UPDATE: Iraqi media is reporting that just one rocket landed at its target, striking one of the entrances to the base and wounding an Iraqi security member who was guarding it.
Initial reports are coming in about a rocket strike that targeted Taji Base, an Iraqi military compound that houses US troops. While reports have been inconsistent, with some indicating the attack was “fierce” and others claiming that only one or two rockets struck their target, it seems that for now the only reported casualty is one Iraqi security member who was injured by the blasts.

It’s time to bring our troops home from the Middle East and let those nations square up and deal with their own issues as they please. Let nature take its course.
