As US Ships Approach, US Embassy In Egypt Denies Move Presages “Imminent US Invasion”
by Tyler Durden
With the situation in Egypt continuing to border on sheer chaos, many wonder what approach the US will take, so far having demonstrated its inability to decide how to swallow the humiliation of having a US-backed regime get swept away in a military coup while it continues supporting the country with both money and weapons. But while the State Department dithers, its head busy boating somewhere off the coast of Massachussetts, the US military is not wasting much time, and appears to be amassing a naval presence just off the coast of Egypt. No need to worry, though: Egypt’s Ahram reports that “the US Embassy in Egypt denied Saturday that US naval vessels near Egypt’s shores are sent in preparation for military action. A top Marine Corps general said Thursday that two US marine vessels approached Egypt’s Red Sea shore, raising concerns in the Egyptian media about an imminent military move.” “We deny false claims in the Egyptian press that US naval ships are in the vicinity of the Arabian Peninsula and the Suez Canal to militarily invade Egypt,” read a statement issued on the US embassy’s website.
