What's That in the Sky? Santa?

Here’s a story to warm even the coldest heart toward being generous at Christmas time.

It seems that Russia has decided to give 10 MiG-29 fighter jets to Lebanon as a gift.

Mikhail Dmitriyev, the head of Russia’s Federal Military and Technical Cooperation Service, is also quoted as saying Moscow and Beirut are in talks on selling Lebanon armor for its ground forces.

“Russia’s Defense Ministry has decided to supply 10 of its MiG-29 fighters to Lebanon as a form of military and technical assistance,” Dmitriyev was quoted as saying.

And, here I was hoping for some candy in my stocking this year! I’ve definitely set my sites too low on the generosity of others!

Anyone else like to ask for a jet for Christmas?
