The fifth fleet has all ways been in that area so this isnt unusual.
The Fifth Fleet maintains a visible and powerful force to counter and deter threats to the Arabian [Persian] Gulf area. All this is is normal troop deployment a change out in aircraft carriers. So id have to say your right this isnt the attack. when you see the 6th fleet move through the suez then we have something going on .

Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't want it showing up at my front door step, but I'm just saying, if you were going to sacrifice a carrier to start WW3, this is the ship you would give to the gods of war.
