not really, but at least the New Iron Dome can intecept GRADs, which still is a small benefit, despite it... most of the shelling of the cities of Sderot, Beer-Sheva, Ashkelon and Ashdod are from small homemade rockets- the Qassams.
and even if we could intecept those, the differences between the price of a Qassam (0-50$) and a Iron Dome missile (120,000$)... you do the math.
and when will those Hammas people ever realise, if they want Gaza not to live under the wrath of Israeli Air retaliations, they better just stop shelling us.
on the same note, moments after the much reveared inteception, a Bus in the Negev was hit by an RPG and a 16 year old boy is in life threatening situation when srapnell hit his head and spine.
so much for 2 Billion$ project ensuring the safety of millions of people, all it requiers for Hammas is shift its focus... btw, is it true that the war in Afghanistan costs the US 15 billion$ a month?
