How is naming your team Bombers any better than what name they are replacing?

The Bombers name debate has been discussed.  Quite simply the name Bombers does not equate to designating groups of people with names that many people now believe are offensive.  People and things are quite different.  Regarding Bombers, one could argue that Bombers do good things to, i.e., water bombers that put out forest fires.  It's silly to make the comparison in my view.
