One need only substitute "5th generation aircraft" with "nuclear weapons" and the validity of the original argument is shown.What would make sense is if we got more such 5th generation aircraft regardless of our relations with China, but then again I don't have that brilliant DC mindset.
Those who do not remember history are condemned to repeat it, said a famous writer called Santiana. We did have the best and most bombers in the 50's, but that only forced the other side to up the ante with nuclear missiles.
Lets also not forget that the Secretary of US Defense is a Republican. I am sure he would have backed up the FB-23 if that's what was needed in 2020.
