U.S. Marine Killed In ISIS Rocket Attack On Iraqi Base

A U.S. Marine was killed Saturday after a base in northern Iraq came under attack by ISIS forces, Defense Department officials said in a statement.

The Marine, who has not yet been identified, is only the second American casualty since the beginning of the U.S. military's operation against ISIS.

The last American death in Iraq occurred in 2014.

The Marine was killed by rocket fire at a base near Makhmur, according to the statement. Several other Marines were wounded in the attack and are being treated for their injuries, the Pentagon said.

"This is the second combat death since the start of Operation Inherent Resolve, and it reminds us of the risks our men and women in uniform face every day," the statement read.

At the base where the attack occurred, American military advisers are helping Iraqi Kurds prepare to wrest Mosul away from ISIS control, The New York Times reported.

The Pentagon said more information would be released about the Marine after his family is notified.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
