Saw a news blurb about Venezuela crowing about the pending (2010) delivery of K-8 Karakorum planes from China. VE General Jorge Arevalo says:
…the Chinese planes and radars were intended to boost Venezuela’s defensive capabilities, adding: “we don’t attack anybody.
Not for nothing but this plane isn’t gonna help if the US decided to let the Raptors fly. I’m sorry but the folks down there seem wicked paranoid if you ask me.
