War is raging in Ukraine, a result of Russia's invasion. And in the Middle East, where Hamas terrorists butchered some 1,400 Israeli civilians before scurrying back to Gaza to hide mostly behind children.
And in how many other smaller venues.
And while the U.S. might not have made a declaration of war, it might already be caught up, as new reports confirm just over the weekend, a U.S. warship as well as multiple commercial U.S. ships came under attack in the Red Sea.
According to a report from One America News, the Pentagon is reporting a major escalation of "attacks."
The Defense Department confirmed that not only was the USS Carney targeted, so were a number of "commercial vessels."
OANN revealed, "Yemen’s Houthi Rebels, which is a Shia Islamist political and military organization, announced attacks on two ships that they claimed were linked to Israel, but did not recognize targeting a U.S. Navy vessel.
"The strike might have been a significant escalation in a sequence of maritime assaults in the Middle East connected to the conflict between Israel and Hamas."
The Pentagon did offer confirmation it was "aware" of reports of attacks on the USS Carney and nearby commercial vessels.
It is Houthi rebels, backed by Iran, who have been launching drones attacks, and attacks with cruise missiles, at the American properties.
As Israel has responded to Hamas' terror with its own military action aimed at destroying the terror network, Houthi rebels routinely have been attacking ships with missiles and drones.
It was a spokesman for the Houthis, Brig. Gen. Yahya Saree, who confirmed attacks are under way, but he did not acknowledge knowing American vessels were targeted.
The report noted that U.S. forces in the region have been targeted at least 75 times in the last month. On Sunday, the Department of Defense confirmed one American warship and multiple commercial ships were under attack.
