The US is running out of some types of precision-guided weapons


The United States lacks all sorts of weapons to send to Ukraine. This was announced in an interview with CNN by three responsible officials. We are talking, in particular, about various kinds of ammunition and high-precision weapons.


Problems with the stockpile of weapons systems are very sensitive to the White House, since the administration of the current US president is involved in large-scale arms deliveries to Ukraine, and Kyiv is looking forward to an increase in this assistance.

The disadvantage primarily concerns 155-mm artillery ammunition, Stinger MANPADS, HARM anti-radar missiles, GMLRS missiles for HIMARS MLRS, as well as shells for Javelin. The American resource indicates that the Pentagon did not plan to produce a large volume of weapons for use in prolonged intense hostilities.

The “shortage” of weapons may be due in no small part to the fact that the US military department failed its fifth arms audit since 2017. So, according to the latest check, the assets of the Ministry of Defense amounted to $3,5 trillion, liabilities - $3,7 trillion. At the same time, the department was unable to clearly report on 61 percent of its assets. Pentagon spokesman Michael McChord told the media the day before.

    That is, all statements that the USA wants a world war, etc. - as if refuted ...
    If not for HPP, Omerika would still be sitting with old subsonic missiles, abrams and aircraft carriers at the pier ......

    Therefore, a deep thought creeps in that Putin is playing on the fact that the supposedly Russian army has already run out of steam and now ... a little more ... we need to put pressure on ... the whole world ... that is, all NATO and the United States tighten their belts .... squeeze dry all the military arsenals .. stay with a bare bottom ... but send the last ammunition to Ukraine ...... The goal of this comedy now is not a victory over the regime and the ukrovermacht ... namely, to weaken and squeeze dry the military arsenals of the West and the United States. ..that they have nothing left. And therefore, mobilization was carried out .... and all the main forces of the personnel army were not involved. The basis of the cadre army is waiting in the wings, so that in which case they will clash with the NATO and US armies. And here there are enough trained mobilized.
