Kinda have too. They can't afford to replace destroyed aircraft and we (the United States) aren't going to hand them out like candy. We still operate the F-16s and F-15s that Israel relies on.

Makes sense. As Israel is America's stronghold in the Mid East, so is Japan in Eastern Asia. So getting top of the line gear is always a possibility (though not in the case of the F-22).

Like it...

Don't tell me you don't like to follow conspiracy theories every once in awhile. Sometimes it's fun to pretend they're real and then follow them down to their conclusions. I don't believe in Greek...

But does all of that outweigh the cost of the F-22? Israel just doesn't have the money. Russia can build all of the stealth planes it wants. But if they don't sell them, or if Country B isn't...

Doesn't matter what you wear for all I care. If running around naked works better...do it, I guess.

Speaking of wool...oh God. I had to do a Civil War project that lasted a few weeks in school...

I'm not 100% sure about this, but I thought Israel's surrounding atmosphere was fairly corrosive? I know there's a lot desert, but it also has a long border with the Med Sea. With all of that going...

Oh, I don't think the ASRAAM is any better than missiles of the same "class", just pointing out the UAE F-16s can carry weapons that most other F-16s don't. Probably meaning they made a deal with...

I've always wondered if there was a multirole "mafia" in the Air Force like there was for the fighters and bombers.

Seems people in the Air Force were placed in two extreme camps, each fighting...

It always amazes me that people still deride Stoner's AR-10/15 design. It seems it can really do everything if you wanted it too. Is it perfect in every situation? Probably not, but you can make...

That's why I said in law enforcement, specifically. Police catch hell in the US when they shoot some crackhead that ran at them a knife. Typical cop-haters will say "Why didn't they shoot in the...

Thank God, too. I would not want to have bad info to use when in a situation that could become life or death.

I think situations like that is why Tazers are being used much more nowadays in law...

That's a pretty stupid terrorist...trying to attack a patrol with a knife? Not a terrorist tactics expert or anything, but I'm sure they teach you to do something more effective.
