Something about being under assault from multiple groups who have sworn to destroy them if its the last thing they ever do might make Israel nervous like that.

Good for Israel. For some proactive planning.

Because Hillary will be at the Ford center drying out in the next few months.

Somebody has to step up .

Im Ok with this. Especially since we just gave the Muslime Bro's fighter jets. Got to level the playing field right, Barry?
 
2012-12-12 09:09:13 AM
They only wanted to buy 100 of the kits but got a wholesale price in quantities of 7,000 . They talked the supplier down to 6,900 units and still got a wholesale price on the lot.


Crafty.

Oh, JDAMs will level the playing field sure enough. And sometimes the school and a few houses as well.

JDAMs are the best option for suppressing enemy air defenses?

Sure. Keep smokin.

I don't see the problem with this. All of israels neihbors are pshyco. It's like having a nice house but it's built in a trailer park. Iran needs to burn anyway. The sooner the better.

6900 JDAMs is more than enough to wipe out every missile silo in the US, let alone a few facilities in Iran. It a little like instead of scooping the dog poop up, you firebomb the whole town to dispose of it.

No, you need it NOT to blow up that shack, but the other shack where they are building rockets, This shows Israel is working hard to minimize collateral damage.

So what you're saying is that Israel is gearing up to go to war, but won't until they take delivery of the weapons needed...Hhhhhmmmmmmmmmmm.........there might be a solution here.
 
2012-12-12 09:36:30 AM
If you want the self fulfilling prophecy of going out of your way to piss everyone in the neighborhood off and then claiming they're all out to get you in order to satisfy predictions made in your sacred text, then you need this kind of defense. Or you could just get some people skills and go on with you day.

2012-12-12 09:54:34 AM
Everybody could just leave each other alone, but they won't because the whole area is one big Hatfield-McCoy blood feud. Just like it's always been.
There is no real reason to keep the Palestinians in a ghetto, deny them citizenship, or build settlements, except as a big "Fark You". Same goes for lobbing rocks and bombs over the wall at the Jews.
It's all a bunch of "Your grandpappy wasn't nice to my grandpappy and now I'm going to take a giant shiat on you."

If the US were interested in peace, we'd guarantee the Palestinians statehood. Get the two separated and most of the problem is solved.

I wouldn't give a flying fig, except that my country (and my money) is being used to keep it all going.

Well, an ARM would be preferred; but if you want surprise there is this:

JDAM can be launched from approximately 15 miles from the target and each is independently targeted.

Tuck your F-15E up close under a scheduled commercial flight, drop JDAMS whenever you pass by an air defense site...problem soved.
 
2012-12-12 10:35:37 AM
So we "sold" them? Dont we provide tons of money to them for military spending?

oh almost 3 billion dollars a year

Wait, I thought Israel was all bootstrappy and stands on her own and all that.

And here go more American munitions to Israel to be dropped on brown people in the region.

JDAM is a guidance package, the bomb it's attached to is what matters. The bombs given to Israel are light bunker busters, not things that can dive down 100's of ft.

They tried that. They divided the country into israel for the jews, and jordan for the arabs. Result: War, and eventually the creation of the gaza and west bank areas for the arabs that stayed but didn't claim israeli citizenship.

After repeated attacks from those areas, the israelis marched in, turned these areas into virtual prisons, and were eventually convinced to give everything back, allow them to govern themselves, and pulled out their troops. Result: palestinian attacks increased, and strike deeper into israel than ever before, as they put all their launchers right on the border without israeli interference.

Basically, the issue isn't about land ownership, or even self governance, and if you think that, you're fooling yourself, and exposing an ignorance to history. The whole thing is about killing all the jews. Saying that giving them land or self governance is going to fix the problem is as intelligent as saying that the US government orchestrated 9/11. In both cases, the real cause is a bunch of irrational, pissed-off muslims.

In fact, the only time this land-for-peace thing has worked in that area is when the israelis took over and then gave back the Sinai peninsula to Egypt, and that's mostly because Egypt has enough to lose that they have to act like a real country.

That's what tends to happen when the other guy builds the schools right next to their military facilities.

You need to get some reality skills--namely, that the real cause of the war is the very existence of Israel. Thus there's nothing Israel can do to end it other than suicide.

The Palestinians have utterly broken every single major agreement they have made with Israel. Why in the world should we believe they'll keep the next one?

How about no?

JDAM kits are merely an inexpensive way to turn iron bombs into smart munitions. They're most commonly attached to Mk-80 series bombs which would be useless against hardened underground facilities. Since they're GPS guided, they're pretty useless against moving targets but superb against airfields, buildings, fixed AAA and SAM locations, etc.

If dropped from high enough, they've also got a respectable stand off range and they're fire and forget. Unlike a laser guided weapon, once a JDAM is released the launching platform can exit the area.

if you don't think the IAF already has deep ground penetrators, thermobaric missiles and bunker busters in their arsenal then you are totally clueless... LOL
They also have thousands of JDAM's already.. they just need more.. why 6,900 more? I have no idea!

i don;t see why a country would need say more than a couple hundred let alone over 10,000 JDAMs!!!
