Okay, he died instantly. If there were two F-16's, whathappened to the other pilot? He did not!?

I guess you should read the story, like I did. With such advanced radar and training, how did they get so close to each other while going at different directions and speed? Were they playing "chicken"?

I know we need manned aircraft, but quite a bit can be done with unmanned drones.

Our budget should be split equally between the two technologies.

Yes, we need to be able to kill more women and children from the safety of five thousand miles away.

Well, if that is your contribution to society, I vote we yank your ability to decide anything.

I believe there is a set of rules (Geneva something or other) that discusses fighting among civilians.........am certain you are not familiar with it if you support fighting among civilians.......but it addresses that issue.

Note: If you cannot follow the "rules", you might jeopardize the "people" you are "fighting for". Those "people" should realize that, and rise up and stop you.
AND - we can help. We can send unmanned vehicles over and destroy those you point out !!
