The Future is a Flying Wing?

The news has come out that the Chinese are considering (and likely to select) a flying wing for their H-X program, their 'first' strategic bomber.  Earlier in the month, the Russians supposedly selected a flying wing for their PAK-DA program.  The US, of course, flies the B-2

You have to wonder what is being worked on for the Long Range Strike-B (or whatever its name is this week).  Its supposed to be introduced in 8 years, barring whatever sequestration does to the program, so something has to be flying already.  What is it?  Is it, too, a flying wing?
