While Ukraine receives America’s finest weaponry, our foreign adversaries have begun circling like the Huns and the Vandals.
Munitions and taxpayer dollars are rushing into Ukraine at an unprecedented rate while the average American struggles to afford a gallon of milk or formula for their baby.
The political party ostensibly against war is surely doing its best to make the battle in Eastern Europe even bloodier.
This week, the Biden administration announced it will be sending more military aid to Ukraine. We’ve now provided Zelensky with over $4.6 billion in aid since the onset of Russia’s invasion of their neighbors to the West.
Included in the most recent aid package is $700 million of the most advanced military weaponry around.
Lockheed Martin recently manufactured a weapons system with a range of 40 miles called the High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems, or HIMARS, which Ukraine will now possess four of. Additionally, the U.S. will send over five counter artillery radars, two surveillance radars, 1,000 Javelins, 50 command launch units, 6,000 anti-armor weapons, 15,000 155mm rounds of ammunition (for the MI-17), and 15 tanks.
Dr. Colin Kahl, Undersecretary of Defense, announced the weapons dump on Wednesday. He said Ukrainian soldiers would need weeks of training to operate the equipment, specifically the HIMARS.
Joe Biden was reportedly reluctant to provide Ukraine with such advanced weaponry and warned Zelensky to use these systems for defense only.
The cognitively deficient President laid out his concerns in an op-ed published by the New York Times.
“We are not encouraging or enabling Ukraine to strike beyond its borders,” Biden wrote.

Kahl echoed Biden’s demand, saying: “Ukraine has given us assurances that they will use these weapons systems for defensive purposes only.”
Yeah, that sounds right. Let’s accept the good word of a corrupt politician in one of the most corrupt countries in the world.
Both Biden and Kahl are appearing averse to providing Ukraine with weapons that could target locations within Russia’s borders, but everyone knows these blood-thirsty warlords will do anything to take down Putin insofar as it’s not done with U.S. weapons.
He added in his op-ed, “So long as the United States or our allies are not attacked, we will not be directly engaged in this conflict, either by sending American troops to fight in Ukraine or by attacking Russian forces.”
Let’s all rest easy knowing the single most corrupt President (and Zelensky) pinky-promised not to blow up Russians using American weapons.
