    US investigating is for comfort only. What more defines for defensives purposes only than this situation. Why would the US allow the purchase when they know full well which country they will be used in defense against. I read an article where the claim was they were only to be used against the Taliban and other terrorists. Since when do they have an air force?

    another member has explained that the end user agreement allow Pakistan to use its F-16 within its territory only. if Pakistan want to fly its F-16 outside the country, it must have approval from the US first. so in this case, if PAF chase the IAF aircraft with their F-16 into India's airspace, it would have violate the end user agreement but an AMRAAM shot into India's airspace? I think that's another story.

    Still pretty absurd. So basically Pakistan has to wait until Indian fighters are well within Pakistan so they can come around from behind just to make sure the missiles falls in Pakistan and not India. It's a nice distraction that the US is a benefactor from both sides going to war. It's like during the Afghan War against the Soviets, the US bought Chinese arms to give to Afghanistan which many are the Taliban today so it didn't look like the US was directly involved angering the Soviets. Then over twenty years later Afghanistan still in possession of some of those arms the US accuses China of aiding terrorists.

    They did. Afghanistan wasn't always a dystopian landscape. Before the Soviet invasion it was roughly on par with India and Pakistan. It had an airforce since 1924 it was small but fairly modern with pilot training and aircraft from both east and west. Until 1976 when the Soviets invaded they built up that airforce to use against the Mujahadin but primarily it was Czec and Cuban pilots who flew that fleet. In 1983 Pakistan was sold F16 between then and about 89 the Pakistanis intercepted a number of Afghan Airforce aircraft in there air space.
    After the Soviet withdrawal that force declined in 92 The government fell apart. The Airforce was broken up but the Taliban got the lion's share of what was left 5 Mig21, 10 SU22, and other 5 L39C and a mix of transport and helicopters.
    The Northern Alliance had just helicopters and transports. They had an airforce, tiny but an airforce. They also had tanks not many but some. Post 9/11 The U.S. came in and destroyed or captured what was left.

    Wow it really seems like India is not happy with the outcome. It has got no chill at all. It's like the person who got used and dumped in a relationship and can't let things go while Pakistan is like the one saying, "Chill baby, chill! Let's end things on good terms and not go crazy!" India's like the kid who threw a punch at another kid, missed and got nailed in the eye in the counter punch before the teacher broke up the fight. Now that kid is pissed because he doesn't want things to end with him being the one with the black eye. The attitude is so telling.
