“These ships were not U.S. commercial ships. They were from a variety of nations. This is an issue for the entire world, for every country that relies upon maritime commerce to sustain their economy,” said National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan.

“Attacks on commercial shipping in international waters are totally unacceptable and have to stop, and what we are doing now is engaging in intensive consultations with partners and allies to determine the appropriate next steps,“ he continued.

“We cannot assess at this time whether the Carney was a target, but the Carney took prudent action in taking down those three UAVs,” confirmed Sullivan.

“We are talking about the Houthis here,” clarified Sullivan.

“They’re the ones with their finger on the trigger. But that gun — the weapons here are being supplied by Iran. And Iran, we believe, is the ultimate party responsible for this,” said Biden Biden’s security advisor.

“We are in talks with other countries,” Sullivan added. “Those talks are ongoing as we speak. I don’t have anything formal to announce.”

“Deterrence is strategic. It’s not something that you flip a switch. It’s not a visceral response to something that the enemy does,” said retired Army Major and military analyst Mike Lyons.

Adding, “The problem right now is, the country really hasn’t communicated that deterrence. There’s no red line, where everybody’s waiting for something to kind of happen.”

The administration is considering various options, including an international maritime force to protect commercial shipping.

The situation has sparked debate about communication of deterrence and the handling of military tactics.

Additionally, there’s a discussion about aid for Ukraine being used as a bargaining chip in relation to border security.

Congress is urged to support the fight for freedom in Ukraine, and there are disagreements over immigration policies.
