welldone for making me feel like a kuntz and making ye self into a pious being. may Allah elevate your status!No personal insults please.
I do admire @Zarvan for his patriotism and optimism. It is just getting too excited at times that is the problem and as long as i do not get a DIRECT message from him asking me to stop, i will continue fighting this battle to get him back to understanding things that should and should not be said.
I have multiple times said that in today's world, there are NO ABSOLUTE CERTAINTIES! Not in defense matters at least. It is not just about performance and price but politics as well. And you know how politics works, the parties that built their political carrier opposing each other claim that they are partners now, have we not seen this happen? This is politics! Things can change at the last movement. So regardless of us showing interest, having arranged for money (which ALWAYS IS A PROBLEM in our case so that "MONEY NO ISSUE" is bullcr@p) So pardon me if i challenge statements like AH-1Z is a done deal, or C-130J is a done deal, or OPH is a done deal or U-214 is a done deal, or Z-10 are coming for sure, or T-129 are coming for sure, or F-16 Blk 72 is finalized and are in transit or The vipers have landed in Multan and we are hiding this news until all eight thousand of those arrive or PN will get a nuclear submarine from China in 2021-2022 or PAF is going for Su35 or PAF is going for EFT and its a done deal OR those UAE Cargo planes brought Mirages etc etc! NOTING IS A DONE DEAL UNTIL IT IS DONE. We paid for those god forsaken F-16 decades ago, remember? wasn't it a done deal at that time? US-Pak relations were great, we evaluated and decided to buy more F-16, LM and USA agreed, money was settled,, DONE DEAL???? Where are those damn planes? If people still do not understand this, all i can do is keep reminding them of their mistakes. Stubbornness is one thing, stupidity is another!
