Here's Why The US Government's Military Intervention in the Suez is a Risky...

•, by Chris MacIntosh

The Suez Canal, a crucial waterway for global trade, has become the stage for a risky geopolitical move as the US and Britain intervene militarily in Yemen. Goat herders in sandals need to know their place, after all. Afghanistan is already a distant memory. A memory no neocon wishes to acknowledge. Humiliation only comes with acknowledgement. Failure to acknowledge, therefore, is simply preferable.

Already, the outcome is far from triumphant, as a US ship is sunk in the process. Only days in and the glaring fragility of the globalists' military interventions are increasingly difficult to ignore. International relations will automatically take on a different timbre.

The Red Sea

When I first began writing this piece on the goings on in the Red Sea I found myself waking to find more incredible things taking place. Cascading from one crisis to yet another.

You will by now know that the Houthis in Yemen began threatening and then bombing any container ships supplying Israel. Their position being that they'll stop when the genocide in Gaza ends. Notably Chinese and Russian ships have free passage. The US, under Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin, then attempted to form a "coalition" serving Israel called 'Guardians of Prosperity' (do these guys watch too many Hollywood movies or what?) but was met with limited success. Despite visits to 39 countries, the initiative includes Britain, France, Canada, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, the Seychelles and Bahrain — none of which you'll notice have coastlines on the Red Sea.

In contrast, all the Red Sea littoral states, notably Eritrea, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Sudan, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Egypt, have all refused to be part of this alliance. Ouch!

This significantly undermines the American strategy of protecting Israel's economic interests, putting Washington in an embarrassing (and rather compromising) position.
