US in Egypt, polar ice melt, new depression

 Theresa Mitchell with the "news you're not supposed to know,"and  the strategic significance of the Suez.  Try these links: http://english.aljazeera.net/ http://rawstory.com/ US media, including Time magazine, are reporting that the US has two of its Marine carriers, the USS Kearsarge and USS Ponce, in the Red Sea, ready to attack Egypt. According to the pro-war and sometime disinformation site Debka, the Kearsarge is even closer, in the Great Bitter Lake of the Suez, thus parked within easy helicopter range of Cairo. There are 2,200 Marines in the combined carrier battle groups.  Lisa Hajjar of Aljazeera English reports that the new Vice President of Egypt is a favorite of the US and Israel, and, of course, is a torturer.
