Granpappy bought a really big bomb truck and it is still running good. Sure the BUFF can stand a few upgrades, just the same as the F-22 (the latest and greatest). Also, I'm sure we can blow another trillion dollars on a new plane that can do the same job, but our welfare recipients would be devastated in losing their "God Given Right" to waste that money on themselves. Neither the B-1 or B-2 can replace the BUFF and until the replacement plane is in a squadron the BUFF should keep flying. Heck, with four new high efficiency jets, new e-systems, even new high efficiency wings that bombbay can fly for another fifty years. Aren't internal bombs considered stealthy, these days??
