I think that the concept of Boeing and MD teaming up is very
interesting, not so much in the end result, but in the fact that it
might happen (or even be considered).

While Boeing might end up buying MD alltogether (military and
commercial), there might be solutions in between.

For instance, MD might simply become one of the many suppliers for
Boeing. MD may or may drop its own products.

Boeing recently purchased Rockwell for its military activities.
If Boeing were to buy MD outright, how would the US military/govt
react to this further concentration of the main suppliers for its
military contracts ?
