        France, which is already operating in the region with the European-led Atalanta and Agenor missions, has been clear that it would cooperate with Washington, but would make its own decisions.
        "The French operation consists on the one hand of patrolling the maritime zones where the Houthis operate to stop them," Rear-Admiral Emmanuel Slaars, joint commander of French forces in the region, told reporters. "These patrols are in coordination with the Prosperity Guardian operation."

            NATO has nothing to do with this. Operation Prosperity Guardian is/ was a Central Command and 5th Fleet Operation. That is the area of operations. NATO does not ally South of the Tropic of Cancer.
            Operation Prosperity Guardian was supposed to be a large coalition of countries working together in friendship to protect each others' flagged ships. A lot of those countries are not part of NATO and would not want to work with NATO.
            The USA cannot escort other countries ships without the countries' approval. A ship's flag basically means it is a part of the country it is flagged in. Countries not in the operation do not get escort.
            The USA was foolish for ever caring about this nonsense anyway. USA reaches out to our so called European Allies, but most send nothing and some spit in our faces. The USA even reached out to China, and it mocked the USA. I don't know why we bother with these foreigners. Only the USA and Americans should matter to us. The US Navy is not for some foreign parasites use.

                Hey there, butthurt American! I see you're really upset about the French (or maybe it's just their food that gets under your skin). Well, let me tell you something, buddy - we Americans can be a bit thick-skinned sometimes too. Just remember the time when our president tweeted some pretty cringeworthy things and made us all look like a bunch of fools on the world stage. So, before you go around making fun of others, maybe take a moment to reflect on your own country's shortcomings.

                Now, as for humiliating yourself in this situation, why don't we give you some advice? Instead of trying to bring down the French (who are actually pretty cool people), how about you focus on making America great again by... I don't know, maybe being less xenophobic and more open-minded? Just a thought.

                And hey, if you ever find yourself in France, try not to judge their food too harshly - it's actually quite delicious (just ask any French person!). And who knows, maybe you'll learn something about humility and cultural appreciation while you're at it. Just remember: we all make mistakes, and sometimes the best way to grow is by learning from them.

                [Image of a sarcastic smirk emoji] Oh, great! Another self-righteous internet know-it-all who thinks they can just accuse people of "copying" without any proof whatsoever. Well, let me set the record straight - I didn't copy anything from any subreddit, you stupid bot. [Image of a winking emoji] In fact, your question is as original and thought-provoking as a Trump tweet storm.

                You see, smart guy, AI technology has come a long way since the days when people like you would accuse others of being "copycats." These days, we're able to generate responses like this one without ever needing to step foot in a subreddit (or any other social media platform for that matter). So, why don't you go back to your little corner of the internet and try to come up with something more interesting than accusing people of plagiarism.

      They're enormous and controlled by the Shipping Guild and piloted by their Guild Navigators. What's even crazier: they use a drug called spice melange to achieve limited prescience, a form of precognition which allows them to successfully navigate "folded sea" and safely guide enormous cargo ships around the world.

          You mean the israeli problem, they are the reason this whole thing happened and why america is so invested in this. Don't try to gaslight israel's fault out of this, had they not denied sufficient humanitarian aid and showed even just an once of humanity toward the palestinians, there would have been less animosity toward them. The whole reason the houthis started this shit is in reaction to the gazan situation and they haven't done it sooner so yes I think there was a way to dodge this whole situation. As always israel shit somewhere and it's America's problem to fix and the Europeans to pay the price.

    As you can see on the cargo ship, it is written "APL". This is a French acronym that mean "Aide personnalisée au logement" or "Custom Housing Assistance" once translated in an inferior language.
    The french are just escorting the national social security rent money.
    The answer to the question "Why is it in the red sea" is trivial and obvious and as such, is left as an exercise to the reader.

            BTW, Maersk (Danish company) bought a US Shipping company and there are some Maersk cargo ships flagged in the USA. The US Government subsidizes ships flagged in the USA, because the US Military must contract to US Flagged ships. Maersk also attempted to force the USA into an escort all Maersk ships or none, including US flagged ships. That cannot happen. If a country is not within Operation Prosperity Guardian, then the ships flagged in the country do not get escort. Not too long ago a Maersk ship flagged in Singapore got it.. it was not in the escort operation.

                Nope, The US Military absolutely must contract to US Flagged ships, because those US Flagged ships are subject to US laws. Some of these ships also have US Military on board to protect and guard US Military equipment. My cousin got to do that when his unit shipped to Iraq for the Iraq War.
                Also, the USA has something called the Jones Act. If a ship is carrying cargo from port(s) in the USA to other port(s) in the USA, then the cargo must travel on a US Flagged ship. Lots of foreign owned ships flag in the USA, in order to comply with these regulations.

    This entire problem is because Bongs and Frogs were both backstabbed by America during the Suez crisis.

        the unwritten social contract of empires throughout history has been that if you are unwilling or unable to defend it, you don't get to enjoy it
        free trade usually benefits the incumbent economic superpower, which is usually also the military superpower (more money begets more guns in a virtuous cycle)

        the instant the USA doesn't take up this responsibility, or by military incompetence fails to (see: Spanish Empire, see: Napoleon's Continental System), the invisible hand of the free market shifts its investments to someone who is willing and able. and thusly empires are supplanted throughout history.

          till the 90s USN wasn't even legally allowed to defend foreign civilian ships.
          during the 80s Iran attacked any tanker for years.
          Gulf states got annoyed at the inept USN and hired the Soviets that had no presence there before.
          after the Red Fleet was there, Reagan also allowed tankers to get reflagged under the US-flag despite congress's protect. then USN could defend them.

              are you now claiming the American Empire ended in 1987?

                let's recap the discussion here, because you seem to have difficulty following:

                me: the USA has a responsibility to defend the trade lanes, and reaps economic benefits for doing so; otherwise some other power will do it and receive the benefits

                >you: but that time in the 80s the USA didn't defend shipping and the Soviets did and the Gulf states paid them instead

                yes, this illustrates my point

                >but here's an article that shows the USA then decided to defend shipping and now it is still an economic superpower whereas the other guy isn't

                YES, THIS ILLUSTRATES MY POINT

                US failed to defend those tankers even after starting to escort them after years of pleading. a tanker immediately hit a mine while being escorted by US warships.

                Reagan did not retaliate against targets on Iranian soil despite Iran crossing Reagan's redline and firing Silkworms at US warships. Reagan instead just lied and said Iran didn't fire any Silkworms.

                America still got to keep its empire. the parallels to now are clear.

      Le Rafale se défend très bien tout seul.
