US press: The readiness of the American army to participate in any long-term conflict has significantly decreased

The readiness of the American army to participate in any conflict has decreased significantly, the United States is simply not ready to participate in the war. The reason is banal - this is military assistance to Ukraine, which has depleted the Pentagon's arsenals. This conclusion was made by the authors of an article for The Wall Street Journal.


The US authorities, in their attempt to stop Russia with the help of the Ukrainian army, depleted the US reserves. Large arms shipments and the inability of American industry to restock weapons and ammunition in a short time left the US military incapable of waging any long-term conflict. As the authors of the article say, "the arsenals of democracy" are under threat due to military assistance to Ukraine.

Moreover, it is noted that the stocks of those weapons that are indispensable on the battlefield, such as Javelin anti-tank systems or Stinger MANPADS, have depleted. Now the White House is trying to restore their stocks, but this could take years.

Washington sent more than $19 billion in security assistance to Kyiv, including thousands of long-range missiles and missiles and millions of rounds of ammunition from the Pentagon depots (...) this led to the depletion of American stocks and reduced the readiness of the American armed forces for war

- writes the edition.

According to many Western experts, neither the United States nor its NATO allies were ready for such intense military operations, when a huge amount of ammunition is spent in one day, and armored vehicles are destroyed not by units, but by tens and hundreds. The arsenals of Western countries are not designed for long-term hostilities; NATO planned to complete everything in a couple of months, crushing Russia with sanctions and forcing it to admit defeat. However, it turned out that the Russian economy is much stronger, and the military reserves are much larger.

    The striped ones are cunning, they have everything, with their developed military-industrial complex, it’s even funny to hear it. This is how they praised the Russian electronic warfare. The result was not impressive.

    We also have a special people who will stand up to defend their homeland and to the machine, if necessary, as in 41m.

    It's one thing when conditionally free weapons are in warehouses (they once made them, and now you don't have to spend money on them). And it’s a completely different matter when weapons need to be manufactured at their own expense and given to Ukraine free of charge.

    The US is simply not ready to go to war.
    At the same time, the desire to fight with Russia and China did not disappear, but rather intensified. Here, either The Wall Street Journal does not finish something, or the tower near the United States is thoroughly demolished. And American and, first of all, European arsenals will continue to be depleted, but this will not affect Ukrainian supplies yet.

      This is a designation of a problem and a demand for money. They know how to deploy the military-industrial complex if necessary. Therefore, delaying the operation is harmful for us, because. weight categories are different, Mr. Xi is in no hurry to help, they don’t seem to be afraid of our nuclear weapons

    Aren't you tired of typing the same thing over and over? "They're running out of weapons," "it's about to end," so tomorrow all the NATO Armed Forces will go home, cut out the slingshots. Yes, they do not write this for us, but for their taxpayers to justify the high spending on weapons.
    We verbally humiliate NATO and the USA, but we look directly into their mouths, who will say what. All these reprints, where some kind of ex is nonsense, are not worth a damn.
    Why, for example, there are no CBO assessments from more independent politicians in China, India, etc. It would be interesting to read them than all sorts of American nonsense (Zaluzhny against Zelensky, etc.).

    Care must be taken with such information. After all, there are a lot of gullible citizens from top to bottom.
