So they wanna play rough?



First of all, let me say, I'm not picking on you per se, i've been thinking about writing something like this for a while and the more posts I see like yours the more I want to post it and so, here we are...

This attitude really gets to me, macho bullsnip at its finest. I mean, so what if American has nukes and fancy weaponry coming out of it's wazoo (and we all know it does) but until they invent weapons that don't kill innocent civilians or better yet they find a way to fight wars without the loss of human life, we should not be wanting it. All this stuff you hear like "if they want a war, they can bring it on" or "I'd like to see them try" all it says to me is "U.S.A, U.S.A,, U.S.A", (I don't think any other country in the world beats their chest and shouts their countries initials out loud). Basically, when you come out with this stuff you're essentially calling for the death of your own countrymen because it doesn't how good your weaponry is, if they do "wanna play rough" they are gonna kill some of your people. I am really losing faith in the human race fast. I don't know about the rest of you but I would like a world for my 3 kids to grow up in...

The attack was probably carried out by Hezbollah. In the Lebanon War they've hit an Israeli corvette with an anti-ship missile. They would have no issues with attacking US vessels.

The Iranians have been fighting a proxy war against the United States for several years now.

They know attacking directly would result in the destruction of the regime, so they use dumbass rebel groups who will do anything for a buck and a crate of ammo.



Which makes no sense whatsoever.

The Houthis are fighting ISIS ruling the area.

Iran is backing the Houthis, which indicates that Iran is also fighting ISIS.

Which indicates that the Houthis, Iran, and the USA are all on the same side fighting the same enemy.

So if one wants to take out an enemy, one does not attack the dudes fighting on the same side as you.



I'd like to know where the info came from that it was the Houthis (or Iran) that actually attacked the US.

None of this makes any sense at all.

It smells more like propaganda false flag crap than anything else.

That is literally the only option aside from a false flag attack. If it was a false flag, well this

They weren't hit because the ships targeted are designed to shoot down incoming missiles. If they were hit, it would be a false flag. The defenses worked, so it's a false flag.

Israeli ships don't have the same defenses a US vessel does. Attempting an attack and successfully attacking are two different worlds.

Hmm.

We've been conducting air strikes off and on against Yemen since at least 2009. This just sounds odd.

It does seem a bit too convenient seeing as the Saudis are not having their way there, but it seems too obvious to be a false flag. It seems like this is one of those situations where the Houthis thought they would be able to hit another ship like they did with the Saudis, but didn't realize US tech actually is what is claimed in public. A radar station was taken out. Let's hope that the US involvement ends here and now with this, it's more than a clear statement that they will not win.

believe it or not I feel the same way you just described most of the time.
I more or less jumped at the chance to show some rippin ass american
might for a change only because these assholes struck us first. If things
are on the up and up? You don't fire on america if want your kids to live
as I see it. But I've probably put up more anti war threads than you think
at the moment so hey, don't judge me bro.

No judging going on at all mate


If it wasn't you someone else would have been the trigger for my rant.

It just scares me that, even though around 99% of the population don't want another war, if the 1% want one, there's little we can do to stop it

The problem here is why are we allied with Saudi Arabia or the UAE to begin with.

Anybody remeber a speech about entangling alliances? The Sunni, Shia conflicts should not have us involved over there.

You can't trust a country like Saudi Arabia with the morality they possess and not get involved in immoral actions.

Does anybody know what Reagan sold Iran and Saddam at the time? Why do we keep doing this?

So who are Yemen's allies? Iran, ok. Does that mean Russia by default?

This is scary.

That's two separate attacks, so it can't be a mistake.

I hope it doesn't pop off.


To anti ship missile attacks by a small splinter group (regardless of who backs them) and a response on the radar that guided them isn't enough to "pop off" a full war. It was in Yemen.

Course it is another event in a sinking situation.....

To you.

To those of us who have been in operational environments and dealt with Iran's proxies, not so much.

Honestly... I fail to see a difference between sending in attacks directly and arming the Saudi's with all they need to attack Yemen. So the attacks have a different flag painted on the equipment... accomplices/suspects... what's the difference?

The main responsibility of the ongoing Yemen genocide is on the shoulders of the EU. Mostly the British, and the French backing their Saudi puppets. The main supporters of Saudi Arabia is the EU.
