    very unlikely as Taliban need to get too close to hit B-52 . But if true Taliban will face serious consequences.

    So day has come that stone age people with swords & stones claiming to shot down F35. Taliban just want to scare people even with trolling.

    Dont you think that facing consequences has passed its due date. Today US in more of a hurry to get out than Taliban wanting US to get out. So if the news is true, it will be downplayed by the US and business will go on as usual.

    It must have fallen on its own. This is very unlikeky. Also why does usa use stratofortess in Afghanistan even now? War is pretty much over.

    1. It was not F35
    2. Don't forget these backward ppl defeated a super power already.
