American soldier develops strange Serbian friendship..

09 Jan

The F117 Nighthawk stealth fighter jet has had a successful history for the United States military… It was first used in our invasion of Panama in 1989 and has flown hundreds of successful missions in many wars since then. Only one F-117 was ever shot down and guess where and when that happened???

On March 27th, 1999 …. Serbian army Colonel Zoltan Dani was able to detect the “invisible” plane and launched several missiles. One successfully hit the plane. The pilot of the plane, Dale Zelko, was fortunate to be able to eject from the plane and land safely in the Serbian wilderness. The United States Marine Corp was able to rescue him before he was captured by Serbian forces.

Twelve years after this happened Dani and Zelko were reunited. They are making a documentary called “The Second Meeting” that will be completed in 2012. It recalls the strange meeting and friendship between the missile colonel and pilot that was shot down by him. It is a heartwarming story that shows anyone can forgive and forget!! We can form friendships in the strangest places. The two are friends to this day!!! Check out this website for more info….

    The most ironic part of the story is the Dani is Hungarian and Zelko is of Hungarian origin….very strange coincidence!

    Charles: Did you know that we have been in slmost every war that happend? Not by our choise, but because we were difendint our country! And because of that we have great tactic`s how to win, its now in our gen`s! Find out more about our history and it will be clear`er! We always fought for freedom against many times more powerfull oponent, and in the end we win!

    Although this may seem like a nice story of forgivness, it is not! This movie is being made for one purpose and one purpose only: to further brainwash the Serbian people into thinking that the US agressors were not our enemy, that ravaged our land, killed our children, occupied Kosovo, and poisoned our soil with nuclear weapons, but our friends, who rescued us from “evil” Milosevic (I am not a fan of him) and brought democracy to us! And why? Simply, to pull Serbia into NATO more easily, and use our soldiers for their dirty work around the world, same as French, German, UK, Croat soldiers and many others… Just to be clear, I do not hate anyone who is American, but I do hate the enslaving system that the US goverment is practicing since WW 1, and this is not a made up story, it is a FACT! USA is the Rome of the 21st century, it is unfortunate that nobody sees that!
