Another of many hot spot’s heating up that could very well go red hot without much warning.
This is a major military, commercial, trade, Red Sea, Suez Canal, Mediterranean Sea, Indian Ocean, Africa, Middle East choke point.
Debka has a story on the recent seizure of a strategic island in the Strait of Bab al Mandeb from Iran/ Houthi rebel control
|choke,choke,choke, I can’t breath, sez the world powers|
It’s a hot spot!
The US along with the French have busy and more active by the day military bases in Djibouti with Iran making a move there also.
China has very important interests in Africa that it will protect militarily and these interests reach into the Middle East.
I do not think Iran will take this loss lying down so I expect the Mad Mullah Republic to push back. Not sure how hard but it bears watching, especially since the worthless US media are asleep again, too busy with their garbage/junk news.
What crafty Chess moves will Iran/Russia/China make in respond ?
