DEVELOPING: U.S. Navy officials say the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt is steaming toward the waters off Yemen and will join other American ships prepared to intercept any Iranian vessels carrying weapons to the Houthi rebels fighting in Yemen.

US Navy stationing aircraft carrier and escort ship in Yemeni waters to intercept Iranian weapons shipments

Seems things could be ramping up yet again. I can only wonder if Russian warships will be sent to escort Iranian ships traveling through the area.

Don't they know that only the US can arm rebels out there?

Stupid things happening with increasing frequency.
Wish they would slow it down a bit.

So, like, if they are going to Syria, will the U.S. Navy give them an escort, or show them a short cut?
You know you're screwed when...

Great the peace prize winner rushing to get us involved in a civil war... And some idiots still think there is a lick of difference between him and bush.

This doesn't look good. Unless this is another bargaining chip Iran wants to use in the sanctions deal. The fools are in dangerous waters...pun intended.

I doubt anything will happen. Even if it did, it wouldn't be Iran behind the attack.

What's worrying in my opinion is the way FOX is reporting this. I don't think there's anything especially unusual or different in what the US is doing with the aircraft carrier. I think FOX is treading some seriously dangerous ground by reporting it the way they are.

My take.

You can almost picture the Israelis salivating at the possibilities of an attack by Mos...err um the "Iranians".

White House official statements...



White House spokesman Josh Earnest would not comment specifically on any Navy movements in Yemeni waters, but said the U.S. has concerns about Iran's "continued support for the Houthis.

"We have seen evidence that the Iranians are supplying weapons and other armed support to the Houthis in Yemen. That support will only contribute to greater violence in that country. These are exactly the kind of destabilizing activities that we have in mind when we raise concerns about Iran's destabilizing activities in the Middle East."

He said "the Iranians are acutely aware of our concerns for their continued support of the Houthis by sending them large shipments of weapons."

The news article itself is kind of silly. Thanks to the OP for posting it. There are ALWAYS one or two carriers in the area. (And if you count the smaller carriers in a Marine Expeditionary Group, there are always two or three in the area.) The Roosevelt ALWAYS has with it an ENTIRE Carrier Strike Group, which has AT LEAST seven or eight ships with it: several destroyers, a cruiser, a fast attack sub, a supply ship, and various hangers-on that join and leave the group at irregular intervals, so the article saying there are "8 or 9" US ships in the area now is a no-brainer. It's just a part of the Strike Group.

Nothing has fundamentally changed. The policy has been this way for several years now. This is a fluff piece with little thought behind it.

I get so tired of these war mongering government leaders. The entire population of the world should stand in unison and raise their middle finger to these government leaders. The soldiers and rebels of the world should lay down their rifles and say enough is enough. It's disgusting that the minority who run this world can also destroy it.

I think you nicely hit that square on the head. Great observational 'whatever' brilliantly executed.

Has the world declared weapons to the country off limits. Why does the US decide they cannot have weapons when we supply anyone, any time, when it is the interest of some part of the US government even if against US laws.

Another pot shot at the sinking vessel known as world peace.

I only hope this doesn't turn into a "Countdown to Looking Glass" scenario..

Well Iran just did their practice attack on a US carrier with all their little motorboats so they are prepared to sink a cardboard carrier. When they attack the real thing and all die, then there will be a story here.
