    Actually, I wonder if Iran might have shot them down and we don't want to admit that! This COULD get interesting.

    Yep, if they have something that will hit hornets all of the sudden, someone/some country is in big trouble!

    Bad news, but not as bad as being shot down:

    The latest google news is saying it was a collision.

    I doubt the terrorists have anything sophisticated enough
    to reach our first-line fighter-bombers.

    I do recall the Serbs getting a Stealth. Hope we have
    that problem straightened out by now!

    True, but it has also been hypothesized that the Chinese helped them. Supposedly, believe it or not, by using something as simple as cellular technology. It is believed that radiation emitted from standard mobile/cell phones creates a static field of radiation around cities and population centers etc, that can be "altered" by a stealth type aircraft flying through it. This "alteration" of the radiation pattern is believed to be "visible" on radar under certain circumstances. Again, this is supposedly how the Chinese were able to assist the Serbs in shooting down that Stealth fighter. It has also been hypothesized that is reason we "accidently" bombed the Chinese embassy!
