I smell the false-flag behind the supposed Houthi attack.

Gulf of Tonkin all over again! That was a deliberate fraud perpetrated by the US in August of 1964 to find an excuse to start bombing North Vietnam. US spokespersons piously lied about 2 US Navy warships coming under attack by NVA gunboats. The US propagandists even put out TV videos ‘showing’ the attack. All false. This time it is a Saudi false flag operation using special forces to show that ‘houthis’ ‘attacked’ US warships with ‘C-802 missiles’. Of course it had to be in full coordination with the US Navy and Washington. Indeed, a tiger never can change its… Read more »

Just as even the US was going to start cutti g KSA off, dummy Iranians attack the US. Has to be one of stupidest strategic own- goals ever seen. Not only did the Houthis hand KSA a limitless credit card for military spending, but now the US has an excuse to help.

Sooo dumb, but I imagine Iran doesnt much care what happens to Yemen.

Iran isn’t directly implied and they’re not that stupid. And I doubt that Houthis tried such strike as they don’t shoot outside of territorial waters usually. The most likely thing to have happened is that some Saudi-coalition country shot missiles to provoke a false flag but in some ways, it failed : an Aegis-frigate has more than serious multiple-layers defence systems, they can even down low-orbitting satellites or ballistic missiles.

I will hold my breath waiting for evidence implicating the Saudi coalition, evidence that disproves what the US Navy clearly has. Or, like every other Arab, you just _know_ whats true, facts and evidence be damned, lol.

Do you really think that with all the intelligence and surveillance assets the US has focused on that corner of Yemen right now, that the Navy does not know exactly what happened? I dont think someone can even take a dump in a Yemeni military installation right now without the US knowing its density and corn-to-dookie ratio.
