This is quite a miraculous failure of US intelligence. Really need to seek the origin of these rogue projectiles.

I suspect they are mobile. Good thing ECMs work though.

How long will this play out as the distraction for Hillary and Obama's worthlessness?

Maybe they are doing this to test their anti-missile shield in real combat condition. And if it fails, so be it, they'll have a casus belli to start another war, screw the people who die.

We are there as support in response of the destruction of an ally country's ship, we are respecting our regional allies by being there to help, we are putting our ships and men in the line of fire, with our ships being attacked of course we would retaliate (Obama more than likely authorized the retaliation) we are defending the integrity of our country by not letting anyone push us around, would you rather us not retaliate? It would be an embarrassment to our armed forces and our country if we didn't, so why say the word "worthless"?

What I do not understand is that if the rebels are the ones shooting at our destroyer, why would they release two Americans?

Violence doesn't have to make sense. That's why illogical actions like this can continue to happen.

So what would Reagan do if he was POTUS? I think he would have unleashed hell after the 1st attack to take away the capability of launching . Obama waited and waited.. then fires 3 at them with little effect.
