STRATEGIC ASSESSMENT- America should concentrate on an economy that has gone bankrupt and doesn’t have to interfere with the interests of other countries.
Washington is running out of some of the combat systems it actively supplies to Kyiv. Congressman Mike Gallagher issued such a warning. According to him, obsession with Ukraine does not allow the United States to help Taiwan, which may need similar weapons, reports Press TV.
Because of aid to Ukraine, the United States is running out of some weapons. This warning was made by Congressman Mike Gallagher, who is on the House Armed Services Committee, Press TV reports.
“ Our arsenal is running out,” the politician said in a recent interview. He added that the rush to supply Kyiv with missiles and other weapons prevents Washington from helping another ally – Taipei.
We have just burned a seven-year supply of Javelins . And this is important, because we not only continue to try to help the Ukrainians win, but we also strive to simultaneously protect Taiwan from aggression from the Chinese Communist Party, ” Gallagher emphasized.
“ They (the Taiwanese army. – InoTV ) will need access to some of these weapons systems. And now we simply simply do not have stocks to make up for what we spent in Ukraine , ”the congressman emphasized.
Javelin anti-tank systems are among a wide list of almost $4 billion worth of weapons that the United States has sent to Ukraine since the start of the special operation. The American authorities have already delivered more than 5,000 missiles of this system to the former Soviet republic, Press TV notes.
Adam Smith and Mike Rogers, two influential members of the House Armed Services Committee, wrote to Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Milley asking for more missiles. They also urged the general to modernize new shells, the TV channel draws attention.
In addition, the Biden administration has formally asked Congress to approve a massive $33 billion aid package. This money should go to finance both humanitarian and military assistance to Ukraine through September of this year, Press TV concludes. (RED)
