In a Dr. Phil exclusive interview, Eric Lynn, former Senior Advisor to the Secretary of Defense and national security expert, shares insights about the recent Iranian attack on Israel where Iran launched hundreds of ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and drones in retaliation for the killing of their generals. This proved largely ineffective due to the advanced missile defense systems of Israel, developed with U.S. assistance. Mr. Lynn was credited with helping the Israel-Hamas cease-fire in 2014 by championing the Iron Dome counter-rocket system. Eric highlighted the sophistication of the Israeli defense, which consists of several tiers including the Iron Dome, David's Sling, and Arrow systems, each designed to intercept threats at different altitudes and distances. He discussed the importance of intelligent responses from Israel to deter future attacks without escalating into a larger conflict.  Eric suggested that the Iranian attack was a strategic failure, as it united international support for Israel rather than isolating it. The discussion also touched on the Iron Dome's origins, its capabilities, and its use in intercepting rockets from Gaza. Eric stressed that responses to the attack should be targeted at diminishing Iranian military capabilities while avoiding significant civilian casualties to prevent further escalation. Dr. Phil and Eric agreed that Iran's attack did not achieve its objectives and potentially strengthened Israel's position globally.

 You’re way off Dr. Phil on your white privilege comment.  You are using a straw man argument that is not backed up with statistical proof. It’s all anecdotal.  You should have a conversation with someone like Larry Elder to flush out that strawman argument and understand it better.

Yes but what about the large amount of black people who use that race card for stupid stuff. Like recently I heard a black girl on a bike whowas riding her bike going against traffic. The policeman stopped her and told her that was dangerous. When asked hfor her information, she refused. She used the black card and said the only reason why she was stopped was because she was black. STUPID. This is the issue that needs to be addressed. IT IS NOT RACISM, it is people using their race to get out of situations. The are bringing this "stigma" of racism on themselves everytime they use that race card.

Dixon said he plans to both continue drawing and help other prisoners. "If you don't have any money in this system, it's hard to get justice because the system is not equipped or designed to give a poor person a fair trial," he noted. "So we have a lot of work ahead of us." While Dixon was cleared of the murder, Judge Susan Eagan did not clear a criminal possession of a weapon charge from his record. That conviction, without the erroneous murder charge, would have come with a sentence of five to 15 years. click here to find out more https://thefridaymail.com/
