Israel pre-announces missile test to stem Iran war fears
www.reuters.com...



(Reuters) - Israel took the unusual precaution of announcing on Thursday that it would soon test-fire a ballistic interceptor missile, hoping to avoid stoking war tensions with Iran...

...Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has made veiled threats to attack Iran should diplomacy fail to rein in its nuclear program.

Yup. That's just the thing to do to 'avoid war tensions'.

So, you'd rather they NOT announce the test?

Yes everyone should notify his neighbour when you will start practice shooting on his windows.

I feel like if Iran announced they were testing their missiles USA would say no or we will test ours on your people.

How about not having no test at all?

Israel wants to complain about Iran doing the same thing they are doing Benny is nothing but a hypocrite.

They did have their missile test in Jan and, no they weren't told that by the US. Please this is about Israel announcing a test stop trying to run the US into the matter.

anti-ballistic missile systems have proven ineffective.

it's like shooting a bullet with a bullet in mid-air from 1,000 yards out, but only on a much faster and acute scale.

it's more for the deterrent factor than anything else from the israelis.

Remember, when any country with "defensive" missile systems attacks another country, the "defensive" systems become part of the offensive strategy in terms of countering the retaliation strike.
