Do we really need another bomber that we'll use a handful of times? Is the B2 so out-dated that it needs to be replaced? Does it not do the job as it is?

I feel like this new bomber is another example of wasted taxpayer dollars.

SP5 Mark Kuzinski - Wait and see isn't a great plan when we're spending billions or trillions on something. I'd hope that there is something out there that has that info available.

SP5 Mark Kuzinski - At $600,000,000 EACH, I think we can find better things to spend some of that money on - If we bought 99 bombers instead of the "minimum" of 100, we could fund 15,000 full-ride four-year scholarships for kids in the United States.

Our military is already far and away better than the next guy - and we spend more than twice of what the next guy does already.

We aren't even in the TOP 10 in education around the world - I bet 15,000 scholarships for qualified students in the country might help close that gap. Imagine the things we could achieve if we refocused just a little bit on education rather than warfighting.

We are spending the treasures of the nation on war rather than on our future. That will ensure that war IS the future. We're on the wrong road.

Thanks for letting us know SP5 Mark Kuzinski. The B-21 Raider name reminds of the names of WWII aircraft the B-17 Flying Fortress. B-24 Liberator, B-25 Mitchell, and the B-26 Marauder.
