Pentagon Threatens More Retaliation despite the confusion.
*Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook admitted that the US still hasn’t
actually made any determination who fired those missiles in the first place
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.”
Still, this act in haste and repent at leisure attitude doesn’t appear to
be changing, with Cook vowing the US would “be prepared to respond again”
if they think ships off the Yemeni coast are threatened, with the implied
threat that they’ll attack the Houthis some more, whether or not they ever
determine if the Houthis did anything.
*Pentagon officials are also trying to insist that their attacks on the
Houthis are totally distinct
the ongoing Saudi war against the Houthis, **which the US is already
heavily involved in, meaning this amounts to a second, separate war against
the Houthis, with even less of a pretext. The Pentagon appears
uncomfortable with connecting their heedless attacks to the myriad war
crimes in the extent war.*
The Houthis reiterated today that they had nothing to do with the missiles
fired near the US ship, and insisted they consider the US attacks “
They warned that they have the right to defend themselves from future US
