U.S.S Cole Patrolling Of Yemen Coast - Mattis Tough On N. Korea
Things are continuing to heat up in the Middle East as the US Military has sent the USS Cole to patrol off the coast of Yemen following a Houthi attack on a Saudi Arabian vessel earlier in the week. This has been coupled with the Trump administration adding fresh sanctions to the Iranian regime. With tensions rising between the US and Iran, the Ayatollah has threatened to attack US interests in the region.
Iranian Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh said the following in response to the sanctions:
“If the enemy does not walk the line, our missiles come down on them.” He continued to say “We are working day and night to protect Iran’s security. If we see smallest misstep from the enemies, our roaring missiles will fall on their heads.” The war of words and posturing have continued with President Trump threatening Iran on Twitter [go to link above to read full article].

General Mattis: “As far as Iran goes, this is the single biggest state sponsor of terrorism in the world,” Mattis said at a press conference in Tokyo, but he added that the US had no plans to increase troop numbers in the Middle East in response. “I think it is wise to make certain that Iran recognizes that what it is doing is getting the attention of a lot of people,” Mattis said.
