Do-Over (and Over?)

India has reconsidered their purchase of French fighter aircraft:

The Indian government formally scrapped plans to buy as many 126 fighter jets from Dassault Aviation SA, opening up the possibility it may tender anew for more than $10 billion of planes.

I'm biased, but for this most important procurement decision for this decade, I think India would be wise to buy American.

Sadly for India, the way their corrupt military procurement process creaks along, this will be the most important defense purchase India will make next decade.
