What really ticks me off about this is that we’ve sunk all the major R&D costs for developing the F22, which would chew up the JSF for lunch, let alone the J20. It shows corruption and/or complete ignorance of basic air supremacy doctrine by our “leaders.”

It’s really simple: Build a ton of F22’s (which Obastard killed, no shock there). If you get into a conflict, they clear the skies. Then you can run 40+ year old B52’s, fairly competent F18s, A10s, whatever, and own the ground.

But no, they want to sink a fortune into some “do it all” committee built frankenjet. Idiots. Or corrupt. No other options.

The J-20 shows the need for a lot of good airplanes.... of which the F-35 isn’t one. It’s an adequate aircraft, but not worth it’s cost.

How about simply building a better stealth aircraft detection system and prepare to shoot down all comers? A whole lot cheaper and better.
