Report:  Israel to detect and attack Iranian missiles while still on the ground.  Sure, and AI have some Arizona beach front property for you, from a very gullible Times of Israel:

In the event that Iran attempts to fire missiles at Israel, Jerusalem will deploy giant drones stationed in neighboring Azerbaijan to destroy the missiles before they leave the ground, the London-based Sunday Times reported.

According to the report Sunday, an American-made X-band radar system deployed at the Nevatim airbase in the Negev “can detect an Iranian missile on its launchpad 1,000 miles to the northeast,” giving Israel up to 13 minutes of warning.

The report quoted an Israeli military source as saying “We’ll try to ‘kill’ them at the booster stage — the moment their engines are ignited.”

The detection range of a ground based radar of an object on the ground is under twelve miles. Radar is line of sight,and the Earth is curved.

    Ponder, if you will, “Star Wars”.  Reagan used the mere idea of such a weapon set, a few years ago, to get the Soviets to bankrupt themselves in weapons development against a weapon which did not as yet exist on our side.

    Ponder as well, the Iranians, who have been telling the world about the supposed “thousands” of centrafuges they’re employing.

    Ever see a cat puff himself up to appear larger to an adversary?
