Four U.S. F-22 stealth fighters flew across South Korea Wednesday to an air base near Seoul where they are being deployed in a show of force following Pyongyang's nuclear and missile tests.Escorted by eight other U.S. and South Korean fighter jets, the radar-evading aircraft landed at Osan Air Base near Pyeongtaek City, 70 kilometers (45 miles) south of the border with North Korea. Last month, a U.S. B-52 heavy bomber flew over South Korea in the first military muscle flexing in response to North Korea's fourth nuclear test a few days earlier.The military moves come as South Korea is due to begin talks with the U.S. this week on the possible deployment of an advanced U.S. missile defense system which China and Russia have warned could undermine stability in East Asia.
