#1 Oh, BOO HOO, I'll bet Obama's expected to fork over the Latest in Aircraft, he's a "Good Muslim".

And after all, it's expected.

#2 If you were to look at the aircraft of the US, i think it is safe to say that we also have a goodly number over 20 years old and we don't lose 2% a year. and that includes working off a carrier; how many of those does Pakiwakiland have?

#3 After leaving Afghanistan lets hope we support India and Afghanistan instead of Pakistan as they are clearly no friend of the West.

They are a country full of radicals from Hamid Gul/ISI downwards.

Wouldn't surprise me if money budgeted for spare parts was being skimmed off. Corruption is a big factor in the decrepit state of Third World militaries. Phantom soldiers and phantom parts - all paid for but existing only as budget line items and secret foreign bank accounts.
