The y band radar that is currently stationed in Israel is a portable device. It could easily be stationed in Cyprus if it was intended to have a wider strategic value in the region. Menwith Hill and Flyingdales in Yorkshire are both radar stations which have been upgraded for the anti ballistic missile thingie. The X band radar stationed in Israel is so that the Arrow works. The 700 million that has been provided by the United States to develop the Arrow missile system is a drop in the ocean in the scheme of things. It also gives the United States control over who can buy the system if Israel ever gets it to work. A bit like the S-300 Israel doesn't want Iran to have decent air defence systems because it would make a virtually impossible job a suicidal one. The United states doesn't want Israel selling anti ballistic technology to the Chinese. It is called playing the game, and besides isn't it wierd if Israel doesn't need US help they accept $700 million of aid.
