You don't need stealthy F-35's to take out ISIS. AC-130 gunships are the weapons of choice for adversaries without significant anti-air capability. And that's the problem: gearing up for a war we're not likely to ever fight, or if we do then a few dozen stealth aircraft aren't going to last long anyway.
