message to both the United States and Israel. And the message is that Iran is acting and responding to changing events in the region.

Iran regularly uses others to do their bidding so that they have plausible deniability. So their direct involvement in strike against a US base is a significant change in style.

Aside from the message to the United States and to Israel, Iran is also telling Russia that they too do not want the United States in Syria and that they are actively moving to push them out.

We have been warned.
