kriskaos - the US needs a bomber that it can base out of the US to attack targets over seas because we do not want to rely on airbases outside the US.
As for space based weapons, while they represent the ultimate highground, i do not believe that the US is ready to place the majority of its air
defence in space, both from a financial and technological standpoint.
This represents the best alternative to the US before we do put most of our trust in space.
