    ...that after all not really rockets. Americans can make such things at basic rocketry class, take a look at any run-of-the-mill hobby catalog... But let's look at the numbers. Israel claims "thousands" of rockets pouring down and wreaking havoc, and yet, out of those "thousands" of "rockets", hardly a one of them ever actually hits anything. Usually they land in scrubland, hitting no one and nothing but a barren piece of ground. I submit that the militants aiming of these rockets is far far better than anyone has yet admitted. Given the numbers, it is far more likely that if anyone got his by one of these "rockets", it was merely a stray. I don't think those rockets were ever aimed at civilians. Otherwise even with their crudeness, the militants would have had far more hits than just a few strays.
