Aid to Ukraine made US vulnerable – Newsweek

Military aid to Ukraine has severely depleted the U.S. military’s stockpiles of ammunition, leaving the country vulnerable to potential conflicts elsewhere due to a lack of resources. Journalist and defense expert Caleb Larson writes about this in a Newsweek article.

Larson believes that the shipment of thousands of anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons to Kyiv left the United States and allies vulnerable to a potential threat. Critical ammunition shortages can have huge consequences both on and off the battlefield.

“NATO faced a shortage of ammunition in Libya in 2011. And in 2016, the lack of precision-guided munitions by the Air Force led to the fact that some partners were denied the fight against the Islamic State (banned in the Russian Federation),” the article notes.

For this reason, the observer emphasizes the importance of transferring American industry from peaceful to military footing. In his opinion, the Pentagon can encourage private manufacturing companies to expand their operating capacities through financial support, including the use of multi-year purchasing contracts.
