When will they learn to shut up in the Israeli politcal and defense establishment if arrow isnt working as well enoughb then work to improove on it dont tell the media. If its kept a private matter Iran and Syriawill know you have a weakness which they wont hesitate to exploit. Is this really a problem with arrow or are they looking for excuses to kill the program in favour of the American THED which is a long way behind arrow in its current form. Arrow was never designed to intercept the rockets used by hezbollah and neither is THED it was designed to destroy long range balistic missles .. the missles that carry weapons of mass destuction and both Iran and Syria have balistic missles & WMDS as do plenty of other arab states who could turn hostile anytime. Another system needs to be developed for short range rockets saying we dont need arrow because it takes out one threat but not the other is like saying if I have an F16 so I dont need to carry a rifle both do different jobs.
