Great posts as usual by all.
Have some news regarding the Hunters, I've been informed that the project has been abandoned due to the rising expenses. I just need to get confirmation from another source as well.
Reading some of the reports, it seems that some US policy makers close to Lebanon are pushing for the F-5 deal. This is just speculation though and nothing firm.
The Hawks only need a Lebanese agreement to go through and the numbers could be between 4 to 6 max. We should wait for the government to form and our beloved leaders to show some wisdom (which I doubt) so that many projects can get the go ahead. There are so many issues besides the military that need attention so let's hope for the best.
If we have some agreement, the future of our military will also be bright.
