Right after Iranian proxies killed three Americans and wounded several dozen more at a previously undisclosed base camp at the tip of Jordan where it meets Syria and Iraq, the Houthis are saying they’ve attacked one of our floating base ships.
The USS Lewis B. Puller and its sister ships (the Navy has three in service and is building three more) are created from an oil tanker design and provide a versatile and mobile base for multiple missions.

The two Navy SEALS declared lost at sea while conducting a search and seizure of a vessel in the Gulf of Aden likely launched from the USS Puller.

The Forever War in the Middle East is spinning out of control with a passive and groveling Biden Team pleading with China to stop their proxy of Iran from overseeing the multi-front conflict in the Middle East. World War III is in full swing.
