Suez Canal Crisis Anonymous 03/28/2021 (Sun) 20:53:20 Id: 0899f3 No. 8551
Why isn't any talking about the Suez Canal crisis? President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is considering moving the containers off the cargo ship. Do you understand how difficult and lengthy the process is gonna take? You need specialized heavy cranes to lift each 40 ton container and where are they gonna put all the containers? You can't just stack a bunch 40 ton containers in one spot on a fragile sandy desert with saltwater underneath the ground. The re-opening of Suez could take weeks or months if President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi decides to take this approach. https://archive.vn/FBXts

>>8551 Anything that harms the economy is a good thing.
The more important consideration is that it's suddenly become public knowledge that it's EASY AS FUCK for just about any idiot with a big boat to single-handedly cripple the world economy. Imagine a coordinated terrorist attack: two ships at the same time traverse the Panama Canal and Suez Canal, loaded with explosives, and then they scuttle. The one in Panama does so in the narrow area right before the locks, and the one in the Suez does so at the narrowest point. For probably months, no ships can pass either canal until the wreckage can be dismantled and removed.

>>8551 The interesting thing is how this one fuck up of a ship crippled so much. >>8613 Exactly. Anyone that wants to shit on the world just needs to fuck up for few spots to cripple countries around the world.
