[millionday] Lockheed Martin Corp this week will deliver the first of 36 F-16 fighter jets to Iraq, marking what Baghdad's envoy to the United States called a "new chapter" in his country's ability to defend its vast borders with Iran and other neighbors.
Iraqi Ambassador Lukman Faily will travel to Lockheed's Fort Worth, Texas, plant on Thursday for a ceremony at which Lockheed and the U.S. government will formally deliver the first F-16 to Iraq. A group of three or four new jets will be ferried to Iraq before the end of the year.
[millionday] "Iraq is a large country with over 3,600 km of borders, and we need to protect them," Faily told Reuters in a telephone interview. "We as a country didn't have that capability before."
Iraq has had no real air force since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003 that eventually toppled Saddam Hussein. Baghdad has also signed military contracts with Russia and the Czech Republic, among others, and has said it will not be able to fully defend its airspace until 2020.

[dinarmassa] How, they haven't got a strong enough military
[millionday] their military and also the international organizations they are members of and their allies will not allow that
[millionday] they are growing and will have a strong military with the tools they have been given -- it will take time as with any country but iraq is trying and training in everyway that they can to regain their independence they have many allies smile
[millionday] doing trade with each country will not lead to a takeover with the opportunity they have to gain financially but i see what you mean but trust -- the international community can not afford for terrorism to take place -- but they can afford the financial gain from the new market - brb with more
