+ - Could Israel's " Iron Dome " Make the Case for a Missile Defense Shield? ->

Submitted by scrivenlking
scrivenlking writes: The last few days have been extraordinary in the Middle East to say the least. Israel was attacked by a barrage of missiles fired from Gaza. However, nearly all of those missiles were defeated by Israel's missile defense shield known as "Iron Dome". Missile defense systems are nothing new and we've seen them work in a variety of theaters of operation. Most recently, they were highly effective during the United States' invasion of Iraq where Patriot missile batteries went toe-to-toe with Scud missile launchers.
