Iron Dome, Pillar of Cloud, and Netanyahu's Next War by Roi Tov ~ link ~ Take the time to read this one in full at the link.   Stirling     
 
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.

Netanyahu’s Next War
Eventually, Operation Pillar of Cloud looks like a distraction event. It allowed Israel to test Iron Dome in real time. The IDF generals can analyze data as well as I can, even if they publish misinformation afterwards. 30% Interception may be good enough to defend Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, especially after most of the Palestinian long-range rocket arsenal was destroyed. The IDF will shoot three or four antimissiles at every rocket aimed at these targets. That was the number the IDF needed to know. The recruitment event was an exercise. The IDF knows now how many of its reservists are ready to appear and fight. This has been a problematic issue since the Yom Kippur War. Unluckily, this data won’t be disclosed.

Benjamin Netanyahu has been Prime Minister for a long time. He was aware that unless he obtained a decisive ground victory over Hamas, he would be perceived as a loser by his fanatic electorate. Hence, Operation Pillar of Cloud cannot be the real event allowing him to win the upcoming elections. Cloud of Pillar was a provocation, aimed at forcing Hamas to attack. Then, Netanyahu will be ready to perform a ground attack in better conditions. War is still ahead of us.
 





Middle East is in high suspense for Gaza War sequels ~ link ~ I suspect that it will be very early 2013 before all hell breaks loose.  Stirling    
 
Saturday, Nov. 17, America acted to shore up its naval and Marine forces in the region. Washington gave its approval for NATO to post Patriot anti-missile batteries in Turkey opposite the Syrian border together with advanced AWACs electronic warning aircraft. Both weapons systems are to be manned by US military crews. Next, the USS Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group took up position opposite the Israeli and Syrian shores, adding another section to the menacing ring forming around Syria.
 
Moscow, Iran and Damascus, for their part, decided that the same coalition that laid a trail of disaster for its allies in the Gaza Strip, Hamas and Jihad Islami, were now about to pounce on Iran’s best friend, Bashar Assad, by moves to enforce protected asylums and no-fly zones in Syria.



The Limits of the Israeli Empire ~ link ~ Do take the time to read this one in full at the link.   Stirling     
 
I have felt for some time that Israel’s Empire has reached its limits. Israel cannot take on Lebanon. They cannot even take on Gaza because it seems the Gazans got some of the missiles that went missing from Libya. Iran, Syria and Hezbollah have more than 150,000 missiles which will flatten Israel if the Jews decide to escalate their psychological confrontation with Iran over that non-existent Iranian nuclear weapons program. The Israeli military has concluded that they cannot attack Iran except as part of World War III. A Global Thermonuclear war is one of their options.

The other limit is in public opinion. The Jews of America allowed the Israelis to kill 3,000 Americans on 911. An earlier generation of American Jews allowed the Israelis kill President Kennedy who opposed Ben Gurion’s acquisition of nuclear weapons. They also wanted America to lose the Vietnam war and  get Americans hooked on drugs as their ancestors had done to the Chinese in the Opium Wars.

The knowledge that Israel did 911 is spreading at the same time Americans are finally beginning to realize that their savings, pensions and paychecks have been stolen. The dumbest will figure this out when hyperinflation wipes them out over the next few months. That combined with the atrocities that Jews of Israel must commit because it is inherent in their nature to treat Gentiles as if they were not human.



America cancels Mid East Conference on Nuke-Free Zone ~ link ~ It appears that not everyone is willing to ignore the '5,000 pound elephant in the living room', the many hundreds of nuclear weapons that Israel has.  Stirling     

The US has called off a major international conference on establishing a nuclear weapons-free zone (NWFZ) in the Middle East, claiming turmoil in the region prevents action on the issue. 

The real reason, of course, that the US canceled the conference is because Israel – the only country in the Middle East with nuclear weapons – refuses to give up its regional monopoly on nukes. 



Israel developing next-generation anti-missile system with help from Raytheon ~ link ~ Unlike the homemade, rudimentary rockets used by Hamas, thousands of sophisticated missiles with greater ranges and payloads are being stockpiled in Lebanon by Hezbollah, another militant group. Israel’s leaders, who consider these weapons and longer-range missiles from Iran potential threats, have turned to engineers from Waltham-based Raytheon Co. to help develop the next-generation interceptor missile.

A critical test of the system, called the Stunner, is set for Israel’s Negev Desert in coming days.



Who are the terrorists now? ~ link ~ First, the courage and resilience of the Palestinians in Gaza has won the hearts and minds of the world. In Stephen Lendman’s words, “we’re all Gazans now”.

The Hamas government, which has been forced to operate under impossible conditions ever since it was elected in 2006, earns grudging admiration and can hold its head high. Hated in the West because they are not for sale, Hamas should be accepted as a key player in the diplomatic process from now on.

Israel comes out of it smelling even worse than before and is now universally despised. It has shown itself to be the ultimate terror state and should be booted out of the United Nations.



Hezbollah: Thousands of missiles to hit Tel Aviv if Israel attacks Lebanon ~ link ~ Hezbollah Secretary General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah has warned the Israeli regime that thousands of missiles will target Tel Aviv if it dares to wage a war on Lebanon.

“Israel which was shaken with few Fajr-5 missiles… We want to say that what Israel would do with thousands of missiles which will land in Tel Aviv and other areas if it attacks Lebanon,” Nasrallah said in an address to the mourning ceremonies of the Day of Ashura in Beirut on Sunday.



Israel may launch strike at ship allegedly carrying Iranian rockets to Gaza ~ link ~ Israeli spy satellites spotted a cargo vessel in the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas that was allegedly Gaza-bound and carrying arms, the Sunday Times reported. “Regardless of the ceasefire agreement, we will attack and destroy any shipment of arms to Gaza once we have spotted it,” an Israeli defense official told the newspaper.

The vessel reportedly began its voyage last week just as Israel and Hamas agreed to a ceasefire ending eight days of violence in Gaza, in which over 150 Palestinians died. The cargo is believed to include Fajr-5 rockets, similar to those used by Hamas in the conflict, and Shahab-3 ballistic missiles. The ship is set to travel through the Red Sea, Sudan and Egypt, according to the Sunday Times report. The newspaper also cited Israeli officials speculating that Iran could be moving longer-range ballistic missiles into Sudan, which could be aimed at Israel from the African country.



Russia sends warships to Gaza coast ~ link ~ Do check out the photo of the Moskva Battle Cruiser.  Stirling   

For the entire 8 day duration of Operation Pillar of Defense, there was one major geopolitical player who had been largely quiet and certainly absent from the scene: the same player whose unflinching position over the Syria conflict has so far prevented any intervention in the civil war torn country: Russia. The same Russia which has a military base in the Syrian port city of Tarsus, and thus in its own eyes, a very substantial "national interest" role to play in the middle east, one that is certainly opposing that of the US and the pro-NATO forces, a tension that will surely boil to the surface now that war between Iran and Israel is always at most "hours away" depending on who is asked, and which one day will be more than just a war of words. Today, Russia decided that it had kept quiet for too long over the Gaza conflict, with Voice of Russia reporting, courtesy of Al Arabiya, that Russian warships anchored off the eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea will be put on military alertness should the conflict in Gaza escalate and brought in proximity, according Russian Navy Command source on Friday.

Sure enough, there is a diplomatic reason for the escalation: evacuation preparedness. To wit: "The detachment of combat ships of the Black Sea Fleet, including the Guards missile cruiser Moskva, the patrol ship Smetliviy, large landing ships Novocherkassk and Saratov, the sea tug MB-304 and the big sea tanker Ivan Bubnov, got the order to remain in the designated area of the Eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea for a possible evacuation of Russian citizens from the area of the Gaza strip in case of escalation of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict”, the spokesperson said. He added that ship crew members will continue routine combat training, maintenance of equipment and weapons along with other military services.

A missile cruiser, which just happens to be the flag ship of the Russian Black Sea naval fleet, and whose purpose is "to destroy hostile surface ships" in order to aid evacuation? Odd...

 
USS John C Stennis battle group returning to Gulf ~ link ~ When the aircraft carrier USS John C Stennis returns to the placid blue waters of the Gulf with her strike force of 70 jets in the next few days, she will be ready for action off the coast of Iran.

The flagship $4.5 billion carrier, a 100,000 ton floating city with a crew of 5,000, was despatched four months earlier than planned to bolster the United States Navy's already formidable force in the region, the Fifth Fleet. 
 
 
 
Despite Israeli violations, ceasefire continues to stand ~ link 
 
 
 
Egypt denies plans to deploy US troops in Sinai ~ link ~ The Egyptian Armed Forces denied Israeli news reports about plans to deploy US forces in Sinai as part of a ceasefire agreement reached between Palestinian movement Hamas and Israel.

On Facebook, Armed Forces spokesman Colonel Ahmed Ali said the Armed Forces would never accept the presence of foreign bases on Egyptian soil.



Israel's shame: Children, the true victims ~ link ~ Israel, after all these years, still has not declared its national boundaries.   It still covets its neighbors' lands.  This is the root of all the violence.  Israeli uses its supporters to bribe and blackmail the political class in the Western nations and controls the news and entertainment media.  Stirling     

The rockets slammed in, two in succession, just after 11.30 at night. When Huda Tawfil had shaken herself awake through the confusion and terror, her first thoughts were for her baby. Seeing what she did through the smoke and flames, she burst into tears.


The 20-year-old started digging through the rubble with her hands as other members of the family ran into the room and joined in. She then cradled her little girl on the way to hospital in her husband's car. There was an emergency operation, but the injuries from the shrapnel proved to be too severe.



Syrian "rebels" capture three military bases in a week ~ link ~ When and if, the West gets too close to toppling Syria, all Hell will break out and globally!!!  Stirling
