First of all, I should explain that while a more sophisticated WP user than I, could set up some kind of automatic posting of the Reader’s links contribution post that is supposed to come every day at a minute after midnight give or take a few minutes, I don’t know how to do that. So I create as many as I can at a give moment before the repetition of it gets to me, and set each one to auto-publish at about the right time.
Usually I do about 2 weeks worth at a time, and then I forget about it. This is why about twice a month, the daily links post is late!
My apologies to all.
Meanwhile, Iran has moved destroyers in between US positions in the Gulf and Houthi (Iranian proxy army) captured positions in Yemen as a response to the US taking out targeting radars on the Yemeni coast, itself a response to the firing of at least FOUR missiles at US ships in international waters.
This link has the most recent info I have so far, thanks to Richard and OC.
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s Navy has deployed a flotilla of warships to international waters for a mission that includes presence in the waters off the southern coasts of Yemen.
Iran’s 44th flotilla, comprising Alvand destroyer and Bushehr logistic warship, has been dispatched to the Gulf of Aden and the Bab el-Mandeb Strait to protect the country’s trade vessels against piracy in the unsafe zone.
The Iranian fleet will head for the waters near Somalia and Tanzania afterwards through the Indian Ocean.
After making a port call in Tanzania, the 44th fleet will sail along the eastern coasts of Africa if the weather holds out, and is scheduled to sail even for the western coasts of South Africa, in the South Atlantic Ocean.
