the downside is , with the russian long wave radar system that can track stealth *the hole in the air* method - they could detect a large force coming in - and launch when teh B-2`s get within range of there launch

We can detect missile launches this is what triggers the response, not planes taking off that are invisable to radar.

The cruise missile you are refering to was known as "Senior Prom" and the ATS thread (started by yours truly) can be found Here

- Why would you assume a mass launching of those (originally intended hoardes of) B2's (along with the necessary tankers etc) would go unremarked and unnoticed?
You are describing something that would have required huge planning and enormous effort to accomplish.

ummm wrong they (USSR) have quite few sat flying that can detect activity in airbases during the height of the cold war and not to mention human intelligence network in US and Europe and across the globe . an attack that will consist of hundreds if not thousands of birds and i don’t mean commercial ones I mean fighters tankers AWACS and other assets all in the air. This would have triggered multiple alarms across the board. which means immediate launch of every thing they got. their was/is no credible way any one could get away with first strike.
