  1. The U.S. and Canada have plenty of them as well.

    I don’t think the number of available air frames is the problem. Just political willingness, fear but also the risk that Biden cannot get a new aid package through the house in case the current one will be depleted before the end of the current fiscal year.

  2. We have so many mothballed planes in the US, that it’s ridiculous! We have more in storage than half the world’s air forces have in their inventory.
    Yet, Ukraine gets none!

    • Who pays to set everything up and keep it going? If it depletes the remainder of the aid package and a new one can’t be obtained, what then? Is Ukraine best served by spending available aid on planes that are expensive to operate and will be vulnerable to MANPADS and SAMS?

      If it were up to Biden, he’d surely allocate more aid. Unfortunately we can see the RNC now running AI generated ads that are realistic, bleak and scary questioning “what if” China invades Taiwan and leading conservatives routinely and loudly accusing Biden’s aid of weakening America to that Chinese threat.

      But I know you will find a way to pin everything on Biden because that is just par for the course here.

      • It’s Biden’s very weak responses – the rest of the West too, by the way – which would do much to ENCOURAGE China to do what mafia land has done. I don’t understand why this is so hard to grasp.
