Duh - I usually respect what Pedahtzur writes but this was silly. Of course the Arrow can't deal with Katushas and other tactical missle systems, it wasn't designed to do so. As to Iranian nukes, obviously the best thing to prevent Iran from getting them. If however they do. The Arrow will play an important deterent role. Iranian leaders contemplating a nuclear strike on Israel will need to consider whether and to what degree their nukes will get through in addition to Israel's retaliation which I'm sure they know will be catastrophic for Iran. No weapons system can promise 100% success but think of how many lives will be saved by every missle knocked down. BTW Final Solution - Nuke Germany? Are you insane? Do you know that Germany's submarines which we received for free are a crucial part of our nuclear deterence since they give us an assured second strike capability?
