But how can you say they're still good on conventional warfare? They certainly used to be, but recently (i.e. post-Vietnam) I can't say they've ever been tested against an organized and relatively modern military. Iraq? The Taliban in Afghanistan?
The closest they came were in Serbia. They didn't do too well there; rather preferred bombing mostly from Italian bases. They simply would not dare ground operations against such an organized and recently-tested (wars with Croatia) military.
I'm not saying they aren't. I'm just saying they won't do conventional warfare anymore...
