Congressmen demand that the Pentagon present a clear plan and strategy to combat Yemeni rebels

The American expert community is commenting on the situation that is emerging around the actions of the Houthis in the Red Sea. Let us remind you that the Yemeni group continues to attack commercial ships and warships. And not only drums are used drones, but also anti-ship missiles. Some of them break through the “dome” of missile defense. To neutralize them (fortunately, the speed is not as high as the same Houthis would like), American ships have already used the ship’s anti-aircraft gun system at least once. He shot down an anti-ship missile less than 1 nautical mile from the side of the destroyer.

American military experts, commenting on the situation, say that one gets the impression that the US command does not have any clear strategy to counter the Yemeni Houthis. It is noteworthy that this opinion is shared not only by retired military personnel invited as experts on certain American talk shows, but also by current congressmen.



In the House of Representatives, Republicans are demanding that Lloyd Austin's department provide a clear plan for further actions of the “coalition” created against the Houthis. Moreover, there are voices that, by and large, the Pentagon was unable to create any full-fledged coalition this time, since several NATO and Middle East countries at once diplomatically responded that they did not have enough resources for the war in the Red Sea.

To date, the US Department of Defense has not provided any clear answer regarding the existence of a plan for war with the Yemeni rebels. Strikes from the sea and air do not particularly reduce the activity of the Houthis, and the introduction of American troops into Yemen could put an end to the aspirations of the Democratic Party to retain the presidency for another 4 years.

      Oh, how smart! Present the plan to them! You should try to draw it yourself! How many of their pants sit in the Senate-Congress!
      And in general, the main pentagonist is in pain.

        The situation in the Red Sea showed the whole world that the current United States is a talker and a show-off.
        They will now also prepare a super plan to defeat the fishermen. Truly, I haven’t heard anything funnier for a long time. But I would like to separately understand the main goal? That is, WHAT EXACTLY DO MATTRESSES WANT TO ACHIEVE???

        By and large, this is a plan for war with Iran.

      What if, by chance, one or two Ukrov sea mines that fall from their anchors drift to the Red Sea and help the Houthis fulfill their tasks related to the US Navy?

        There must be a plan!
        It doesn’t matter that this plan may go to waste after the first 15-20 minutes of a real battle.
        It is important that the commander put his thoughts in order BEFORE the battle and clearly state on paper at least what he is trying to achieve in this battle...

        As Sun Tzu said:
        The rule of war is to do not rely on the enemy not coming, but rely on what I can meet him; don't rely on him not to attack, but rely on the fact that I will make it impossible for me to attack myself for him.

            Galosh - Diamond? Who suddenly suffered a technical malfunction and fled to his native shores, depriving the coalition of England?

      After such a fiasco, Americans are still gaining courage to talk about a possible war with Russia and China. Although they are as accustomed to lying as we can breathe. Let them practice with Arabs in slippers for five years, maybe they’ll learn something. Although I am more confident that the Houthis will learn faster, especially if more modern weapons are delivered to them from unknown sources.
