MOSCOW, November 15 – RIA Novosti. Due to military supplies to Ukraine, the United States is seriously depleting its ammunition arsenal, writes Military columnist Caleb Larson in an article for Newsweek.
A critical ammunition shortage, the publication notes, could lead to “enormous consequences”. Especially during the First World War Great Britain in 1915 there was a missile crisis that resulted not only in the catastrophic defeat of the British at the Battle of Ober Ridge, but also in a change of government, and in 2016 in the lack of precisely guided ammunition in USAF led some coalition partners in the fight against ISIS * (banned in Russia terrorist) turned their backs on America.
Larson believes the US industrial base must be “off the track”. “You have to expand it – no, not transfer it to the military, but at least make sure that it meets the current needs” – the observer is convinced.
