Netanyahu Shoots Down Hezbollah Drones Over Israel

Tyler Durden's picture




 

It would seem things are going from worse to worserer as while US citizens prepare to see 30,000 drones over their own 'domestic' heads, Israel's Benjamin Natanyahu accuses Lebanon's Hezbollah of launching a previously unidentified drone (which has been shot down) over Israel last week. As the Globe and Mail reports (via AFP) -

"We are acting with determination to protect our borders," his office quoted him as saying during a visit to the frontier with Egypt.

 

"As we prevented last weekend an attempt by Hezbollah. We shall continue to act aggressively against all threats," Mr. Netanyahu said.

Israel might have done better to deploy an S-400 mobile system up there. Rumor is S-400 outperforms Patriot. Patriot was the hero weapon of the first gulf war shooting down many scud missiles. Only way after the war was it shown Patriot hit zero scuds. But they nailed a couple British fighter jets, knocked them clean out of the sky. So this system is not useless.

You can build a nice quad copter with a camera for under $300. A Patriot missile costs at least $1,000,000.

That makes the ratio about 3333:1.

They shot it down with an F16, probably used a sidewinder missile, I think they run around $100k each.

Not sure if the IAF even use Sidewinders any more, they have been using sucessive generations of their home-grown Python missiles for short and medium range air to air engagements since at least 1982.  As I understand it the most recent version of the USAF Sidewinder incorporated staring-array technology from the Python 5, a development of the Python 4 sensor, which was a development of the earlier US Stinger MANPAD staring-array IR homing sensor.

"Civilian" drones are ranging to 50k, here in Europe ... a couple of grand will buy that technology.

 

A few hundred pounds will get you out to 10k. .. all equipment, "off-the-shelf". Comparatively little operator' skill required, owing to the level of autostabilisation.

 

I seem to recall that in one of the Egypt/Israel disputes (Yom Kippur?) the Israelis used a fleet of "drones" to defeat the Egyptian Air Defence.  The Egyptians launched their SAMs at what they believed to be Israeli war planes. They weren't war planes, of course. The Israeli air force attacked whilst the Egyptians were re-loading their air defence missile systems.

 

Simple fixed-wing models, with cheapo radar-reflectors, might confuse the hell out of Israeli Air Defence. Such models would certainly demand a disproportionate response, so they'd be good value.

Hezbollah flew a drone along the northern Israeli coastline past Haifa during the war in 2006.  They have them and can use them, especially to find and pin-point to target naval units for engagement with coastal-launched antiship missiles, which they also used successfully to hit an Israeli warship in 2006.  There is a video on utube showing the attack, from the launch to hitting the ship.  Fast missile too, it only took a very short flight time to get out to the middle horizon and hit their frigate.  They also said several times in 2006 that they have missiles (not rockets) that can target and hit central Israel's major cities.  They most probably can do that.   What is for sure is that any drone overflight is not there for PR value, they are looking for targets.  Which indicates they have weapons that can hit them with precision at that range.

I propose we follow the United Nations lead and return North and South America to the native Americans! 

We can start by surrendering our armed forces and nuclear stockpile to the Indians.

That is probably the only way we will rid ourselves of the FRBNY. 

OH shit! I forgot we actually purchased Manhatten from the Indians so we can keep that part. So much for getting rid of the Fed!

If we ever did such a deed the Israelis would declare war on the Indians immediately.

Well ,to tell the truth,I thing the Native Americans got the better part of the deal.I don't think by this time they would insist on people limiting themselves to 16oz of soda.

So true!!!

That would make Bloomberg the leader on the United State of America?

What about the Louisianna Purchase???? We gave the French 4 million dollars for that piece of land.

I don't think it would count since the French stole it from the Indians.

City of God

To privileged church came rapidly for Christians, after the Great Persecution, when other religions were burned out. Constantine underwent a mysterious conversion experience. From then on, the imperial treasury provided funds for the building and extension of churches, the clergy enjoyed special privileges and exemptions. Intolerance of other religions became the norm. His adopted role was that of savior, to prepare humanity for the kingdom of God.

Funny, what happens when an empire gets sacked. The US runs at the pleasure of a majority of robots, women keeping passive aggressive men, as a buffer for capital against change coming from labor. Do you really think the rest of the world is going to accept Napoleon this time, or that labor is going to provide the US Navy with the technology required to enforce this rule of law? Try, try, try again.

Job Integrity

God has imprisoned everyone;

You are God’s slave;

Let no one split what God has put together;

Love is a mirror;

My yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is LIGHT;

If God doesn’t discipline you, it means you are illegitimate;

Let everything you do reflect the integrity and seriousness of your teaching;

Keep a clear mind in every situation;

Make it your goal to live a quiet life, minding your own business, working with your hands, and you will not need to depend on others;

Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the lord enthusiastically;

Those who use well what they are given, even more will be given;

When someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required;

The lord will deliver you from every evil;

…until I humble your enemies, our needs must come last.

(in other words, many hands makes light work)

 

Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? Why is life given to a man whose way is hidden, whom God has hedged in? Blessed is the man whom God corrects, For you will have a covenant with the stones of the field, and the wild animals will be at peace with you.

The faith, not the blood, of Abraham shakes the empire.

 

Wisdom 11:21

“God ORDERED all things by measure, number, weight”  “It is through reason that we are men.  For if we turned our backs on the amazing rational beauty of the universe we live in we should indeed deserve to be driven there from, like a guest unappreciative of the house into which he has been received.” “Science was forced to depart from the ancient ways of thinking by the Condemnation of 1277 at the University of Paris.  219 condemned propositions of Aristotle. This was the Birth of Modern Science.”” A true Revolution is to destroy completely the past and build upon it something new.  Since the Church is not only in the past but in all time, you must destroy the Church.”” Science in many ways replaced Faith and Man replaced God.”

Not sure why this hasn't crossed ZH yet, but, last week's surprising jobless claims figure was skewed optimistically due to one state's failure to report all claims, a Labor Department Spokesman confirmed today.  The suspected state is California which should fuel conspiracy claims.

IIRC, it was Ha-retz newspaper, that several years ago, published an image of OBL photo-shopped with the perfect representation of a Rabbi's black hat.  You'd swear OBL looks the Rabbi part more so than a real Rabbi. 

The point being, of course, that no one helps increase and expand the reach and pity for Rabbis like a good enemy of the God's allaged "chosenites"...the Rabbis got great mileage for about 60 years turning the Germans into scum of the day, now doing quite well adding "Islamo-terrorists" to the daily diet of hate...the German hate still gets good mileage (another neo-Nazis in Germany article on the news today, yawn) but it's always good to add to the bull pen!

Generally speaking I agree with most of the economic analysis postede on zerohedge, but whenever something pertains to Israel the inuendo in the main post and the fetid knee-jerk responses are quite disturbing.

 

Freaking Hezbollah has claimed responsibility. So all the inuendo is as usual just slanderous rumor to furhter some point of view that is inconsistent withthe general intellectual honesty of the economic analysis.

 

Or will all the maroons start saying Nasrallah is a Likud supporter now?

Riiiight. So is it alright the Palestinians have their borders back, on the West Bank?

Is it ok the Palestinians "act agressively" against threats to their territory?

You know 14 year old kids with catapults you call "terrorists" up against your 40 ton tanks

the Isreali State is so thick with hypocracy and arrogance is it any wonder they've few friends left in the world, and those few Govts are as equally deluded and deranged

rob, that's a good one!  

Friendly disagreement with my best friend yesterday: 

In publicly shouting down a Rabbinical Talmudist to his face yesterday, who masquerades as a so-called "Christian evangelist" (this racist, disgusting, bigotted, putrid scum claims with straight face as a "fact" that he has Abraham's blood in his veins, and this makes him God's "elect" chosenite...saved by "race" not grace), I declared loudly among the public audience that if God would only cause the oceans to swallow the USA and turn the USA into liquified mush today, the world would instantly be a safer place for the rest of humanity. 

Friend rightly called me on this, because, of course, I have no proof the world would be safer.  Friend says that if a vacuum existed, and we were gone, said vacuum would be filled by a worse operator even than ourselves.  

Personally, I doubt it.  How many air craft carriers do we have carrying hell and death around the world vs. the country rating second in this category?   How many nuclear weapons do we have circling the world vs. the country rating second in this category.

C'mon, do the math, give me a break, friend! 

The lying Rabbinical Talmudist had a friend I'll call X present who describes them both as "holy men of God."  This same X thinks followers of the way (Christ) can be paid by the King to carry weapons in war and the police to enforce the King's will.  To make my point, I ask this stupid foolish person who says he studies the Bible and did not know who killed Christ, I ask him about an alleged "Christian" B52 pilot who the King orders to drop a few million megatons of Satanic death ("those who hate me love death") on oh, about 6-10 million human beings including babies suckling their mother's breast.  

I ask him to remember what did Jesus say about hurting a child?  What is this person's spiritual fate?  "He who harms one of these little ones, it is better for a mill stone to be tied around his neck and tossed into the sea."  I kindly suggest he read Sebastian Junger's "The Perfect Storm" to get a taste of the forensic description of drowning, to better understand the gravity of Jesus' warning.

Seems like Hezbollah admitted to it themselves, and indeed this is another example of Israeli intelligence failing miserably: they had no idea whose it was (even days later), until Hezbollah explained everything. 

 

Israel got badly punished in 2006 for grossly underestimating and misunderstanding Hezbollah's firepower and abilities, and they still today have practically no idea what they will have to contend with.  Hezbollah's sending an Iranian-built drone 30 mins into Israel is HUGE, especially from the angle of psychological warfare.

 

The warmongering Israeli psychopaths are shitting themselves: they can't have a repeat of 2006 (it was so bad that countless Israeli soldiers started refusing orders and gladly went to jail for 2-4 weeks, to say nothing of public opinion regarding all the deaths).  They viciously dropped all the bombs they had (+ a bunch of extra, express-delivered US bombs), and it made no difference...  Their air superiority meant nothing then - how much is it worth now?
