Exclamation Something America Armed Forces Should Learn From

Something America Armed Forces Should Learn From
Israel has developed a feature on their Spike Missile that the US should learn from!

The Spike features a non-line-of-sight firing capability, making it a more flexible weapon than the American Hellfire. But one feature of the Spike that is entirely missing in Hellfire is that the operator can change target in mid-course or even destroy the weapon in flight if the target turns out to be wrong -- a capability that is not trivial. This could save lives in an accidental friendly fire, "blue on blue" or wrong target incident as in "a school or hospital" accidentally targeted, as has happened because Islamic Terrorists like Hamas and Hezbollah love to use such buildings to fire from using the occupants as human shields. Since the Israeli have already developed the technology this should be either adopted to the Hellfire or the Israeli Spike missile co-produced for American forces use which ever is most practical!

O Israel
The LORD bless you and keep you;
The LORD make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you;
The LORD lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace.
