    The F-117 is not in service because it reached it's end of life. It flew from 1981 to 2008, about 26 years. All aircraft have lifetime stress limits. In order to continue flying past the stress limits they need to get new wings. There was no reason to spend the money to rewing all of the older F-117's when you can just put that money into the newer B-2, F-22, and F-35 that have more capability.

    Can I understand Korean or Japan? Every time I've been there I found that the people speak English very well.

    Victory over ISIS was not a US victory? Years of US aircraft dropping bombs on them and hellfire missiles fired from drones finally did the trick.

    US troops landed on Japanese held islands demolished by navy ships and aircraft? The Japanese had dug tunnel networks into Iwo Jima. The naval shelling did almost nothing to eliminate them. And at Normandy the naval shelling once again was almost entirely ineffective because the concrete bunkers were six feet thick.

    The US lacks good soldiers? We beat Japan and Germany and lost about 407,000 troops in WW2. Russia only had to fight Germany and lost between 8-11 million troops.

    The ancient Romans said that life is war? And what happened to them? In ancient Greece the Spartans were the best fighters but they lost to the Persians because they were outnumbered 1,000 to 1.

    My virtual GDP is like a computer game? Isn't having more money than your opponent better in computer games? Just because you don't have enough education to understand economics doesn't mean it doesn't really matter.

    Ha! B-52 are at service since 1948 and will be at service at least untill 2030.
    Do you believe that Japans and Koreans write their secret documents about their secret nuclear programs in English?
    First of all, Russian conception "smart pilot + dumb bombs" looks like much more effective than US one "dumb pilot + smart bombs", at least against militants. Second - it was not victory of US-troops. It was victory of Kurd mercenaries, supported by "coalition aviation".
    First, US join to fight against Germany just to help finish deadly wounded animal, absolutely same way as Soviet Union smashed Quantuns Army and force Japan to surrender. And Soviet "coup de grâce" was much more effective than US one.
    Wow! Hey, man, is it example of American education?
    Sometimes yes, sometimes no. I mean, that amount of gold in your World of Warcraft account does not correlate with your real life shooting skills. Game is game, reality is a something different.
    What sort of education do you have?

    The B-52 has been in service since 1952? The first series of B-52's were A models produced in 1952. The ones flying now are H models that were produced in 1962. Even so the B-52 is only kept around because they can mount cruise missiles on wing pylons so it can launch a total of 20 cruise missiles whereas the B-2 and B-1 can only hold a small number of internal cruise missiles.

    Do I believe that Japan and Korean write their secret nuclear programs in English? Having nuclear weapons opens the door to a nuclear war. Japan has seen enough of that. I think they would rather be invaded and completely taken over by the Chinese than exchange nuclear weapons with them. As for Korea, they know they don't need them because we will defend them, and if they attempted to develop nuclear weapons the US would not be happy about it and might pull our troops out of the country. You think like a primitive Russian. You think it's all about having nuclear weapons. No one can use them or they will be completely destroyed. There is no winner.

    ISIS defeat was not a victory for US troops? Sure it was. We didn't have to go in with massive ground troops. Every time they heard an aircraft they went running for cover.

    The US joined to fight Germany even though Germany was already wounded? Wounded by who? We joined WW2 on Dec 7th of 1941. German troops invaded Russia in June of 1941 and they were sweeping across your country on their way to Moscow and Stalingrad. It took you another two years to defeat the Germans in Stalingrad in February of 1943.

    Russia forced Japan to end the war? Russia was required by the Yalta Agreement to enter the war against Japan by 9 August of 1945. You waited to declare war on Japan until midnight on 8 August 1945. Two atomic bombs, the fire bombing of Tokyo, the annihilation of Japan's navy and mechant fleet and losing all of the territory they had captured and being completely surrounded by our submarines probably had something to do with the Japanese surrender.

    The Soviet "coup de grace" was more effective than the US one? Japan is now an economic miracle. So is South Korea and so is modern Germany because they are based upon the American economic system and American freedoms, not primitive Russian cabbage soup and cheese thrown from the back of a truck.

    Reality is different than video games? Money is money, and we have much more of it than you do.

    What sort of education do I have? Five years of college.

    Sure. That means, that B-52 is the good, useful plane, and F-117 is the bad, useless plane. It's uselessness as "stealth fighter" (conception described by Tom Clancy in his books and in herd of computer games and movies) was obviouse right after its creation even for American generals. It's uselessness as "light subsonic bomber" became obviouse right after few conflicts.
    Yes. Do you believe, that Japans and Koreans write their secret documents in English?
    And what? Having nuclear weapon is the only way to be independent state in this modern world.
    Ha! Bro, you know less than nothing about Japan and Japans.
    Ok. Lets imagine that USA was divided and occupied. North part was occupied by Soviets (Russians, Chines, Cubanians), but now is almost free (at least they have no occupation forces on their territory) , and have their own nuclear weapon, South part is occupied by Latinoamericans and Japans and "defended" by their forces. You live in South part. Will you fight against Japans and Latinos, will you make secret help to North American States?
    Ha! Nucleophobia detected. Its myth, nothing more.

    So, its the victory of pilots, not of ground troops.

    Deadly wounded by Russia. USA start actions of Second Front in Europe only since June of 1944.

    Yes.
    Yes. Concentration of forces, then - sudden strike.

    Bla-bla-bla. They have been continue to fight. You drop bombs, you demolish all their big cities, but they were ready to fight even in case of American invasion on islands. And only when Soviet Union had smashed their Kwantung Army - they understood that resistance is useless.
    Yes. Few days after Russia joined war, and Japans capitulated.
    First: it was not victory of US-troops (they are useless weaklings), it was victory of US politics and businesemen.
    Second: Japan is a miracle only from the American point of view.
    Your money is just a virtual numbers in computers. Even gold coins from Indian tale "The Golden Anthelope", written by Kipling, means more.

    And what did you learn in college? Safe sex, tolerance and cocktail-making? You don't know languages, you don't know history, you don't know chemistry, physics or other tech, you don't know literature, you don't even know stupid movies.
