People said the same things about the B-2 fleet, yet it has seen combat in every major American conflict seen since it was put into service.
The B-2s cost ten times what the F-22s will, per each. They also carried much more advanced tech for the time they were introduced than the F-22 does now [considering how much tech has advanced in that time].
Then again, one must keep in mind that there is considerable weight to the theory that each B-2 has an integrated 500 ton nuclear device for self-destruct, in the event that it should be lost over unfriendly territory.
But of course, we could do the same thing with the F-22s...
