I am not against you, never have been.
I have always portrayed my comments to your topics and postings with respect, never intentionally seeking to incite you.
We are both patriotic, thus are inherently prideful, probably to a fault.
I can remember a time when I was one of but a very small minority on this board that backed this current war on Iraq. Can you imagine the amount of rhetoric filled hateful u2us I received over this?

Yeah, thats all well and good, but being the most important aspect of this whole incident is being left out and purposely disregarded, where skippytjc and COOL HAND made mention of:
The F-117 shot down had been running a flight path that had been previously run over and over on a number of previous F-117 missions.
Your quite sure of this?
Is it because the US Air Force is worried about getting another taken down, or simply the application of adjustment, where lessons learned are re-applied and adapted? Note that air doctrines are not set in stone, and are subject to change via lessons learned from past mistakes.
It hasnt happened since because the F117's havent been used against an enemy with the capability of shooting one down.
But it seems apparent. The F117 has seen service in Iraq and maybe Afghanistan...neither country has as sophisticated an air defence as was (is) present in Serbia.
