    Almost zero. What a lot of people don't seem to understand is how maintenance and part dependent fighter aircraft really are.. most fighting vehicles, really.

    To actually fly these planes against the US the enemy would need access to parts and maintenance training to be effective. Without a competent and trained ground crew maintaining those jets with access to copious supplies of replacement parts those Jets will likely rot. And then there is the issue of having competent pilots to fly them.

    The most efficient removal of those planes would be for some ISIS crop duster to climb into one of these F16s and fly it towards Israel.

    He doesn't know anything. These planes require a lot of maintenance to stay operational, maintenance that requires a lot of training and parts which I promise you no out there has.

    Anyone can fly our planes.

    Doing it with any particular degree of skill is a different matter.

    Another win for the MIC. This why as a matter of policy, the US supports militant Islamic groups.
