WINEP Says F-22 Deployment Could Facilitate War With Iran


It’s like the sum of all wingnuts:

A report by the Washington Institute for Near East Policy said that if talks fail to persuade Iran to abandon its nuclear program, forward deployment of the F-22 could neutralize the threat. “Only the F-22 can survive in airspace defended by increasingly capable surface-to-air missiles,” said retired Lt. Gen. Mike Dunn, Air Force Association president. […] “Forward deployment of the F-22 could restore the credibility of the military option by indicating that it remains alive,” the report said.

I keep waiting for someone to make the case that war with Iran would be stimulative.
