International shipping lines are being forced to scale back or suspend port calls to Yemen as the conflict gets worse, putting pressure on supplies of food as prices rise in local markets. Yemen imports more than 90 percent of its food, including most of its wheat and all its rice, to feed a population of 25 million. Much of its needs had been serviced by foreign ships. Saudi Arabia and Arab allies have launched air strikes against the Iran-allied Houthi movement, which has taken most of the country and forced President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi to flee to Riyadh.THE PERSIAN/ARAB HEGEMONY WAR AKA THE SUNNI-SHIA CIVIL WAR RAGING IN NORTH AFRICA AND THE MIDDLE EAST (AND ESPECIALLY INSIDE YEMEN) IS ALREADY EFFECTING LOCAL SHIPPING.
"AROUND THE CORNER", THE PERSIAN GULF IS AN EVEN MORE CRITICAL SHIPPING LANE - GLOBALLY SO.
JIMMY CARTER - THE SECOND WORST POTUS OF ALLTIME - DECLARED THE CARTER DOCTRINE TO PROTECT IT, BASICALLY SAYING THE USA WOULD GO TO WAR TO KEEP IT FREE; WIKI:
The Carter Doctrine was a policy proclaimed by President of the United States Jimmy Carter in his State of the Union Address on January 23, 1980, which stated that the United States would use military force if necessary to defend its national interests in the Persian Gulf.NOW THAT OBAMA HAS ALIGNED THE USA TO IRAN AND AGAINST ISRAEL AND SAUDI ARABIA, IT'S TIME THE SAUDI KINGDOM AND THE JEWISH STATE DID TWO THINGS:
STAGE A JOINT PREEMPTIVE ATTACK ON IRAN'S NUCLEAR AND MILITARY SITES.
IMMEDIATELY BEGIN CONSTRUCTION OF A "TRANS-ARABIAN-ISRAELI PIPELINE" RUNNING THROUGH JORDAN - ONE THAT COULD BRING ARAB OIL TO EUROPE WITHOUT GOING NEAR IRAN OR THE PERSIAN GULF.
