Right. And the US is not.
What was that incident where Lockheed Martin stole some confidential papers pertaining to the MMRCA deal and tried to manipulate Dassault out of the race? Yeah Americans are so clean. /s
The F-16 and F-18 failed to even clear the trials. I haven't heard LM or Boeing contesting the claims. I don't think they would not raise any hue and cry over a $10 billion deal if they suspect foul play. As corrupt as India is (which really isn't a whole lot more then US) there are times when India is dead serious about security and defense when they have a heavily armed China & Pakistan breathing down their neck. Face it. US offer fell short.
US companies are monitored closely and the culture of corruption like in india is not there in the US. Not even close.
They would not raise an issue because with india, what would be the point. None, as india would continue doing what it does, and there are no respectable courts in that country, especially when it comes to discovery rules.
Face it, india is corrupt, no worse than any other third-world country, for sure, but still horribly corrupt.
LM. . wasn't that an in-country consultant? And wasn't he fired? Hmmm. . . .not LM culture, nor Boeing's, to tolerate such activities.
Trying to equate india with US laws and practices is laughable, and defending bad behavior of india by lamely citing (non-policy, non-tolerated) alleged bad behavior on the part of someone else, is no defense at all and no justification.
Have a nice day. Buh-bye.
