That is just silly talk. If you bothered to look, you would have seen that Boeing is the second largest defense contractor. The commercial business (737, 747, 777, 787, etc.) is about half of the total revenue. You are suggesting that a company that is crucial to our national defense should go under because of an issue with one of their several commercial planes? That makes a lot of sense.

Boeing SHOULD go under!
