An addendum to my previous post: The Beginnings of International Isolation???

The Flight Ban - Kerry Came With A Stick

It seems I might have been a little naive.  The timing of Kerry's visit and the FAA ban does seem a little too convenient/suspicious.  Otherwise what was the entire purpose of  his little visit?  From his point of view, without a subtle/not-so-subtle threat he didn't have anything new to bring to the region to 'persuade' Israel.

It is not as if he and Obama haven't tried something like this before.


Even if the FAA ban proves to be only temporary, it does appear from this to be the start of something new.
