    You can bet your last cent that the corruption was instigated by the Yanquis. That is their modus operandi for global neo-colonial
    control. There is not a crook on the planet that the USA will not groom and succor to be one of its dogs. Take Navalny the grifter
    for example.

    Their allegations raise serious questions about the working practices of both the Iraqi Air Force and Sallyport Global Services, the U.S. contractor responsible for providing the base with food, sleeping quarters, security, and fuel supplies.

    That is just normal... if you get a contract to do something you work out how many people you need to get the job done in the allotted time and then you hire them but in the books instead of saying you hired 20 guys, you put 100... and put reprimands and cautions for slow working... breaking equipment... etc etc the 20 guys get the job done and you pocket the wages of 80 guys and keep the equipment you pretend was broken or lost or stolen.

    Apparently Lockheed technicians left Iraq and most of the Iraqi f16 are not in airworthy.
    Furthermore Iraq allegedly do not receive anymore all of the spare parts they need.  

    This means that only 7 F16 are combat capable (earlier they had about 20 F16 combat capable).
    Iraq have 34 F16, including 8 used as trainers.

    According to one Iraqi Air Force (IQAF) pilot

    Most planes are now grounded because they (air force personnel) don’t know what they are doing re the upkeeping, which in turn means that the Iraqi pilots can’t do their certification flights every month thus are rendered not combat-ready

    These issues are pushing IRAQ to replace the F16 with MiG29.
    the IQAF is now looking at procuring Mikoyan MiG-29s from Russia, with the Iraqi Ministry of Defense also announcing that it has been negotiating to bring in the fighter jets to replace the US F-16s
