Sen. Rand Paul says The White House, Capitol buildings, and key U.S. cities should build their own versions of Israel's Iron Dome to defend them from missile attacks, BuzzFeed reports.
I saw presentations of the Iron Dome and it was very impressive
[I am] absolutely in favor of it, Paul told reporters in a conference call after touring Israel and Jordan.

Vladimir would have a fit.
D.C.? NY? LA? SF? Chicago? Lexington? Owensboro? Bowling Green?
I don’t know, Rand, I think the bas***ds would still dig their way out.
Good Lord! Why?
Is someone lobbing terrorist rockets into our cities, and it’s not being reported?
If he thinks this is a substitute for national defense, he’s a fool.
We will build those as fast as they built the fence and put protection in our schools.
better to build an Iron Dome over New York City, etc.
And may suggest this principle applied to protect cities is the same reason we want the ability to protect our homes.
Or is the Iron Dome limited to ten shots each before they have to reload.
I really do not care what happens to any of those people, Rand.
If you want it, you pay for it.
No iron domes over DC or any “blue” city.
Loosing them would constitute the first step in a vast improvement in our state of being.
Only partially joking.
Oops, for the anal-minded, that’s “losing,” not “loosing.”
The White House, Capitol buildings, and key U.S. cities
That would take care of the politicians and the murder Capitols of this country, but what would protect us honest Americans?
I really don’t think any of the politicreeps are innocent. Just about the time you think one of them has a brain and the interest of the people at heart they make some stupid statement like this. They’re special, they need to be protected more than the simple minded and must less valuable electorate.
obastard may be the dictator but the majority of politicians aren’t much closer to remembering their humility than he is.
There are already short (Avenger) and medium range missiles protecting DC. Most of the batteries are documented on Wikimapia.
Beyond that, given that the missile threat will be ICBMs, the best defense wouldn’t be Iron Dome but rather Aegis criusers and destroyers with SM3s and the anti ballistic missile upgrades stationed off the coasts
So—People who live in the city are more equal than those of us out in the sticks, Senator?
The nut didn’t fall far from the tree.
Build it over anything but the White House and Congress.
All of America EXCEPT those places!!!!!
