Star Wars objections still stand

Reader comment on item: Lessons of the War in Gaza

1. An air force would take out the ati-rocket batteries.

2. The anti-rockets are more expensive than the rockets. The strategy would be to send in more cheap rockets until the anti-rockets are depleted then send the expensive rockets. My guess is that Hamas is already experimenting with the response by sending in a lotof rockets all at the same time.
