American technology is scoring big against Iran-backed threats in the Red Sea region, and itís bad news for China. †

You know the U.S. Navy destroyer USS Carney
was in the news again Sunday, shooting down drones launched from
Yemenís Houthi rebels against merchant shipping in the Red Sea. This
crew has been taking out drones and missiles supplied by Iran for weeks
now, and their tally is over two dozen destroyed so far. †

You may
not have heard about another very significant engagement. On Oct. 31,
an F-35I stealth fighter made in the USA and flown by Israel, shot down
one of Iranís cruise missiles fired by Houthis from Yemen. This was the
first-ever air-to-air kill of a cruise missile by an F-35.

More interesting stuff about the F-35 in the article.
