JERUSALEM — A new Israeli weapons system knocked down a Palestinian anti-tank rocket in its first combat test Tuesday, the military said, showing off technology that could protect the heavy vehicles that have been the mainstay of the world’s ground forces for decades.
Palestinian militants said they fired a rocket-propelled grenade at an Israeli tank as it patrolled near the Gaza-Israel border, a frequent occurrence.
This time, the “Trophy” system sensed the incoming rocket and fired its own projectile, blowing it up away from the tank, the military said.
Trophy is thought to be the only active defense system of its kind in the world.
As it should be.
NO need to share yer toys ISRAEL.
And while the brainless masses are busy fallin all over themselves heaping praise on Hussein Obama and his fellow weak kneed Western leaders for their powerlessness, inaction, and blind compliance with liberal Multi culti, “DON’T INSULT IZLAM” actions…Israel is gettin it done.
Western modern day leaders? Ha.
Naw. No one will dare interfere with what is essentially Libyan carnage.
No one dares insinuate that Egypt will NEVER be anything that resembles a “democracy”.
That Muzlim, Arab, rabid anti semites are not exactly exhibiting the omnipresent desire for “global peace” that the hippie Libs claim they are...Shhhhhhhhhh.
Have we unleashed one shred of TRUE military might since THIS?
Have we deported potential terrorists and their hateful, anti-semitic ilk?
Have we “patted down” any Muzlims at airports yet..or is that still on the “It’s too insulting to Izlam list”?
The frailty, timidity, and weakness of our so called “Leaders” is nothing short of embarassing.
Good on you ISRAEL.
Bomb those ahem..”militants” who blow up Americans in financial buildings, and babies in Israeli pizza shops and kindergarden playgrounds back to Never Never land.
Israel Sbarro victims:
Israel embodies democracy, human rights, and innovation, despite its neighborhood and despicable “neighbors.”
God bless America and Israel sweet friends…………….mightily.
