We discussed whether the attack on the U.S. embassy in Iraq was like the 1979 situation when our embassy in Tehran was overrun. Right now it doesn’t look that way, but it underscores the sectarian violence that Iran is promoting through this new Iraqi-based Shiite group that they are backing.
Reports are that we’ve gotten most of the embassy staff out, which is good, but we have a lot of servicemen and women there so the situation is still very tense.
ACLJ Senior Counsel (and retired Army Lieutenant Colonel) Skip Ash talked about the embassy attack and the situation with Iran:
Right now we have to recognize that the United States is the biggest obstacle to Iranian dreams in the Middle East. Iran wants to have an arc of influence stretching from Iran through Iraq, through Syria and Lebanon, to the very borders of Israel. The United States is the nation that is standing in their way. We’re also the nation that has been reacting to Iran and the terrorist support by going after their economy. The Iranian economy is now a basket case.
Recently this proxy group of Iran has been firing mortar rounds and other types of explosives into U.S. camps and killed an American citizen. The United States responded with a bombing raid on some of their bases. This seems to be a reaction to that.

“Do not be afraid.” Those were the words of the angel who appeared to Mary Magdalene and Mary, the mother of Jesus, according to Matthew 28 : The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said.
