  1. Actually the fact that Iron Dome doesn’t work in populated areas makes sense here. One of the rockets landed in the sea, and both of the others that hit landed in areas next to the ocean, and indeed not particularly populated from an Israeli perspective, regardless of whether it did some minor damage to a building.

  2. Dear Richard,

    Missile defense systems to this point are no better than one part hope and one part performance, as I am sure you already know. Reagan became fascinated with Star Wars type missile defense back in the 1980s; 30 years later, with all of our defense spending in the US, we still haven’t done anything meaningful about shooting down rockets. Not just because of treaties and so forth; because the technology does not exist yet. It’s just not that easy to pick large numbers of fast moving objects out of the sky. Remember all those lies George Bush senor was peddling in 1990 about the great performance rate of the Patriot missile, which actually intercepted I think no better than 10% of the rockets fired by Saddam Hussein? Maybe Bush had stock in the company.

    The peace of mind of Israelis living in towns that border Lebanon, towns that are mostly built on settlements established on dubious grounds to begin with, is not my top concern. But at least missile interceptor programs tend not to kill people.

    One way that Hizbullah can thwart things like Iron Dome, if it should believe it has the need to do this, is to aim at a low trajectory, which makes interception much harder. As does of course short range firing. The crude katyusha rockets are ideal for getting past hi tech ( and expensive) interceptor systems, as crude weapons tend to be. Sophisticated weapons are best at fighting other sophisticated weapons.

    I think I have read in your column before that the best defense program is not to be at war with your neighbor at all, which I would prefer.

    Everybody thinks IDF is going to invade Lebanon again within two years; but people said this two or three years ago. Let’s hope that this does not happen.

  3. This A-Hole better stop and do a ball check before the Israeli Lobby and Netanyahu harvest them for good and put them in formaldehyde, along with Bush Jr’s balls

    This is an Israeli False Flag Operation – JUST LIKE IRAQ



    The great Pepe Escobar and Sibel Edmonds to the Rescue!

    “Russia’s ambassador in the UN Security Council, Vitaly Churkin, presented conclusive evidence – based on documents and Russian satellite images – of two rockets carrying toxic chemicals, fired from Douma, controlled by the Syrian “rebels”, and landing on East Ghouta. Hundreds of “rebels”, as well as civilians – including those children on the cover of Western corporate media papers – were killed. The evidence, says the Russian source, is conclusive. This is what Lavrov himself was hinting at yesterday.

    Sibel Edmonds is also reporting this story of Russian satellite imagery evidence that two chemical weapons shells striking the region originated from the Al Nusra (Al Qaeda units of the ‘Syrian Rebel Army’) HQ

    So now is the USS Carl Vinson going to attack OUR OWN PROXIES who fired the weapons?!

    Even better – since it is now CLEAR (from the Guardian) that the Israelis Unit 8200 have been providing the US all this phony information – this could be the unravelling of a MAJOR Israeli False Flag operation –


    This is like outing Mossad/Michael Ledeen for the Niger Uranium Forgeries BEFORE we were hoaxed into attacking Iraq by the Israelis and her Neocons
