The kill ratios favoring the American fighters over the MiG fighters were 7 to 1 and 10 to 1 respectively-this from your own sources. For the Russian pilots to be at a 1:1 kill ratio with the American fighters, simple mathematics would require that the percentage of MiG fighters piloted by Russian pilots be only one seventh to one tenth of the total number of MiG fighters piloted in Korea-the rest would have to be piloted by the Chinese and North Koreans themselves. Of course, the percentage of Soviet pilots was much higher than that, so mathematically, the Soviet pilots' kill ratio was considerably less than 1:1.
Where are you getting figures for the percentage of Soviet pilots?
Have you finished grasping at straws yet?
Condemning Barack Obama for deliberately sabotaging the US armed forces is not grasping at straws.
In NO war have Russian fighters ever achieved anything close to a 1:1 kill ratio versus American made fighters, Russian pilots or not.
That is incorrect. Highly trained Soviet pilots were a match for American pilots.
You are trying to pretend that the US needs the F-22 to keep ahead of the Russians because they are breathing down our neck technologically,
No. I'm not worried about Russia at all. We need to keep up with other peer powers around the world.
and in fact they have never even been close to us.
That is incorrect. The Soviets were an even match for us during the Cold War.
The US has introduced the world's first fifth generation fighters and they leave the Russians behind in the dust.
Only because the Russians are no longer a major power. An F-35 couldn't shoot down a Mig-29 from the early 1980s.
Our allies are so impressed with the F-35 that they have ordered a whole slew of them.
The F-35 is a great ground attack plane. It has all of the ground attack capability that the F-117 had.
That doesn't make it useful for air-superiority missions.
Our air force is dominant over the Russians'.
Only because the Russians are no longer a credible power.
Unfortunately, thanks to Barack Obama, our air force is not a match for other peer powers in the modern world.
Which brings us to the original issue, which is that since Obama kept us ahead of the Russians with the F-35,
The F-35 is not what keeps us ahead of the Russians. An F-35 couldn't shoot down an early 1980s Mig-29. We're ahead of the Russians because the Russians are no longer a major power.
How do we repel Russian expansionism with this Manchurian Candidate in the White House?
No one is preventing the Europeans from giving heavy weapons to Ukraine so that Putin is too busy with the fighting there to think about invading the EU.
No one is preventing the Europeans from stationing heavy ground forces in Poland and the Baltics to deter a Russian invasion.
