So Israel’s new missile defense system, the Iron Dome, has been doing a pretty good job of deflecting the rockets that Hamas has been firing at them. This is even accounting for the fact that many such rockets are poorly aimed as Islamic militants have that nasty habit of yelling “Allah Akbar!” every time they pull a trigger…which totally throws off your aim.
What I want to know is, which is stronger: the Iron Dome, or the President’s head bucket? Because nothing seems to be getting through his head bucket. As in, stuff is getting real in the Middle East while he’s been roaming around Asia looking for more world leaders to insult or bow to.
For instance, remember when Bibi told the United Nations that Iran could “pass the red line”, or have enough weapons grade uranium to make a bomb by sometime around the middle of 2013? Well, the IAEA sort of confirmed it last week. This did not penetrate the head bucket.
What about the fact that Hezbollah, who is as much of an Iranian puppet as Hamas is, isn’t getting involved in this latest skirmish with Israel? Could that mean Iran is holding Hezbollah in reserve in case Israel decides to attack? That’s not getting through the head bucket either.
So, as great as the Iron Dome appears to be, it seems that our President’s head bucket is far more effective at keeping danger at bay. Or at least the knowledge of danger, and since knowing is half the battle, or something, that keeps him at least 50% safe. Right?
Until he takes the bucket off that is…if he ever does.
