Retire the B-1B

I LOVE the BONE, but it has no use (and my buddies fly it). In a tactical capacity, it's too big to bed-down without runway improvements, etc. Since PGM (Precision Guided Munitions) came out, it really doesn't do a role any better than an F-15E (1 bomb, 1 kill) and in a strategic role... well, I don't think we're ever going to nuke anyone but if we do we have the B-2A and ICBMs still (and TLAMS). Great jet, but it's so expensive to fill a role designed to fight a nuke war against the USSR.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
