Why Rafael can't see Iron Dome to anyone else

Why can't Iron Dome's manufacturer, Rafael, sell more any Iron Dome systems outside Israel?

Yes, of course. This is why (Hat Tip: Sunlight).

That's only partially true. If it were completely accurate then the same case could be made for doing away with drones and precision weapons and just wheel out the B-52's and napalm everyone from one end to the other. Which they're clearly not doing. A more crucial fact is that most countries don't give care what happens to their own civilians and if they get blown up by mortars and artillery rockets, then so what.

One country that IS interested in Iron Dome is South Korea, many ways confronted with the same kind of mass murdering insane low tech opponent, North Korea. Not even communist China is prepared to lose their new economic infrastructure in a futile fight with Taiwan so they're not going to randomly bombard them for political purposes.

If I were Cyprus though, I'd keep a weather eye out for Turkish 'activists' to start the same kind of thing from the north.
