I take this show of force to be a warning to Iran following the passage of the UNSC sanctions resolution. The bad news: It is only US and Israel; should have included NATO ships or, at least. "coalition of the willing". Perhaps this show was a payment to Netanyahu who desires to "link" and "condition" the peace process with the Palestinians to some action against Iran. In this case, perhaps we will see some progress in the peace process since the US did its share. But I bet Netanyahu will find some excuse not to proceed.
