Claiming that Russian equipment was flawed and that the Russians missiles would fail on launch. I asked you to prove that assertion. Instead you deflected by moving the goalposts to:
Now claiming that we would simply launch a strike by stealth bombers on them. I have pointed out that we only have 20 B-2's. Let's see where you move the goalposts to next, shall we.
BTW, we have never used the B-2 in airspace protected by an integrated air defense network protected by phased array radars. Our own allies have stated in the past that they have detected the B-2, and while they haven't achieved a lock on, it would only take getting a single fighter into the area to shoot them down.
