The U.S. military launched air strikes targeting three operational and weapons storage facilities — two in Syria and one in Iraq. The US said that drone strikes were being launched from these locations at US interests in Iraq.
The US used F-15 and F-16 jets for the airstrikes.
There were five drone attacks over the past three months against or near US military bases in Iraq.

So potential wars should be ignored?
You must be a Biden voter.
I do not follow any religion and am a freethinker that would like all humanity to be one. Also I dislike any ism that divides humanity be it Nationalism or Religion. Agree that Islam has some disagreeable traits but so did Christianity in the past and the slip still shows sometimes. The one part I strongly disagree with your comment is that you overlook the absolutely mad, inhuman and horrid decision that the USA took to invade Iraq. There are so many things I love about the US but it's got this bouts of insanity which seems to reoccur every 30 to 40 years.
US companies invest all over the world while respecting local governments and cultures. We could just own Iraq God knows we paid for it in blood and treasure but we don’t colonize we strengthen & cooperate. US does not need to do logistics for Iraq. Yes they have as most Muslim countries have done a genocide on Christians & Jews for centuries. Not a religion of peace but of descrimination and death, sad.
Biden isn't and hasn't ever been a high level politician. Traditionally he's always been a gaff prone also-ran who was willing to lie and cheat to win, and been ran out of previous presidential races for having done so.
He wouldn't be anywhere right now if obama hadn't picked him as a running mate.
This is really the quickest I've lost all respect for someone I've admired greatly.
I hope it's either a false Goat or Alzheimer or some other dementia setting in.
yeah, but don't ever forget: Trump is the great Satan!
Not so long ago, these were not considered poor countries. Then America got more involved.
Look at this image…
The look of horror in the face of Boris Johnson when Biden interrupts him . Biden erroneously believed that Boris had forgotten to introduce the president of South Africa, probably because he did not recognize his name when Boris mentioned it a minute earlier.
No wonder Bidens aides want to keep him out of the lime lights…
And did Trump get lost in a restaurant? Did he confuse Syria and Libya when making a policy speech? Did he suddenly start to whisper in the microphone when answering a simple question? Did he confuse the side of his daughter for his wifes side? Did Trump get his own name and the vice presidents name mixed up? Was it necessary for the priminister of GB to hush Trump like he had to hush Biden? And so on, and so on.
Let's be honest here.. It's not the same thing. It's gong to be interesting to see how long you can keep pretending that all is well with Joe…
I've read the same allegations of mental decay many times about Trump. I never took them seriously either. As a Cuba watcher I've seen the real thing…
Why is this information germane to the mission of NextBigFuture?
Do you believe that Biden is in control of the executive branch of the USA? Not just formally, but in reality? Because if you don't, then Goatguy is not forwarding any conspiracy theory.
Note that Biden used to be very talented – as all high level politicians – of talking persuasively and he still retains parts of that talent. But it is clear that his grasp of the subject matters – "Syria"/"Libya" for instance – is so confused that his old verbiage cannot compensate for this. Instead, he reaches for verbal crutches such as saying "come on man, come on", "I shouldn't say this but.." or "I'm going to get in trouble if I say this".
It's problematic that the american public did not get a chance to judge the real democrat president, against whom Trump was competing. Who is he/she? What is his/her/their stance on the issues? What is the character of the real head(s) of the executive branch? That is, if you believe in democracy…
Agree with the 21st Century comments
There are a lot of peaceful Muslims in the US.
Perhaps Iraqi air force should be bombing the extremist Christian sects in the US to protect the peaceful Muslims. Perhaps better still they give the US armed forces support to do the bombings
for the MIC!
Yeah…trying to gauge the general seriousness of a guy who talks with the loveliest optimism about the biggest q>uest of our times deserves a down vote, I should have known 🙂
In the 21st Century, there are people of all nationalities in every country in the World; particularly, there are probably more Iraqi Christians in the US nowadays than there are left in Iraq.
That being said, I'm not sure that the US Armed Forces should be arbitrarily bombing stuff in Iraq; it would be best to give the Iraqi armed forces some logistic support so they can stabilise the country, instead.
Well, your moderation and thoughtfulness in this answer gives me fresh hope again!
I was already thinking that if you get politics that wrong then you can't impossibly be right with that Q>1 thingy either.
And that one's really tickling my feelings…
What is your address? You have won the lottery and we would like to send you your "winnings". No need to cry like a sissy when your package arrives.
That fat leader of a starving population. You sure can pick'm Da-dumy.
That is overshadowed by his obvious idiocy.
As libertarians point out: War is the health of the state. However, don't blame specific victims, it is a distraction the System encourages. Neurosis is unconscious and involuntary. "Once understood, the System must be destroyed" -Janov
Can we now read again comments from the former Herr Ziegenpeter when he was still bright? I mean with scientific facts and so on, not too vulgar and free from conspiracy stuff.
"is their freedom so much less important? "
Given the abstractly unhinged meanderings of Herr Biden, it is fairly clear that the title of this article aught to have been "Biden's handlers order him to sign authorization for the Military to burn a few tens-of-millions in munitions, so that The Industrial Complex can lobby Congress to authorize an ever larger (and preposterous) amount of funding for the 2020 munitions allocations".
See, doesn't that fit better?
The dotard is hardly in control of his bowels and sphincter, let alone geostrategic military strikes against ritualistically debased enemies.
⋅-⋅-⋅ Just saying, ⋅-⋅-⋅
⋅-=≡ GoatGuy ✓ ≡=-⋅
War is the health of the state. Real motives must be couched in simple minded slogans.
Real Troll more likely. More importantly, going to war against poor, mostly Muslim nations is counterproductive, if minimizing terror attacks on US targets is the objective. Blowback is hell!
Are you a real man?
Certainly not the people of Venezuela.
Have you read "The Primal Scream" by Arthur Janov?
Agree with your "interests of a few multinational corporations"
But why are the Americans there?
Those areas are not part of the USA the last time I checked
Looking like a total fool, now that is a common trait of power addicts worldwide. They are addicts, being power addicts, by definition. The race is to see who will *represent* repression of childhood trauma and neurosis for teaching purposes. Will it be the drug war addict, addicted to oppressing addicts? That is one of my top choices. Will it be the commie or naught see authoritarians(such as Dada below)? Too mundane. Too many! Too obvious for interest. The counter phobic homophobe? Funny, but limited numbers. None of them realize they are neurotic, yet. The winner, perhaps, the theocrat? Having that line to the gods sounds good, but they can't agree with each other. See "Beyond Belief": "Dr. Arthur Janov examines the power of beliefs and how they are used as a mechanism for dealing with early trauma that goes as far back as birth. Beliefs are a way to rationalize with pain rooted deep in the unconscious, and reveal that love is a biological need. Dr. Janov applies engrossing case studies and his many years of experience to bring the reader one step closer to understanding human behavior, and how pain can become converted into an idea."

I wouldn't say that the freedom of Iraqis is less important than the freedom of Americans in any free floating sense.
It should be less important to the American government, though.
Sure, other people's freedoms are important too. Not saying that they are not.
But then say that and not that "protect our freedoms" nonsense that Pelosi was spouting. It feels incredibly dishonest.
The people who told Biden that he bombed Syria were probably the same people who told him it was Sunday.
I order you to take your hand off of your uncircumcised apparatus when you finish commenting!
Who is still at the head of Venezuela?
A long and patient noose.
Well the freedom of the Iraqis – is their freedom so much less important?
Also I find it shabby to point at cooperations that make maybe one dollar in Iraq for every hundred the government has lost there.
Protect our freedoms? How does any of this protect OUR freedoms?
It protects the interests of a few multinational corporations with facilities in Iraq, I would say. Seems a bit hypocritical to me, but then the US is a master at that. On the other hand, yes the retaliation was retaliation which is fair… Just don't use the words "protect our freedoms" it feels really shallow and makes you look like a total tool.
Biden ordered nothing, but his handlers did.
