    We still have 187 of them, and they're going UNUSED in both the wars that we have.

    They should be going unused in Iraq and Afhganistan.  The F-22 is an air superiority fighter.

    It is an aircraft with a lot of issues and, IMHO, an unforgivably high price tag.  But the fact that it's not being used in Iraq and Afghanistan is merely indicative of its role as an aircraft designed to establish/maintain air superiority and is equipped to defeat advanced anti-aircraft systems.
