Kassioun Editorial 1157: The Real Goals of the Aggression against Yemen

The Anglo-Saxon aggression against Yemen calls for serious thinking about the real reasons behind it, the expected repercussions therefrom, and perhaps most important of all, its position within the general context of the American plan, with regard to our region and with regard to the entire global conflict.

As Kassioun editorials and the Kassioun Research Unit articles previously stated, US talk about protecting navigation in the Red Sea is nothing more than a brazen lie. This is not only because the Houthis did not threaten maritime navigation at all, but rather they exclusively threatened navigation related to the Zionist entity, which constitutes a maximum of less than 0.01% (1 in 10,000) of the maritime trade that passes through the Suez Canal, but also because the direct result of US behavior in the Red Sea is precisely the obstruction of navigation within it, leading to its complete closure if the escalation continues. This result is clear and has a huge impact to the extent that dealing with is as “collateral damage” is short-sighted. Quite contrarily, it should be dealt with as a major goal of US activity.

Therefore, this aggression is part of the comprehensive chaos plan that Kassioun has previously touched on in its editorials over the last three months.

In the same context, we can enumerate several complex goals that the Americans seek to achieve from their recent aggression, especially by answering the question “Who benefits?”, which carries an equivalent formulation, “Who is harmed?”:

First: The maritime navigation route passing through the Red Sea is an essential link in all trade heading from East Asia, particularly from China, towards Europe. Obstructing or completely stopping it, and raising transportation costs therethrough, will necessarily harm both the countries of East Asia, especially China, as well as Europe. This in turn then result in more inflation, higher prices, and more dependence on the US, not only in energy (as happened after Ukraine and the Nord Stream bombing), but even in several other goods, the competitiveness of which will improve for the US.

Second: All countries and peoples of the world will be harmed by price increases and inflation resulting from the militarization of one of the most important global trade routes, and rising prices, as has become known, is one of the most important tools of hybrid wars, and in our case, one of the most important tools of comprehensive chaos.

Third: An attempt to strike the Saudi-Iranian settlement through Yemen, and then attempting to bring back Saudi Arabia completely under the US’ shadow. Perhaps more important than that is raising the temperature and tension in preparation for detonating Saudi Arabia from within.

Fourth: If all the previous goals are medium-term ones, then the closest and clearest is Egypt, which is in the process of being encircled and pressures on it increased to the maximum. This is from various directions: Sudan, in which Egypt’s direct enemies have advanced greatly with the help of the most impudent normalizers with “Israel”, i.e., the UAE; al-Nahda; Somaliland file and it signing an agreement with Ethiopia to establish a military base for the latter overlooking Bab al-Mandab; the continuation of Zionist and US pressures from the north regarding the displacement file; and the reduction of Suez Canal revenues and the general inflation that will result from the disruption of navigation in the Red Sea, as part of tremendous economic pressure being applied to Egypt internally in preparation for detonating it. This is what is apparent of the scene so far, and what is hidden could be greater.

If this is the case with the US and its plans, then these plans in particular are pushing the countries and regimes of the region, all of which are under threat, more and more towards the following:

First: Increasing the level of inter-cooperation and reducing the state of regional conflict and discord, in the interest of joint confrontation of pressures. Implicitly, Saudi-Iranian relations, for example, should be expected to improve, quite the opposite of what the US hopes.

Second: Cooperation will be strengthened between these countries and the rising powers, led by China and Russia, in all fields.

Third: These countries, under the pressure of existential threat, will turn towards socioeconomic policies that are different than before, and implicitly they will be forced to change their international orientation and their adopted economic ideals, away from Western liberalism.

Fourth: The process of the emergence of the new international order will accelerate, including through the gateway to high-speed land trade routes, as an urgent alternative to evade US maritime bullying.

Implicitly, the process of changing the existing regional system, including the situation in Syria through a political solution in accordance with UNSC Resolution 2254, will also undergo an acceleration process, as the existential threat that the Americans and their system pose to all the peoples and countries of the world increases.
