[COLOR=#111111]A U.S. Navy destroyer was targeted on Wednesday in a failed missile attack from territory in Yemen controlled by Iran-aligned Houthi rebels, the second such incident in four days, the U.S. military said.

Indications are that the second salvo brought down an incoming missile, one U.S. official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
The renewed attempt to target the U.S. Navy destroyer will add pressure on the U.S. military to retaliate, a move that would represent the first direct U.S. military action against Houthis in Yemen’s conflict. The Pentagon said it would respond "at the appropriate time and in the appropriate manner."
The United States, a longtime ally of Saudi Arabia, has provided aerial refueling of jets from a Saudi-led coalition striking Yemen and it supplies U.S. weapons sales to the kingdom.

Its becoming a “when” situation not “if”. My guess is Obama will do nothing…

Its one thing for a solider to die in combat, its goes with the job and each of us write that BLANK check to the America people that sez ‘this we will defend’.

But to die when the leadership fails so badly as to cost a life of a soldier is they worst possible fate that can be bestowed upon a solider. Hitlery BELONGS in prison for the loss of life in Benghazi and so does Obama…
