Should US buy Israeli?

I guess I would ask some questions first.

1 Is it a military capability we need?
2 Is the system effective and reliable?
3 Is it cost effective for the US taxpayer?
4 Is this a military industrial capability we need to keep in the US for security reasons ?
5 Is buying from that company or country not in the US national interest ?

The only question that concerns me is( Is it a military capability we need?)

It is IED's that are the problem in both Iraq and Afghanistan not RPG's . Why buy or develop any system at this time.

We do not need the military capability at this time. When we do need it, by all means buy from the Israelis, if it is the best system.

short answer-- No
