DB: When an Iranian ballistic missile strike in Iraq injured scores of U.S. troops in January of last year, Donald Trump immediately sought to downplay the severity of the situation.
“All is well!” he wrote on Twitter at the time, admitting that some troops had “headaches” but the situation was “not very serious.” Since then, at least 110 survivors have been diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury—and The Washington Post reported Friday that at least 33 of them are now being reconsidered for a Purple Heart medal.
At least 30 other troops already received the award for their injuries in the blast, but dozens were overlooked. Earlier this week, CBS News reported one colonel’s claim that he was instructed “not to inquire about the remaining awards or resubmit those awards,” but went ahead anyway.
An Army spokeswoman, Col. Cathy Wilkinson, said the service “will evaluate each award nomination, to include posthumous submissions, expeditiously and on their individual merit in accordance with Army regulations.”
The attack came in the days after Trump authorized the assassination of top Iran general Qassem Soleimani.

Are you sure it wasn’t an Israeli ballistic missile strike? We’re lied to about everything else.
Never thought of that! Doubt it as Iran was announcing they were going to do something as pay back. At least that is what I read in the newpapers haha
But I see your idea – Israel did it to prybar the USA to launch a nuclear ICBM attack against Iran and this was a false flag provocation.
Similar to USS Liberty attack trying to pin it on the Egyptians.
If Israel launched the “Iranian” ICBM missles, then go next step and ask would anyone admiit it to it or tell truth about it?
The Israelis? (no) the Iranians? (no) the USA? (no) Maybe the Russians but no one would listen and eventually blame Putin for it as it always goes these days.
If the Iranians to exclaim we didnt launch those missles Israel did! Who would believe it, and if it is true and could be proven beyond doubt still no one would believe it. Strange how it works those layers of the rotting onions we call reality.
Maybe the ICBM attack was from the German DVD! (Shrimpleton)
Trump did get revenge for the ICBM attacks,
Better idea than a precision nuclear strike or a massive cruise missle attack, he was advised to attack Iran with a much more deadly bioweaponed virus than what was used on China. and so it evened the score.
Then blamed Chinese epidemic for the Iranian one.
Did the US ever do anything “above the table” in retaliation for the ICBM attacks?
Something was expected but NO, nothing was ever done you would read in the papers a least.
Strange…makes you think something was done.
81 countries got their first cases from Iranian travelers, not chinese. There is one indicator of 100 I could list.
What was used on Iran is what spread into Italy Spain, Europe, New York and everywhere. Chinese stuff washed itself out long ago. It was a sofl-kill concoction, just symptoms of really bad flu, old people will die of it anyways, and it doesnt kill kids either so the humanitarian fascist bleeding hearts in the know OK with it.
After he did it, no one anywhere could or can or want to challenge the madness of if all.
