Missiles Don't Win Wars

[Ynet News] Guy Bechor - Our enemies are arming themselves with missiles all around us. More than these missiles are designed to be used, their aim is propaganda, deterrence, and to weaken our public. These missiles are a crime against humanity in every way, as they are being directed only at Israeli civilians. The military capabilities of Syria, Iran, Hamas, and Hizbullah are not highly developed. They arm themselves with missiles because then there is seemingly no need for tanks or advanced aircraft. However, missiles cannot decide wars. They are scary and they make for good photos, but no war has been decided only by missiles. Wars are decided by tanks, airplanes, and soldiers.
