Foot in the Ass Coming: U.S. sends Navy destroyer to patrol off Yemen as a show of force to the rogue nation of Iran

 USS Cole

Expect the corrupt media machine to be on the side of Iran and portray them as the innocent party while demonizing the Trump administration as bullies. 
None of  it will matter because Iran deserves a foot up their ass and it's lomg overdue that the United States is the foot! 
 
Yahoo News reports the United States has sent a Navy destroyer to patrol off the coast of Yemen to protect waterways from Houthi militia aligned with Iran, two U.S. officials told Reuters on Friday, amid heightened tension between Washington and Tehran.

The USS Cole arrived in the vicinity of the Bab al-Mandab Strait off southwestern Yemen where it will carry out patrols, including escorting vessels, the officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

In 2000, the USS Cole was attacked when al Qaeda bombers steered a boat full of explosives into the side of the American warship while it refueled in the Yemini port of Aden, killing 17 U.S. sailors and wounding about three dozen others.

While U.S. military vessels have carried out routine operations in the region in the past, this movement, first reported by Reuters, is part of an increased presence there aimed at protecting shipping from the Houthis, the officials said.

The Houthis are allied to Iran, which is at odds with the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump. The country recently test launched a ballistic missile.

Trump said on Thursday “nothing is off the table” in dealing with Iran, a day after his national security adviser, Michael Flynn said he was putting Iran “on notice.”

  1. I don't think that it's a coincidence that the USS Cole is the ship that was deployed..........

    1. I think you have a very good point. The Cole means a lot symbolically. Good catch.

  2. I hope they have a vastly improved command team on the Cole. The last time the CO wouldn't let the sailors carry loaded weapons on watch and all they had were empty guns. It seems a good command chief would have allowed for a way for the sailors to quickly arm their weapons instead of standing helplessly while a rubber boat full of explosives ran into them.
