Fearing Russian ‘Aggression,’ US Deploys Jets to Eastern Europe

In the latest sign of Washington’s ongoing war against Russian “aggression,” the Pentagon stationed a pair of F-22 Raptors in Romania on Monday.

Defense giant Lockheed Martin ceased production of the F-22 stealth fighter in 2009, citing technical difficulties with, among other things, the plane’s oxygen supply system. But last week, the US House of Representatives announced that the Air Force could soon resume the program.

“…In light of the growing perception that the US military is losing its technological edge to adversaries like Russia and China, Congress has expressed keen interest throughout this year’s budget season in restarting the line,” Defense News reported.
