"The U.S. military has repositioned a group of crisis response units off the coast of Egypt as the local political crisis continues to seethe, and pro-administration groups plan new support rallies on Friday.

The USS San Antonio bearing the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit is one of three ships that has moved into the northern Red Sea. It can respond to a series of potential missions, including rescues within Egypt or delivering supplies, or more drastic contingencies such as securing the nearby Suez Canal."

Woe be to the sand monkeys that think they can tamper with our canal!
