Blow-back? This is so funny. I went onto the Urban Dictionary to look for the definition of blow-back or “blowback” and this was the fourth definition:
ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha,
Or if you prefer:
That was EXACTLY the word I was looking for. Instead of blowback I could have posted this:

Of course not. That would imply that they can learn from their mistakes. Even worse, it would imply that it was a mistake in the first place. It was not a mistake. Just like the invasion of Libya was not a mistake. Just like the dismemberment of Yemen was not a mistake. There are no mistakes. This is what the good book says:
"The words of his mouth were smoother than butter,
but war was in his heart: his words were softer
than oil, yet were they drawn swords".(Psalm 55:1)
Iran killed an American contractor, wounding many. We strongly responded, and always will. Now Iran is orchestrating an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq. They will be held fully responsible. In addition, we expect Iraq to use its forces to protect the Embassy, and so notified!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 31, 2019
Iraq is 60% Shia. The war they fought was due to Saddam trying to grab all the oil in the southwest with the west’s backing including chemical weapons that Germany, USA & UK supplying the raw materials and laughing about it.
Last year, a top Iranian Revolutionary Guards official responded to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s recent policy speech targeting Iran’s presence in Iraq and Syria, arguing it was the U.S. that was unwelcome. Brigadier General Yadollah Javani, the lieutenant commander for the elite force’s political affairs wing, said that Pompeo’s remarks “indicate that he has been sleeping over the past 40 years and is unaware of what has happened during these years in the world and the region.” The newly appointed top U.S. diplomat devoted his first major foreign policy speech on Monday to condemning the Shiite Muslim revolutionary government that has led Iran since toppling a pro-West monarchy in 1979 and has expanded the country’s foothold in the region. “Iran has been present in Iraq and Syria at the invitation of the legitimate governments of these countries, and sided with the regional nations based on the common interests of the countries,” Javani told Iran’s semiofficial Tasnim News Agency. “If anyone should leave the region, it would be the meddlesome U.S., which has done nothing but damaging the region during these years,” he continued.
