Cracked Iron Dome
Reuven Pedatzur snipes at the PR folks basking in the success (in tests) of the Iron Dome System. I have no way of knowing who's right, but some of it seems hairsplitting. No-one ever said Iron Dome would stop all incoming Palestinian fire, and everyone knows it's an expensive system built to thwart cheap ones. The ultimate test of reality lies before us, in any case. Still, since I'm on record as thinking Iron Dome is a fine thing, it's only credible that I ought to link to a contrarian.
