There are some amazing defensive weapons coming out - they have some new anti-anti-tank weapons which, for lack of a better analogy, amount to a bullet blasting another bullet out of the air.

Iron dome, as I have read elsewhere, uses some highly refined radar related programs to interdict the kind of rockets that have rianed down on Israel by the thousands for the last few years.

The question is, how will this effect the 'peace process'?

First of all, don't be put off by self-proclaimed scholars on the integrity of your sources. It's only a matter of opinion.

As to the question of how it will affect the peace process? Who knows. Every thing that Israel does has their critics in an uproar.

Perhaps it takes the preemptive strike out of the equation now. And in turn a deterrent to Israels enemies to have egg on their face again . Last time they really attacked Israel, it did not work out so well for the Arab states. 6 day war...

Again, that's a matter of opinion. Your opinion.

I consider Israel's enemies nefarious, despotic regimes. That's my opinion.

I suppose there are no other despotic regimes of Arab persuasion? At least Israel doesn't stone innocents for religious reasons on national TV! Nice try but the facts don't back up your opinions!

Not extreme at all hey - well balanced response. Maybe you could try for something even more outrageous to back up your case - here is something - Jews eat other peoples children and feast on the blood of the unborn - that should get a few votes....

I'm sure you do - and you would know about these kinds of things how ? TV ? Radio ? Newpapers ? Or even better - the internet ?

Tell me about some literature you have read on the issue - something without a religious bent - have no interest in garrulous babbling lunatics.

Ahh yes reading your posts, I can see your degrees in Jewish Hatred shine. Do they give those at Devry now?

Please show me the names of the college texts that support your opinion that it is the jews that are evil. Seriously this should not be an issue for one so educated.

anyhooo back to the question at hand


Iron Dome


there has been some controversy over the choice of going to iron dome.
