LOL Because Iron Dome ONLY intercepts those missiles that are on trajectory to hit the most populated centers, down-town, kindergardens. Moreover, it's a brand new system (first tested in 2011). Unique in its kind, built with Israel's limited resources in record short period of time. By comparison, Russian S-300 system or American Patriot have been in design since 1960's! Also, to provide ideal coverage Israel needs at least 13 batteries, ideally 20+. Right now, Israel only has 5 including one used for training of crews (another problem because you got to train people to use it in very short period of time). That means it's got a lot of kinds have yet to be worked out. In the beginning Iron Dome's interception rate was "only" 75%. Now it's over 90%. The best part? The 5th battery of Iron Dome is 2.0 version which does something that Iron Dome designers didn't even plan on ---- it intercepts Fajr and Zelzal rockets, which is a big achievement. Because those rockets are more powerful and costly, suddenly 40,000 dollar Tamir interceptor used by Iron Dome sounds like a bargain. Either way, LASER-based protection is the future, but the joint American-Israeli Nautilus project has not proven viable until 2015-2020 and have their own limitations such as cost of development, dangerous chemicals recquired for the laser to operate and the weather conditions that limit the laser dramatically. So Israel just cannot wait for laser tech to mature in 2020. It needs protection now. Which is why Iron Dome is so welcome against cheaper Grad rockets & mortar. [/quote] ah fair enough thank you for the information:cheers: [/quote] You're welcome. There is SO much ignorance, propaganda, clever disinformantion financed by Muslim-Marxist elites, so much lies and libel all over the world when it comes to Israel/Jews... it's breath-taking. Iron Dome is just another small example of that. So I try to correct some of the basic ones. Iron Dome is a unique system, it's very young, very sophisticated, but it was never designed to replace the OFFENSIVE capabilities or doctrine. It's definately a 2-edged sword for Israel because of false sense of security and political restrains associated with ID. In fact, one of the reason Obama is helping finance it is because if it weren't for Iron Dome, there would already be several mini-Castlead operations in 2011-2012 because of never-ceasing rocket salvos by Gaza terrorists, including no less than 5 escalations from April 2011 to Fall of 2012. Which would have risked igniting a war with Hezbollah maybe even Syria, Iran. Which would have also pissed off Obama's new friend Mohammed Morsi in Egypt. Which in addition to forcing Obama to come to Israel's defense militarily, would have further tanked the US and world economy. Which, in turn, would have caused Obama to LOSE re-election bid. I mean, he almost lost anyway -- and really, it took massive George Soros voting fraud for him to win swing states. So that's why Iron Dome has been in the news so much both in US and Israeli Left (Ehud Barak is Defense Minister under Netanyahu, but he's an old Leftie at heart, trust me) [/quote]
Israel may launch a ground invasion into Gaza, Benjamin Netanyahu has indicated, after a weekend of escalating cross border violence.
By lunchtime on Sunday, more than 70 rockets and mortars had landed in Israel from Gaza within 24 hours, leaving six Palestinians killed and eight Israelis injured.
At a cabinet meeting on Sunday morning, Mr Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, said: "The world needs to understand that Israel will not sit idly by in the face of attempts to attack us. We are prepared to intensify the response."
One unnamed senior Israeli government official, said: "A ground incursion is certainly not out of the question although we hope it won't come to that."
