    Houthi Islamic terrorists attacked an oil tanker on Monday evening that was traveling in-between the Gulf of Aden and the Red Sea.

    "At around 4 p.m. EST on December 11, the Motor Tanker STRINDA was attacked by what is assessed to have been an Anti-Ship Cruise Missile (ASCM) launched from a Houthi controlled area of Yemen while passing through the Bab-el-Mandeb," U.S. Central Command said in a statement. "The STRINDA reported damage causing a fire on-board, but no casualties at this time."

    "There were no US ships in the vicinity at the time of the attack, but the USS MASON responded to the M/T STRINDA's mayday call and is currently rendering assistance," the statement added.

    Private intelligence firms confirmed the attack happened before the U.S. military published its statement.

    The British military's United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations posted an alert on Monday evening warning that a vessel had been attacked and that there were flames on board the ship.

    President Joe Biden has come under mounting pressure for not being able to muster the courage to respond to the attacks from the Houthi terrorists and other Iranian-backed Islamic terror groups in the region that have been repeatedly attacking U.S. forces in the region since October 17.

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly told Biden that if the U.S. does not take action against the Yemen-based Houthi terrorists, Israel will, which comes after the terrorist group has repeatedly targeted shipping vessels with ties to Israel.

    Numerous U.S. defense officials told POLITICO that Biden's approach to dealing with the situation was problematic because by trying to avoid escalation, the opposite is happening.

    "Near to immediate term, where are the strikes on [Houthi] targets?" said Marc Polymeropoulos, former CIA official, on social media. "Need to see this ASAP."

    Retired Vice Adm. John Miller, the former commander of U.S. 5th Fleet, told POLITICO that the U.S. was "not taking this seriously" because these attacks "have gone largely unanswered."

    "We're not deterring anybody right now," Miller said.

26 days after the October 7th Terror attacks on Israel, where over 1400 Jewish men, women and children were gruesomely murdered, and hundreds more made hostage: Should the Biden /Harris administration finally state that the administration's primary Middle East negotiating partner, Iran, is behind the funding and strategy of the aggressors, the Hamas Terrorists, or continue to take the more moderate position of "Don't," which is clearly not working?
  Yes, name Iran as the funding /strategy culprit, and begin to enforce the President Trump era sanctions to END Iran's ability to prosecute this war against Israel and the United States.
  No, Iran is a valuable partner in the motives of the Biden / Harris administration, and must not be named as the culprit and our enemy.
  I have larger concerns just to survive in this economy.

In the minds of many, since January 20, 2021, the World has become far less safe in every theater of conflict, beginning with the attack of Israel by Iran /Hamas, so the question becomes: What caused this Worldwide calamity of extreme geopolitical dysfunction, and what will correct it?
  Joe Biden is the cause of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when a Republican is elected president.
  This delayed Worldwide dysfunction and constant conflict is all Donald Trump's fault, as it is with everything that occurs going forward, and long before the man ever became the 45th president..
  Joe Biden is the "root cause" of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when former President Donald John Trump is elected president.
  In the imitable words of Alfred E. Newman: "What, me worry?"
