#1 At last check, HAMAS has repor fired about 300 rockets at Tel Aviv and other Israeli targets, agz which Israel's IRON DOME BMDS has successfully intercepted about 80.

#2 I can't help thinking a 5MT blast over GAZA would take out a lot more than the 80 missiles Iron Dome did and in general be way more effective.

#3 Looks like Israel may take over the Gaza Egypt border. It's the only way to get a permanent solution. And there is already a 100 meter cleared strip along the border.

50 ton tanks rumbling along is going to put a stop to tunneling.

IIRC, Iron Dome isn't supposed to take out every missile it sees, it's supposed to take out missiles that seem to be headed for populated areas.
