Israel’s Defense Against Iran Attack Overnight ‘Likely Cost Over $1 Billion’

It cost Israel more than $1bn to activate its defense systems that intercepted Iran’s massive drone and missile attack overnight,  according to a former financial adviser to Israel’s military. 

“The defence tonight was on the order of 4-5bn shekels [$1-1.3bn] per night,” estimated Brigadier General Reem Aminoach in an interview with Ynet news.

Aminoach highlighted that the staggering price tag stands in contrast to the relatively low amount that Iran had spent to launch its assault, which some estimates have put at less than 10 percent of what it cost Israel to stop the attack.

The cost to defend with high tech weaponry is the Achilles heel of modern day warfare for the west. We and our allies use the latest and most costly gizmos produced by Raytheon and other western aerospace manufacturers, while OPFOR (chose one from column B) mass-produce (at a tenth of the cost) weaponry on par with what the western arms supplies produce. For every 9 dollars the USA spends on high-tech gizmos--Russia spends just 1 and get the same bang for the buck (and it is the main reason they are now winning). Iran could expand this war should the IDF counter-attack (and they most likely will over react) and just the expansion would bankrupt Israel and the USA (should we get involved in depth).
The high-tech gizmos would be expended so incredibly fast, with such an enormous cost per pew-pew, that we’d be reduced to sling-shots, muzzle loading black-powder cannons and bankruptcy reorganization in a matter of weeks of a full scale regional war. Every missile that we at a cost of 3 to 5 million dollar a trigger pull just to shoot down a prop-driven drone, that costs less than a Ford F150, is major economic and military victory for Iran--regardless if the drone makes it to its target or not. The IDF is going to counter-attack within the next 2 days and they will most likely do some insane, massive ‘bad dog’ attack which will assuredly escalate this whole thing into a regional war.
And in a final note: Iran launched a salvo of hypersonic missiles into Israel--and all made it to their targets, those being a couple of IDF Airforce bases. Either Iron Dome and Patriot systems had spent their munitions--nor were they able to track and counter these hypersonics (which is most likely the case as seen in Ukraine lately).

cost over-runs and the markups are just a different way to say bribes.

By ‘bribes’ you must mean, the ‘juice.’ And they/them squeeze hard until they get it.

One unconfirmed source claimed Iran’s attack cost as little as $30M, while the number floated for the West’s interceptions is around $1B to $1.3B.

Yes--of course Uncle Sam. Israel is the best bunch of friends that money can buy… your tax money that is.

The day Uncle Sam is flat broke will be a good day, even though it is going to mean a lot of pain and suffering for us. The sooner he goes tango union, the sooner we can be free of his imperial ambitions and all that stems from that mindset espoused by the state dept.

The churning of the presses is called ‘new money theory’ FYI. They/them in charge could change the money system over night and make Post Toasties box tops ‘money.’ One day Biden get up on his dias (not podium) and hold up a Post box top and says dramatically… ‘this is money.’ --and know what, people are so stupid these days they go for it and work overtime to earn more. Mark Dice did a video a few years back in Venice CA--he offered people a 1oz bar of silver or a 1oz Hershey’s bar. Everyone took the Hershey’s bar. The defense rests your honor.

Keep send Israel the little gifts and soon they will run out of the “Iron Dome” sticks. The sooner that happens the sooner nut-in-you-hoo will be ousted.

Running out of the Iron Dome sticks is an easy thing to do BTW. All you have to do is make more cheap targets than defense sticks--overwhelm their systems with cheap stuff, then send in the big-fat-rockets.

Call me crazy, but this felt like the most contrived, choreographed “attack” I have ever seen.
“Hey Israel, Iran here. We’re going to attack you tomorrow. Just letting you know. We’re gonna send over our slowest drones first, then we’re gonna send some rockets. Remember, tomorrow, probably around midnight.”

After the attack…
“Hey Iran. Israel here. We’re gonna attack you back. Sometime in the next 48 hours. Just wanted to let you know.”

This is the most absurd, amateurish fake BS ever, and once again, Obama is behind it all. These people are infants.
