This blockage is causing financial mayhem around the globe — & we are JUST in the early stage. The impact will start growing by the day. They are already saying that the U.S. might face a temporary shortage of new cars. PRICES WILL GO UP.
Somebody is making MONEY from this. Of that there can be no doubt or debate.
I find it hard to believe that it was blown sideways by a 40mps wind — the wall of containers acting as giant sails. A massive ship like this will have awfully powerful engines, side-thrusters & a state-of-the-art AUTO-PILOT. Yes, the 25 crew were all Indian BUT there were two ‘qualified’ Suez Canal pilots on the bridge at the time.
I am JUST asking the question — because no one else has.
