Default Missiles from rebel-held Yemen territory fired at U.S. Navy destroyer, Saudi military

Quote:
A U.S. Navy destroyer off the coast of Yemen came under attack Sunday night in the Red Sea, with two ballistic missiles fired at it in the same region where an Emirati-leased vessel was badly damaged by rocket fire last week.

The USS Mason was not hit in the attack, said Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman. The incident occurred about 7 p.m. as the ship, deployed from Norfolk, Va., was in international waters. Both missiles splashed down in the water before reaching the Mason, he said.

“We assess the missiles were launched from Houthi-controlled territory in Yemen,” he said, referring to rebels in that country. “The United States remains committed to ensuring freedom of navigation everywhere in the world, and we will continue to take all necessary steps to ensure the safety of our ships and our service members.”

Davis declined to say what kind of missile was launched or how far it was fired, citing the security of U.S. troops. The attack came one day after Saudi jets launched airstrikes on a funeral hall in Yemen that killed at least 100 people, and the Houthis responded by launching a missile at the The King Fahd Air Base in Saudi Arabia.

People don't give a **** about what 'Murica thinks anymore.

Obama has turned us in to a laughing stock. No one takes him seriously anymore. They all know he is phoning it in now.

Officials say U.S. missiles destroy radar sites on Yemen coast

WASHINGTON — U.S.-launched Tomahawk cruise missiles destroyed three coastal radar sites in Houthi-controlled territory on Yemen's Red Sea Coast early Thursday, officials said, a retaliatory action that followed two incidents this week in which missiles were fired at U.S. Navy ships.

The strikes marked the first shots fired by the U.S. in anger against the Houthis in Yemen's long-running civil war. The U.S. previously only provided logistical support and refueling to the Saudi-led coalition battling Yemen's Shiite rebels known as Houthis and their allies, including supporters of Yemen's former president, Ali Abdullah Saleh.


How it should be... you can't try to be civil with cave people.

The flip flop warriors are 100x more brave the pampered Saudi army, which the US supports. Heard they sank one of your former toys last week.

They obviously have missiles capable of taking down ships.
