India Orders C-17s

Jan 18, 2010

Last week, India said that it intends to purchase 10 C-17s. The Indian army is also planning to purchase Chinook and Apache helicopters and P-8I planes from Boeing. The Indian army is becoming a good customer of Boeing.

At the same time, the U.S. is heavily arming Pakistan. Considering the longstanding hostilities between India and Pakistan, selling arms to these countries might not be a good idea.

But, hey, Boeing’s sole goal is to increase its profits, not reduce conflicts and bring peace.
