Who would have thought we would see a world where Germany would part ways with the US made THAAD system and instead sign up to purchase Israel’s Arrow 3 in order to defend itself from Russia.
Like everything else during Biden’s term, things just keep on getting worse. Germany, who is the leading country in the EU appears to be ready dump the US THAAD missile defense system. Germany appears ready to cut a deal with Israel for its cutting edge missile defense technology – the Arrow 3.
In a joint press conference in Germany, Prime Minister Lapid said the following: “Israel … will play a part in building Germany’s new defense force, mainly in the field of air defense. It has to do with our total commitment to the safety of Germany, to the safety of Europe, to the ability of liberal democracies to defend themselves.”
According to Reuters a German source told them: “Yes, there is the plan to buy Arrow 3, but nothing is signed.”
