Global troops to protect Israel

If successful, the “Trophy” system could radically alter the balance of power if the country goes to war again against Hezbollah guerrillas in neighboring Lebanon. Its performance could also have much wider implications as American troops and their Western allies battle insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan
