The War in Israel

Israel's Iron Dome appears to be working very well. Far better, in fact, than I thought it would. The system appears more robust than I expected.

The Obama administration has been largely silent on the issue. To which I say, good. In my view, their silence gives Israel room to maneuver. I rather expected the left wingers to try and reign them in but I don't see that they have any leverage to use anyway. Their only misstep as far as I'm concerned is not being more publicly supportive in the face of Turkey calling them terrorist.

This problem is a neighborhood problem. We should support Israel in their efforts to beat back those who would wipe them out. We should not, however, do much beyond that. Israel is more than capable of handling things.
