The White House asked the Congress $ 500 million for the development of the Israeli missile defense system

The administration of Donald Trump has requested from the US Congress $ 500 million dollars to assist Israel in improving the missile defense system, reports TASS.


The White House asked the Congress $ 500 million for the development of the Israeli missile defense system


As part of the United States’s fulfillment of its obligations to Israel, we propose to allocate $ 500 million for further procurement and development of missile defense systems such as the Iron Dome (Iron Dome), Arrow (Strela), David’s Sling (David’s Slip) and Upper Tier ("Upper Echelon"),
Gary Pennett, director of operations at the Pentagon ABM Agency, told reporters.

Recall that the United States has been assisting the Israeli authorities for more than 30 for years — both in money and participation in development and testing — in creating a layered defense system against shelling of the country's territory, which are mainly fired by unguided rockets by the Hezbollah and Palestinian forces of Hamas.

Iran’s vigorous development of high-precision missiles has required adjustments to this project. The Israeli leadership expects that the Arrow anti-missiles (in Hebrew "Hetz") improved with the help of the USA will be able to neutralize this threat.

      Well no. It’s just that the “God-chosen” rule in the USA, and Israel, its 37th state.

        Since the days of the founding fathers, the United States is essentially an Anglo-Zionist empire.

        Mattresses do not give Israel such a lot of money for beautiful eyes, but with a distant eye, if the Israelis do something worthwhile, the United States will gladly buy such a missile defense system, they themselves don’t get anything good, as we see.

          they themselves then nothing good, as we see, does not work.

          The main thing is that The USA succeeded in making Israel both a testing ground and a research center at the same time. Moreover, scientific and technical personnel there are vitally interested in obtaining a result. It is impossible to come up with a stronger incentive than a family that can at any moment undergo rocket fire. It is a pity that the desire for profit does not in any way give the Jews a sober look at the true reasons why this conflict has been going on for half a century.

          That's right. Development money is given under conditions that both
          development results (all patents and technical solutions) become
          US property. The conditions are beneficial for both countries.
          The components of the Iron Dome and David Slings are already in use
          and in American air defense / missile defense.
          And if the Pentagon purchases the whole product and production goes into a large series,
          then the purchase price for the IDF drops. Double benefit.

              Of course I have. There is nothing super-duper in the systems: radar-SLA-missiles.
              But our systems are more tested in combat conditions.

    There is nothing to be surprised at: Israel is a highly developed country where not only the United States invests to create Microsoft, Intel (6000 people work in Israel), IBM .... but also China, Japan ....
    Israel is a world leader in the number of scientific publications, in the number of registered patents (per capita).
    Israel has the largest number of scientists in the world: for 10000 people - 145 scientists, while in the USA - 85, Japan-70, Germany-60.
    The cell phone, flash drives, microprocessors ... used in Russia were developed in Israel, Windows operating systems - in the Israeli branch of Microsoft.
    The country has its own “Silicon Valley” ... free food is only in a mousetrap.
    The Pentagon (USA) invests (hires engineers in Israel) and after development receives weapons (missiles), which are jointly tested, manufactured and introduced into the missile defense system ...
    Today, for example, the Iron Dome, not only destroys terrorist missiles on earth, but is also installed on warships ...

    so the slogan “I will defeat Israel” has already become obsolete because no one needs this very piece of land; it’s another matter if the “Syrians” turn it into a working training ground because all these Jewish bells and whistles like “glass drushlyak” all “davids” must be constantly and most importantly unexpectedly checked for strength, especially since the “Syrians” have their hands untied, then they should be at war with Israel ; besides this, "some" design bureaus have already been waiting for when their hehe products will be tested and not on some kind of "pop poises" like igil but on the most cunning and treacherous enemy
