Poking the Bear
An Operation Inherent Resolve spokesperson stated, “Multiple rounds of indirect fire landed in the vicinity of Green Village in northeastern Syria shortly after 9 p.m. Aug. 15, 2022, in the latest attempted attack on Coalition forces and our partners.”
There are roughly 900 troops in the area, mostly special forces operators.
The statement continued, “Several rockets failed to launch and were recovered by Coalition Forces and their Syrian Democratic Forces partners before they could pose an additional threat to the local population.”
Maj. Gen. John Brennan, the OIR commander, added, “Thankfully, on this occasion, there were no casualties and no damage reported.
“However, attacks like this risk both the lives of innocent civilians and important infrastructure due to their indiscriminate nature.
“The Coalition is proud to be a reliable partner in the efforts to maintain the lasting defeat of ISIS, and our commitment is unwavering despite these reckless actions by those responsible.”
We continue to see our enemies taunt our troops.
It is happening with Iran, Russia, China, and even North Korea getting in on the fun.
These are four countries that were mostly silent when Trump was in office.
So you tell me how Joe Biden is making this country safer.
