    Default Israel deploys new rocket defense system against Gaza

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110327/...rocket_defense

    Israel deployed a cutting-edge rocket defense system on Sunday, rolling out the latest tool in its arsenal to stop a recent spike in attacks from the neighboring Gaza Strip. Israel hopes the homegrown Iron Dome system will provide increased security to its citizens, but officials warned that it can't do the job alone. The system went into operation shortly after an Israeli aircraft struck a group of militants in Gaza, killing two. Israeli said they were about to fire a rocket.
    The Iron Dome system has raised hopes that Israel has finally found a solution to the years of rocket fire from Gaza. The primitive rockets have evaded Israel's high-tech weaponry, in part because their short flight path, just a few seconds, makes them hard to track....
    Uzi Rubin, an Israeli missile defense expert, said the system is bound to suffer initial malfunctions as operators learn how to use it.
    "Unfortunately, Israel is writing the book," Rubin said. "That includes doing some things right and sometimes making some mistakes."



    This ADS uses a high speed missile to shoot down a rocket. And I'm not disputing Israel's right to defend itself as it sees fit, but I foresee some misses and/or some hits going down in PA territory, (i.e. a mosque/school/hospital) escalating the exchanges and ratcheting up pressure from the pro-Palestinian UN due to "unacceptable collateral civilian damage."
    The Arab Muslim world is in disarray right now but an "Israeli atrocity" coud focus things in a hurry.

    Another "no win" situation.
