Report: IDF, U.S. military to simulate Iran missile strike on Israel


The Israel Defense Forces and the U.S. military will soon hold a training exercise in which they will simulate missile attacks on Israel from Iran, Syria, Lebanon and Gaza, the pan-Arab newspaper Asharq al-Awsat reported Sunday.

The exercise will be carried out as part of the ongoing maneuvers between Israel and the United States, the London-based paper said, which will reportedly be the broadest-ever this year.

According to the paper, the drill is also part of U.S. President Barack Obama's new missile defense plan, under which the Pentagon will initially deploy ships with missile interceptors instead of stationing missile defense systems in Eastern Europe.

The objective of the missile plan is to counter the threat of missile attack from Iran, not Russia.

The report came shortly before Defense Minister Ehud Barak was to leave for the United States, where he was to meet with his counterpart, Robert Gates.

Only last month, the IDF held a joint naval exercise with the U.S. and Turkish militaries in the international waters off Israel's coast, according to Army Radio. Six missile boats, three helicopters and two jets participated in the drill, which simulated search and rescue operations, Army Radio reported.

    Does the U.S. "simulating an Iran missile strike on Israel" sound like a good idea, or does it instigate more fear & distrust for both sides?

    They may be afraid of disappointing you. Rather you see it or not most kids have a great desire to please their parents and will keep their less than flattering behaviors out of sight to avoid hurting you. One of the key aspects of your job is to educate them with everything you know. This kind of protective education lets them know the potential repercussions of their actions. These are not one time conversations... they are ongoing.

    I hope this article helps make talking with the child in your life about this seemingly difficult topic a little easier.

    * You drinking? * You smoking? * You doing any drugs? * You got a boyfriend? * A girlfriend? * Your friends drinking, smoking, doing any drugs? * Your friends have boyfriends/girlfriends?

    I believe many kids seek a mature and adult-like relationship because they lack some form of support, connection, and or attention. Having sex has very real consequences both physically and emotionally. The emotions that come from having sex can be heavy and overwhelming for someone too young; they can be even for someone older who has sexual experience. Confusion often sets in on them, their priorities shift, and their lives become muddled.

    Every child that's in my life hears a series of questions from me almost every time I see them. The questions are:

    Kids are always thinking... all of the time. You may think they're fine, you've got good kids, you think they'd come to you, they'd tell you if they were engaging in or even thinking about having sex, but this isn't always the case. Did you go to your parents before you started having sex? Did you let your parents know that you were thinking about having sex? If you were like the majority of adolescent and teenagers I'm guessing that you did not. It may have been embarrassing for you to bring up such a topic. Maybe you were afraid you'd get in trouble, or maybe you thought they'd keep you from your girlfriend or other friends. Chances are better than not your kid has the same fears, concerns, and apprehensions.

    Many kids seek out their friends/boyfriends over their family because they feel a greater acceptance of who and how they are from their peer groups and therefore they feel more relaxed around them. They may feel their peers/girlfriend have a greater respect for their thoughts, words, and actions than their family does. Their friends never yell at or demean their already fragile self-esteem so there's an immediate comfort with their friends or boyfriend if there is a lot of yelling in their household. Rather you agree with these statements or not, if this is their perspective... then this is their experience.

    It is not their job to bring up the difficult subjects... it's yours... and it's expected of you. And as hard as the subject matter may be, as awkward and or uncomfortable as you might feel you simply need to suck it up, and get the conversation rolling.

    Many kids, espec

    On Alishan, generally have three routes:
    First, from Nantou Lutheran - New Central Cross-Island Highway Dongpu by the Yushan population Tatachia saddle on Mt;
    Second, most people take the route through the mountains of Chiayi, half-way through the stone table (stone Zhao, Shi Zhuo are) on the Alishan;
    The third is to train or high-speed rail to Chiayi, Chiayi City high-speed rail station to board the bus are connected Ali, are very convenient.

    We chose the line two, take the bus winds on the way you can see the hot, warm, warm, cold, seasonal landscape trees.

    (recommended: easy motion sickness friends have to eat in the mountains before the motion sickness pills.)

    Ali's red cypress is very valuable with the natural fragrance of the wood, when the Japanese in order to transport such a large number of precious wood was built out of this mountain railway.

    Alishan rail link seventy-two km, due to the steam engine when not climbing, so the bevel gear developed by the Japanese-style vertical cylinder, this cylinder with a small train, speed is only 25 kilometers in case of six per cent slope, places nine kilometers per hour pace, which at the time was an international sensation, is the world's only umbrella upright cylinder steam locomotive. Now this has become a tourist train set train pull tourists.
