    Largest joint US-Israel missile defense drill ... JPost - Defense

    US military forces have begun arriving in Israel to take part in the largest joint
    missile defense exercise of its kind, which will begin next week.

    One thousand American soldiers will arrive on Israeli territory, and a further 2,000 US troops in Europe and the United States will take part via remote defense computing systems. An equal number of Israeli soldiers will be involved.

    During the drill, named Austere Challenge 12, Israeli air defense systems, such as the Iron Dome anti-rocket shield and Arrow 2 anti-ballistic missile batteries, will be deployed, as well as US and Israeli Patriot batteries. American naval ships carrying the Aegis combat system, which can intercept missiles, will take part, and at least one US Navy ship will dock at Haifa.

    The IDF and the US military's European Command will set up missile defense batteries across Israel. Most of the drill will involve computer simulations of incoming rockets, though in the last stage, a Patriot will be fired at a mock enemy projectile.

    "Anyone can take away any message they want from this," said the IDF's Brig-Gen. Nitzan Nuriel, who is heading the Israeli side of the exercise. "The fact that we are working together is a strong message by itself," he added.

    Nuriel defined a successful program as "the interception of all incoming missiles to reduce damage to Israeli infrastructure."

    Air Force Lt. Gen. Craig Franklin, US Third Air Force Commander and the senior American commander in Israel for the exercise, said Washington will be spending 30 million dollars on the drill. Nuriel said Israel would be spending the same amount.

    Joint Military Drill Boosts Israel's Confidence - Defense/Security - News - Israel National News

    As part of the joint exercise, 1,000 American soldiers arrived in Israel last week, and were joined by a number of U.S. Navy ships, which arrived Tuesday carrying Patriot missiles and other missile batteries. The exercise, which will last about a month, is designed to strengthen cooperation between the two countries with regard to missile defense, an exercise which, it has been speculated, might be preparation for a possible military strike against Iran.

    Defense officials said that the widespread collaboration will be beneficial to both countries, as Israel plans on studying American ships capable of intercepting missiles and Americans get the opportunity to learn from Israeli ground-based missile-defense radars "Green Pine" and "Super Green Pine."

    Israeli defense officials took pride in the joint drill and were appreciative of the onthe-spot improvements such drills often provide.

    Thats right Obama, stay the hell out of Isreal's war mongering. If Israel wanted peace which they have not had for 6 thousand years is to give back the land they stole from the Palistinians after killing many of the innocent men, women and children.
    Stay the hell out of it. Period.

    Gaza is the worlds largest prison. Isreal gave it to them so they could keep them contained. Hamas and Hezbollah came in from the coast with aid because the Palistians could not get pass Israeli security. Fuck Israel.
