The US is too incompetent to respond strategically to anything. You can count on them to do the most obvious thing possible, in every situation. Not a very good enemy.

“Sustained campaign” is the best ever euphemism for “war.”


The US is preparing for a “sustained” bombing campaign in Yemen after ten days of airstrikes failed to undermine the ability of Houthi fighters to target ships in the Red Sea, the Washington Post has reported, citing unnamed officials.

The administration of President Joe Biden does not expect a protracted operation such as the US campaigns in Iraq or Afghanistan, but at the same time it cannot provide a timeframe for when Houthi military capabilities will be adequately diminished, the newspaper reported on Saturday.

Washington’s strategy is to curb the ability of the Shiite militant group to target ships off the coast of Yemen, or at least create safe conditions for shipping companies to resume sending vessels through the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden, sources added.

The Houthis have launched dozens of drone and missile attacks on commercial ships in the area in recent months, declaring support for Gaza amid Israel’s military operation in the Palestinian enclave.

Meanwhile, Yemen has promised not to thwart Russian or Chinese ships, while continuing to escalate against American and other Jewish ships.

That clip of Biden saying the strikes aren’t working but they’re going to keep doing them is the best.

Houthi military capabilities

Navy Seals intercepted a boat in the Arabian Sea that was carrying Iranian made warheads to the Houthis in Yemen.

Two Seals were lost in the rough seas during the boarding operation. :-/
