U.S. Finishes 3 Week Drill with IDF

Juniper Cobra 10, a three week joint air defense exercise, ended today. The test simulated rocket fire from different types of Iranian missiles. Various officers described it as:

"yielded great results"

At least it didn't lay an egg. The drill ended on a big day for U.S.-Israeli relations. Defense Minister Ehud Barack met with Pentagon Chief Bob Gates, while Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will met with President Barack Obama.

Note: The first Juniper Cobra simulated missile attacks from Iraq. The U.S. invaded two years later. Also, the drill could be abbreviated JC. That might inspire a superstar rating.
