    Iran claims to be a nuclea power now, Morisi getting F-16's after saying Jews and Zionist must be hated!

    "Dear Brothers," he exhorted Egyptian Muslims, "we must not forget to nurse our children and grandchildren on hatred towards those Zionists and Jews, and all who support them."

    By "those who support" the Jews, he means Americans — including U.S. taxpayers who are bankrolling the state-of-the-art arms he could easily use to express that hatred.

    There's no doubt our new Egyptian "ally" said what he said. The White House cannot claim he was misquoted. The New York Times has verified MEMRI's translation of his Arabic remarks, which were no isolated outrage.

    Wow, they removed my post about Jimmy Carter being, uhm, angry.  Seems el screener is on to using 5's as s's.

    Still, I bet Jimmy is rather angry at giving killer planes to the guy who wants to annihilate one of the greatest feats of diplomacy in history.

    I don't think giving F-16s to Egypt is motivated by hatred of Jewish people. It's just incompetent policy.

    We should simply say: As long as you elect leaders who hate Jews, we will not give you any aid. Maybe we'll just increase aid to Israel.



    It's not a policy decison (as in long standing policy) it's an administrations policy decision!

    In response to airborne-rgr's comment:

    I am of the opinion that the Egyptian military does do what we want and that they are the real power in the country. It's a backdoor gamble that we can have some control over the fractured country through our dealings and influence with the Egyptian military.

    If Egypt doesn't get these F-16's from us then they could get them from Turkey, who is licensed to build them. Egypt has 50 or so F-16's that were built by Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI).




    Not the same as F-16's with US technology and delivery systems.

    EXACTLY the same.

    Turkey is a NATO member and as such all the weapon systems it manufactures has to be compatible and exchangeable with other NATO systems.

    There is NO diffrence in the specs of the F-16's from Turkey.

    Do you seriously think that General Dynamics would license TAI so that they could build whatever type of plane they wanted with whatever specs they wanted?

    There is a reason behind NATO and that is interoperability. From every bullet to every missle to every combat aircraft, they all have to be interchangeable.



    So you think we have owned these aircraft for 20+ years and not made any improvements in delivery systems, radar/guidance technology etc?

    In May of 2007 a deal was finally reached and the problems with the US government evidently solved as well as the delivery schedule. This was achieved by allowing licence building of the aircraft at the TUSAS factory in Turkey, just as the other F-16s were mainly build in Turkey in the past. The order compromises of 30 F-16s and associated equipment to cover attrition and a stop-gap measure untill the arrival of the F-35 from 2015 onwards.


    Turkish Air Force already operates over  200 F-16 fighter jets and will start receiving the 30 F-16 Block 50+ between May 2011 and December 2012. All the F-16 Block 30, Block 40 and Block 50 aircraft are receiving Common Configuration Implementation Program (CCIP) upgrade which will bring them to the level of latest Block 50+ aircrafts.



    lmao!! What do you think that means?

    It 'means' exactly as it reads.

    Turkey is building the latest version of the F-16 Block 50-60. It is the EXACT same aircraft and weapons system that is being flown by NATO, including the US.

    So if Egypt wanted these newer planes, they could just ask Turkey.

     

    Still contend they are all the same?

    Note that Egypt’s new F-16C/Ds may be Block 52 aircraft, but they differ in one important respect from their counterparts in places like Singapore and Israel. Instead of relying on the modern, active-homing AIM-120 AMRAAM as their medium range air to air missile, Egypt’s F-16s depend on the older AIM-7P Sparrow. The Sparrow uses semi-active radar homing, which means the launching fighter needs to maintain a continuous illumination lock on the target aircraft.

     Here a list of "some upgrades" the US sent to Turkey for the F-16's. Turkey builds the aircraft not all the weapons/tracking and delivery systems!
