Although I am in general agreement with you here David, at least on the main points - there's one small problem with that transit of the Suez by an American carrier task force:

I know, I know. Different carrier. And I can't seem to find out precisely where the USS Harry Truman was on June 18th. But I know where the ship was on the 8th - Marseille. And unless some things have drastically changed from many, many moons ago, such a visit was likely to have lasted between eight and twelve days - unless American sailors these days have developed allergies that require them to go romping about France wearing swimming goggles.

The habits of sailors anywhere are not the subject of conversation in polite circles - Her Majesty would not be amused!
