Come on, do you really believe what you're doing here isn't completely obvious? First going on about "L-M propaganda" in a thread that has bugger-all to do with the F-35, now trying to twist people's words by deliberately offering them limited definitions weighted towards your own arguments? Cut it out immediately, and if you do anything to the contrary you're going on holiday. I hope I have been plain enough.Why should they buy new F-16 when they get slightly used for free? Anyway I believe they need to pay for the upgrade. And they definitely need to pay for the operating costs, which in the long run constitutes the main costs of having fighter aircraft.
In any case; if you insist that they cannot afford new F-16 then does that mean that you
a) believe they cannot afford to join the development of a new "4.5 gen fighter", or
b) believe that the new fighter will be much cheaper than a new F-16, since you have already established that they cannot afford new F-16.
Careful or I report you to the Moderators...
