At a breakfast with reporters Wednesday, Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Norton Schwartz explained why he expects the bomberís sticker price to stay at $550 million a pop.




unhappycamper comment: A frickking F-22 costs $418 million dollars. B-2 bombers cost $2.4 billion dollars each. Shit - a Predator drone costs around $36.3 million dollars. Those Hellfire missiles we use to kill 'insurgents' costs $160 grand.

Where do you think you can find a bomber for a lousy $550 million dollars?

Don't bogart that joint, my friend.
