Why USA are sending spies to steal Rusian technologies? lol. Besides, a lot of Russian sientists had left Russia and worked in USA. For example stealth technology is a Russian invetion. That`s why our radars can see your stealth without any problems. You westerners are really sorry people. The best people in Amarica had always been emmigrants. It`s strange that in one or two generations they becomes stupid fat morons. There`s something in the air of Amarica I guess. lol.
Are you dense or what? Please give me the name of the Russian stealth aircraft. Oh that's right, you can't because they have none! Here's a news flash for you Skippy, the first recognized aircraft with stealth capabilities due to reduced cross-section design was the SR-71. Built in the 60's sport. And as for US aircraft that are stealth? Hmmmm, let's see..SR-71, F-117, F-22 Raptor, B-2 Spirit (Bomber) and F-35 Lighting II. I would love to talk about the Russian PAK FA T50 but alas there are only 3 of them that have made a total of 16 flights between them so we can't really call it a production aircraft can we? So now G tell us of all the wonderful stealth aircraft Russia has. I have named off 5 production aircraft from the US. If the US stole all the technology from Russia there must be more Russian stealth aircraft, right? Tell us all about them. Your argument is pathetic. Never come to a gunfight with a knife. Next time I suggest you be a bit more prepared if you're going to make stupid statements like that.

Oh BTW Skippy, the first "Stealth" aircraft was built by the Germans in WWII. It was called the Horten HO-229 flying wing. So much for Russia inventing stealth. The only contribution made by Russia was a computer program called "Echo 1", not a radar system Sport, and no, Russian radar can't detect US stealth aircraft. If it could then why are the Russians desperately trying to develop the T50 to try to compete with the F-22 and F-35? Again it will be too little too late. By the time the aircraft is ready newer technology will have already come out to upgrade the US models already in service. Any other military hardware you'd like to make a fool out of yourself discussing?

According to the press, Russia sent all it's ARMY FIRE TRUCKS TO COMBAT the fires. ALL 300 OF THEM!. Probably about the amount of a small USA town's compliment of fire trucks. At least it keeps their army occupied, and what can they steal? Charcoal?.
It's really sad about the forest fires. There was a picture in the paper yesterday of a musclebound man sitting looking helplessly at the fire with a basin of water at his feet. I think it's safe to say that once started these fires are near enough impossible to put out wherever in the world they happen.

You are a bafoon. If russia is producing the best scientists, engineers, etc, what the fck are they doing sending spies to the US whose main goal is technology theft moron?
Then who is Edmond Poup an American citizen who was trying to steal Russian technology of Shkval missile at 2000?

Years ago a Russian wrote a paper theorizing that planes could reduce their detectability, but the Russians never took it seriously, and it was in no way the precursor to modern stealth aircraft, but it surely started some rumors on Topix!

Even in WWI efforts were made to use a transparent fabric covering for aircraft! I'd also add that many of our drones are quite stealthy, from the Beast of Khandahar to the Predator. Stealth is very expensive technology and Russia can ill afford a fleet of stealth aircraft...nor can we, for that matter. The F-22 has flown not one single mission in the Gulf due to its delicate nature...at 200 million each.

Yes! I just read that more fires have broken out. A forest fire is a very dangerous thing, and very difficult to put out.. And, it causes mindless damage. I live in a forest, and that is our biggest fear. Even though our Forest Fire Prevention people have quite an organized plan, fires can move fast and many times it is difficult to fight them because of the dense woods. I do feel compassion for these people who have lost everything. And it only takes minutes to do so. It is a traumatic thing.

This is true that the F-22 hasn't been used in the Gulf. It hasn't been needed there. The F-117 and B-2 have been used there extensively in the past. The cost is VERY high for this technology, yes. But it's a move to the future and is unavoidable. Remember what the cost of the first VCR? What do they cost now? All new technology has a high cost in the beginning. The whole point of the post was in reaction to the comments "G" made. Nothing more.

Living proof---No country is suffering a shortage of undereducated loons. Russia covers nearly a dozen time zones and seven million sq miles which will include nearly every size and type of city, town, or village. A hundred and fifty million people with a higher educational system ought to produce a few scientists. Sadly, it is true they stole from and starved to death, some ten million Ukrainians. They also lost forty million to Hitler so-- it takes a few generations to get heads back on straight---Now my country is going communist--We Texans will secede!

What is with russian planes entering Canadian airspace? Putin wants a nuke from NATO up his ass!!!!!

PS Those planes could have been more useful distiguishing fires in russia instead of flying thousands of miles to Canada?
