U.S. President Biden Admits Airstrikes Have Failed To Stop The Houthis


The Guardian: US carries out fifth strike against Houthis as Biden admits bombing isn’t stopping attacks  

Defiant Houthi leader mocks US president and calls for boycott of Israeli goods as Biden tells reporters attacks are ‘going to continue’ 

The US has carried out a fifth strike against Houthi rebel targets in Yemen, even as Joe Biden acknowledged that bombing the rebels has yet to stop their attacks on shipping in the Red Sea. 

Late on Thursday US warplanes targeted anti-ship missiles that “were aimed into the southern Red Sea and prepared to launch,” according to US Central Command.

Time and manpower were not wasted. Live fire for war obviates the need for a training exercise.

But the meme of wasted manpower and time must keep you warm in Russia.

But I agree Joe Biden is a fumb duck. His pinprick strike would be like the Japanese launching a mere 3 planes on December 7, 1941 and expecting the Americans to bend the knee.
