These Houthis need something else to do like burying their dead.

The Red Sea are international shipping lanes. Yemen has no right or authority to attack any ship.

The Red Sea, with its connection to the Suez Canal, is one of the world's busiest shipping lanes.

If China can do business there, the US can keep the peace there.

In international waters, any ship, civil or military can be present. The merchant ships need protection as shown by the Houthi terrorists.

Yes, Israel is there.

go back home and stop to provoke new conflict.

Would you leave your kid brother or sister if they were in a fight or would you be there to support them? Personally, I would be there.

Many believe that (and I mean that as a fact, there are people that truly believe that the Earth belongs to U.S.).

International waters. The freedom of the seas means any nation or vessel can be there - and nations like the US and Japan have billions of dollars of money in the area so use naval protection.

Be a real shame if these Houthi terrorist scum blow themselves up with some of their own artillery.

The Yemen government decision to effectively sanction shipping companies for doing business with the Israeli regime and Israeli oligarchs are aimed just as much at influencing Iran as the shipping industry.

Though Washington insists that any ME democracy/prodemocracy movement is "Iran backed", that backing is mostly limited to encouraging people to work towards greater democracy, advice on how to arm themselves to deter attacks by the American backed Axis of Antidemocracies, and limited weapon supplies to established democracies in emergencies like the wave of blitz attacks by American armed and financed extremists across Iraq and Syria.

The images of Yemen military actions against the Israeli linked ships, that are successful despite America's war ships attempts to shield them will be force multipliers for the pressure to actively intervene that images of the wanton destruction the Israeli regime is perpetrating in Gaza is causing in Iran. While the older generation remembers from personal experience the sacrifices their generation paid to win freedom and democracy for Iran, the younger generation only heard stories about the people who's gravestones populate the memorials to that struggle, but personally experienced the benefits of living in a democracy and Iran grow into not just a regional power, but a regional power with global influence and partnerships.

That's a dynamic that is playing out, in a different fashion in Japan.

There are those who think that 'the world' essentially consists of the White Bloc. But a popular image that consists of a standard world map with only the White Bloc countries and ocean blue drives home how deluded that is. Take a minute to find it and see for yourself.

Yemen or the terrorists within Yemen don't get to decide what happens in international waters.

Though Washington insists that any ME democracy/prodemocracy movement is "Iran backed", that backing is mostly limited to encouraging people to work towards greater democracy, advice on how to arm themselves to deter attacks by the American backed Axis of Antidemocracies, and limited weapon supplies to established democracies in emergencies like the wave of blitz attacks by American armed and financed extremists across Iraq and Syria.

Yeah, uh huh. "Limited". Iow Iran is a scummy terrorist backing state with no democracy at home, let along promoting it abroad.

The images of Yemen military actions against the Israeli linked ships, that are successful despite America's war ships attempts to shield them will be force multipliers for the pressure to actively intervene that images of the wanton destruction the Israeli regime is perpetrating in Gaza is causing in Iran.

Yemen is no where near Gaza, so its intervention is about as legal as US intervention.

While the older generation remembers from personal experience the sacrifices their generation paid to win freedom and democracy for Iran, the younger generation only heard stories about the people who's gravestones populate the memorials to that struggle, but personally experienced the benefits of living in a democracy and Iran grow into not just a regional power, but a regional power with global influence and partnerships.

Yeah, so free that they have mass arrests and sexual violence by the police in Iran.

That's a dynamic that is playing out, in a different fashion in Japan.

Japan and SK are also apparently part of your White Bloc making the racist term nonsensical.
