The New Battlefield: Star Wars vs. Mad Max

Mike Doran and Gadi Taub discuss Israel’s military sovereignty

May 15, 2024

Israel put its faith in building a small, Star Wars style, technological army. But that army was defeated on Oct. 7, by a Mad Max ragtag band of terrorists. Mike and Gadi discuss the failure of the IDF to adapt to this new Mad Max world. But in light of President Biden’s threat to withhold weapons, Israel must not only change its military thinking, it also has to reform its war economics if it is to achieve what Mike and Can Kasapoğlu call in a new piece in Tablet, “operational sovereignty.”

Also in this episode: Has Joe Biden taken his anti-Israel policy one step too far?
