Israel´s Iron Dome Has Intercepted
More Than 150 Rockets

ABC News, by Russell Goldman

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 11/18/2012 5:16:06 AM

Israel said that it will install a fifth "Iron Dome" battery before the end of the year, adding another installation to the country´s missile defense system, which has proven itself this week, intercepting more than 150 rockets fired from the Gaza Strip. The missile defense system, which can identify enemy rockets, determine if they pose a threat to populated areas, and destroy them within a matter of seconds, has been praised by Israel´s leaders for saving hundreds of lives. The system, however, comes with a steep price. Each interceptor missile, which includes a radar guidance system, costs $40,000.

I wonder if this writer would worry about the cost if a rocket was headed his way?

What was the cost of the stimulus package?? And how many lives did it save?

I know it saved one job-- Obama´s! Paid for enough votes to seat this pain in the butt back into our collective lives for four more years.

Steep price? The population do Israel is about 8 million, so 150 do these interceptors have cost each citizen ~ 75 cents. The world is upside down.

No wonder Obama appears to be anti-Israeli, while snubbing Prime Minister Netanyahu. There is much to be admired in the strength and patriotism which exists there, to the vexation of the U.S. president.
.... I´m still amazed at American Jews, who are apt to watch Israel attacked from all sides, while America opts to stay uninvolved.

It helps to read the article. There was no focus on the cost, it was merely mentioned as informational. The piece is really about the effectiveness of the system.

With the Egyptians no longer preventing the rockets from getting to Gaza, the cost could eventually be a concern in the long run as expensive missiles are used to destroy cheap missiles. Israel will have to plug the hole in the weapons transfer dike. This will mean boots on the ground in Gaza and a possible confrontation with Egypt.

While I find it hard to believe each interceptor missile goes for $40k apiece, wondering why Israel didn´t wallpaper the land along the Gaza strip with these. Poster #1´s comment also noted.

It is a good thing if Israel has a defensive weapon that is effective. More power to them. The real question on its cost is what is the cost of this defense vs the cost of the offensive weapon fired against them? Can the muslim hoardes bankrupt them by firing on them. Defence is good but defence alone is a dangerous proposition. Why is the left so opposed to defensive weapons against the nukes in the cold war ridiculing them as "star wars". The left is animated by our enemies!

"Read the article"? Surely #7 jests.

Most of the replies posted on the site are generated by the headline and/or the intro.

It takes a serious reader/poster to read the article before posting. The essence of the article is almost never in either the headline or the intro. But...

Failing that, a driveby wisecrack will do?

This is a highly informational article - maybe too much so as it gives more information on the system than seems prudent.

Once it was decided it was possible, the rest was just engineering. Glad to see it got done and is protecting people.

Kinda like the seawall: it you´re serious about protecting your people, you get it done. If you are unserious, you worry about the size of the soda they´re drinking or if they have free contraceptives...

But Israel is also firing its own missiles into Gaza to destroy Hamas´s missile installations, which will continually decrease Hamas´s missile supply aimed at Israel.

Until now, the only people capable of destroying evildoers while remaining invulnerable themselves have been comicbook heroes. Superman, for example. Now we have Supernation, Israel with its Iron Dome.

There is no hope for the Palestinians unless they beat their missiles into plowshares and start working peacefully with Israel to rebuild their country.

Israel in cooperation with Northrup Grumman in 1996 successfully developed THEL - tactical high energy laser - to shoot down incoming ordnance.

2002 the design shot down incoming test rockets and missels. The mobile version successfully shot down 40+ incoming mortar rounds.

They´ve got equipment, like we have equipment no one has yet seen.

While it is true the cost was only mentioned in passing, Israel can afford it. THEY have not squandered their national treasure on welfare queens, cell phones and bribes to unions. They do not have the crushing debt the USA has, and never will. They have wisely spent their money where it counts: defense.

$40,000 a piece? That´s CHEAP!

An AGM-65 Maverick, optically guided, tank-busting missile hanging off a hard point on an A-10 Warthog (or F-15E, F-16, F/A-18...) costs $1 million a piece! That´s one million dollars for one missile. And it takes out a tank.

At $40,000 a piece, Israel can get 25 of these interceptor missiles for the price of ONE of our AGM-65´s.

Ldot posters: doing the research the paid, legacy media can´t be bothered to do on their own.

Iron Dome is proving an incredibly wonderful and effective system, BUT:

1. It is not Reagan´s "star wars" ballistic missile defense system, much as a unicycle is not a Chevy Tahoe,

and

2. $40,000 is very cheap for a modern precision-guided missile, BUT it is shooting down a lot of Qassam style missiles that cost about $500. It *can* shoot down bigger stuff, if there is any, up to even small aircraft. The US makes the Patriot missile for big stuff, at about $2,000,000 per missile - but even that is not the same as Reagan´s "star wars".

Mass-produced let´s say the Iron Dome "tamir" missiles could get down to even $10,000 each. Again, for modern military stuff, that would be next to a miracle. But again on the other side, sometimes you have to launch 2 or 3 or 4 to be sure to hit a target. And finally, some get through, especially when a bunch come at one time.

I´m really curious how the lasers are coming along too, but it turns out they are just NOT the same as Star Trek phases. Latest public info on them is at the 10kw level, they can only run for a few minutes before overheating, and targeting is a MUCH tougher task than anyone really thought.

Get ready for the Occupy "progressives" to intervene actively, #14. From a forum in the area close to where I once lived:

Dear Neighbors,

Here´s information about a local demonstration this afternoon:

And there follows a link to the OccupyRaleigh org which demands a stop to the so-called war on Gaza and "an end to Israel´s most recent attack on the Palestinian people."

Of course, no mention of the obvious--the number of rockets fired into Israel in the last year and, particularly, the number fired in the last few days (which was 371 last time I looked and must be more by now). The IDF blog website has been hacked by Anonymous, unfortunately. I´ll post a separate thread on that in a moment.

Just think of all Israel is losing in tourism, which I am sure accounts for much of their income.

I personally took a trip to Israel after my first year of employment and it has been and will always be the highlight of my life. The Bible came alive and the respect I gained for the Jewish people, of course, knowing Jesus was a Jew, and that was His homeland.

God bless the Jewish people and I pray for their survival and even rebounding again and again, thanks to their faith and values, which we, in the US, could use/emulate!

The family values I witnessed there would put US to shame. They spent time together and appreciated each other, knowing God´s blessings and His promise to bless Israel and also, to all who blessed Israel, He would bless and those who cursed Israel, He would curse.

Time to stop and consider that it is God Himself who is cursing those who come against Israel, yet they continue to think they can challege Almighty God and win. Not too smart!

Pray for Israel and receive God´s continual blessings now in this life and God´s promise of eternal life to all who accept/receive Jesus as their Messiah/Lord/Savior.

It seems an important piece of that information has bee ignored in the posts. That info is--- Dick Clark WH adviser and ABC reporter has just told the Muzzies that the system can´t eliminate hundreds of the 500 dollar missiles thrown at them at once.
Gee thanks Obie your media is still at work

Yeah and Obie tried to force Bibbie to tell him if and where Israel has nukes and got stonewalled.
Many American Jews seem to have a lingering collective guilt over the 6 million Jews murdered in WW2 while they didn´t lift a hand that makes them wish Israel gone and forgotten.

I remember when SDS or some leftist organization on campus was ridiculing the Reagan Star Wars program in the late 1980´s during my college days. They thought it was a pipe dream then but for all the grass the Bill Ayers-types were smoking, they didn´t have the imagination or foresight that any anti-missile missile system would work.

I know Iron Dome and the SM-3 missile system will probably not work as well for intercontinental ballistic missiles, which would be coming almost straight down and still be lethal after its destruction particularly if it is a nuke, but the tech works fine if you can intercept the ICBM in the boost phase as it is climbing up to cruising altitude. Probably, a very high energy laser may work better if it could hit the ICBM before it descends but the radiation dispersion in the environment, though less lethal in the short term than the blast damage, would still be destructive in the long run.

Just three months after Rep. Trey Radel resigned his safe Republican seat in southwest Florida, Republican voters have chosen his likely successor: Curt Clawson. He won the election the old-fashioned way, by making a ton of money in the private sector and then splattering the airwaves with TV ads. In the process, Clawson rolled up endorsements from local Tea Party leaders and from the Tea Party Express. It wasn´t that he was particularly conservative -- he had no prior political record, and had even donated to Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow. It was enough, according to the Tea Party Express, that he

LAS VEGAS -- Federal authorities remain silent about their next plans to confront Cliven Bundy at his Bunkerville ranch. Both sides are fighting over history, with federal courts denying Bundy´s claims of "ancestral rights" on the Virgin River valley. The I-Team dug into century-old records to examine Bundy´s claims. At the Bunkerville camp next to Cliven Bundy´s ranch, there are constant reminders of history. Revolutionary War flags, ancient Greek mottos and native American symbols, all mixing together to create a growing identity and narrative for protestors. This land is unusually fertile and green for southern Nevada. Cliven Bundy grows melons there. They are said

The Supreme Court let states ban race as a factor in college admissions. That’s a good first step toward race-blind education that can focus on root problems. Shortly before his assassination President Kennedy addressed the nation on June 11, 1963 to explain his decision to federalize the Alabama National Guard to integrate the University of Alabama. In part, Kennedy offered: It ought to be possible in short for every American to enjoy the privileges of being an American, without regard to his race or his color.

It was one of the more raucous decisions in a while, with plenty of twists and turns in terms of who went with the majority or the dissent and what they said. But the Washington Examiner dug a bit deeper later in the day, finding what amounted to a bit of a slug-fest in the footnotes between Sonia Sotomayor and Antonin Scalia.

Nine people were charged in the kidnapping of 63-year-old Frank Janssen, the father of Wake Forest Assistant District Attorney Colleen Janssen. Frank Janssen was abducted April 5 from his Wake Forest home and held captive for five days in Atlanta before being rescued by the FBI.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau.

As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey.
