Fun with Iran: The Yemen Missile Gambit

Yemen missile gambit -

1. Someone shoots at U.S. ships
2. U.S. responds
3. Iran asserts U.S. made "decision to directly get involved in a Saudi-led war against Yemen." Iran twists self-defense into offensive act.

See here:
The presence of the Iranian fleet in the Gulf of Aden coincides with the US decision to directly get involved in a Saudi-led war against Yemen.

On Thursday, the US military launched cruise missile strikes to destroy coastal radar sites in Yemen in retaliation for an alleged missile attacks on a US Navy destroyer.
Or, as one of my kids used to tattle: "Doug hit me back."

I think the Persians were early players of chess.

    would be interesting to know if Iran knew in advance, ordered, or encouraged the missiles shots at the US ships.
