Interesting, will do.

I don't know Gates, so I can't defend him, it's just that most people here seem to instinctively hate him. Which I find weird, I mean, he is doing some good.

And if I was trying to do good with a shitload of my own money, I would like total control of where it went, not just hand it off to some foundation.

Well, is the B-52 still being produced? According to wiki it isn't. The fuselages will be pretty old by then.

The C-130 J that is now being produced, while basicly the same shape (it's longer), is also equipped with new avionics, engines, instruments and pretty much everything else, so it might not be a great example.

The question is whether they are proposing to use the same old fuselages or if they want new completely new B-52s

Well, Lobasomething apparently subscribes to the belief that all soldiers are mindless robots without consciences. It should go without saying that this isn't true. There is such a thing as illegal orders, and it's every soldier's duty to not follow orders he or she believes are illegal.
