I never said otherwise. However today BVR most important aspect of air battle.This logic is flawed.
BVR is only one aspect of battle. It cannot be the entire battle.
Furthmore if u think that WVR combat is meneavering like in Top Gun movie, you are very wrong. Most of battles are simply hit and run. One who sees first hits first. So stealth gives huge advantage in WVR as well.
Finally even in classical dogfight from movies, DAS with AIM-9X give huge advantage to F-35, allowing firing missiles in 360 grad sphere.
Kopp, fighter maphia and other F-35 haters ignore all these.
