Ziceam zilele trecute despre ţara vecină şi prietenă, Irak şi şi despre F-16.

Cum se zice pe engleză? „Brown nose”…

Într-un exces de pupat americanii în/pe glutius maximus, irakienii ne urmează modelul de vasal şi încearcă să se doteze la rândul lor cu avioane de luptă multirol „aflate în uz”. 😉

Generalul Nasier A. Abadi, the Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iraqi Joint Forces:

On the building of the Iraqi military forces, the general said the need of today is to build “Airforce” strength as till now most of the budget went to building army which has now “14 divisions.” From now on, “70% of the budget will go to Airforce,” he noted.

Although the Iraqi government will need at least “three sources (quotations),” for Airforce procurements, the general explained that there is a “special deal with the U.S. over the supply of F-16 fighter jets,” with a plan to partner with F-16 squadrons based in Iraq to “train” Iraqi pilots.

Irakienii, spre deosebire de noi, vor 24 de bucăţi pentru început, dorindu-se un total minim de 96 avioane F-16.
