Bloomberg: The United States is discussing with its allies the possibility of launching a military operation against the Yemeni Houthis

The United States is discussing with its Gulf allies the possibility of launching a military operation against the Ansar Allah movement (Yemen's Houthis). This movement, which effectively controls a large part of Yemen, enjoys the support of Tehran.

Bloomberg reports about consultations between American authorities and allied states, citing National Security Adviser to the US President John Feiner.



A senior official from the White House said that the leadership of the United States is considering the possibility of launching military action against the Houthis.

Negotiations are complicated by Arab allies' uncertainty that Washington will take extreme measures, especially so close to the upcoming US presidential election. This is especially true for Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

Currently, these negotiations between the Americans and allies are at a preliminary stage. For now, the option of military intervention is a backup option, and the main one is the search for diplomatic methods to solve the problem. It has become especially aggravated due to the increasing incidence of attacks by Houthi militias on United States ships.

A week earlier, the US command reported four Houthi attacks on US merchant ships using UAVs and missiles.

Currently, Washington is working to create a maritime coalition to ensure the safety of navigation in the Red Sea, since this problem is extremely pressing for the United States.

        There is oil there.
        Iraq and Syria will not be enough for Americans to steal.
        So they will 100% come there.

        Why should they remain neutral? It is very important for them to drive Iranian proxies out of their land borders and protect shipping in an area that is extremely important to them.

          The Yankees have sucked a lot of money out of the Saudis over the years, and it's all gone through the roof - isn't it time to earn what they got? Oh, yes - the hegemon does not fight where he can get killed...

          In fact of the matter. Anyone who wants to solve their problems with the Houthis should negotiate with Tehran, not with the United States. So it’s more likely that the Saudis will come to an agreement directly (through China or Russia) faster than the United States will help anyone with this problem. We know that if the Americans begin to solve a problem, then a new armed conflict immediately arises (or the old one is gaining momentum again), involving everyone who can be drawn in.

      The leadership of the United States is considering the possibility of launching military action against the Houthis.
      And of course, preferably through someone else’s hands, which is why they whisper with their “allies.” And the “allies” are right to doubt it, understanding that the Americans will drag them into hostilities, and then, as usual, abandon them, telling them to sort it out themselves. Only the Houthis don’t care about threats from the United States; they have their own plans.

      Dear, I really don’t know who the author of the article/note is - pay attention to the words I highlighted.
      I would like to ask you, as a journalist and an expert on the Russian language - is discussing and consulting the same thing?

      It might be more correct to conclude that the consultation is interrogative in nature - what should the Anglo-Saxons expect with such a zealous approach??!

      Whatever one may say, this is still the Muslim world and territory.

        I love such noble “helpers” with jingoism.
        Let me tell you who the Yemenis are - the wedding of a 12-year-old girl and a 50-year-old man is the norm in Yemen. Fucking donkeys is a national tradition. Literally. In the literal sense of this concept.
        Public executions are the norm. Executions in the spirit - throwing stones, cutting off hands, quartering.
        Half of the country, even more precisely 50-80%, use stingray - this is a drug that you put in your cheek and you walk around like that all day long and are not sensitive to their heat and pain.
        There is no medicine there; everything is treated either with tincture or herbs based on stingray. If it doesn’t help, then it’s the will of Allah. The mortality rate is high due to diseases, but the birth rate is also like that of rabbits. Families of 10-15 children, give birth from the age of 13 to 40. Polygamy among the rich.
        Education there is near zero, everything is decided by local theologians who live not according to the laws of the Koran, but according to the law of those theologians who interpret it this way and that (this is called Shiites, not Sunnis, like the Chechens or Tatars of Russia, for example), i.e. if a respected theologian, having read the Koran and read something there, distorts it in the right tone, this entire illiterate crowd will believe him, because he is a respected preacher. They themselves do not know the Koran, they indulge in skating, they have no time.
        If you send them textbooks, they will burn them on the next cold night. Temperatures there range from +30 during the day to -15-20 at night. This is the climate. Desert. Sand.
        If you send European women there - nuns, teachers, volunteers - the fate of slaves (and sexual ones too) awaits them, and then you will ransom your fools for a lot of money.
        Every second person there has a machine gun, a machine gun there is like a sword in the Middle Ages, if you don’t have one, then you are from the slave caste. You can move around the country only with security, after first bribing local mini-princes so that “unknown” gangs do not attack your caravan and rob you.
        and in all this early Middle Ages - will we help them? Half of the countries are tired of doing any business with them at all for all the above reasons.
        If it weren’t for the oil reserves that need to be extracted somehow, having previously closed our eyes to everything written and made deals with tribal leaders (and there are many of them!), no one would have anything to do with them at all and they would be shot like dogs, like Somali pirates .

            and it never occurred to you that this is not the Middle East.
            Has it ever occurred to you that prosperous and shining Libya (under M. Gaddafi) is located right under Renaissance Italy and there they still ride camels and cavalry instead of cars (after the overthrow of M. Gaddafi)?
            The country is divided into conditional 3 parts - European temporary occupation, adherents of one of Gaddafi’s generals (Haftar) and... a bunch of wild tribes on camels who live in an openly slave-trading system with raids and prisoners. There are a lot of oil fields on their lands. But there was once a single country! With a more or less European way of life and medicine. She was the standard of Africa and an example to everyone, including Arab countries. But where did the nomadic tribes come from then? Now? answer - So they have always been there.
            It seems like this is enlightenment, Renaissance, Renaissance, Colonialism - just 10 cm on the globe from a well-fed and enlightened Europe.. but how is that possible? think, sit down.
            There, to catch up, look for information about the way of life of the Mameluke Sultanate when Napoleon came there in 1806. And like the modern Mameluke cavalry, having lost almost half of their cavalry army, the French lost 20 or 30 French legionnaires. The battle was right opposite the Sphinx and Cheops (not figuratively, literally!) - as a result, the remnants of the Mameluke shock cavalry, the nobility, escaped and gave all of Egypt to the French to be torn to pieces and resubordinated. It doesn’t even come to mind, does it? And that's how it was. Before Napoleon, Europeans did not even enter this Mameluke Sultanate, because the slave trade was terrible and the wild Arabs lived there. Drawings (not pictures!) of Egyptian pyramids began to appear just after Napoleon. Before this, we heard about them, of course, that there are such things - but there are no paintings with detailed images of the pyramids before 1830+.
            Has this ever occurred to you? It came now and I gasped, right?
            On your own, a school assignment for you, open Yandex and ask a question there - paintings of Egyptian pyramids before 1830. Study the material. Don’t be distracted by all sorts of alien-Atlantean articles, find a real list of paintings and look for them - you’ll be surprised what little scribble is there instead of pyramids.
            I’ll ask a question for you - Why is that so? After all, Renaissance painting has been around for 150+ years (with detailed human bodies and detailed landscapes appearing in 1600+)? Answer - Because Europeans didn’t even venture into these “wild” lands.
            Someone eats a hamburger and presses buttons on their iPhone, and someone without a hamburger also posts on their iPhone how his friend likes the donkey down the tail.
            Culture and cultural development are not the same everywhere.
            PS: self-development for you. Extracurricular reading assignment - read to increase IQ - the book by M. Gaddafi - The Green Book. There are only 30-40 pages. There is a translation. For half an hour or an hour. You will understand who he was, what thoughts this man had, what he wanted, what he called for, who he accused and of what, and you will immediately receive answers - why Libya was bombed.

      Attacks on the Abqaiq and Khurais oil refineries in 2019 in the UAE. Then the Arabs took a big hit. And now, when almost everyone has a UAV in their backpack, they will take away the entire infrastructure for them. With half of their exports coming from oil and gas, this will end badly for the Arabs.

      A week earlier US command reported four Houthi attacks on US merchant ships using UAVs and missiles.

      But this is already “interesting”. Could the author please clarify when and which American merchant ships were attacked by the Houthis?

      Not a week, but five days ago there was a message:

      The US announced four Houthi attacks on three commercial ships in the Red Sea

      The United States intends to review all “response measures in coordination with international allies and partners.”

      NEW YORK, December 4. /TASS/. The United States has every reason to believe that all four attacks on three commercial ships in the Red Sea were carried out by Yemen's Houthi rebels from the Ansar Allah movement with the support of Iran. This was reported by the US Central Command (CENTCOM).

      Today there were four attacks on three separate commercial vessels in international waters in the southern Red Sea. These three vessels are associated with 14 countries.

      And not a word about the ownership of at least one vessel by the United States itself. angry
