"Our fighter pilots at least have some military experience."

Not any more than Russian pilots.

"Russia is screwed in any air war."

Untrue. Russia has the advantage of large numbers of missile silos left over from the Cold War.

"Navy-wise, US wins any engagement, hands down."

Pointless. Not only is this a nation where naval power isn't important, but modern ships are easily destroyed by aircraft or standoff attack missiles.

"Land-wise, US wins yet again thanks to superior training, superior soldiers, and superior equipment and superior support."

Funny, I can think of a certain conflict the US is part of in which all that means dick. Now take that same conflict, double the manpower on the enemy side, and have every single one armed to the teeth. No, the US would be screwed six ways from Sunday in such an engagement.

Your jingoism is amusing. Try to get your facts from something other than the Military Channel, mkay?

"Besides, Russia stands no chance against any US plane. Their Migs, first off, need to get close range. We have a significant advantage in that our lowest tier fighters can launch missiles at several times the distance."

Not true. Modern Russian fighters have an impressive stand-off attack range, and are very good at ambushes.

"The MiG 29 gets utterly annihilated by any jet in the US military."

Bull. The MiG-29 is a very capable craft. It's that sort of `Our technology is the best!` thinking that led to a rude shock when F-86 Sabres first encountered MiG-15s in Korea.

By the way: These folks aren`t Russian. I lived in Georgia for two years, and let me tell you- these guys *HATE* the Russians.
