  • IRAN'S NUCLEARWEAPONS PROGRAM.
  • 00:01:37.798 --> 00:01:40.334
  • AS A RESULT, THE U.S.
  • 00:01:40.334 --> 00:01:42.403
  • ISRAELI MILITARIES HAVEBEEN ON HIGH ALERT AND HAVE
  • 00:01:42.403 --> 00:01:45.072
  • WARNED IRAN OF SERIOUSCONSEQUENCES IF IT ATTEMPTS

  • 00:01:48.309 --> 00:01:51.779
  • BOTH THE U.S.
  • 00:01:51.779 --> 00:01:53.314

  • U.S.S. NEMITZ AIRCRAFT CARRIERREMAINS IN THE REGION.
  • 00:02:07.394 --> 00:02:11.499
  • NUMBER THREE, IRAN ISSENDING MESSAGES OF ITS OWN.
  • 00:02:11.499 --> 00:02:14.835
  • THE IRANIANS HAVE RECENTLYCONDUCTED MAJOR MILITARY
  • 00:02:14.835 --> 00:02:17.771
  • DRILLS INVOLVING ATTACKDRONES, LONG-RANGE MISSILES
  • 00:02:17.771 --> 00:02:21.275
  • AND WARSHIPS.
  • 00:02:21.275 --> 00:02:22.810
  • LASTLY, PERHAPS MOSTIMPORTANTLY, IRAN IS
  • 00:02:22.810 --> 00:02:25.746
  • ENRICHING URANIUM AS A RAPIDCLIP AND SPEEDING UP ITS
  • 00:02:25.746 --> 00:02:29.016
  • MARCH TO A NUCLEAR BOMB.
  • 00:02:29.016 --> 00:02:31.118
  • AT THE SAME TIME, THE BIDENADMINISTRATION WANTS TO
  • 00:02:31.118 --> 00:02:33.621
  • RE-ENTER THE IRANNUCLEAR DEAL WHICH PRESIDENT
  • 00:02:33.621 --> 00:02:36.924
  • TRUMP PULLED AMERICAOUT OF IN 2018.
  • 00:02:36.924 --> 00:02:39.860
  • SO MUCH IS HAPPENING IN THEWORLD' MOST PIVOTAL CHAOTIC
  • 00:02:39.860 --> 00:02:43.130
  • REGION THAT WE TURN NOW TOISRAELI INTELLIGENCE ANALYST
  • 00:02:43.130 --> 00:02:46.100
  • AVI MELAMED WHO BREAKS
  • 00:02:46.100 --> 00:02:47.801
  • DOWN ALL OF THESEEVENTS AND WHAT COMES NEXT.
  • 00:02:47.801 --> 00:02:50.971
  • TAKE A LOOK.
  • 00:02:50.971 --> 00:02:53.240
  • - IRAN TALKING ABOUTREVENGE FOR THE DEATHS OF
  • 00:02:53.240 --> 00:02:55.743
  • QUASSEM SOLIEMANI ANDMOHSEN FAKHRIZADEH,
  • 00:02:55.743 --> 00:02:59.213
  • WHAT IS THE LATEST?
  • 00:02:59.213 --> 00:03:00.714
  • DO YOU SEE THE IRANIAN REGIMETRYING TO RETALIATE FOR THE
  • 00:03:00.714 --> 00:03:04.718
  • DEATHS OF THOSE TWO CRUCIALFIGURES IN THEIR REGIME?
  • 00:03:04.718 --> 00:03:08.923
  • - IF THEY ARE GOING TORETALIATE OR TAKE REVENGE,
  • 00:03:08.923 --> 00:03:13.427
  • IT HAS TO BE SOMETHINGSIGNIFICANT AND POWERFUL ENOUGH.
  • 00:03:13.427 --> 00:03:16.864
  • I PUBLISHED A COUPLE OFWEEKS AGO AN ARTICLE
  • 00:03:16.864 --> 00:03:19.967
  • ANALYZING THE DIFFERENT INSAND OUTS FROM AN IRANIAN
  • 00:03:19.967 --> 00:03:22.303
  • PERSPECTIVE, AND I ACTUALLYSAID, LOOK, THEY HAVE
  • 00:03:22.303 --> 00:03:25.339
  • DIFFERENT PLETHORASDIFFERENT MEANS RETALIATE.
  • 00:03:25.339 --> 00:03:29.843
  • I WAS TALKING ABOUT THEDIFFERENT CAPACITIES, BUT MY
  • 00:03:29.843 --> 00:03:34.081
  • CONCLUSION WAS THAT WHENYOU TAKE ALL OF THESE
  • 00:03:34.081 --> 00:03:38.052
  • INGREDIENTS, AND YOU PUTTHEM IN THE BLENDER, SO TO
  • 00:03:38.052 --> 00:03:41.388
  • SPEAK, I SAID I THINK THATTHE IRANIANS MORE LIKELY
  • 00:03:41.388 --> 00:03:45.426
  • WILL TRY TO GO IN ONE OF THETWO FOLLOWING DIRECTIONS.
  • 00:03:45.426 --> 00:03:48.662
  • ONE IS THE ISSUE OF CYBERATTACK, WHICH THE IRANIANS
  • 00:03:48.662 --> 00:03:52.566
  • HAS CAPACITIES.
  • 00:03:52.566 --> 00:03:54.468
  • DOING CYBER ATTACK IS ONTHE ONE HAND CAN CAUSE
  • 00:03:54.468 --> 00:03:57.571
  • SUBSTANTIAL DAMAGE IF IT'SSUCCESSFUL, BUT ALSO IT CAN,
  • 00:03:57.571 --> 00:04:01.976
  • IN A WAY, PROVIDE IRANIANIMMUNITY BECAUSE IF THERE IS
  • 00:04:01.976 --> 00:04:07.314
  • GOING TO BE A COUNTER CYBERATTACK, THE IRANIANS COULD
  • 00:04:07.314 --> 00:04:09.917
  • ALWAYS IN A WAY DENY THATAND SO THEY WOULD
  • 00:04:09.917 --> 00:04:13.554
  • KEEP THEIR FACE.
  • 00:04:13.554 --> 00:04:15.356
  • WE SHOULD PAY ATTENTION TOTHE FACT THAT IRAN ACTUALLY
  • 00:04:15.356 --> 00:04:18.993
  • HAS AN OPERATIONALCOOPERATION WITH SUNNI
  • 00:04:18.993 --> 00:04:22.663
  • MILITANT ISLAMICORGANIZATION LIKE AL QUAEDA.
  • 00:04:22.663 --> 00:04:26.367
  • AND YOU MAY REMEMBER ACOUPLE OF MONTHS AGO, A
  • 00:04:26.367 --> 00:04:29.236
  • SENIOR AL QUAEDA MEMBER, THESECOND ONE IN COMMAND, WAS
  • 00:04:29.236 --> 00:04:31.939
  • ELIMINATED IN TEHRAN.
  • 00:04:31.939 --> 00:04:34.742
  • THIS IS NOT SOMETHING NEW.
  • 00:04:34.742 --> 00:04:36.610
  • THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEENIRAN AND AL QUAEDA IS
  • 00:04:36.610 --> 00:04:39.013
  • WELL-KNOWN FOR THEINTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY
  • 00:04:39.013 --> 00:04:40.781
  • FOR A LONG TIME.
  • 00:04:40.781 --> 00:04:42.516
  • - SECRETARY OF STATE MIKEPOMPEO, THE FORMER SECRETARY
  • 00:04:42.516 --> 00:04:44.485
  • OF STATE NOW, GAVE ASPEECH, BEFORE THE TRUMP
  • 00:04:44.485 --> 00:04:47.321
  • ADMINISTRATION LEFT OFFICE,OUTLINING THAT IRAN-AL
  • 00:04:47.321 --> 00:04:51.225
  • QUAEDA RELATIONSHIP, WHICHIS APPARENTLY
  • 00:04:51.225 --> 00:04:52.993
  • GROWING PRETTY STRONG.
  • 00:04:52.993 --> 00:04:54.628
  • - THE IRANIANS HAS THEABILITY TO USE AL QUAEDA
  • 00:04:54.628 --> 00:04:58.866
  • AS A SUBCONTRACTORTO TAKE REVENGE.
  • 00:04:58.866 --> 00:05:03.103
  • AND IN THAT SENSE, FROM ANIRANIAN PERSPECTIVE,
  • 00:05:03.103 --> 00:05:06.373
  • I CAN SEE ONLY BENEFITS.
  • 00:05:06.373 --> 00:05:09.643
  • IT CAN BE A BIGONE, A BIG ATTACK.
  • 00:05:09.643 --> 00:05:12.579
  • IT CAN BE ONE THAT WILLECHO FROM SIDE TO SIDE.
  • 00:05:12.579 --> 00:05:15.282
  • THE IRANIAN WILL BE TOTALLYIMMUNE BECAUSE EVERYBODY
  • 00:05:15.282 --> 00:05:19.253
  • WILL SAY, OH, NO, IT'S NOTTHE IRANIANS BECAUSE IT'S
  • 00:05:19.253 --> 00:05:21.622
  • SUNNI AL QUAEDA, ANDEVERYBODY KNOWS THAT SUNNIS
  • 00:05:21.622 --> 00:05:24.892
  • AND SHIITES HATE EACHOTHER'S GUTS,
  • 00:05:24.892 --> 00:05:27.294
  • WHICH IS QUITE CORRECT.
  • 00:05:27.294 --> 00:05:28.862
  • BUT IN THE CASE OF AL QUAEDAAND IRAN, IT'S ONLY
  • 00:05:28.862 --> 00:05:31.298
  • PART OF THE STORY.
  • 00:05:31.298 --> 00:05:33.033
  • AND ACTUALLY, THIS IS A PATHTHAT I WOULD SAY, WHEN I'M
  • 00:05:33.033 --> 00:05:37.971
  • TRYING TO THINK FROM ANIRANIAN PERSPECTIVE,
  • 00:05:37.971 --> 00:05:40.641
  • THIS IS A PATH THAT IWOULD NOT RULE OUT.
  • 00:05:40.641 --> 00:05:43.544
  • AND ONE LAST THING IN THATCONTEXT REMINDING OURSELVES,
  • 00:05:43.544 --> 00:05:46.513
  • THE IRANIANS AREMARATHON RUNNERS.
  • 00:05:46.513 --> 00:05:49.850
  • THE LEADER OFHEZBOLLAH, NASRALLAH, SAID
  • 00:05:49.850 --> 00:05:53.253
  • THE OTHER DAY WE WILLTAKE THE REVENGE.
  • 00:05:53.253 --> 00:05:55.923
  • IRAN WILL TAKE THE REVENGEIN THE RIGHT TIME AND IN THE
  • 00:05:55.923 --> 00:05:58.392
  • RIGHT CIRCUMSTANCES.
  • 00:05:58.392 --> 00:06:00.427
  • WE HAVE TO TAKE INTOCONSIDERATION IT COULD BE
  • 00:06:00.427 --> 00:06:03.163
  • SOMETHING THAT THE IRANIANSARE BREWING FOR A LONG
  • 00:06:03.163 --> 00:06:06.367
  • PERIOD OF TIME, AND WESHOULD TAKE IT VERY SERIOUSLY.
  • 00:06:06.367 --> 00:06:10.104
  • - SPEAKING OF IRAN'SPROXIES AND VARIOUS WAYS IN
  • 00:06:10.104 --> 00:06:14.007
  • WHICH THEY COULD, GODFORBID, ATTACK ISRAEL OR
  • 00:06:14.007 --> 00:06:17.411
  • U.S. INTERESTS IN THE REGION,THE HOUTHIS IN
  • 00:06:17.411 --> 00:06:19.646
  • YEMEN, AND ALSO THESE RADICALSHIA MILITIAS IN IRAQ.
  • 00:06:19.646 --> 00:06:24.251
  • NOW, ISRAEL DEFENSE FORCES HAVEEXPRESSED A LOT OF CONCERNS
  • 00:06:24.251 --> 00:06:27.087
  • ABOUT POTENTIAL ATTACKSCOMING FROM THOSE IRANIAN
  • 00:06:27.087 --> 00:06:30.791
  • PROXIES IN YEMEN AND IRAQ.
  • 00:06:30.791 --> 00:06:33.260
  • HOW IS THAT KIND OF AGAME-CHANGER AS WE MOVE
  • 00:06:33.260 --> 00:06:34.795
  • FORWARD?
  • 00:06:34.795 --> 00:06:36.363
  • - ISRAEL'S TRUE STRATEGICBOUNDARIES ARE NOT THE ONES
  • 00:06:36.363 --> 00:06:40.067
  • THAT YOU SEE ON THE MAP.
  • 00:06:40.067 --> 00:06:41.769
  • ISRAEL'S TRUE STRATEGICBOUNDARIES TODAY ARE IN THE
  • 00:06:41.769 --> 00:06:44.405
  • EAST, IRAN AND INTHE SOUTH, YEMEN.
  • 00:06:44.405 --> 00:06:49.176
  • AND THE REASON I'M SAYINGTHAT IS BECAUSE THE COMMON
  • 00:06:49.176 --> 00:06:51.578
  • DENOMINATOR IS THAT BOTH INIRAN, AS WELL AS IN YEMEN
  • 00:06:51.578 --> 00:06:55.883
  • AND ADDITION TO THAT OFCOURSE IN IRAQ AND SYRIA AND
  • 00:06:55.883 --> 00:06:59.186
  • LEBANON AND GAZA STRIP, WHATISRAEL IS FACING TODAY IS AN
  • 00:06:59.186 --> 00:07:03.123
  • INCREASING ACCUMULATINGIRANIAN SEVERE THREAT IN THE
  • 00:07:03.123 --> 00:07:09.630
  • SHAPE OF MASSIVELYARMED IRANIAN PROXIES.
  • 00:07:09.630 --> 00:07:16.003
  • YOU MENTIONED THEHOUTHIS IN YEMEN.
  • 00:07:16.003 --> 00:07:18.038
  • WE ARE ALL FAMILIAR WITHHEZBOLLAH IN LEBANON.
  • 00:07:18.038 --> 00:07:21.008
  • THERE ARE IRAQI MILITIA,SHIITE IRAQI MILITIAS THAT
  • 00:07:21.008 --> 00:07:27.481
  • ARE MASSIVELY SUPPORTED BYTHE IRANIANS, AND THEY ARE
  • 00:07:27.481 --> 00:07:31.051
  • ACTING AS THEIRSUBCONTRACTORS.
  • 00:07:31.051 --> 00:07:34.021
  • I'M NOT SURE THAT MANYPEOPLE IN THE WEST
  • 00:07:34.021 --> 00:07:36.223
  • UNDERSTAND THAT, BUT WHAT'SHAPPENING IN THE LAST COUPLE
  • 00:07:36.223 --> 00:07:39.393
  • OF YEARS IS THAT IRAN HASBUILT AN ARMY OF TERROR OF
  • 00:07:39.393 --> 00:07:44.231
  • DOZENS AND THOUSANDS OFMILITANTS SCATTERED IN
  • 00:07:44.231 --> 00:07:48.302
  • DIFFERENT PARTS OFTHE MIDDLE EAST.
  • 00:07:48.302 --> 00:07:50.003
  • THEY ARE MASSIVELY ARMEDWITH THE NEWEST WEAPONS THE
  • 00:07:50.003 --> 00:07:53.740
  • IRANIAN CAN PROVIDE THEMWITH, AND THAT PRESENTS A
  • 00:07:53.740 --> 00:07:56.510
  • VERY SIGNIFICANT CHALLENGETO THE WHOLE REGION.
  • 00:07:56.510 --> 00:07:59.713
  • - TOUGH TO SAY, OBVIOUSLY,THINGS ARE JUST STARTING
  • 00:07:59.713 --> 00:08:01.782
  • WITH THE NEW ADMINISTRATION,BUT HOW DOES THIS CHANGE THE
  • 00:08:01.782 --> 00:08:05.586
  • LANDSCAPE OF THEMIDDLE EAST RIGHT NOW?
  • 00:08:05.586 --> 00:08:07.721
  • AND HOW DOES THEIRANIAN REGIME FEEL?
  • 00:08:07.721 --> 00:08:09.923
  • DO THEY PERHAPS FEELEMBOLDENED WITH THE NEW
  • 00:08:09.923 --> 00:08:12.259
  • ADMINISTRATION COMING IN?
  • 00:08:12.259 --> 00:08:14.127
  • - LET ME TRY TO REFLECT TOYOU HOW IT'S LOOKED FROM THE
  • 00:08:14.127 --> 00:08:16.463
  • REGION.
  • 00:08:16.463 --> 00:08:18.131
  • LET ME START WITHTHE EASIEST THING.
  • 00:08:18.131 --> 00:08:20.801
  • IF YOU SCREEN ACROSS ITSREGION, I'M TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:08:20.801 --> 00:08:23.437
  • THE MAJOR ARAB STATES, THEGULF MONARCHIES, EGYPT, AND
  • 00:08:23.437 --> 00:08:27.174
  • I'M ADDING TO THAT ISRAEL,THEY ARE ALL ONE WAY OR
  • 00:08:27.174 --> 00:08:30.744
  • ANOTHER INTIMIDATED BY THEIRANIANS EXPANSION, THEY
  • 00:08:30.744 --> 00:08:36.116
  • LOOK AT THE NEWADMINISTRATION, AND ONE OF
  • 00:08:36.116 --> 00:08:38.118
  • THE MOST SIGNIFICANTPARAMETERS THEY ARE LOOKING
  • 00:08:38.118 --> 00:08:40.687
  • AT WITH THE NEWADMINISTRATION IS WHETHER
  • 00:08:40.687 --> 00:08:43.657
  • THIS ADMINISTRATION ISGOING BACK TO THE DAYS OF
  • 00:08:43.657 --> 00:08:45.959
  • PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, ANDTHERE IS A LOT OF CONCERN
  • 00:08:45.959 --> 00:08:49.730
  • AMONG, AS YOU CANUNDERSTAND, GULF STATES,
  • 00:08:49.730 --> 00:08:53.567
  • EGYPT AND ISRAEL THAT PEOPLEIN THE ENVIRONMENT OF
  • 00:08:53.567 --> 00:08:58.672
  • PRESIDENT BIDEN WILL BE KINDOF LIKE PUSHING TOWARDS MORE
  • 00:08:58.672 --> 00:09:03.844
  • AND MORE POLICY THATRESEMBLES THE POLICY OF
  • 00:09:03.844 --> 00:09:06.647
  • PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA.
  • 00:09:06.647 --> 00:09:10.183
  • AND THAT CAUSES A LOT OFCONCERN BOTH IN ISRAEL, AS
  • 00:09:10.183 --> 00:09:13.320
  • WELL AS IN THE ARABGULF MONARCHIES.

  • 00:11:40.963 --> 00:11:43.032
  • THERE IS SO MUCH TO TALKABOUT, BUT LET'S
  • 00:11:43.032 --> 00:11:45.101
  • START WITH IRAN.
  • 00:11:45.101 --> 00:11:46.602
  • WHY IS IT SO CRUCIAL THATIRAN AND HEZBOLLAH DO NOT
  • 00:11:46.602 --> 00:11:50.239
  • ESTABLISH A FOOTHOLD ON THEGOLAN HEIGHTS
  • 00:11:50.239 --> 00:11:52.542
  • NEAR ISRAEL'S BORDER?
  • 00:11:52.542 --> 00:11:54.510
  • AND HOW IS THE ASSAD REGIMEIN SYRIA HELPING THEM?
  • 00:11:54.510 --> 00:11:58.281
  • - LET'S ZOOM OUT A BIT ANDTHINK ABOUT WHAT IRAN IS
  • 00:11:58.281 --> 00:12:02.118
  • TRYING TO ACHIEVE.
  • 00:12:02.118 --> 00:12:03.820
  • THEY HAVE SPENT BILLIONS OFDOLLARS OVER MANY YEARS IN
  • 00:12:03.820 --> 00:12:06.355
  • TRYING TO BRIDGE ONE BIGCHALLENGE THAT THEY HAVE:
  • 00:12:06.355 --> 00:12:10.493
  • THE BIG CHALLENGE IS THATIRAN IS OVER HERE, AND
  • 00:12:10.493 --> 00:12:13.229
  • ISRAEL IS HERE, AND THEY'RETRYING TO GAP MORE THAN
  • 00:12:13.229 --> 00:12:15.932
  • 600 MILES OF DISTANCE.
  • 00:12:15.932 --> 00:12:18.201
  • NOW, THEY'VE GOT TWO WAYSIN WHICH THEY TO THAT.
  • 00:12:18.201 --> 00:12:20.970
  • ONE IS BY USING PROXYORGANIZATIONS LIKE HEZBOLLAH
  • 00:12:20.970 --> 00:12:23.973
  • IN LEBANON, ANDISLAMIC JIHAD IN GAZA,
  • 00:12:23.973 --> 00:12:27.777
  • AND THE OTHER WAY ISBY FORWARDING MILITARY
  • 00:12:27.777 --> 00:12:31.681
  • CAPABILITIES FROM IRAN INTOSYRIA AND THEN TRYING TO
  • 00:12:31.681 --> 00:12:34.717
  • ATTACK ISRAEL USING EITHERSYRIA AS THE LAUNCH PAD OR
  • 00:12:34.717 --> 00:12:38.921
  • LEBANON AS THE LAUNCH PAD.
  • 00:12:38.921 --> 00:12:41.324
  • NOW, I'M SURE YOU KNOW ANDREMEMBER VERY WELL, BUT I
  • 00:12:41.324 --> 00:12:45.194
  • DON'T KNOW IF EVERYBODY INTHE CROWD REMEMBERS, THAT
  • 00:12:45.194 --> 00:12:47.130
  • IRAN HAS ALREADY TRIED TOATTACK ISRAEL SIX TIMES IN
  • 00:12:47.130 --> 00:12:51.300
  • THE LAST TWO YEARS.
  • 00:12:51.300 --> 00:12:53.002
  • ALL OF THOSE ATTACKS CAMEFROM SYRIA WHICH ALSO MEANS
  • 00:12:53.002 --> 00:12:56.305
  • THAT THE ASSAD REGIME ISRESPONSIBLE
  • 00:12:56.305 --> 00:12:59.142
  • FOR THOSE ATTACKS.
  • 00:12:59.142 --> 00:13:01.110
  • ALL OF THOSE ATTACKS WERETHWARTED BY THE IDF.
  • 00:13:01.110 --> 00:13:04.480
  • FORTUNATELY, THERE WERENO CASUALTIES AND NO
  • 00:13:04.480 --> 00:13:06.415
  • SUBSTANTIAL DAMAGE.
  • 00:13:06.415 --> 00:13:08.050
  • AND AS YOU ALSO KNOW, EVERYTIME THEY ATTACKED US, WE
  • 00:13:08.050 --> 00:13:10.853
  • MADE SURE TO RETALIATE INKIND AND MADE SURE THAT THEY
  • 00:13:10.853 --> 00:13:14.090
  • GET THE MESSAGE THATATTACKING ISRAEL FROM SYRIA
  • 00:13:14.090 --> 00:13:17.560
  • IS AN EXERCISE IN FUTILITYAND THAT WE WON'T ALLOW
  • 00:13:17.560 --> 00:13:20.730
  • IRANIANS TO ESTABLISHTHEMSELVES MILITARILY IN
  • 00:13:20.730 --> 00:13:23.800
  • SYRIA AND TO OPEN UP ASECOND FRONT IN THE NORTH
  • 00:13:23.800 --> 00:13:27.537
  • AGAINST ISRAEL.
  • 00:13:27.537 --> 00:13:29.505
  • - JONATHAN, TELL US WHYTHESE PRECISION GUIDED
  • 00:13:29.505 --> 00:13:31.707
  • MUNITIONS, OR PGMS, WOULD BEA POTENTIAL GAME CHANGER IF
  • 00:13:31.707 --> 00:13:35.945
  • HEZBOLLAH GOT ITSHANDS ON THEM?
  • 00:13:35.945 --> 00:13:38.614
  • AND TELL US A BIT MORE, IFYOU CAN, ABOUT HEZBOLLAH'S
  • 00:13:38.614 --> 00:13:41.150
  • OVERALL CAPABILITIES.
  • 00:13:41.150 --> 00:13:43.686
  • - SO PGMS, OR PRECISIONGUIDED MUNITIONS, ARE
  • 00:13:43.686 --> 00:13:47.456
  • BASICALLY ADVANCED ROCKETS.
  • 00:13:47.456 --> 00:13:50.126
  • WHAT THEY MEAN IS THAT IFYOU HAVE AN OLD ROCKET,
  • 00:13:50.126 --> 00:13:53.229
  • WHICH YOU PLACE IN ALOCATION, YOU AIM IT, AND
  • 00:13:53.229 --> 00:13:56.432
  • THEN YOU FIRE IT, YOU CAN'TREALLY CONTROL IT IN MIDAIR,
  • 00:13:56.432 --> 00:14:01.003
  • THE CHANCES ARE ACTUALLYHITTING YOUR INTENDED TARGET
  • 00:14:01.003 --> 00:14:05.308
  • ARE A STATISTIC.
  • 00:14:05.308 --> 00:14:07.076
  • AND IN ORDER TO ACTUALLY HITTHE TARGET, YOU HAVE TO FIRE
  • 00:14:07.076 --> 00:14:09.645
  • MANY ROCKETS IFYOU'RE A TERRORIST.
  • 00:14:09.645 --> 00:14:12.281
  • THE BIG DIFFERENCE WITHPGMS ARE THAT YOU CAN FIRE
  • 00:14:12.281 --> 00:14:15.785
  • THEM, AND YOU STEER THEMIN FLIGHT, AND THEY HAVE A
  • 00:14:15.785 --> 00:14:18.688
  • TARGET AREA OFABOUT 150 FEET.
  • 00:14:18.688 --> 00:14:22.792
  • NOW IMAGINE A TERRORISTORGANIZATION LIKE HEZBOLLAH
  • 00:14:22.792 --> 00:14:26.729
  • HAVING THE ABILITY TO STRIKEALMOST PIN POINT ACCURACY
  • 00:14:26.729 --> 00:14:32.101

  • 00:14:32.101 --> 00:14:34.537

  • CAPACITY OFHEZBOLLAH TO ATTACK.
  • 00:14:45.381 --> 00:14:48.284
  • THAT IS WHY WE ARE SOADAMANT ABOUT THE FACT THAT
  • 00:14:48.284 --> 00:14:52.521
