No Taps Back?

So, the current status of our game of missile tag with the Islamic republic seems a little lopsided to me, since in response to us blowing up one of their generals, they blew up some dirt near runways we've been using.

Iran's news agency is reporting a different story for domestic consumption, of course:
"Early estimates indicate heavy US casualties in Iran's missile attack," an informed IRGC Intelligence Department told FNA Wednesday morning.

"According to the reports sent by our sources in the region to this moment, at least 80 US arm personnel have been killed and around 200 others wounded," he said, adding that the wounded have been evacuated from Ein Al-Assad on choppers.

He further underlined the strategic importance of Ein Al-Assad airbase to the US, and mentioned that the military center provided backup for US army drones.

"Some 20 sensitive points of this base were struck by 15 missiles, resulting in the destruction of a considerable number of drones and helicopters," the source added, explaining that some of the targets have been destroyed in a single strike resulted from the high-explosive power of the warheads and serial explosions.

He reiterated that the US army was on high alert, but failed to show proper reaction.
There was also the typical death-to-America rhetoric from their maximum leader, telling the people that they had successfully slapped America's face and crushed our bones and the usual et cetera. I'd take this with the usual giant-sized salt lick.

Dude, if there were eighty fresh flag-draped coffins, wild horses wouldn't be able to keep NBC and CNN from reporting on that stuff, but if you want to call it even Steven at this point, I'm good if you're good.
