Normally this kind of thing occurs in the shadows, in remote corners of contested areas. When events edge closer to the glare of the media spotlight, it is usually a sign that things are getting to the boiling point. Soldiers dressed in US uniforms were allowed to pass through Iraqi checkpoints to reach a secure building where US and Iraqi soldiers were meeting to discuss "security issues". And things turned very ugly. Read the report and say a prayer for our troopers. And prepare for things to get ugly between us and the Iranians. The gloves are coming off.
