BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:20 A.M.) – Two mortar rounds landed inside the Balad Airbase in Iraq, Iraqi military sources said on Thursday.

According to Reuters, the sources added that there were no reports of casualties as a result of the attack.

The Balad Airbase hosts US troops and contractors; it is located approximately 80 km north of Baghdad.

Earlier this week, five rockets landed at the Al-As’ad Airbase, which also hosts US forces in western Anbar; it also caused no casualties.

US forces have been present in several military bases in Anbar, Salaheddine, Nineveh, and the capital Baghdad, as part of the international coalition.

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.

Just deploy Iron-Dome and get counter-artillery coordinates at the same time as you intercept the cräp. Get the CAESAR SP-Howitzer then you return fire with metric accuracy with standard shells rather than the $68k US GPS-guided one (or the $52k Russian GLONASS-guided Krasnopol 152mm shell)
