Sas23 is right, The 67 war was started by Israel only because it was a nessacary move, It was either us or them, so instead of us getting a suprize attack on us, we did it to them, we attacked at the perfect time when the gaurds and pilots were either , just waking up or switching gaurd shifts, it was becuase of this attack that the war wasent as long as it could of lasted. And Sas dont forget that in this attack we took out 4 airforces in 1 day.
And Sas, The Mirage was not reverse engineered thats correct, the Kfir on the other hand was. From the blue prints of the mirage Israel came out with there own version called the Kfir.
As I state agian, The US and Israel werent really the best friends back in 67, and agian, it was an accidental attack, the ship was in the wrong place at the wrong time. There isnt anything you can do about it now, it happend thats it, whatever else we say wont change the facts.
