Well Well Well.........
What do we hear eh....... Khan out and Euro Canards in????
This in a situation where MMS would rather have his MMS leaked out rather than ditch Khan.
I have so many theories in my head as to why Hindi Khani will be allies, I was thinking that this deal will be a showcase to that.

1) The deal will be expanded.
2) The downlist will have atleast one single engine, one American plane and one plane which probably will be most aspirational for the IAF.
The single engined plane will be used as a bargaining chip to bring down prices. All shortlisted vendors will revise prices downwards to get a bigger slice.
The final order will be split between the American contender and the other twin engined shortlisted candidate.
All the above and the final price negotiations will take more than a year or so and the final deal with suppliers will be signed in the last days of the incumbent govt.
Though, if things don't turn out this way, I will sit quitely in a corner and eat fried crow with humble pie, but I'm willing to stick this out. Lets see..
It seems its time for me to accept defeat and sit in the corner and eat the humble pie and roasted crow whaile facing the music.
I had little hope of Khan revival a -la

Given the employment benefit that the US expects from this deal, and the clout US has with the PMO, I wouldn't write off the teens yet
and was thinking that the hotlines are buzzing already and the baba has already made his displeasure clear to MMS, who is in depression thinking how to fix St.Antony
But then I <BAM> I heard Roemer bhai got the boot. So Khans seem to be out for good, so its crow and humble pie for me.
But its all good, I might have totally wrong but its clear that IAF has chosen without fear or favor and if it helps its long term intrests then 3 cheers to it!!!!
