      trade disruption in the red sea helps norway though, so why would they be interested in the mission being a success? norways main exports are oil and gas, the red sea troubles drive oil and gas prices up plus oil and gas supply from their main competitors in the middle east becomes less available which adds another bonus.

        wrong.
        Russia's dark tanker fleet can't sail through the Red Sea now. Russia is forced to sell their oil to Europe instead.
        Europe set a price limit for Russian oil and will underpay Russia.

        Crewing. RAN has burnt out their sailors with constant high tempo deployments. Retention is shit because when a ship comes home for maintenance/refit they'll have civilian contractors do it and put the sailors on the next ship and send them right back out. There's no chance to keep up with family or live even small part of a normal life like they used to be able when a ship was alongside.

      The EU and UK aren't insignificant as trade partners, each are separately in the top 5 and if you put them together they are second only to China. Also, Australia imports about 90% of its oil needs. Most of this comes from Singapore which is itself 80% dependent on Middle Eastern oil

      There’s isn’t a dependence but there is a knock-on effect where logistical bottlenecks are forming.
      Closing both the Suez Canal, while the Panama Canal is in a drought, with the NSR and NWP closed for Winter ice means ships are being forced into the Southern Hemisphere to travel, which is driving shipping costs up considerably.

    Stop giving the enemy food aid. Also do 100% blockade of sea and air, then this shit ends in 30 days. After a few million of them starve to death, then our deterrence will have credibility again. No one will really miss a few million Houthis

      Yes. 'Foreign aid' only ever makes rhings worse over there and helps the people who hate us.

    Australia and Singapore get a pass. Total chink death. American wealth and vitality are beyond measure, we can handle some unruly peasants if it means safeguarding our allies' readiness.

      The only think you need to bomb is ports, railways, bridges, power plants, water treatment plants, hospitals, and """humanitarian""" ships.

      The problem fixes itself in a matter of months.

        It's almost like they're hitting anything they can with the resources at their disposal like a wild, rabid animal.

    Well, considering its name, that cargo ship isn't Russian owned. Though if it's transporting Russian shit, it 100% wasn't insured, as all insurance companies are western owned, and thus under sanctions if they do so.
    So either way, it's bad for Russia, since even third parties trying to transport their shit will back away now, risks of losing everything just went through the roof.

    How come Houthis-ni still have the means to strike ships after US' bombings?

      >GEN. RYDER: Yeah, I mean, that's really a question for the Houthis to answer. Clearly, our goal here is to disrupt and degrade their ability to conduct those kinds of strikes and to put that kind of pressure, especially when there's an imminent threat, I think does have an effect. They do maintain some capability.

      Its like the only thing you guys actually have. You have a shitton of coastline and the US doesn't want to be patrolling and securing it all for you. Its one reason I tend to give the Leafs a lil bit of a pass when it comes to military geopolitics since you have such a small population and you basically "play D" to free up others to go do shit. Just a lil bit of a pass though, mind you; sometimes y'all are still dropping the ball.
