Pentagon: Further Iranian Attempts to Storm US Embassy Will Be Met With ‘Buzz Saw’

Pentagon officials said Thursday that Iran may be planning further attacks on U.S. interests in the Middle East but will be met with a “buzzsaw” if it does.

Speaking to reporters at the Pentagon, Defense Secretary Mark Esper said the United States is prepared to take preemptive action to prevent any further incidents.

“The game has changed,” he said, according to the Associated Press. “We’re prepared to do what is necessary to defend our personnel and our interests and our partners in the region.”

Esper’s remarks come just days after violent protestors and militia members swarmed the U.S. embassy in Baghdad to demand an end to U.S. airstrikes the region. President Donald Trump blamed the violence on an Iranian-backed militia active in Iraq named Kataib Hezbollah.

After fending off the protestors with air support and Iraqi special forces, Pentagon officials sent additional marines to the embassy to beef up security, along with several hundred Army paratroopers from Fort Bragg, N.C.

Without elaborating, Esper said Thursday that U.S. officials have “indications” that Iran may be planning further provocations in the region.

Any attempts to storm the embassy again will be met with what Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said a “buzzsaw” of a military response.

Responses

  1. Ahmed al-Assadi, a spokesman for Iraq’s Popular Mobilisation Forces umbrella grouping of Iran-backed militias and a spokesman for Iraq’s Hashed al-Shaabi military force both claim that, “The American and Israeli enemy is responsible for killing the mujahideen Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and Qassem Soleimani”. Both are Iranian military leaders, in Bagdad.

    It was a targeted attack.

  2. Trump is not the usual American president. As Theodore Roosevelt said: “speak softly and carry a big stick.”

  3. 100% in favor of a buzz-saw response. Attack US property; embassy, southern border, Antifa Portland ‘demonstration’, and die supporting your stupid and illegal cause.

  4. Sounds like they want to create another “attack” on America just like the others going back to the
    Spanish American war.

  5. Send a message: 50 cruise missiles targeting Iran’s Rev Guard establishments.

  6. I say let Iran have Iraq. We cannot help these headchopping savages. Why not let Iran rule these creatures with the only thing they understand. An iron fist and a strong whip hand.

    1. How do you feel about illegal immigration from Mexico. Is their violence really any different?

  7. Not only will they be met with a buzzsaw but the US Marines & 82nd Airborne!
