I'm glad that the U.S. is doing so well finacially that they are able to give this kind of money to Israel. Of course the U.S. has to babysit Israel and make sure that they are well protected.

Maybe this is an answer to China investing $40 billion in Iran gas and oil.

The world is going to complete sh*t and world war 3 is fast approaching.

Arrow 3 missile defense system.
en.wikipedia.org...(missile)#Arrow_3


By August 2008 the United States and Israeli governments have initiated development of an upper-tier component to the Israeli Air Defense Network, known as Arrow 3, "with a kill ratio of around 99 percent".

From wiki


The design of Arrow 3 promises to be an extremely capable system, more advanced than what we have ever attempted in the U.S. with our programs.


From wiki but originally from defense-update.

David's Sling missile defense system.

en.wikipedia.org...'s_Sling


David's Sling (Hebrew: קלע דוד‎), also sometimes called Magic Wand (Hebrew: שרביט קסמים‎), is an Israel Defense Forces military system being jointly developed by the Israeli defense contractor Rafael Advanced Defense Systems and the American defense contractor Raytheon, designed to intercept medium- to long-range rockets.


It will be used simultaneously, according to the wiki, with "Iron Dome".
en.wikipedia.org...

But no mention of the THEL??
en.wikipedia.org...

Does the US not allow sale of the THEL to even Israel yet?
I am confused. Anyone care to explain this anomaly??

Why would Israel and the US dump this much $ on a plethora of more traditional missile intercept systems and not throw in a few THELs to round out the defense package?

I honestly am totally dumbfounded by that aspect of the whole thing.

I believe the US is just keeping good on promises made under the Bush-era.

It only costs more now due to the cost of living lol.. or in this case.. dying.
