Iron Dome is a decent tactical weapon suitable for defending only the most valuable of targets. If the Palestinians have a clue about destroying Israel they will feed Iron Dome an endless parade of $100 targets to be destroyed by Tamir missiles costing $50,000 each. Worse than that, the average Qassam fired from Gaza has a flight time of 14 seconds, while Iron Dome takes 15 seconds to detect, classify, predict the trajectory of the incoming round, and then fire a Tamir interceptor. Which is to say that Iron Dome may be used by the Palestinians as a magnificent way of bankrupting Israel on the cheap. No doubt this post will be [CENSORED] because it speaks the awful truth.
