American Fighter Jets Deployed Overseas. This Is Why

America is stepping up our commitment to protecting Europe from an encroaching Russia.

The Russians are badgering NATO allies and it is up to us to defend our friends!

Here is what we are doing about it:

Via CNN.

Demonstrating its commitment to a “free” and “secure” Europe, the United States deployed 12 F-15C Eagles and approximately 350 airmen to Iceland and the Netherlands on Friday, the Air Force announced.

U.S. aircraft units from the 131st Fighter Squadron at Barnes Air National Guard Base in Massachusetts and the 194th Fighter Squadron at Fresno Air National Guard Base in California will support NATO air surveillance missions in Iceland and conduct flying training in the Netherlands.
The F-15s are not the only package of American fighters being sent to Europe in an effort to deter further Russian aggression in the region.
In February, the U.S. said it will send six F-15s to Finland as part of Operation Atlantic Resolve, which the United States initiated in 2014 to reassure NATO allies after Russian military intervention in Ukraine. These aircraft are scheduled to deploy next month.

Could this mean eventual conflict with Russia?
I doubt it, but it is significant that we’re moving back to Cold War tactics to defend against Russian aggression.
Now Watch This:
Is this the right move to stand up to Russia? Share your thoughts!
