Weatherkiss: Arkanaut: Last year, F-22 Raptors, B-2 stealth bombers, and B-52s were used in the drills. The B-2s are capable of carrying nuclear weapons.Pretty sure B-52's are nuclear capable too -- they were built for the job.Fred Schneider is kind of a beanpole, I don't see him being able to carry a nuke.

Cymbal: b2theory: Cymbal: Got to justify that exorbitant military budget somehow.Look at the total casualty count from WW2. If we assume that total US military hedgomony makes it impossible for a country to use its military for any gain, you could say its worth every cent.Even if that were true, which I very seriously doubt, you can't tell me the US needs to spend as much as the next ten largest nations combined? That's just absurd.
