Wow Chuck Hagel, what has the Khazarian McBagelton lobby do to you! It seems only few months ago, you seemed like America's last hope to stop the Zionist Menace stalking the globe... and now sending those arrogant money-hoggers free Ospreys, radars, missiles, refuelers & probably even more sophisticated tech off the 'black budget', too? To be financed almost entirely by the taxes paid by fine upstanding Storm-Front patriots?!!

NOOOOO!!!!!

Sometimes even the most voracious of parasites gets a "bad batch".

Let's hope they work JUST as well as that cracked "Iron Dome"

“Israeli Anti-Missiles Fail in Eilat Attack”
http://www.veteranstoday.com/2013/04/17/israe...

“Iron Dome has an operative 70% failure rate.

EXCERPT “ One of the characteristics of antimissile weapons is their being non-symmetric. Building missiles is much cheaper than the antimissile system. A Qassam rocket costs less than $100 while an Iron Dome antimissile is evaluated at $50,000 per unit.

Invariably, there would be more missiles than antimissiles. It is an intrinsic characteristic of this type of events and thus must be taken into account in the sampling.

Luckily enough, an event including 1,000 missiles can be easily analyzed using the entire event without recurring to statistical sampling techniques. Iron Dome has an operative 70% failure rate. My dear general, Iron Dome is a failure.” CONTINUED

I remember what a jump-master in paratrooper training said just before our first training jump:

"I want every one of you gentlemen to remember that each and every part of that parachute on your back went to the lowest bidder!!!!"

If *THEY* could get to Chuck freakin' Hagel in only a matter of a few weeks on the job -- and he was most outspoken critic & 'no' voter -- there may be no hope, afterall.

Darn you Trilateral Grove on Foreign Bilderberg Relations (which, to be fair, is just a fancy euphemism for a menage-a-trois between Henry Kissinger, Dakota Fanning & The Nobody), why can't you stop causing all worldly ills!

O' ye Christ-killers you done it again, first wooing Obama; then causing Gordon Duff to get 12 years behind on rent & utilities; and now insidiously cleverly charming the pants off of Hagel-pants!

for "his personal courtesies" and added that he has always appreciated Israel and its people noting his past trips to the country. "Israel is a model for the world," he said. "The relationship between the two countries is as strong as it's ever been. It is based on common values and respect for others."

"Hagel thanked Netanyahu for "his personal courtesies" and added that he has always appreciated Israel and its people noting his past trips to the country. "Israel is a model for the world," he said. "The relationship between the two countries is as strong as it's ever been. It is based on common values and respect for others."

"Model for the world"? Wow, noyse. That's just what Teddy Hertzl, Jabotinsky & Abba Eban had in mind! Thanks for coming around like that Mr. Hagel, I guess you had a crush on Israel all along and were pulling its tails out shyness to express such all-abiding love (much like a boy in elementary schools who has a thing for a girl but can't express other than violently, lulz)

Oh oh the Left ain' gonna like that. Shelley will be fuming; the Socialist-era remnant oligarchs, monopolies, labour unions will try to throw a hissyfit.

The sea port union-mafia is LONG overdue for a bust-up. No wonder so many powerful players, domestically and abroad, pulled out all stops in order to prevent Netanyahu from being elected in both 2009 and especially in 2013.

Apparently Haredi aren't too pleased either. Bibi could use Lapid as a human-shield, "hey Arieh, hey bearded fellas it's not me cutting your previous subsidies & Yeshiva budgets, it's Tommy's crusading little vainglorious bastard what can I do! Maybe next time give me more votes instead of Shas and UTJ, sorry. Some juju beans?"

Ok, let's keep it ever short & sweet, sports fans.

We all know that Israel doesn't have the huge resources of US, China, Russia or the oil-covered fat-ass Sunni Gulf degenerates (yet).

Especially during the aftermath of the Great Recession that cut into US/EU export markets, Israel has to really penny-pinch and be creative while developing weapons. Even most of American assistence is contractually obligated to be spent within the US to create American jobs. And even then it's dwarfed by what KSA, Qatar, UAE, Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait, Egypt get from the Uncle Sam annually.

So it's all the more impressive what IDF has recently, upwards & onward, no stopping the lil' glorious Zionist entiteh, eh? For such a tiny, formerly resource-strapped country, Israel does punch WAY above it's weight.

This is why Livni, Zahava Gal'on, Shelley Yachimovich not to mention the Muslims are biting their elbows, practically foaming at the mouth lately, trying to stone & molotov cocktail Jewish civilians where ever they could find them.... Bibi had presence of mind to launch a lot of classified underground projects & systems. The things public knows are obviously the new Cyber Command. While Izzy has been on the forefront of cyber tech, Stuxnet, Flame, Duqu, etc... suffice it to say, closing holes is a priority.

There is of course Jericho's...



Of course the Dolphins might just have something special for the Twelver Mullahs in Teheran, lulz

http://i-hls.com/2013/03/popeye-turbo-cruise-...

http://www.idf.il/1283-18533-en/Dover.aspx

And gee, what were those fancy EW thingie-majigs that allowed a certain *someone* to practically waltz into heavily-defended Syrian airspace to buzz Assad's palace in Damascus in 2006, take out NK-built nuke reactor in September 2007 and of course more recently the chemical WMD facility & Hezbollah weapons convoy in January.... guess we won't know for a while, plots thickens!

http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2012/09/17...

Then just in last 6 months:

-Iron Dome battled tested against HAMAS, Islamic Jihad, Salafist simultaneous barrages even though only 4 batterries had to do the job that 12-15 will eventually do... then in January underwent further improvements in order to be able to cope with heavier rockets like Fajr-5, Zelzal. Amazing considering this system was developed in less than 2 years, from scratch and only fielded in 2011.

http://www.upi.com/Business_News/Security-Ind...

-David's Sling first live hard-to-kill test.

http://www.youtube.com/watch...

-Arrow 2 (Block 4.1) presenting slew of improvements.

http://missilethreat.com/israels-arrow-missil...

-The Barak anti-ship cruise missile defense upgraded. Its successfor, Barak-8 jointly developed with Indian defense industries, is ready to be fielded this year.

-Now the groundbreaking Arrow-3 test? Hey-yo!

http://www.youtube.com/watch...

To quickly list the multi-layer features & systems

-Arrow 3 (upper tier, exo-atmospheric)
-Arrow 2 (middle-upper tier)
-PAC-3 + the older Arrow & David's Sling (middle tier)
-Patriot 2 (middle tier)
-new Iron Dome (lower tier & desperate last resort)
-original Iron Dome (lower tier, against light-weight stuff like Grad)

If that's not enough:

-Barak-8 (Barak-1, too, was just upgraded to provide the bridge to B-8)
-the SPYDER family
-3rd generation Hawk batteries

(defending against naval anti-ship missiles, slower/older cruise missiles, and aircraft...respectively.)

ATGM & RPG? Recent wars, incl 2nd Leb, Iraq, of course Syrian Civil War now show how dangerous assymetric weaponry can be. Look no further than Trophy already close to fielding 2.0 version and IMI's Iron Fist. No wonder Hamas wanted that ceasiefire so bad, their Iran-paid toys aren't nearly as effective. For a whole week Israeli armour stood parked on Gaza's border, and yet no jihadi dared to take even one shot at it from nearby building or village house? Uh-huh, Kornet & Metis-M have an effective kill range of over 5-miles, but I guess Gaza crazies weren't THAT crazy to challenge Trophy system!

http://www.israeldefense.com/...

Then you got C-MUSIC & J-MUSIC against MANPADS (during Operation Pillar of Defense Palestinian terrorists fired dozens of anti-aircraft missiles like RUssian Igla & older Strela. Zero downed Israeli aircraft, not even a slow drone despite all the hysterial lies & claims by Hamas propaganda, hahaha)

http://www.worldtribune.com/2013/01/18/israel...

Hezbollah too might want to start digging to China, last time they only lost 700-800 of their best fighters, but with Syria already bleeding them and no more Israeli Leftists like Amir Peretz, Ehud Olmert to take it easy on Hezzies ala 2006... Mercy!

Can't leave out the drones. Izzy has, like, 35 different TYPES of UV. Front tiny ones to Eitan the size of an older Boeing.

With all kind of, um, interesting payloads, natch :)

Quite active in nano & aerospace/satellite fields, too. Planning to land on the moon in 2015 or something.
