Eagles do not bow to bears, I’m sure that NATO will not bow to Russia either! – US Air Force Secretary

Air Force Secretary Deborah James at the Paris Air Show stated that Russia was as the “biggest threat on my mind” while listing the greatest threat faced by the U.S. Air Force.

Air Force Secretary underlined the U.S. could deploy a squadron of F-22 Raptor fighter jets to Europe in response to the stepped-up aggression by Russia in the region.

“It’s extremely worrisome on what’s going on in the Ukraine. We’ve seen the type of warfare, which someone dubbed it hybrid warfare, which is somewhat new. So I would put that at the top of my list,” noted Deborah James.

Gen. Frank Gorenc, commander of U.S. Air Forces in Europe, said in the past, his command had not received the priority necessary to receive a theater security package because of pressing needs elsewhere.

“Prior to the Ukraine, we were not able to get theater security packages because of other priorities in the world, but this year we were able to prioritize two theater security packages,” he said.
