The naval war in the Red Sea continues to develop, with expectations growing that the U.S. will soon start bombing Yemen, while the Houthis continue to threaten shipping by attacking all ships passing through. The U.S. is building a coalition in the area to protect ships, but that coalition apparently does not involve any of the key Arab oil-producing states (except for the small island country of Bahrain), such as Saudi Arabia, which has recently made peace with Yemen after years of war with them.

So the big question now is will Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, UAE, Qatar, and other Gulf nations join this effort, or stay out in support of the Palestinian people?

Military actions in the Red Sea seem inevitable now, based on the rhetoric coming from both sides.

Houthi attacks out of Yemen on commercial shipping in the Red Sea and vital Bab al-Mandab Strait has become daily, resulting in the Pentagon unveiling a multi-nation naval task force to thwart the ongoing missile and drone assaults. But the Houthis say they’ll remain undeterred in operations meant as retaliation for the Gaza war, vowing to keep up the attacks.

“The American-formed coalition is to protect Israel and militarize the sea without any justification, and will not stop Yemen from continuing its legitimate operations in support of Gaza,” wrote Houthi spokesman Mohammed Abdel-Salam on X.

The Houthis starting weeks ago declared war on any ship headed to Israeli ports or that’s linked to the country; however, a number of vessels have been targeted which apparently have no connection.

There’s a growing list of major shipping and container companies which have temporarily halted transit through the Bab al-Mandab Strait and the Red Sea:

  • Italian-Swiss giant Mediterranean Shipping Company
  • France’s CMA CGM
  • Germany’s Hapag-Lloyd
  • Belgium’s Euronav
  • oil giant BP
  • Denmark’s A.P Moller-Maersk
  • Taiwan shipping firm Evergreen
  • Norway-based Frontline

A couple of these represent the bulk of traffic, for example Maersk accounts for 15 percent of global container freight and Frontline is among the world’s largest shipping companies. At this point we might say, who hasn’t halted operations in these ultra high risk waters at this point, as insurance premiums and risk related costs rise.

On Monday US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin announced the launch of Operation Prosperity Guardian – a new “multinational security initiative” involving the navies of ten coalition nations which will patrol the Red Sea. “Countries that seek to uphold the foundational principle of freedom of navigation must come together to tackle the challenge posed by this non-state actor,” Austin said while on a trip to Israel.

The US defense chief identified the countries which will make up the coalition as follows:

Operation Prosperity Guardian is bringing together multiple countries to include the United Kingdom, Bahrain, Canada, France, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Seychelles and Spain, to jointly address security challenges in the southern Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden, with the goal of ensuring freedom of navigation for all countries and bolstering regional security and prosperity.

“The Red Sea is a critical waterway that has been essential to freedom of navigation and a major commercial corridor that facilitates international trade,” Austin had emphasized.

Given that US and UK warships have already intercepted drones and inbound rockets, there’s a high likelihood that these allied nations will see military action in the tense waterway. (Full Article.)

Iran has warned that the U.S. will face “extraordinary problems” if they start a war in the Red Sea:

Iran warns US will face ‘problems’ with Red Sea task force plans

Iran’s Defence Minister Mohammad Reza Ashtiani has warned that a planned United States-backed multinational task force to protect shipping in the Red Sea would face “extraordinary problems”.

Ashtiani’s comments came after the US said last week it was in talks with other countries to set up a task force following a spate of attacks by the Iran-aligned Houthis in Yemen on ships in the Red Sea.

“If they make such an irrational move, they will be faced with extraordinary problems,” Ashtiani told the official Iranian Students’ News Agency (ISNA).

“Nobody can make a move in a region where we have predominance,” he said, referring to the Red Sea. (Full article.)

Former CIA analyst Larry C. Johnson appeared on Redacted yesterday to discuss what some of those “problems” might be for the U.S. in the Red Sea, which he says includes reduced military forces arming their ships, as well as the need to port and restock ammunition.

Hussain Al Bukhaiti, a political analyst aligned with the Houthi movement, states that the Houthis are not afraid of the United States and their coalition.

The U.S., of course, has been killing people in Yemen since the Obama administration without any formal declaration of war, and Obama was the first President in the history of the U.S. to execute, by drone attack, a 16-year-old U.S. citizen who was living in Yemen without any due process of law.

When Trump became President, he continued Obama’s actions by killing more U.S. citizens in Yemen without any trial or due process of law, including an 8-year-old girl, as one of his first actions as President of the United States. (Source.)

Those who have read the Bible know all too well that this is not the first battle in the Red Sea where the outcome proved disastrous for the stronger military forces. As recorded in Exodus chapter 14, the King of Egypt (Pharaoh) chased after the caravan of fleeing Hebrew slaves and met up with them at the Red Sea, where Moses parted the Red Sea that allowed the Hebrews to pass through on dry ground, and when Pharaoh’s great army chased after them, the Red Sea closed up and became a graveyard for Egypt’s mighty army, the most powerful army in the world at that time.

Then the angel of God, who had been traveling in front of Israel’s army, withdrew and went behind them.

The pillar of cloud also moved from in front and stood behind them, coming between the armies of Egypt and Israel.

Throughout the night the cloud brought darkness to the one side and light to the other side; so neither went near the other all night long.

Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the LORD drove the sea back with a strong east wind and turned it into dry land. The waters were divided, and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left.

The Egyptians pursued them, and all Pharaoh’s horses and chariots and horsemen followed them into the sea.

During the last watch of the night the LORD looked down from the pillar of fire and cloud at the Egyptian army and threw it into confusion. He made the wheels of their chariots come off so that they had difficulty driving.

And the Egyptians said, “Let’s get away from the Israelites! The LORD is fighting for them against Egypt.”

Then the LORD said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand over the sea so that the waters may flow back over the Egyptians and their chariots and horsemen.”

Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and at daybreak the sea went back to its place. The Egyptians were fleeing toward it, and the LORD swept them into the sea.

The water flowed back and covered the chariots and horsemen—the entire army of Pharaoh that had followed the Israelites into the sea.

Not one of them survived. (Exodus 14:19-28)

(Here is a scene on YouTube of the 1956 Hollywood production film “The Ten Commandments” where Moses parted the Red Sea.)

I have recently written several articles on the Book of Revelation in the Bible, and I speculated that of the 7 “bowl” judgments mentioned in Revelation chapter 16, the first one may have already been poured out upon the earth, representing the COVID-19 “vaccines” and those that chose to receive them, since the first bowl is described like this:

Then I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, “Go, pour out the seven bowls of God’s wrath on the earth.” The first angel went and poured out his bowl on the land, and ugly and painful sores broke out on the people who had the mark of the beast and worshiped his image.” (Revelation 16:1-2)

If that interpretation is correct, then what is the second bowl judgement that might be imminent?

The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it turned into blood like that of a dead man, and every living thing in the sea died. (Revelation 16:3)

In a previous article, I speculated that the sea mentioned here without name, could be the Mediterranean Sea that borders Israel/Gaza, but after events this past week, I think it is more likely this could be referring to the Red Sea.

Many of the symbolic terms used in Revelation of future judgments in the “Last Days” resemble the plagues that were inflicted upon Egypt in the book of Exodus, the second book of the Bible.

The “sea” that “turned into blood like that of a dead man” in Revelation chapter 16 now seems to potentially point to the Red Sea, if indeed we are entering into the times prophesied in Revelation, and the “blood” could be the blood of American forces and members of their coalition.

If so, it won’t be the first time in history that the Red Sea has become a graveyard for military forces from a dominant world power.
