The US has been obstructing any proposed US Security Council resolution that calls for a ceasefire in Gaza, effectively impeding international attempts to put an end to the ongoing genocide in Gaza purposely to trigger another moneymaking venture for the military industrial complex that has just started today.
However, the price of any military-related stock remains unchanged.
The military action was a response to the Shiite movement’s attempts to harm Israel by interfering with Red Sea marine trade. The Houthis responded to the three-month siege of Gaza by attacking ships they said were associated with the Jewish state.
According to US Central Command, the UK coordinated the attacks in Yemen with assistance from Australia, Canada, the Netherlands, and Bahrain. The statement stated that Washington sought to “restore stability in the Red Sea and de-escalate tensions.”
The Houthis have been attacking ships that are headed for Israel while they are traversing the Red Sea since November. The cost of maritime exports has increased, which has a knock-on effect on the prices of supplies and goods globally. The Houthi strikes have forced over 14 shipping lines to reroute to the Cape of Good Hope and cease accessing the Red Sea.
Israel asserts, on the other hand, that the campaign’s objective in Gaza is to eliminate the Hamas threat, having launched it in retribution for a fatal invasion by the Palestinian militant group in early October. However, the world is seeing a totally different scenario on the ground as the Gazan population is systematically driven out of the enclave itself and into the Sinai desert by bombing all critical civilian infrastructures including hospitals and evacuation centers.
IDF personnel were also posting photos of naked Palestinians reminiscent of those being done by ISIS militants against their victims prior to beheading them afterwards.
Washington has expressed “worries about the large number of civilian casualties,” but it has nevertheless offered military assistance to the Israeli military assault.
Local Gazan officials estimate that the number of deaths in the Palestinian enclave has reached 20,000, which is around 1% of the total population.
Meanwhile, the lawmakers in Washington have provided varied reactions to a series of US and UK retaliation strikes on Houthi targets in Yemen, with some doubting if President Joe Biden had full clearance for the maneuver.
On Thursday night, the US Air Force’s Mideast command reported that it had hit more than 60 targets at 16 locations in Yemen, including “air defense radar systems, launching systems, production facilities, and munitions depots.”
The US and its partners “will not tolerate” Houthi militant attacks on commercial shipping in the Red Sea, according to President Joe Biden, who also emphasized that attempts at negotiation preceded the decision. The strikes involved fighter jets and Tomahawk missiles.
Abdul-Malik Al-Houthi, the leader of the Houthi group, forewarned the US Wednesday that any attack on the group’s websites “will not go without a response.”
There won’t be an American attack without a retaliation. In a videotaped speech, Al-Houthi alluded to a strike against US and UK ships that had been carried out the day before and said, “The response will be greater than the attack that was carried out with 20 drones and a number of missiles.”
“We will not back down from our determination to target ships associated with Israel,” he continued.
The larger picture, of course, is that all the actors involved in this conflict—including Netanyahu—are unnecessary, and that a select few in powerful positions stand to gain significantly from it.
So far, the “defence sector” companies’s stock prices have not pickup yet.
Have the stock dealers become so cautious of the genocidal muders in Gaza that they would like to avoid any sort of link to it?
According to Oxfam yesterday, the Israeli force is killing 250 Palestinians on average every day, far more than any other significant conflict in recent memory in terms of daily casualties.
The UK-based international organisation warned in a statement that the lives of Palestinians in Gaza are at risk not only from Israel’s bombs, but also from hunger, disease and cold, noting that only ten per cent of the required amount of food is entering Gaza amid the severe lack of basic necessities such as blankets, hot water and fuel.
The Middle East director of Oxfam, Sally Abi Khalil, stated: “The scope and brutality that Israel is inflicting against Gaza are absolutely horrifying. The inhabitants of Gaza have lived in a living nightmare for a hundred days. There is no safe place, and famine threatens to strike the entire population.
She continued, “It is inconceivable that the international community is obstructing calls for a ceasefire while witnessing the deadliest rate of conflict of the twenty-first century unfold.”
