Houthis claim missile attack on USS Dwight D. Eisenhower in Red Sea; DoD says attack never happened
06/11/2024 // Ethan Huff // Views

There is conflicting information out there about what happened or did not happen in the Red Sea pertaining to the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower, also known as "Ike."

The Houthis in Yemen say they successfully conducted a missile attack on the nuclear-powered carrier while the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) says no such attack happened.

After the Houthis claimed credit for the attack, an unnamed DoD official reportedly told Politico's Lara Seligman that this is "false information," adding that "there was no hit on the Ike or any attacks in its vicinity."

The Houthis, meanwhile, say that the attack with both cruise and ballistic missiles did, in fact, happen in response to the American-British bombardment of Sanaa and Hodeidah, calling the hit "accurate and direct."

Did the Ike attack happen or not?

Both Reuters and Al Jazeera reported that the attack happened, citing Houthi military spokesman Yahya Saree who issued a televised statement about the alleged attack.

An English translation of a tweet from Saree's X account explains how the alleged attack was a response to "American-British aggression in support of the Zionist enemy, which caused 58 martyrs and wounded, to dissuade our dear people and the Armed Forces from their position of support for the oppressed Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip."

It is entirely possible that the United States government is the one lying about all this since the U.S.-led Operation Prosperity Guardian, a military operation in the Red Sea, is regarded as a monumental failure.

The Houthis continue to target Western vessels in the Red Sea using missiles and kamikaze drones while the U.S., more than likely ashamed and embarrassed by the reality of the situation, has turned to lying in order to save face.

Following another similar attack earlier in May, the Pentagon sent the USS Harry S. Truman to the region to help ensure stability in what is widely recognized as one of the world's most critical shipping lanes.

It should also be noted that a sixth U.S. MQ-9 Reaper drone was also shot down the other day over Yemen, this demonstrating the failure of the U.S. military to get a grasp on the situation.

Containerized shipping costs, meanwhile, are soaring – not necessarily due to the war, mind you. The global financial system, which is wholly corrupt and on its way out, is failing and bringing with it creeping hyperinflation that war provides a convenient cover for.

When the powers that be need to hide their financial malfeasances and artificially prop up the house of cards they have made for a little while longer, one thing they routinely do is launch new wars to keep the false economy going, i.e., to kick the can down the road a bit.

"If it comes from the DoD, your safest bet is to believe the exact opposite," is how one commenter at Zero Hedge put the current situation with the USS Eisenhower and the DoD's questionable claim that the vessel is just fine.
