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...

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

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.

I guess that was also stolen from original Palestinian owners, huh?

I knew a pro-American/pro-Israeli, military-literate master-debater such as yourself would appreciate the info.

TRD probably would understand it, too. VOP, of course being an engineer. LWSJ used to like this stuff. Maybe even Uzi.

Now someone like our boy 'Eran Levi', on the other hand? I doubt Eran would get Yair Lapid's 'taint out of his mouth long enough to notice anything, at this point :)

lol, got Android?

Good to see noble, uber-peaceful Palestinian freedom-liberators are getting their ya-ya's out 25/8. They would die of boredom if not for Molotov's cocktails, big boulders, knives & Israeli cars!

Now think what would happen if Israel ever allows them to have their own army, control over long border esp. along Jordan where Muslim Bros are even more historiclly entrenched than in Egypt, believe it or not... as Leftists in Israel and outside would love to do.

Too bad for them, Bibi is not THAT crazy/cowardly. Dang, they must hate how last 2 elections have gone, ruined so many Catharine Ashton/Richard Falk plans, ooops!

"has", "don't has"... po-tay-to, po-tah-to

Embrace the mystery, world. In particular, let the Apocalyptic Ayatollahs anxiously bite the nails of their 8-year old blond & blue-eyed boy-cancubines while wondering how quickly their regime & military could be vaporized.

There is a forum outside this thread? Never knew that. Who has time for that shizzle anyway!

Hey Dubya is painting now??? LOL, what's next Cheney crosheing (sp?)? Then again if the easel & brush are good enough to diffuse Viviene Leigh & Tony Bennett's crazies, then maybe Dubya will get some theraputic effect, too.

In the interest of full disclosure, as a foreigner kid I didn't particularly like President Bush's face, mannerisms & style. I like to think it was because I was too young to know Zamboni from Kate Upton's 'dougie'.... but in retrospect, it probably had more to do with VIRULENT anti-Bush/American propaganda that was so widespread in the wake of OIF.

Suffice it to say, History if not greater public, are starting to VINDICATE the man. Slowly, but Shirley. Esp. with Arab Spring Muslim Sisterhood disaster; with Assad reveals a HUGE stock of chemical WMD some of which is undoubtedly Saddam; as North Korea is threatening nuke annihilation of freakin' mainland US! As Iran is starting to make trouble and Al-Qaeda getting brazen again to attack US targets. And of course with China trying to steal, reverse-engineer, gobble up or conquer everything that moves, before it even has their 1st indigenous Aircraft carrier or stealth jet, wait til they!

With novelty long worn off, Obama's anemic, borderline impeachable (if not outright treasonous) policies probably have something to do with said gradual vindication, well...

Nice to see some commentators never jumped off the bandwagon or bought into libtard MSM revisionist hype:
