First Fatalities Confirmed in Houthi Ship Blockade

Who knows what this means.

When American soldiers died in a base in Jordan, Brandon did a bunch of random bombings throughout the entire Middle East, which was shocking and strange, but didn’t result in an immediate backlash.

Of course, shutting down the Red Sea is a much bigger deal than killing some poor sap tripwire niggers.


Three people were killed and several others severely wounded in a Houthi missile attack on a ship in the Gulf of Aden on Wednesday, the US Central Command has said. According to Reuters, they are the first confirmed fatalities in strikes on commercial vessels by the Yemeni armed group.

The Houthis have been targeting merchant ships allegedly linked to Israel in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden with drones and missiles since mid-October last year, saying they are acting in support of the Palestinians amid Israel’s military operation in Gaza.

Missile strikes on targets inside Yemen by the US and UK, which began in December, have so far failed to curb the militant attacks. Russia has criticized Washington and London over the bombings, accusing them of violating international law and “escalating the situation in the region for their own destructive purposes.”

An anti-ship ballistic missile was launched from “Iranian-backed Houthi terrorist-controlled areas of Yemen” at True Confidence, a Barbados-flagged, Liberian-owned bulk carrier in the Gulf of Aden, the US Central Command said in a statement on X (formerly Twitter) on Thursday. Reuters described the ship as Greek-owned.

“The multinational crew reports three fatalities, at least four injuries, of which three are in critical condition, and significant damage to the ship,” CENTCOM said. The crew abandoned the vessel after the strike, it added.

According to the US military, it was the fifth missile fired by Yemeni fighters at ships off the country’s coast in the space of two days. “These reckless attacks by the Houthis have disrupted global trade and taken the lives of international seafarers,” it stressed.

To be clear, these rocket attacks are well within the bounds of valid warfare in response to what the Jews are doing in Gaza.

I agree with the Houthi commander: I’m much more afraid of God than the Jews. Every person on earth should be doing everything they can to stop these Jews, out of fear of God.

It’s hard to imagine any action in response to Gaza that wouldn’t be justified at this point.

A trade blockade is certainly justified.

Oh, someone died?

Yeah, well, it’s been on the news: the Red Sea’s closed to Jews and Jew lovers. You knew that when you drove your boat into Houthi territory.

Importantly, they prove that the US is far from invincible. This is a new world. There is no amount of US missiles that can stop these Houthi drones and cheap guided missiles. For the Red Sea to be opened again, the US would either have to stop the Jews from committing this ongoing slaughter, or they would have to kill everyone in Yemen.

The drone has changed warfare, completely. It is now possible for a small resistance group to push back against the Evil Empire.

The Houthis will eventually sink a US warship.
