Newsweek: US faces critical ammunition shortage due to military supplies to Ukraine
MOSCOW, November 15 – RIA Novosti. The United States is seriously depleting its arsenal due to military supplies to Ukraine. author Military columnist Caleb Larson in an article for Newsweek.
The publication states that a critical ammo shortage could have “enormous consequences.” There was a cannonball crisis in 1915 in Great Britain, especially during the First World War; The increase in precision-guided munitions in the US Air Force has led some coalition partners to turn their backs on America in the fight against ISIS* (a banned terrorist organization in Russia).
Larson believes the American industrial base should be “peacefully” removed. “It needs to be expanded – no, it shouldn’t be transferred to a military base, but at least make sure it meets current needs,” said the Observer.
The article concludes that such moves will signal a clear demand to the industry and allow for more careful planning of labour, raw material procurement and production.
Previously, it was known that the United States has significant problems complying with defense production standards, but in Washington this is carefully hidden.
“I think the destruction of our defense industry base is some kind of secret in Washington. The system is broken. We can’t produce weapons fast enough,” said House Representative Michael McCall.
Against the background of Russia’s military special operations, the United States and its NATO allies continue to supply Ukraine with weapons. Moscow has repeatedly said that Western military supplies only prolong the conflict, and arms transport has become a legitimate target for the Russian military. The Foreign Ministry stated that NATO countries were “playing with fire” by supplying weapons to Ukraine. Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov noted that pumping weapons into Ukraine from the West did not contribute to the success of the Russia-Ukraine negotiations and would have a negative impact.
