Haaretz – According to a war simulation conducted by the U.S. Central Command, the Iranians could kill 200 Americans with a single missile response to an Israeli attack. The meaning of this U.S. scenario is that the blood of these 200 would be on Israel’s hands.
Pentagon spokesman George Little announced that the Defense Department would be seeking more money to help Israel fund the Iron Dome antimissile defense system.
The Iron Dome system successfully intercepted 80 percent of the rockets fired from Gaza this month, the Defense Department “intends to request an appropriate level of funding to support such acquisitions, based on Israeli requirements and production capacity.”
For all intents and purposes, it was an announcement that this war was being postponed until at least the spring of 2013.
Previously it was mentioned that Israel would like get the latest US bunker buster bombs in exchange for delaying the attack until after the US election.
