‘Limited self-defense strikes’: US military destroys 3 ‘radar sites’ in Yemen

The US military has carried out a series of “limited self-defence strikes” in Yemen, the Pentagon has announced. The attack, authorized by President Obama, was carried out in retaliation to recent attacks on the US naval destroyer, USS Mason.

According to the Pentagon’s initial assessments, three “radar sites” in the Houthi rebel-controlled area of Yemen were destroyed in the attack.

    Good news, they waited so long that anything of value was likely moved before the strike.

    It’s only fun until someone loses an Iraq.

    So the US is fighting for the Saudis and defeating the minority Houthis. I thought the US loved stand up for Rebels. It only matters when it is Rebels that serve their agenda.

    Which is why I stated all along that no matter who is in power whether it is Obama, Trump, W., or other leaders from the Democraps and Rebloodlicans they will engage in endless and they do not care who is the enemy because the centre of US politics is endless war, the war economy, and serving special interest groups.

    The nuclear deal was and still is just a temporary measure because the US would not hesitate even under a war president like Obama because Obama’s master are the weapons manufacturers and those in high finance and those that seek more wars for just some employment.

    You have to understand that the US has had 25+ wars done since WW2. This was all done without caring about a nation’s sovereignty, international law and conventions, and / or taking and talking with a government or allied governments during those processes. This is the true nature of the USA and they are doing this because they are trying to provoke or cause a confrontation.

    Remember that nothing happens on purpose. People on the interventionist left and right in the mainstream should know that conspiracies exist within and outside movements and the biggest perpetrators of all are normally within conservative movements. So it is within the realm of possibility that this is to serve many agendas and most notably the Saudi agenda.

    Never forget that when Trump says he wants a new deal and would attack Iran that without realization he is supporting Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States!!

    The yanks supporting the jihadi headchoppers who did 9/11. You couldn’t make it up.

    Iran > Saudi Arabia

    This is why America can’t win wars any more. What the hell is this limited strike crap? They should spend a week carpet bombing the place with B52’s, then send them a bill for the ammo and fuel expended, with the threat that they will follow up with another week of carpet bombing if they don’t pay up before the sun goes down.

    • Knowing Obama, they probably knocked over a couple TV antennas.

    So Hillary is in the radar station construction business now?

    Mason’s response should have been a counter battery strike as well as targeting radar sites… all, while the first inbound missiles were still in the air.

      Wild Weasel attacks are usually the precursor to further activities. Wonder if Obama’s going to pull a “Can’t have an election at the moment, what with a war going on” bullshit.

        Who fuken knows?… I really believe that anything is possible with this administration, there’s suddenly a lot of Russian bashing coming from the left, and talk of war… it, does not look good.
