    The United States sent two F-22 warplanes to Romania for the first time.

    CNN reports that the F-22 Raptors, two of the world’s most advanced warplanes that can travel at twice the speed of sound, were sent to Romania as part of a NATO training exercise to demonstrate how quickly U.S. support can move to a forward operating base. The planes landed at Mihail Kogalniceanu Airport on Monday, and flew back to Britain a few hours later.

    But CNN also says the move was part of a show of strength for the U.S. and NATO allies in the Black Sea region where Russia is building up its military presence.

    U.S. Ambassador to Romania Hans Klemm told reporters Monday that the United States is committed to security in the region after “the aggression by Russia that has brought so much instability to this part of the world over the past two to three years.”

    Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014, throwing the area into unrest.

    Great. They send the plane with DEFECTS that are well documented. I do not think the oxygen issue has been fully mitigated.

    The United States is the biggest baddest motherfucker that ever did roam this earth, EVER. This is indisputable. The world acknowledges this, except for 1/2 this retarded country.

    It got a lot of flak originally but its turned out to be the best stealth fighter plane in the world.
    The US would have been better off building more of these than the F-35.
    The F-22 could have been adapted for the Navy and Marines.

    The F-23 would have been an even better aircraft but politics killed it...

    As one general once said, quantity has a quality all its own.

    Just ax the Germans circa 1941-1945.

    Anyone can be the biggest, baddest mother fucker for a time when you are irresponsible...then the bills come due. The US's "superiority" is unsustainable. What happens when you've pissed off the world, and can no longer afford to control it?
