The Houthis have the world’s attention — and they won’t give it up

Frome the lined article:

Quote
While undoubtedly an effective fighting force, the Houthis have been markedly less effective at governance. They were struggling to provide basic services to the civilian population in the areas they control and were failing to contain infighting from opposition groups. Never exactly liberal pluralists, their rule was becoming increasingly repressive, including targeted assassinations, an extensive surveillance state, and Taliban-like restrictions on women’s rights.

The war in Gaza, therefore, couldn’t have come at a better time.

“War is good for them,” Johnsen said. “The Palestinian cause ... is incredibly popular all over Yemen. Just by doing what they’re doing, the Houthis can take advantage of a rally-round-the-flag effect and expand their pool of potential recruits within Yemen.” According to one report from the Washington Institute on Near East Policy, the Houthis have attracted 16,000 recruits to their ranks since the war in Gaza began.

The Houthis attacked an American ship but also an Italian warship (which disrupted their drone).

This is an incredible situation to understand, where all the superpowers in the world are kept at ransom by a bunch of warriors organized in a medieval society. Europe, America, China, all are being heavily damaged presently by these warmongering people.

I often wonder about this country I was born to; why do we even get involved with such barbarism that appears to be remnants of the Kali Yuga?  I believe much of it revolves around the opportunism of our culture; the possession of the huge oil interests in keeping the wheels spinning 😵‍💫 here in the states. Somehow I was born to the military industrial complex, huge corporatized interests and the wealth of a few at the expense of the many. That is the only thing I can make of it at this time Lucca. You are welcome to your opinions. Personally I wish we just would leave that part of the world to their own karma and let them fight it out. I just think there is a limit to how much and where we should be involved and that Christian dogmatism here at home has led to this constant concern with that part of the world.

Steve, I agree that maybe it would be better to leave those medieval populations to their medieval business, but in this instance they are jeopardizing willingly international transportation through the Strait of Hormuz, leading to the Strait of Suez. Cargo ships now will mostly choose the Cape of Good Hope route. This means that we, in Europe, are going to pay more for some goods, much more for oil products, in a place where the cost of life is already very high.

So, it would be in the direct interest of the Western world and its citizens, me included, to fight and conquer the Houthis, who have to all effects declared war to America and Europe. They are sinking ships there, with drones and missiles.

Afterwards, we should not do like America which conquered Afghanistan, to relinquish it afterward to the same Talibans, after having spent useless trillions.

We should conquer Yemen and govern it directly, annexing it to America or Europe for example.

America should have done it with Afghanistan and Irak, making them the 51st and 52nd states respectively, since it was a legitimate victory.

Lucca we have enough problems here in the United States attempting to govern people that want to topple the government and prop up an unelected dictator as well as split off and start their own country in the south. Can you imagine attempting to govern people in Afghanistan and Iraq? It is due to colonialism that we depend on any commerace at all in that part of the world. No wonder people hate us there! Nice to share views though: Thanks

Steve, your considerations are perfectly reasonable but, why engage in two hugely costly wars, occupy two states for many years, and then relinquish them back to ISIS and to the Talebans, making situation for the people worse than before? That makes no sense. Something went terribly wrong.

The problem seems to me of getting involved in the first place. I think we should have learned from Viet Nam that these people have very different barbaric values. This is the latest….

We attempt to get involved with others that we have no understanding about. But these are the consequences of exploiting other cultures for resources and cheap labor for inexpensive products. That’s my take on it. That’s the price for greed, gluttony and exorbitant life styles of ‘civilized’ societies. When we live more simpler ourselves I believe we will have a lot less headaches from other cultures. I’m attempting to live more simply. I don’t need so much ‘stuff’ and endless comforts and excitements to make life meaningful. It starts with us and being the best example we can.

Steve, it's probably as you say, lack of understanding of alien cultures. A winning strategy requires an understanding of the culture you are going to fight. The USA won the Aghan and the Iraki wars but apparently was never able to understand the underlying cultures. This resulted eventually in a defeat.

In Vietnam, the strategy was all wrong from the beginning, the lack of understanding of local culture was incredible. Even though the reasons to engage in war were arguably sound (the domino effect of communist countries) the way the war was fought was so wrong.
