I've Been Thinking:
Israel just nixed a half billion dollar arms deal with Croatia. The director general of Israel's ministry of defense former general Udi Adam flew to Crotia to inform them personally that the deal would not be realized.
The deal was for 12 F-16's Barak fighter jets that Israel bought from the US 30 years ago.
The US forced Israel to nix the deal.
The US needed to approve Israel's re-sale of a US weapons to a third party ... in this case Croatia. Why does the US care about 30 year old technology?
It was not the US technology that the US was worried about. It was the Israeli upgrades in the radar and sophisticated technology.
The US is worried about the Israeli technology. But the US is most afraid that countries will prefer the superior Israeli version of the F-16 and it will undercut the US weapons sales.
The US is 100%.
