Re: Endgame of NaPakistan: How and what afterwards

Celebrating the distress and disarray of our inherently unstable next door neighbour is unwise IMHO. When the neighbour's house burns, the flames will inevitably lick us to some extent. The best we can hope for in the short terms is a weakened Pak to lay low and struggle with its problems and hopef...

Hawk-i is nothing more than an advanced Hawk, based on the Hawk Mk 132 that we already have. It can continue to be used to train pilots, so it isn't really adding a new type, but rather bringing a whole range of new capabilities. So far from being a circus, this is sensible. In fact, an order for 2...
