Of course, the real stupidity in this area was the retirement of the newer Peacekeepers due to slavish adherence to an un-ratified treaty with a country that no longer exists.
You mean the nuclear cruise missiles we dont have anymore since we finished decomissioning all their warheads a couple years ago?

It won't carry enough bombs to be called the Lemay.
