Walking through an empty city

Michael J. Totten takes a walk around Kiryat Shmona, the town most targetted by Hezbollah katyusha rockets.
I expected to see at least one destroyed house. There may be a destroyed house in there somewhere, but I drove all over and couldn’t find one.
The reason? Katyusha missiles filled with ball bearings aren't military weapons, they're weapons of terror. They can't destroy a city, but they can make it uninhabitable.
War is coming again, and it’s coming like Christmas. It will not resemble the Middle East wars we are used to.
It certainly won't if those missiles are filled with something more potent than ball bearings.
