Without Evidence of Assailant, United States Military Attacks Yemen’s Houthis in Retaliation for Missiles Fired Near a US Destroyer

After Attacking Yemen’s Houthis, US Admits They Don’t Know Who Fired Missiles:

(Jason Ditz) Yesterday, the United States attacked and destroyed a series of radar stations belonging to the Shi’ite Houthis in Yemen, along the Red Sea coast. This was described as retaliation for the missiles fired sort of near a US destroyer off shore, and presented as preventing future such strikes.

Yet today, Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook admitted that the US still hasn’t actually made any determination who fired those missiles in the first place. It is unclear why they retaliated against the Houthis, who denied involvement, apart from Cook saying that the US believes Iran has “been supportive of the Houthi rebels.”

As I’ve said before, the “Occupy Rectum” movement is definitely a most enduring one! It’s hard to believe that it is STILL going strong, after all these centuries! It’s all good, though. I’ll just continue to maintain my position: standing upright, facing the horizon, secure in the knowledge that the ASS is no place for the HEAD to be!

Remember the Kuwaiti Incubator Baby HOAX back in 1991, which was used as the pretext for America’s FIRST Gulf War? No?
