The good news: No U.S. Casualties. The bad news: Of course they're going to retaliate.
The raid was launched from inside Iraq, with the consent of the Iraqi government and the approval of the US President. With this operation, the President sends an important message to ISIS leaders and fighters, who think they are largely protected from targeting by Western militaries. It also sends an important message to America and our allies, that the US will, in fact, take tactical risks in order to protect US personnel and to target terrorists, wherever they might try to hide.
