    It's terrible to be in a place where one has to choose between those 100.000 Hezballah missiles (plus the ones Hamas, islamic Jihad, and Syria has) and the Iranian nuclear bomb. I don't think Meir Dagan is speaking up due to some political narcissism. Rather, he's speaking up out of concern. He certainly knows so much that we don't know. That doesn't render him infallible, of course, but at least, he deserves respect. My view is this: Heed Dagan, and get Iron Dome, Magic Wand and Arrow 3 fully operational and deployed. And do so all along the length and width of Israel, with enough batteries everywhere, and with IAF trained teams operating them, swiftly. Oh, and stop whining about the costs: it's heresy. Life has simply no cost to consider. After genocide, there is no economy that matters. If the anti-missile defense system is swiftly in place, deployed, operational and ready with its IAF-trained and competent teams on them, then we will be able to breathe in lighter, and will be able to discuss our options with Israel's allies and friends. Else, we will doubt, dispair and likely, err in judgement due to our sheer vulnerability.
