Definitely somebody has to analyse about the MIG29 in the hand of Burma’s tyrannical regime and then calculate
1. After buying them, how much Burma will become poorer
2. How they can be a guardian of the junta – if the junta can afford to
a. train the pilots and supporting teams
b. update and maintain
c. update the varieties whenever needed to face the developments against the rival technology, e.g. F16, new missile technology – which become available in the region
3. How much Burma will have to spend for basic maintenances
4. The total costs for 5 years (not sure if the junta can afford for more than five years)
Burma needs investments in economy, education, etc. What else can Burma do alternatively with such amount of money so huge? Why didn’t regime try creating jobs?
If the regime spent that money in the needs of economy wisely, it needs no appeals against international sanctions. But for now, sanctions must stay for goodness sake – or all income might end up in the air or on fire.
