TUESDAY – The Iran-backed Houthis continue to strike at ships in the Red Sea costing the U.S. at least a billion dollars so far in weapons to defeat them. Yet, ignores, and rewards, Iran while wasting valuable U.S. resources in a tit-for-tat game with Houthis.

Defense Innovation Unit seeks systems to counter Red Sea drone attacks.

Moreover, the Houthis continue to receive Iranian equipment, spare parts and trainers. (RELATED: Hezbollah Flags, Terrorist Endorsements Infiltrating Campus Protests)
