Your pseudonym should actually be "thinking fecal".
The Prowler has been around for a long time because of its unique effectiveness. It serves as a critical asset in any strike package in its role as a SEAD platform, something you quite obviously know nothing about.
Your laughable posts serve as an illuminating commentary on the sad state of the public education system in this country. Fortunately, the Marine Corps and the Navy have intelligent, dedicated, professional and patriotic aviators and technicians operating and maintaining these aircraft defending this Republic and protecting ungrateful simpletons like you. Simpletons who don't deserve that protection.
Oh I,m quite sure everyone does a marvelous job maintaining useless jets that need to be scrapped and doing their duty just as best as they can, to what end? Nothing more than expanding US capitalist ends and pissing off the rest of the world, why do you think 9/11 happened in the first place?

Did anyone ever tell you that the EA-6B has been around since well before GWB started howling about WMD's, so what's your point? No EA-6B has ever been lost in wartime, but dozens have crashed in peacetime, and one took out a gondola and killed 20 civilians in Italy.
Electronic warfare does not "identify" anything. It just screws up electronics, which is not a recommended means of "power projection" in friendly metro areas like Charlottesville or Seattle (near where I live).
