The Iraqi air force under Mr. Saddam were hopeless!
Well... if they can do a "八軍联姦" of Iraq as they did China in the 18th and 19th century and, imposes a "No Fly Zone" on the country and they (Iraqis) can't do f'kall about it, then you know how much muscle Saddam's military apparatus really have -- not much that is...
Of course, when the Korean war was on, they had full Chinese backing and support from the Russians while no one intervened in Iraq and that's as different as apples and oranges...
In the Korean War, Chinese-Korean-Russian pilots were still fighting at "American Propaganda" odds of 1 down Super Sabre for 7-9 Mig-15's! There we have it COURAGE of the Chinese-Korean-Russian pilots! No surprise the American Regime were defeated, forced to propose a truce! After Vietnam, rest his history!
Actually, according to studies released by the US, the reason the Sabers fared better again was because of technology. It was said in a Public Channel documentary was that "INSULATIONS" inside the fuselage of the Sabers soaks up the fuel after the Saber was hit and that drastically increased its survival rate. MiG-15 don't have this luxury hence catches fire soon as it was hit by enemy fire.
Like the Argentinians, their Navy, RAN, tails between their legs, and left the Argentinian marines defenseless, without supplies. Fortunately the Argentinian Air Force had guts! - Yet! The Royal Navy was first class, rest is history!
Argentina fought back fang and tooth. Saddam's merry mens never did that. They retreat way way before the Americans were even near them. His Mother of All Republican Guards didn't account for much either -- they went missing leaving Saddam to the environment. Saddam sends it fighters to Iran for safekeeping while Argentina engaged the Brits and turn a couple of British destroyers into oceanic relics of the Atlantic Ocean along with a couple of live nukes on board as I had heard...
There's a saying, Draken, one American soldier = 100 Arab, 200 South Asians, and 10 Vietnamese and as technology plays a part, you then know how much an Arab soldier is compared to that of a Korean...
Yes, we East Asians fight back but Saddam's men ran and deserted their people exactly as how CKS ran and deserted Nanjing way back...
