U.S. Carrier Abraham Lincoln Passes Through Suez Canal In Route To Mediterranean

Aircraft Carrier Abraham Lincoln Passes Through Suez Canal On Route To Iran As Tensions Soar Tehran tried to call Washington’s bluff on Wednesday, when it threatened to start stockpiling enriched uranium and heavy water again – which would constitute a violation of the JCPOA’s terms – unless the treaty’s signatories abide by their commitments to buy oil and offer other financial relief, something that American sanctions have rendered impossible. But in what appears to be an attempt to show Tehran who’s boss, and that it’s not bluffing, Washington committed to another threatening display of force. Reuters reports that the USS Abraham Lincoln, which had been dispatched to the Mediterranean last week amid worsening tensions with Iran, has passed through the Suez Canal, the first stop in what appears to be a journey into Iranian waters.

The report cited the Canal Authority as its main source. The latest naval map from Stratfor shows the USS Lincoln (CVN-72) in the Mediterranean as of mid-week, and now reportedly having entered the Red Sea.
