U.S. Navy Gathering Evidence On Who Fired Two Missiles At the U.S. Navy Off The Coast Of Yemen



Reuters: U.S. sees mounting evidence of Houthi role in strike on U.S. warship

The United States is seeing growing indications that Iran-allied Houthi rebels, despite denials, were responsible for Sunday's attack on a Navy destroyer off the Yemen coast, U.S. officials told Reuters.

The rebels appeared to use small skiffs as spotters to help direct a missile attack on the warship, said U.S. officials, who are not authorized to speak publicly because the investigation is ongoing.

The United States is also investigating the possibility that a radar station under Houthi control in Yemen might have also "painted" the USS Mason, something that would have helped the Iran-aligned fighters pass along coordinates for a strike, said the officials.

Neither of the two missiles fired from Houthi-controlled territory on Sunday hit the USS Mason or the nearby USS Ponce, an amphibious transport dock. But the incident threatens to trigger the first direct U.S. military action against Houthis in Yemen's conflict, even if it is limited to one-off retaliation.

There is no evidence that Iran provides anything but moral support to The Revolutionary Commitee, the Ansrullah Movement and the People of Yemen.

On the other hand, Saudi Arabia despite slashing wages by 20%, cancelling all bonuses, not paying Foreign Workers at all for the last 6 months,

Needs somebody to take over running their failed Yemen War.

This "Gulf of Tonkin" incident will provide the USGovernment with cover from the taxpayers, for taking on the financial burden of the Saudi War on Yemen.

Fazman,
The next attack will not come from off the Yemeni coast.

Jay,

I thought the same thing when I first read about this. USS Maddox the remix.

The Yemenis really have no reason to lie about firing at this ship. It's part of a blockade, and supporting an attack on the country. If they went for it, it'd be celebrated and we'd get video of the missiles launching just as we do when they fire Scarabs at the Saudis.

That is an interesting comment.

Don't worry Anzino, US Taxpayers can afford another failed war, easily.

Better yet, you don't have to fight it much, you just have to start footing all the Saudi's and Gulfies bills and debts.

LMAO.
