    US missiles destroy Houthi-controlled radar sites on Yemen coast

    http://www.foxnews.com/world/2016/10...men-coast.html


    The U.S. launched Tomahawk cruise missiles at three coastal radar sites
    in Houthi-controlled territory on Yemen’s Red Sea coast in response to the missiles that were fired at U.S. warships in the last five days.

    Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook said in a statement that the sites were destroyed. The USS Nitze launched the missiles.

    The strikes marked the first shots fired by the U.S. in anger against the Iran-backed Houthis in Yemen’s long-running civil war. Officials haven't provided information on casualties from the U.S. missiles fired early Thursday.

    Cook said President Barack Obama authorized the strikes at the recommendation of Defense Secretary Ash Carter and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joseph Dunford. He added that these were limited self-defense strikes conducted to protect U.S. personnel, ships and freedom of navigation.

    Meanwhile, the state news agency Saba— under Houthis' control— quoted an unnamed military official as saying that US accusations that a US destroyer had come under attack from areas under control of Houthis were false. He said, "all these claims are totally untrue and that the popular committees (Houthi militias) have nothing to do with such action."

    He added, "such claims are part of the general context of creating false justifications to escalate assaults and cover up the continuous crimes committed by the aggression against the Yemeni people, along with the blockade imposed on it, and after the increasing condemnations to such barbaric and hideous crimes against Yemenis."

    Sharaf loqman, spokesman for the Yemeni army, called it an "American farce to find a reason to interfere in Yemen directly after failure of the Saudis."

    He said that the army never targets ships outside the territorial waters and only those that enter the Yemeni waters come under attack.

    A U.S. official confirmed to Fox News on Wednesday that another missile was fired from Houthi-held territory in Yemen targeting the USS Mason. The warship was not hit and there were no injuries.

    The incident Wednesday evening unfolded not far from where two missiles were fired at the USS Mason and the USS Ponce on Sunday.

    The missile attacks came on the heels of two other attacks against Saudi sites. A ballistic missile fired from Yemen apparently targeted a Saudi air base near the Muslim holy city of Mecca, the deepest strike yet into the kingdom by Shiite rebels and their allies. The rebels fired another two missiles into the Saudi Jizan region along the border on Monday, wounding two foreigners who worked there, the local civil defense said in a statement.

    The Houthis and their allies have offered no reason for the launches, though they came after a Saudi-led airstrike targeting a funeral in Yemen's capital killed more than 140 people and wounded 525 on Saturday.

    The U.S. cruise missile launches come as U.S. considers withdrawing its support for the Saudi-led coalition fighting the Houthis following Saturday's airstrike on the funeral and other troubling incidents of civilian casualties as a result of the Saudi bombing campaign.

    Human rights groups have expressed outrage over the deaths and accused the U.S. of complicity, leading the White House to say it was conducting a "review" to ensure U.S. cooperation with longtime partner Saudi Arabia is in line with "U.S. principles, values and interests."

    The last missile attack on a U.S. Naval ship was on the USS Stark in May 1987, which was in the middle of a six-month patrol in the Persian Gulf when it was hit by two missiles fired from an Iraqi fighter plane. A total of 37 sailors were killed during the attack.

    The "self defense" strikes. How did the Yemeni people get all the way to the US to "launch failed missile attack" on US warships?

    I mean the US is not at war with Yemen right? There is no reason Washington would be parking warships off the Yemeni coast, right? That would be aggressive acts of war, and Washington certainly would not be the aggressor.

    Washington is certainly not assisting Salafi Arabia with its genocidal extermination and starvation of Yemen, right?
    It is not like Washington is directing Saudi bombing targets, right?
    Washington is not supplying Saudi dictatorship with the bombs it is using to exterminate the Yemenis, right?
    It is not like the US is assisting in the starvation blockade of Yemen, right?
    It is not like Washington is training the invading Saudis , right?

    Obviously the bombing of Yemeni radar so they cannot defend themselves from Saudi bombers, is purely a "self-defense" act for the very survival of the USA. Without it, we would all be under threat. Purely "self defense". We need to kick those Yemenis out of our coastal waters.

    Well, that seems rather fortuitous for the MIC. "Look, they're shooting at us"!! As our munitions literally rain down on them.

    And in response to the OP Title..... Yes. They did start WW3. It's being fought through proxies and in cyberspace... but make no mistake the Great Game is afoot..... perhaps the greatest and most terrible game the world has ever seen.

    The chess pieces have been positioned for the last 25 years by TPTB on both sides. First the pawns, and then perhaps a knight or bishop will be lost in the foray... and before too long, our rooks, queen, and king will be at risk.
