Why are these warships going to Egypt? Don’t they have snow to shovel or something like that in Connecticut?
Pentagon officials emphasized that military intervention in Egypt was not being contemplated and that the warships were being moved only for contingency purposes in case evacuations became necessary.
The Kearsarge, an amphibious assault ship carrying 700 to 800 troops from the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit, and the Ponce have arrived in the Red Sea, putting them off Egypt’s shores in case the situation worsens.
Ok, pending a potential WikiLeak, we won’t know what’s actually planned.
