    "An engineer is someone who can do for a quarter what any fool can do for a dollar." - Anon. "The other problems have all been solved in principle and just need faster performance. Take Rafael`s word for it, and they have good track record." - Tosefta I understand Rafael's track record. I also have been watching people try and solve similar problems for a long, long, time. Iron Dome does not have to be a 100% effective system, but still if it's mere existence gives the enemy the opportunity to inflict a strategic casualty on Israel every time it fires a qassam then it is not an effective weapon except for the enemy. That is the ultimate problem Tosefta. Right now the chance of a qassam inflicting much cost upon Israel is very small. Most are wasted. If Israel ends up spending tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars to try and stop a qassam then suddenly the qassam is a powerful economic weapon against Israel.
