The U.S. military is reactivating old B-52 bombers that had been retired to the Air Force “Boneyard” base in Tucson, Ariz., and refurbishing them for future military use, Newsmax has learned.

Although it's not completely clear why Pentagon is trying to bolster the U.S. heavy bomber fleet, Iran, Russia, North Korea, and China are believed to be keeping a close eye on the development.
