Well in the spirit of the US government's relationship with Israel, we see military technology exchanges. I wonder if this is supposed to prompt further US intervention in the middle east?

Raytheon Company is working with Israel Aircraft Industries' Elta Systems in pursuit of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's program to equip commercial aircraft with missile protection systems.

"Flight Guard," with the Elta radar, was recently selected by the Israel Ministry of Transportation to outfit Israel's commercial airliners. Raytheon's infrared countermeasure, demonstrated successfully on U.S. Air Force transport and tactical aircraft, is designed to release invisible, environmentally safe material into the atmosphere to defeat infrared missile threats during takeoff and landing operations. SafeFlight is fully automatic, easy to install and maintain, and a lower cost alternative to competing technologies.
