8 Comments on Sale Of $8 Billion in F-16s To Taiwan Moves Forward

  1. So why would PRC get upset because Taiwan buys a bunch of planes? It’s not like Taiwan is going to start a war. Does China really think we are stupid? (Make that STILL stupid).

  3. Official diplomatic recognition should be in-play with the WH. Enough Jimmahing around the issue. 2020 is looking good for the DPP and GOP.


    F16s do not cost 121 million dollars each. Hell, the the new F35s are only 80 million a pop.

    Man, those must be some expensive weapons systems. I bet they glow in the dark
