At the beginning of this debate you were claiming the marines were in rubber boats and every one of the photos that were with your mail do not show the Marines in rubber boats! If you cannot get a small thing like that right how reliable is anything you may have to say on the subject?

And yet you never provided photos of a downed B-2 and or parts/bodies from it. In addition you provided no proof that NATO lost more than three fixed wing and two rotary aircraft. (I question if they where even NATO aircraft )

Sort of like the "Innocent T-55 crews and soldiers murdered by Evil Danish Panzers at Tuzla"?

...i will say this, the Serbian mobile air defences punched well above their weight in the Balkans conflict, i think they did their service proud with the way they remained a constant headache throughout the conflict....

WTF? Dijordjie, did you even read the article? The somalis first attacked a danish freighter, with no success, and then when british naval personell tried to board their dhow they opened fire on them.

If that isn't piracy then what is?
