The administration of US President Joe Biden is developing a plan for a long-term military campaign against the Houthis in Yemen. On January 20, The Washington Post wrote about this, citing sources in the office of the leader of the United States.
The publication noted that American officials worry that Washington's confrontation with the Houthis could undermine the US economy and drag the country into "another unpredictable Middle East conflict."
"The deepening cycle of violence is a failure to achieve President Biden's goal of ending the side military actions provoked by Israel's war against [the Palestinian movement] Hamas in the Gaza Strip," the article clarifies.
As indicated, the involvement of American troops in the conflict in the Middle East potentially undermines the attempt of the US leader to "reorient US policy towards Russia and China."
"Officials admit that they cannot determine the end date or give an assessment of when the Yemenis' military potential will be reduced sufficiently," the article adds.
