when ever i see on the war movies, the marines getting shot, who comes to the rescue? thats right 95% of the time it is an airstrike. On the Vietnam movies, when they are getting obliteraded who comes up and drops the napalm. On todays battlefield of gurrila warfare, when the army or marines cant take out a bunker or some kind of hold up and the people whom try to fight kill killed, whom comes to the rescue? thats right 95% of the time it is and f15 or 16 or 18. Depends what base is closest. Now it is true that it takes time to get there which is very very true becuase the usaf usaually has the base kind of far away. usually withing an hour flight. Now i am not dicing on the vets and the people in iraq at all. I highly respect that, really, most likly than anyone else. Just that i am tired of my friends saying that the usaf sucks so bad and they cant do anything. Well let me tell you how hard it is to pull a 7 g turn going about 700mph or more in a dogfight and doing it repeataly with out passing out then too keep fighting. So for the men and women in the air, sea, and land dont take it personal

Umm and how many times was the USAF fighting a nation with infact a large airforce that could counter it? In recent conflicts, No one that the USAF has been going up against lately has had anything better then old obsolet anti-air guns and rockets.

hummm maybe ur not very familiar with the term MRF. meaning multi role fighter. also meaning that they bomb,attack,fight,ext.......ext....... Now what you said about what the usaf goes against is just some old AA guns and old stuff nobody uses anymore. Well that is just dandy becuase the troops on the ground would suffer more losts if it werent for our AF. Becuase of our up-to-date technology we can take out the enemy alot more easier. For insance like on the f15- it has all weather capability,FLIR and LANTIRN. that is why {THE USAF KICKS ASS} thank you

Uh, how many times in the recent past have they actually encountered enemy aircraft? Pretty sure none.

The truth is that all branches of the military rely on one another.

yes they do. Actually in the Iraqi war they have encountered mybe 10 aircraft easily shot down. Now a stroy from an american fighter pilot on discovery wings channel soon to be the military channel. He said that the f15s would just fly around and the iraqi pilots wouldnt even get off the ground due to the f15s flying above their airbase. Once they get into the air the would just be shot down with in seconds. Now for other aircraft its different. The a10 for an example. They need the Guard to go in and lase the targets but now the f15 for example again can lase its own targets because of LANTIRN.

you don't understand do you? Most likely because you are too young, The USAF has not been going up against a nation with "airforce" that is to modern standard during the last 60+ years. Lets take iraq, when the USAF went into iraq, they were bombing for weeks before low altitude attacks started, and by time that happen, Most of iraq was a mess leaving only small pockets of army troops left to fight back with low cal anti-air guns and RPG's. And this is a case in most of the american wars since Korea. the USAF has not been going up vs a modern nation who is able to defend themself from aggression.

yes i do understand. Of course they are goin to avoid an AF that can defend itself better anyone would do it. But that doesnt mean that we wouldnt go against someone else such as china in order to defend ourselfs. Now we are getting away from what the point is. The point is that i am tired of hearin people that say the AF sucks. No they dont. Yes the ground war wins but what does the AF doing there in the first place

No you still don't understand. They are not avoiding it, they do not have a Airforce.
