US delivers an Air Support Aircraft to the Lebanese Armed Forces

22Apr09

canavan_lebanese_usThe United States delivered a “Caravan” combat air support aircraft to the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) on April 15.  This aircraft is the latest equipment support delivery for the LAF in the ongoing U.S. military assistance program to Lebanon.  The U.S. program assists the LAF as it protects Lebanon’s borders and the Lebanese people.

The United States has already provided $90.7 million to the LAF in 2009.  President Obama’s administration has requested that the U.S. Congress approve additional assistance in the amount of $98.4 million.  The total amount of assistance for the LAF in 2009 would be $189.1 million.

Unlike offensive targetted weaponry, this delivery is highly encouraged to support our army in self defense, than to venture into war engaging purposes.

  1. Thank you for your continuous support! Though I don’t think we’re ever going to use them because our borders were meant to be unprotected or else we would’ve been in peace a long time ago.
