especially now that Gaza's war is quiet.
All distractions for Iran's more nefarious nuclear capers.
How many Muslims and Christians has Iran murdered so far I wonder?
Israel not so much, thank G-d, even with another war.
The IAF patriots are supposed to be used in a missile defense role working alongside Arrow not for shooting down UAVS as they have dedicated anti aircraft systems as well so why waste missile defense on UAVS?
"weird personality " is an understatement,.
Somebody has to do some psychiatric study of their brain structure or whatever you call it in medical terms.
Some doctor will get the nobel prize for working it out - go for it !! its worth more than the prize money-
The prize will be in the category of "benefits to humanity"
You have it exactly backwards. Patriot batteries can be used for middle-range missiles. Iron Dome targets short-range missiles (keep in mind that the standard is an ICBM; that's how distances are calculated in terms of missile trajectory and fuel capacity).
By the way -- the Patriot is very effective. The problem with SCUDs is that they were then, and continue to be now, wildly inaccurate. Especially when -- as is their tendency -- they burn their fuel too quickly or simply run out of fuel, which means the heat signature is gone, either way.
Russian weaponry isn't all that good; SCUDs shouldn't be a standard of measure for anything.
