I've Been Thinking:
The Arrow II is Israel's answer to Iran's nuclear weapons program.
Yesterday the Arrow II failed to engage three times when it was tested off the coast of California.
The United States sent up a fake Shabbab missile.
The missile was a weapon that mimics Iran's best nuclear technology.
Everyone waited for the Israeli secret weapon to launch and strike down the attacking ordinance. And waited.
The Arrow detected the missile, but did not launch to destroy it.
Why? Because all the variables were not met.
The system that failed is supposed to prevent a misfire - when a computer shoots down a commercial airline jet.
The Iranians must be in 7th heaven.
Analysts and decision makers in Iran have to be elated.
Now Iran has no realistic check against their nuclear development.
Now the situation for Israel is bad, very bad.
Israel now knows that it has absolutely no significant tool to threaten Iran.
That means the balance sheet that had Israel able to stave off Iran is nowhere close to accurate.
That means the West is in real trouble and that Israel is on the front line.
