The jets probably come with a massive maintenance/upgrades contract which is worth 3 times the value to the US.

Oldest trick in the book, give some tin pot country a load of gear as a 'gift' then charge them ridiculous amounts of money to keep the gear working.

Then if they default on the contract, bomb them.
