Since the start of the war in Yemen in March 2015, the destructive role of the US in this armed conflict has been clear, which has triggered the world's worst humanitarian crisis of the 21st century.
The US role in obstructing the deal between Yemen and Saudi Arabia is linked to its ambitions to control the Bab al-Mandeb Strait and Yemen's islands in the Red Sea and Arabian Sea.
Washington's efforts to control shipping lanes in Bab al-Mandeb and Yemen's islands in the Red Sea and Arabian Sea, since the launch of the aggression, have been a focus of US officials' attention.
Among those statements is the confession of the former commander of the US forces in the central region, John McKenzie, in an interview with the Al-Jazeera channel in May 2022. He said that the United States is in full coordination with the United Arab Emirates (UAE). with regard to the establishment of the military base on the Yemeni island of Mayon, located at the entrance to the Bab al-Mandeb Strait.
This makes this strait the obligatory passage to the Suez Canal and the Mediterranean and, therefore, one of the most important maritime communication nodes in the world, connecting European ports with Asia and the Persian Gulf.
Mindful of the importance of the Bab el-Mandib strait to its malign foreign policy, the US intervened directly and indirectly in the Yemeni war to reduce the growing influence of the Yemeni Ansarolah popular movement.
For the past two years, the United States has worked to establish military alliances in the Red Sea under the guise of "protecting shipping lanes," without the Red Sea shipping lanes having been the subject of any operations that disrupt the safe passage for civilian ships, despite the fierce war in Yemen.
The United States manufactures pretexts to have a military presence in the Red Sea, however, Yemen rejected the US justifications that it seeks to create a state of anxiety in the navigation traffic in this sea.
This multiplied the desire of the Americans to occupy the international trade corridors, with the aim of stifling the accelerated economic growth of China and the rest of the international competitors, which makes the issue of continuing the war and preventing any possibility of peace between Sana'a and Riyadh are extremely important to the United States.
It seems that Washington will not lose the opportunity of the war that it sponsored with all its capabilities, without imposing its presence on the islands and coasts of Yemen.
However, Washington's plans collided with the firmness and refusal of Sanaa, which is reaffirming, in the words of the leader of the Yemeni Ansarolah popular movement, Abdulmalik al-Houthi: there is no peace without the withdrawal of foreign forces from all of Yemen, the lifting of the blockade, the cessation of the war and the payment of indemnities.
