Taiwan sees bid to buy F-16s from U.S. as "hopeless" Taiwan's parliamentary speaker, Wang Jin-pyng, says efforts to purchase F-16 fighter jets from the U.S. are "hopeless." The official's comments follow a report that the U.S. has told Taiwan that it will not sell it the F-16s. However, Taiwan's defense ministry plans to continue to acquire the jets. "We will continue to push for our request to buy the F-16C/Ds, and we will not give up on that," said David Lo, a ministry spokesman. Aug 22, 2011
