Objet :  Trupele de ocupatie (de care am scapat in 1958) revin sub alt steag
Romania nu poate trai "singurica"... 

Fata de vremurile de demult, cind ele erau acceptate de nevoie sau 
intimpinate cu oaste, trupele de ocupatie ale imperiilor sint acum 
invitate (rugate) sa intre in tara. 
Ca sa ne apere... in timp ce slujim cu devotament noii stapini.

The Romanian defence ministry said Wednesday it had signed an accord 
with American defence manufacturer Northrop Grumman as part of plans for 
a relocation of US airbases to Romania. 
The document was part of technical discussions with Washington on "the 
possible installation of American bases in Romania," said Defence 
Minister Ioan Mircea Pascu. 
If the United States decides favourably, "this memorandum will enable us 
to discuss concrete details with this company," he said. 
Northrop Grumman Corporation, a 28-billion-dollar global defence company 
headquartered in Los Angeles, is Washington's official partner in the 
setting-up and runnning of military bases. 
It provides technologically advanced, innovative products and services 
in systems integration, defence electronics, information technology, 
advanced aircraft, shipbuilding and space technology. 
With employees and operations in 25 countries, Northrop Grumman serves 
US and international military, government and commercial customers. 
American officers and technical experts last month visited the Romanian 
town of Constanta on the Black Sea to examine existing infrastructures 
and facilities at the port and nearby airbase of Mihail Kogalniceanu, 
already used by US forces during the war against Iraq. 
The Pentagon has been working for some years on the reorganisation of 
American units so that they can be deployed rapidly in the event of 
crises in any country. 
It is also considering setting up bases in two other former Soviet bloc 
states, Bulgaria and Poland. The last is already a member of NATO.
