Whether it is a "Patriot," "Arrow," or the Ehud Barak's "Iron Night Pot" it is all garbage, an illusion for us to sleep better. When the "Iron Pot" intercepts two "Kassems" worth $2,000 with two missiles worth $100,000 while two other "Kassems" meanwhile land somewhere in the fields, it is obvious who wins. It will work a little bit against the Palestinians, Iran and North Korea. However, if Russia will spend at least 10% of the US anti-missile budget they will come up with the missile capable to penetrate any air defense. And if they wouldn't succeed they will launch 10 or twenty missiles at the same target. .
