I can't believe Saddam never recovered those...

Of course he let Iran keep his Mig-29 fleet as well....

I like the way at the end of the article it appears there is tons of Iraqi equipment just lying around all over the world, how can you forget about that sort of thing!! Heck I might go dig around in my garden see if any MiGs are buried in it.

On a serious note, are MiG 21s really what the Iraqi air force wants or needs? Those planes are mighty old and surely not what you want to rebuild an airforce with, same goes for the MiG 23s I would have thought.

Your gonna check your backyard for Iraqi migs burried ?Should someone be looking to see if youve got some oil vouchers tucked away :lol:

As the Iraqi Minister says, pretty much all theyve got are helicopters at the moment,so hes looking at it as better than nothing, to restart the jet portion of their airforce.

I suppose so, better than nothing but not by much I would imagine!

carefully, but at least they can claim to have jet fighters. Some natios dont even have them, or are so small they dont even have modernish planes. Such as the hawker hunters of lebanon.

IDK, if you want cheep and superfast, you can't beat the Mig-21. They are pretty good aircraft. Considering that their biggest rival, the F4 Phantom is still in service in nations all over the world, is it any surprise that the Fishbed is still in service? With proper upgrading, they can still give good service to 2nd and 3rd world countries. I think they will do fine for Iraq until we complete the deal for export of F16s I heard about.
The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.

Morons. They dont need jets. They should be working more on there economy, thus there populations care, and let the the US colalition take care of any military threats (which does not include police work).

Just think how far economimcaly your country could get if it did not have to spend anything on its military over the next 5 years.

Ruges, no coalition country is going to agree to that. The whole reason Bush became unpopular? The Iraq War....

So your telling me if they did not build there military. And instead spent all there money on the economy. And then say Iran decides Iraq is plum for the picking that the US would not prevent Iran from conquring Iraq?

True, Iraq should focus on their domestic problems and let someone else deal with defending their nation from invasion.

Just to make things interesting, imagine the response if Iraq outsourced its defense needs to Israel.

lol actually almost no planes were destroyed during 1999 bombing...Serbs were making just wooden models of airplanes and they made 1 for 3-4 hours.But real planes have been hidden.There was a series of nato bombings in may last year..I think they will be this year too.
Just when I discovered the meaning of life, they changed it.
