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
helping your Muslim brotherhood.
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.

Rand Paul will never be elected president—and that is a very good thing for our country, for a great many reasons. Paul is a libertarian first, a Republican second, and a conservative only when his libertarianism accidentally intersects with conservative values. And that’s not very often. Republicans, especially conservatives, have fought for civil rights for more than fifty years. Democrats were the principal opponents of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Paul, however, has gotten himself into trouble over the matter. For example, in an April 2010 videotaped with the Louisville Courier-Journal, he was asked whether he would have voted for the

Suppose a scientific conference on cancer prevention never addressed smoking, on the grounds that in a free society you can´t change private behavior, and anyway, maybe the statistical relationships between smoking and cancer are really caused by some other third variable. Wouldn´t some suspect that the scientists who raised these claims were driven by something—ideology, tobacco money—other than science? Yet in the current discussions about increased inequality, few researchers, fewer reporters, and no one in the executive branch of government directly addresses what seems to be the strongest statistical correlate of inequality in the United States: the rise of single-parent

After early complaints that out-of-state firms got the most jobs, some local construction trade workers and union members in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia say they´re now benefiting in a big way from the Marcellus and Utica Shale oil and gas boom. That vocal support from blue-collar workers complicates efforts by environmentalists to limit the drilling process known as fracking. "The shale became a lifesaver and a lifeline for a lot of working families," said Dennis Martire, the mid-Atlantic regional manager for the Laborers´ International Union, or LIUNA, which represents workers in numerous construction trades.

After a lengthy study of the plans for the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, the U.S. State Department issued an 11-volume report back in January confirming what most experts had already concluded long before then: the vital project would not damage the environment or increase the rate of carbon pollution. But liberal activists weren’t happy and have used the 90-day automatic review process that followed that report to furiously lobby the administration to stop the construction of the 1,700-mile pipeline from Alberta to the Gulf Coast refineries. The key player in that effort was Tom Steyer, the billionaire environmental

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
