Perhaps Americans’ greatest fears regarding the Ukraine War are precisely the reason why Beijing invested handsomely in “The Big Guy.”
After all, it’s been well over a year since Biden emptily proclaimed, “no more!” in response to Putin’s military invasion of Ukraine at his ineffectual 2021 State of the Union address.
Never mind the fact that Biden basically winked at a “minor incursion” previously.
Well, way more than a year after Biden emptily proclaimed “no more” to Putin, he continues to shovel tens of billions of dollars into Ukraine, with no end and no accountability in sight.
For quite some time, Americans have rightfully suspected that the endless hemorrhaging of billions was some form of repayment for all the dirt that Ukrainian entities clear have on the Biden regime.
However, it is also clear that China invested even more substantial sums into the Biden family, with multiple Biden family members serving as direct beneficiaries of Beijing.
Thus, one almost wonders if the current burn rate of American weaponry in Ukraine, which shows no signs of reduction, is precisely what the Chinese may have invested in.
After all, what better way to gradually grow one’s tentacles all over the world than to disarm the most powerful military in the world?
Indeed, within months of the invasion last year, varied officials were sounding the alarm about the huge burn rate of American weaponry, in particular stingers and javelins.
Especially as various defense contractors have made it abundantly clear that they cannot easily replace the weaponry that’s been shipped overseas.
Either that, or they issue thinly veiled threats, namely that they expect all their weapons to be purchased and used if produced, which effectively means a guaranteed continuation of the Ukraine War, as suggested by Reuters in 2022.
“Shoulder-fired Stinger missiles are in hot demand in Ukraine where they have successfully stopped Russian assaults from the air, but U.S. supplies have shrunk and producing more of the anti-aircraft weapons faces significant hurdles …
Challenges include complications related to ramping up production, reluctance by the United States to redirect valuable manufacturing capacity to decades-old technology, and fears among defense companies that they would be stuck with unwanted arms when the Ukraine war winds down,” the outlet reported.
So, this issue was raised nearly a year ago in the press, but the White House kept on hemorrhaging billions upon billions of weapons systems anyway.
After all, the federal government hasn’t figured out a way to print weapons the way it prints paper.
Regardless, it is beyond obvious that the Ukraine War is nowhere near ending, making Americans very, very edgy about the continued hemorrhaging of weapons in the nation.
As revealed by Fox News, most Americans are starting to wake up to the reality of an endless war against Russia in East Europe.
While many Americans believe that money is better spent on “domestic needs,” which also has merit, more are realizing that “domestic needs” also entail national security needs.
“Americans who do not support sending continued aid to Ukraine believe that money would better be spent on domestic needs. A majority of those who don’t support continued aid to Ukraine, 57%, believe spending money on unmet domestic needs is the ‘most compelling’ reason for their position …
In addition to spending on unmet domestic needs, 17% of respondents indicated the most compelling reason to oppose further support of Ukraine was that it would risk the U.S. provoking Russia. Meanwhile, 11% of respondents cited both corruption in Ukraine and the need to preserve U.S. weapons stockpiles as reasons to oppose future aid,” Fox News detailed.
With time, provided this endless depletion of weaponry continues, that 11 percent is likely to grow …
