The Russians are coming! The Russians are coming!

Oh wait, it’s just the United States Navy: The Free Lance–Star:

Before a Norfolk-based Navy squadron heads to Iraq, it will be training for combat on the Rappahannock River.

Navy Lt. Michael Quaresimo, a training officer with Little Creek Naval Amphibious Base, said a 12-person team will conduct exercises on the river Tuesday through Thursday.

Quaresimo said training would occur within 21/2 miles east and west of the Port Royal bridge on U.S. 301, as well as at Fort A.P. Hill in Caroline County.


He encouraged people boating on the river not to approach the Navy gunboats, for safety reasons.

Yeah, I would recommend staying away from the *cough*SEALs*cough*.

UPDATE: For those doubting my SEAL conclusion, according to Wikipedia:

Naval Amphibious Base Little Creek, a naval base in Virginia Beach, Virginia, is home to SEAL Teams 2, 4, 8 and 10.
