The F-16 WAS a great plane, but now, it is a bit outdated.

The F-15, F-18 and F-117 all have advantages over the F-16.

What I'm sayin' is, we can beat Pakistan's flock of F-16's if need be.

This is a carrot for helping in afgahnistan. I think it attracts a little too much attention though (although, like cervantes said, it poses little threat to us and surrounding neighbors for that matter). I think The US would never allow them to use those F-16s against India.

US sells fighter jets to Pakistan = GOOD

Russia sells ak-47's to Venezuela = BAD

:smirk:

Yeah, I love politics.

But that only permitted other men with machines to enslave them.

Whats wrong with Pakistan?

newsflash! the US sells weapons to anybody and everybody unless they are an immediate threat to their interests. Half the world is armed to the teeth by USian weapons corps.

big deal, old news.

That's good for you but I doubt that Pakistan would ever use them against you.

The people who don't have F-18's and F15's and F-117's would probably make good targets. What about those people? What would you think if you were them?

Aren't Pakistan and India having a cold war now?

These decisions are not market based. Even ol' Bushy isn't that stupid. The USA thought this would be good for it's imperialist ventures.

Now India, which has 3 times the population of the US, can struggle along in a cold war a little longer , wasting time and resources, therefore not emerging as a world power...

It's a good move if your playing a board game like RISK.

It's more of the same old shit if it's reality.

India already has F-16s from us and has defeated Pakistan in every conflict they've had. Just a small reward for all their help in Afghanistan, which goes back decades.

Exactly.

Better prop up Pakistan now, lest India achieves supreme dominance in the area.

That's how I'd play it.

USA still has F-15, F-18 and F-117. So, what's the problem?
