US has offered F-16's and F-18's to India. India is looking to update its aging fleet of MiG-21's and is strongly considering F-16's and F-18's.

"The United States reassured India that it had the administration’s blessing to buy F-16s, or perhaps F-18s. India is contemplating a multibillion dollar purchase of fighter planes, including U.S.-built or foreign-made aircraft." http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/7294441/

"NEW DELHI - US aviation giant Lockheed Martin has offered to build “exclusive” F-16 fighter aircraft for the Indian air force, news reports said on Sunday.

The US aerospace manufacturer was prepared to make upgraded F-16s according to Indian specifications with complete transfer of technology, the state-run Doordarshan news channel reported. Mike Kelly, senior executive of Lockheed Martin was quoted as saying the aviation giant had built exclusive fighters for other countries such as the United Arab Emirates in the past.

The F-16 deal, along with others for weapons-locating radars and US naval cover for Indian submarines in distress, are to be concluded as government-to-government deals to enable delivery of the aircraft on fast track.

India is in the process of upgrading an aging fleet of fighter aircraft, largely of Russian make." http://www.khaleejtimes.com/DisplayArticle.asp?xfile=data/subcontinent/2005/March/subcontinent_March852.xml&section=subcontinent

This is not news at all. USA have been selling weapons, including chem/bio weapons to other countries for decades.

It is news considering that F-16 Block 52's are also being sold to Pakistan again. Yep, F-16s to two countries on the brink with each other... should be interesting....

Your country like a cheep b*** . Giving anyone anythng for only one purpose - money. Or dollar stability. I don`t give a ****, why it`s still standing! Only chanse to keep dollar- war and destruction. You have done this in Ugoslavia, to destabilize raising Europe, you have done it with Iraq, showing all Middle-Easia countyr "who`s the daddy", you will deffinitly blow China -Taiwan conflict, besides, you support terrorist in Chechnya to blow russian respect in the world and throw my country into next crisis. Now India. IMO, so-called "anti-american" coalition are Paris - Berlin - Moscow - Pekin - Deli - Brazilia. So-called multi-polar geopolitic system ,against american domination. With each of them, exept, perhaps, only Brazilia, you continue your own invisible, bloodless war, dirrected to collapse of economy of each from this six countrys. France and Germany, offcourse, have some immunity against you, but thanks to such country, as Poland, Latvia, Litva, Estonia, England andsome other members of EU, price for this "immunity" is ZERO. You also haven`t succed in destroying China`s economy in middle of 1995, and I also clearly remember Elcin reign, that have destroyed all that have left from USSR. You don`t need to be a ginues to know the next target for american burockrats.

Both may prove to be powerful allies for United States.

I don`t think so. Pakistan is China`s "good friend", while Indias goverment give everybody to understand, that they are not found from USA and it`s politic. Who needs the allie, that care only for lifes of THEIR OWN citizens, ready to kill EVERITHING and EVERYBODY else?

SO much anti-US hatred. There is such a thing as reading too much into things.

I not raite your arms sales now. I just opened the upper part of an aiceberg about american in last stage of cold war.

By the way, tell my another reason for dollar to be an international money. Your country productes nothing, comparing with Japan, Malaisia, and so on. Allo your biggest facilities, corporation ext are situated abroad, while only it`s financical centers in USA, it`s when you almost fully depliet your own resources. It have to collapse in 1990 already!!! With all your spendings on military and unsuccesfull "keeping peace in the world".

USA is just a parasite on planet body, making money from people`s suffering. Just like during WWI and WWII, just like all american History. It`s your NATURE. And war between Pakistan and India, supported by USA goverment, ais just another step of it`s parasitaion.

Rantings about us arms sales are pretty pointless coming from a russian.

We have never supproted both sides of conflict, that can couse distabilize situation in the region and become a reson for war. Nucklear war, btw, becase India and Pakistan are "not-official" members of "nukelear club". Better think, what your idiots-politicks are doing! And, yes, almsot all Chinies Navy are russian, as well as all Chinias airforces are russian, Pekin also have a great number of C-300 complexes. And India is armed with new T-90 tanks as well as C-300 complexes. China even have our top-secret "SunBurn" missles, and fly on our Tu-22 boomers! SO WHAT?
