So why are Iranian-backed Houthi rebels firing at one of the U.S. Navy’s destroyers, sailing off the coast of Yemen? It’s a puzzler, all right.
From Fox News:
“Iranian-backed Houthi rebels fired two missiles at a U.S. Navy destroyer operating off the coast of Yemen in the Red Sea on Sunday — though neither missile hit the ship, the Pentagon said in a statement.There's a typo in that last sentence. It should read:
“Though the American warship wasn’t struck, the ship was definitely targeted, a U.S. defense official told Fox News. This dramatic escalation comes a week after the U.S. Navy sent warships to the area when a United Arab Emirates flagged auxiliary ship was destroyed off the coast of Yemen by the Houthis.” “‘In the first instance USS Mason employed onboard defensive measures..."
“U.S. officials have long accused Iran of supplying missiles and other weapons to the Houthis.”......
"US officials fail to accuse themselves after suppling Iran with billions of taxpayer dollars to buy missiles for the Houthis.”

Good job to the crew of the USS Mason, dodging the Iranian missiles you had to help purchase.
It's too bad you're under attack from Washington as well as Tehran.
