What a bunch of deep state MSM/MIC BS.

The Houthis attacked with the drones and the writers know this. One of the pics of the so-called sabotage attack shows no fire or explosive residue and looks more like they backed into a pier or something.

And of course the always present “A U.S. government source”

And the conspiracy theories just keep coming.

How do you know this? Seems like you're trying to spin another conspiracy theory.

You clearly don't understand that not all projectiles leave explosive residue or create fires. Conspiracy theories are easier because they don't require facts, just the suspension of logic.

The makings of a Republican Presidency:

Tax cuts for richest .001%: Check

Send country into a recession: In Progress

Get involved in pointless, unnecessary war to boost dwindling approvals: Coming soon

We have a really dumb but powerful president without a basic grasp for history, and at the same time Bolton is whispering in his ear about attacking Iran. Now there's a scary thought.

And these projectiles are.....? Basically the main purpose of all military-grade munitions / projectiles is exactly to inflict damage by impact, explosion or fire. In the case of this strange "attack" we see the result of use of some wonder weapon which prime purpose seems to be to scratch some paint off ship's hulls. Real attacks on tankers, as during the Gulf war in 1980-88, look very different.
