The Crisis In The Red Sea Threatens To Disrupt Global Supply Chains Even More...

•, By Michael

Do you remember the supply chain problems that we experienced during the darkest days of the COVID pandemic?  Well, now we are being warned that the crisis in the Red Sea could actually disrupt global supply chains to an even greater degree.  Needless to say, this comes at a really bad time because the U.S. economy has really been struggling lately.  The U.S. and the U.K. are desperate to resolve this crisis, and so they have been bombing the living daylights out of the Houthis in Yemen.  We haven't seen anything quite like this from the U.S. military since the early days of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.  On Monday, there was yet another round of air and missile strikes…

The U.S. and U.K. conducted large-scale air and missile strikes on Houthi rebel facilities across Yemen on Monday, according to a joint statement, stepping up operations against the militant group as it vows to continue attacking ships in the Red Sea.

The U.S. and U.K. militaries, with support from Australia, Bahrain, Canada and the Netherlands, hit eight Houthi targets in Yemen in response to the Houthis' continued attacks, according to a joint statement from the countries involved. The precision strikes were "intended to disrupt and degrade the capabilities that the Houthis use to threaten global trade and the lives of innocent mariners," the statement said.

Unfortunately, so far the strikes don't seem to be doing much good.

The Houthis continue to attack commercial vessels in the Red Sea, and this is greatly frustrating U.S. officials.

When asked about the air and missile strikes, Joe Biden admitted that they are not working but he says that they will continue anyway

President Joe Biden and his top aides have repeatedly said strikes on Houthi targets alone won't stop the Iran-backed militants from threatening commercial ships in the Middle East.
