U.S. and UK Respond to Houthi Attack

The United States and United Kingdom struck 16 locations in Yemen on Thursday night. Australia, Bahrain, Canada and the Netherlands provided nonoperational support.

The strikes were in response to the Houthis’ largest attack in the Red Sea since the beginning of the Israel-Hamas war. The Iran-backed terrorist organization had attacked U.S. and UK ships with 18 drones, two cruise missiles and one ballistic missile.

The Houthis have attacked commercial Red Sea shipping lanes 25 times before, but the U.S. and UK did not retaliate until Thursday.

The U.S. and Britain warned of their response hours before the first bombs fell, which gave the Houthis ample time to evacuate major areas and move vital materials underground.

Thursday’s strike could provoke further Houthi attacks in the world’s most important trade route.

The Trumpet said: In the 1950s, Herbert W. Armstrong, editor in chief of the Plain Truth—the Trumpet’s predecessor—said the U.S. and UK had lost the will to use their power. History, along with this week’s developments, has validated his comments.

The Bible foretold the modern state of the U.S. and UK, and it says both will continue to decline militarily. This will lead to the greatest suffering this world has ever seen.
