Berry spotted it and it is functioning as intended which Adwil proved to the idiot .

Iron Dome is something that really gets under Berry skin he does not like the idea of Clever Jews

As you can see the US Army has tried tested observed and seen it in action and purchased the system https://www.defensenews.com/digital-show-dailies/smd/2019/08/12/its-official-us-army-inks-iron-dome-deal/

You're desperate, BM.

If you had a working system there would be thousands all over the world.

Not just two systems to allegedly be tested next year by the US!

The truth is that Iron Sieve (Mark 1) was defunded in Feb and Aug 2015 and ripped up, the director frog-marched from his desk in Dec 2015.

12th Aug 2019 - The contract to purchase two Iron Dome systems for the U.S. Army’s interim cruise missile defense capability has been finalized, according to the deputy in charge of the service’s air and missile defense modernization efforts ... partly manufactured in the United States.

Now that the contract is set in stone, the Army will be able to figure out delivery schedules ... fill its urgent capability gap for cruise missile defense on an interim basis. Congress mandated the Army deploy two batteries by fiscal 2020 in the service’s fiscal 2019 budget.

Iron Dome could feed into an enduring capability, depending on how it performs in the interim, Youngman said during a separate interview shortly before the symposium.

We're still hearing of the totally discredited Iron Sieve and its important to understand what may be going on.

The US paid ($1 billion or $4 billion?) for Israel to develop a short-range (slow/ lower-atmosphere) missile defense system.

That system unquestionably failed and is no more.

Though it is possible that some parts of it (perhaps the radar or the computer system that predicts the path of the incoming Qassam) could be good - and that might be what the US is testing (a full 4 years after development stopped!!!!)

Lastly, Israel is still firing so-called interceptors - mostly in order to claim that its being rocketed and must retaliate and kill dozens of Palestinians - but also, in case of a real attack, to mask the sound of bangs on the ground as would frighten the horses.

Jenifer , You are Joking ?

FIRSTLY they have Kurdistan which may be de facto but try taking it from them which includes bits of Turkey Syria and Iraq , I accept they do not have a state per se

Kurdistan in Iraq is autonomous

I'm not quite sure what BM is argueing for on this one.

Maybe that destitute and traumatised and grieving Syrian Kurds pile into Iraq and live happily ever afterwards?

Now I'm sure he'll say that that can be done ... but his example had the British Army and a lot of money behind it. And, while it was getting going for 28 years, only accepted non-religious youngsters - even expelling the indolent who arrived. And, once it was started, blackmailed other nations into handing over many $billions - then did the same again 50 years later to top up their coffers.

Its a bit unlikely that a section of Iraq could possibly operate the same, even if backed by unlimited US weapons.

Seems the news media forgot that Donald J. Trump saw it coming

249 years. I guess we had a good run. Greece, Rome, British Empire, I guess it’s our turn to end greatness.
