The order is FMS and not FMF.Availability of funds IS the issue. Order was under FMF. Pakistan Army depleted its FMF allocation or it got stalled by the US Government. Final payments to clear delivery of the AH-1Z are yet to be done. US asked Pakistan to use own funds of apply for a loan. Army refused to use own funds or loan and here we all are
question is why did they on the first place? why they wasted 1 billion on just 12/13 light attack helicopters.....
Didnt these people already know? didnt they already anticipated this after the f16 saga of 1990?
But there r plenty of American products n companies working in Pakistan like KFC, McDonalds, PEPSI CO, Cokacola etc etc, Pizza Huts n all
Time to punish them as revenge, and take our money back from them or ceasing their assets like their fined Habib Bank Ltd.
Very good suggestions but only 'sovereign' country can do this unfortunately in our case well i dun need to explainIf the leadership (military or otherwise) was not all bought and sold, this was the time for making the US pay through their nose for supply lines to AFG or even use of airspace. Either price every truck and every aircraft, 20x of what would be fair, and / or make them pay in F-16s and AH-1Z, or whatever else is needed.
A convoy of trucks need to go? Okay, first release 2x F-16s, then. Make sure the F-16s are delivered beforehand, these Yankees have no honor and habitually can't keep their word.
