Countries are already pulling out, and Iranian/Houthi aggression hasn't paused.
What developments do you predict in these waters going forward?
The Suez canal is pretty important to global trade, and you can definitely expect Gulf nations to interfere if it gets blocked significantly since they're already foaming to crack down on the Houthis. Israel is of course going to demand that the USA do more to protect its ships while offering nothing in return. This could be a major shitstorm. This could potentially turn into another Gulf War.

I think that globohomo will just have to deal with not using the suez canal. atleast that is the smart thing. They might decide to escalate by sinking any ship that goes through to attempt to force the Russians/Iranians/Chinese to back off of supporting the Houthis.
An invasion of Yemen is just a non-starter, Biden's base won't stand for it, the right has no stomach for it either for that matter. Why are we protecting ships that are not ours, to facilitate shipping our livelyhoods overseas?

That's not realistic. They're not going to sail around the horn if Africa because Houthis blocked access to the Red Sea. They're more likely to just destroy Yemen. Even if globohomo doesn't intervene, the Arab Gulf states will.>Russians/Iranians/Chinese
I know Iran supports the Houthis, but I've never heard of Russia or China backing them. China sends a lot of goods to Europe through the Suez canal.>Why are we protecting ships that are not ours, to facilitate shipping our livelyhoods overseas?
1. Our country is led by servatile golems who wage wars for Israel
2. That trade route is pretty important to the global economy (remember the time the Evergrand blocked the Suez?)
>>370067>That's not realistic.
They pretty much tried destroying Yemen with the saudis basically having free reign to do whatever they could short of NBC warfare, and it didn't work. Full scale invasion which is not happening, or nuclear/biological/chemical attacks are basically it for stopping the Houthis. >but I've never heard of Russia or China backing them
Russia just sent ships through the canal, pretty much tacit support, and the electronics in all the drones is pretty much coming from China. We also heard about a Chinese vessel refusing to aid an israeli one. I am making assumptions about how the battle lines are drawn however, my view is that this is a further proxy expansion of the Ukraine-Russia conflict.
Given that this is a proxy war, they'll find someone to stop shipping going through the canal and accomplish what they tried by pulling back the insurance coverage of all ships: "This is Your Problem. Solve it.">That trade route is pretty important to the global economy
Yep, and the best way to insulate the economy from this is to A)Not import so much stuff but instead make it ourselves, and B)Use larger ships that are economical for going the long route instead of smaller ships.
The US Navy has no ships available, I mean, the Litoral Class ships built specially for shore operations are a joke not able to survive real combat, this has been admitted by the same military. Then the image of the mighty navy is falling apart, like the emperator is naked tale.
I don't think it's a lack of naval power (let's be real, the Houthis aren't exactly stellar naval commanders), but confusion of what to do paired with unwillingness to get involved. I think they're just hoping the other Gulf nations will move in, because Arab countries already despise the Houthis, and because they too rely on that sea for trade.
>>370096>unwillingness to get involved
Well, it is nor smart getting involved in a 100% jew dispute.
For the Arabs is political suicide to support the kikes and at the same time if the blockade tightens... the oil price will increase and more profit will go to their pockets.
>>370099>it is nor smart getting involved in a 100% jew dispute
That's not what's holding the navy back right now. Serving Jews is normal.
Also, it's not quite 100% Jews, it's also a proxy wars between the Arab countries and Iran.>For the Arabs is political suicide to support the kikes
Their people won't see attacking the Houthis as supporting kikes. They'll just see it as attacking Shia apostates.
The only reason the Abraham Accords worked is because the Arabs saw it as the "Fuck Iran Club".>the oil price will increase and more profit will go to their pockets.
Perhaps that works for some of them, but the price of oil is irrelevant if they can't sell it. Plus the Saudis are much more concerned with the Yemen civil war than they are about money. Egypt gets a lot of revenue from the Suez as well.

Not anymore. Saudi Arabia and Iran are in synchrony now. Like the tandem China-Russia-Iran is getting momentum and the rats are jumping ships.
>>370101>Saudi Arabia and Iran are in synchrony now.
That's bullshit. One visitation is not "synchronicity".
