China is no chance but India already have their hands full, don't think they have the budget for another carrier.

The F-35B isn't going to be cancelled, there is too many countries depending on it and its capabilities make it irreplaceable (in the next 20 years).

The A and C can be dropped, as long as the US wants to continue to use 1960 designs for the next 20 years.

The F-35 is a short range aircraft, if they want to start a war with China (which they will lose no matter what) they a new aircraft like the J-20 will be needed and its a completely different requirement.

The F-35 does what it does and its nearly ready, talk of cancelling is stupid at this stage.
