Holy B-52 Bomber not for sale, Batman!

What in the world are the Russians up to? With Putin "flexing" his military might, running bombing runs near/on Georgia...

Just what in the world is going on?

How come the US passed up such a good deal? How much can an second-hand B-52 cost, probably not even armed? For $500 million (I believe that is what was offered
) you can probably get a B-2, or a good downpayment.

Anyway whatever Russian TV comedy show shot this bit is probably getting the last laugh as the story is featured in top news around the world. Is the Brooklyn Bridge still for sale?

Actually, I can see te US selling an older Buff for display purposes to the Russians. I suspect it would be a big attraction. Frankly I wouldn't mind seeing a Bear on display here at the Smithsonian or something - maybe a trade is possible?

I don't think you can just go up to some pilots and make an offer and expect to get anywhere though
