I get it.
When Foreign allied troops were found to be responsible for a US soldiers death in Iraq the investigation was halted and evidence was covered up.
The reason given was they did not want to embarrass their allies (the Polish forces).
If they will lie and hide such things that are important to their own people of course the will have no problem hiding things with rather more strategic impact like the shooting down of F-117s or B-2s.
If we had a real media in the west instead of the corporate stooges we have today then their might be some real independent investigations, but we have no such things.
Don't be upset that I believe only one F-117 was shot down... I have been wrong before about a lot of things, and I am not believing the US because I respect them... rather because I don't believe they would be able to successfully cover something like that up... someone would squeal... I hope.
I has no big impact when you speak about 1 or 2 or even 10 where destroyed this wouldn't change the reality at all, what happened, happened.
The only difference if it was 1 or 10 is a forum dick contest, but if we would speak reality the perception would change and a morality downer for western militaries and especially US, if we would reveal all casualties and losses of American soldiers and warmachinery, because today we have a such profound US military propaganda that they build almost or undestructable magical Depleted Uranium, Chobham and other magic words for naive fanboys, this would have a significant change also on political level.
The US MIC and Military have a tradition of Propaganda through Hollywood where USA is always the good guy and they will send 100 soldiers just to rescue one, that they only fight against unjustice and dictatorships, that Military hardware of the US is the highest technology the world has ever seen and every US grunt has all that stuff available at all time, that Tanks are the best, Jets are the best, Ships are the best and has no opponents with even similiar technology or effeciency. In every movie where anything that has action scenes or the Military in it, you see big screens almost Holographic, that every little meaningless soldier just can call in an airstrike for any kind of threat....etc.
You all seen this propaganda movies, you all know they portray their enemies as ville terrorists,nazis,communists and whatever.
This is all Propaganda that has been "educating" generations since the WW2 and how blatant it often is, it is still striking effective in manipulating peoples view of the "reality".
If we would reveal all those losses and counter all those profound infested propaganda in peoples heads, the will of everydays US citizen would drop to send people to war, other militaries would also have the opportunity to actually use same propaganda to demorilize those who are so eager for war which are mainly naive fools.
The point is the clearer the picture of war is the lower the will for war is. And Americans have never seen a real war on their soil, they are brainwashed since decades that USA has almost no losses and the other one is always the bad guy so lets kill him.
This is a result of a society that has been brainwashed and artificially addled by the political system, for empirial reasons.
