The American Military Needs More Ammo

Vladimir Putin claims to annex parts of Ukraine his troops now occupy while threatening to use nuclear weapons if war doesn’t go his way, so this is no time for western democracies to falter. The Biden administration deserves credit for announcing an additional $1.1 billion in security aid this week, but buried in the details is a warning about America’s ability to sustain a long war.

The Pentagon announced “the start of a procurement process” that will eventually supply Ukraine with more multi-mission radars, unmanned defense systems, tactical weapons-towing vehicles and other equipment. The US will also procure 18 highly mobile artillery missile systems, known as Himars, to supplement the 16 that Ukraine is now using to excellent effect on the battlefield, particularly at Russian ammunition depots and logistics lines.
