With all the recent hysteria in the news about North Korea testing missiles that the United States claims can now reach as far as Chicago and possibly even New York, I thought I would research our National Missile Defense.

I am aware that the most advanced missile defense system in the world is in Israel and it's a fact the we, the United States, funded and built it for them with U.S. TAXPAYER DOLLARS.

Known as the "Arrow Missile System" and "Iron Dome" Israel has the most advanced missile defense system on earth AT OUR EXPENSE.

So now that our government - which built Iron Dome - claims we are at risk of a nuclear missile launched by North Korea, I figured we must have at least as good a system as the one we built for Israel.

BUT NOT TRUE.

Traitorous U.S. companies like Boeing have powerful lobbies in Washington D.C. - twisting the arms of immoral elected officials to fund foreign defense systems and arms sales while allowing the United States to sit remain basically completely undefended from foreign missiles.

And with the WAR-MONGERS in D.C. chomping at the bit for preemptive military action against North Korea, Boeing stands to double-down on its profits from wars, conflicts and foreign arms sales.

So in comparing OUR crude missile defense system with that of Israel's, a question crossed my mind...

How can the United States government claim to be too under-funded to have created a credible missile defense system while having more than enough money to build the best in the world for foreign country???

Here's how...
The Israeli lobby in Washington is ultra-powerful and basically controls our traitorous Congress with campaign funding and other favors.

Here then is a comparison of U.S. and Israel missile defense systems.

---------------------------------------
United States National Missile Defense
---------------------------------------
The U.S. Sentinel program was a planned national missile defense during the 1970s, but was never deployed. Elements of Sentinel were actually deployed briefly as the Safeguard Program, although it was not national in scope.

The United States has had in development a nationwide anti-missile program since the 1990s. After the renaming in 2002, the term now refers to the entire program, not just the ground-based interceptors and associated facilities.

Other elements yet to be integrated into NMD (National Missile Defense) may include anti-ballistic missiles, or sea-based, space-based, laser, and high-altitude missile systems.

The NMD program is limited in scope and designed to counter a relatively small ICBM attack from a less sophisticated adversary. Unlike the earlier Strategic Defense Initiative program, it is not designed to be a robust shield against a large attack from a technically sophisticated adversary.

As of 2012, this system is operational with limited capability. In early April 2013, the Pentagon deployed 14 missile interceptors to Guam in response to the North Korean threats to deliver nuclear weapons to the United States.

Israeli National Missile Defense
---------------------------------
Israel has a national missile defense against short to long-range missiles using their Arrow missile system. The Arrow or Hetz (Hebrew: חֵץ‎), is a family of anti-ballistic missiles designed to fulfill an Israeli requirement for a theater missile defense system.

Jointly funded and produced by Israel and the United States, development of the system began in 1986 and has continued since, drawing some contested criticism.

Undertaken by Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) and Boeing, it is overseen by the Israeli Ministry of Defense's "Homa" (Hebrew: חומה"rampart") administration and the U.S. Missile Defense Agency.

The Arrow system consists of the joint production hyper-sonic Arrow anti-missile interceptor, the Elta EL/M-2080 "Green Pine" early-warning AESA radar, the Tadiran Telecom "Golden Citron" ("Citron Tree") CI center, and the Israel Aerospace Industries "Brown Hazelnut" ("Hazelnut Tree") launch control center.

The system is transportable, as it can be moved to other prepared sites.

Following the construction and testing of the Arrow 1 technology demonstrator, production and deployment began with the Arrow 2 version of the missile.

The Arrow is considered one of the most advanced missile defense programs currently in existence.

"The design of Arrow 3 promises to be an extremely capable system, more advanced than what we have ever attempted in the U.S. with our programs. This has to do with the seekers that have greater flexibility and other aspects, such as propulsion systems – it will be an extremely capable system."

It is the first operational missile defense system specifically designed and built to intercept and destroy ballistic missiles. The first Arrow battery was declared fully operational in October 2000.

Although several of its components have been exported, the Israeli Air Defense Command within the Israeli Air Force (IAF) of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) is currently the sole user of the complete Arrow system. Arrow 3 was declared operational on Wednesday, 18 January 2017.

Apart from Arrow missile, Israel has Iron dome which is designed to intercept and destroy short-range rockets and artillery shells fired from distances of 4 to 70 kilometers away and David's Sling that is designed to intercept medium- to long-range rockets and cruise missiles, such as those possessed by Hezbollah, fired at ranges from 40 km to 300 km.
