Houthis Sink Second Ship in Red Sea

A cargo ship sank in the Red Sea on Wednesday after being attacked by the Houthis, marking the second ship that has sunk since the terrorists started targeting commercial shipping in the vital waters.

The Houthis released footage showing their attack on the Liberian-flagged, Greek-owned Tutor. They used two drone boats to hit the vessel from its side and the stern.

One sailor on board is believed to have died as a result of the attack.

Drone boats: Houthi has made 10 strikes so far this June, compared to five in May, according to Munro Anderson, head of Vessel Protect. But this attack marked the first time unmanned drone boats were successfully used, representing “a new challenge for commercial shipping within an already complex environment,” he said.

U.S. weakness: The United States has led a monthslong campaign against the Iran-backed Houthi terrorists. This has been its “most-intense maritime fighting since World War ii,” according to the Associated Press.

The U.S. Navy is the most powerful in the world and should be able to easily shut down a comparatively small terrorist group. Yet it is failing because the once great nation lacks the will to use its power.
