....The Suez Canal is a strategic Egyptian waterway which connects between the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea.
According to eyewitnesses, the U.S. battleships were the largest to have crossed the Canal in many years, Al-Quds reported.
Egyptian opposition members have criticized the government for cooperating with the U.S. and Israeli forces and allowing the ships' passage through
Egyptian territorial waters.
They said the viewed the event as Egyptian participation in an international scandal, and added that the opposition would not sit with its arms
crosses while the country allowed a fleet of U.S. and Israeli military ships to cross.
Interesting timing with the Iranian ships having just set sail . I can't find any other articles about it on google news yet but this is only just
coming out I gather . Can we try and find out the name of these ships, when they set sail, where they were stationed before making their way here -
what is this all about, is America flexing its muscles here ?
I am hearing the drums.....
