    Oh, baloney.

    It is far, far too soon to make such a prognostication.

    But, I would expect no less from the Washington Post.

    I have to admit that the Yemeni army/ Houthis, Revolutionary Committee, are doing better than i thought they would have done despite no air force, lack of support, and being up against a large force comprising of various countries which are supplying air strikes and operating modern equipment.

    There's heavy counter attack in Taiz that failed yesterday. The Saudi mercenaries lost about 40 people in a Yemeni Army ambush, and they say they got "white people" killed. Possibly Colombians

    More METIS and/or FAGOT/KONKURS successes:






    First one is a Metis, two others look like Tosan.

    Until and unless I see any report of this, it is absolute unadulterated Bravo Sierra.

    This would be HUGE news...and there is not a single report of it in any credible news organization.

    It is easy to find pictures of sinking warships. many countries conduct SINKEX exercises where they sink old vessels in order to exercise their modern weaponry.

    And that is exactly what this so-called journalist did.

    The sinking above is a well known 2012 SINKEX during RIMPAC involing the old USNS Kilauea supply ship by the Australian sub Farncomb. See:

    This stuff is easy to find.

    Quite frankly, this outrageous example of lying-journalism colors the whole article and anything that guy does in the future. Delft, you should really check this stuff our much more thoroughly before you post it here on SD.

    You know, the Houthis say they do this every so often and claim huge casualties.

    Defense News (who apparently cannot even do enough editing to correct the spelling in their title) and a couple of others pick it up (usually Iranian Sympathetic outlets) and report it as fact.

    Then...nothing.

    I have not seen one of these claims to date backed up by any large, credible news organization, that list those killed, or that are ultimately reported by the forces who supposedly lost people, or are verified in the least.

    I will wait for that type of reporting on this one too.
