The Threat to Israel from Precision-Guided Munitions

(Foreign Policy) John Hannah - Hizbullah's order of battle includes a growing number of precision-guided munitions (received courtesy of Iran) capable of accurately striking Israel's most critical targets. Uzi Rubin, former head of the Israel Missile Defense Organization and a preeminent missile expert, has a chilling presentation on the all but existential threat posed by precision-guided munitions to small states. Rubin uses Greece as an example, but it's obvious he's really talking about Israel. Rubin suggests there are roughly 30 facilities in all of Greece that allow modern society to function - systems for water, fuel, electricity, sea and air transport, and communications. Rubin makes the point that with fewer than 300 precision-guided munitions, an adversary could quickly make life unviable for Greece's 10 million citizens.
