From Roman Catapults to neolithic arrows, from nazi V 2's to Palestinian Qassams, world history can be followed by the development of the technology to hurl deadlier objects "higher, further and, stronger" paraphtrasing the Olympic ideals. Unfortunately, Israel is at the front-line of this generation's efforts both at killing the innocent with it (Iran, Syria, Hamas, Hezballah, et al) and the efforts at thwarting those hurlings (USA, Israel). Eventually, the apocalypse is averted and it is most probable that this won't be the exception.
