Pentagon Pledges $429 Million More for Israel’s ‘Iron Dome’ System

• http://news.antiwar.com, by Jason Ditz
In a move that comes seemingly a couple of times a year, the Pentagon has once again transferred a large sum of money to Israel to pay for the nation’s “Iron Dome” system. $429 million was transferred “immediately” upon announcement of the deal.The funding was cheered by Israeli officials, who have touted the missiles as a “game-changer” for the Israeli military, though their actual effectiveness is very much in doubt.
The Iron Dome is designed as an extremely short-range missile defense system, meant for shooting down the non-guided makeshift missiles that are often fired from Gaza.
MIT missile expert Dr. Theodore Postol says Israel’s claims of effectiveness are almost certainly a myth, and that there is no physical way the missiles could hit 84 percent of rockets, as claimed by Israel.
