What is the danger of attacking foreign bases in Iraq and Syria?

Military bases and American forces in Iraq and Syria have frequently been subjected to continuous attacks since the middle of last month, in light of the raging war between Israel and the Palestinian factions, an official comment came from Baghdad.

He believed that it is necessary to work with the Kurdistan region, to continue dialogue and discussions between the Kurdish parties, especially the Kurdistan Democratic Party and the Patriotic Union, to find solutions that are in the interest of Iraq.
This announcement came after the escalation of attacks on American forces angered some within the United States Department of Defense.
Some frustrated officials in the Pentagon considered that the strategy adopted to confront Iranian proxies was incoherent or effective.
They also saw that the limited air strikes approved by US President Joe Biden to respond to these attacks failed to stop them and deter the Iranian-backed militia, according to what the Washington Post reported.
