"I don’t see how the US avoids the Thucydides Trap here..."

Poster Comment:

Thucydides Trap means war is inevitable as a rising power challenges the dominant Empire.

Yemen shot down a $30 million CIA Reaper drone with a cheap missile. America could not invade Yemen and defeat them.

The Hamas war was designed to force Israeli to act like the thugs they are. The Muslim governments were willing to sell out the Palestinians for Trump's Abraham Accords. But over 90% of all Muslims are angry with their governments for doing nothing to stop this Israeli Genocide.

Israel basically threatened the US by saying if we didn't do anything about the Houthi's they would. Would Israel actually nuke Yemen? Because there isn't really anything else they could do about them.

Israel does have some subs but I don't think they are capable of land attacks.

Far too easy to mine those waters and do it on a budget, heck Houthis could get China to supply them for free. Then watch crude prices soar.

Mining would be considered reckless and a danger to all shipping, and the Houthi's apparently are only targeting Israeli shipping right now. And sea mines would probably be relatively easy to destroy anyway.

One needs to find them first US side scan sonar can not and every boat is a mine sweeper, once.
