Time to ramp up the Forever Wars again.  I'm sure Soros and the WEF are extremely pleased.

I thought drones were making tanks obsolete?

Maybe that’s why he’s trying to get rid of them.

Not very complicated at all actually. I was on the M1A2 and there’s a reason they call tankers DAT “dumbass tankers”. Idiots can figure them out.

We've made what 10,000 Abrams tanks?
We'll maybe send 2 dozen if Ukraine is lucky.

What we NEED to do is to...

1) get our own economic house in order. This shit is not sustainable.

2) take immediate and drastic steps to up our ability to produce military hardware. According to a report I saw the other day we normally produce a bit under 100,000 155mm artillery shells every year. We can accelerate production, perhaps with risks to worker safety and perhaps with quality control issues to a bit over 200,000 shells per year... and we have already shipped 1,000,000 to Ukraine. We can't produce enough missiles. We can't, for some reason, build ships at nearly the pace the Navy is already trying to build ships.

We are going to get into a real war soon and we won't have the economic strength or the production capacity to fight it. The only thing we have going for us right now is that most other countries are pretty fucked up too right now. But relying on your potential opponents being stupid is not a winning strategy.

And I am sure they will be working hard to replace those tanks and munitions from America's arsenal, right???

Oh, and let's give the Russkies and Chicoms some more Intel on US weapon systems too.

Giving in to nuke blackmail will ensure a future of nuclear proliferation and make nuclear war more likely.

The only thing I don't like about it is that they aren't going to be trained in how to use them properly.

A tank alone is worthless, it needs other tanks or crunchies.

Russia found out the hard way.

I know the Ukes are sending people to the states to train in other weapons systems, so it may not be too far fetched that they are going to send tank units as well.

At this rate, I wouldn't be surprised is Zalensky asked for us to give him a carrier battle group complete with jets and munitions. The sad part of that is that Biden and the WEF would most likely give it.

I get such a kick out of arf sometimes.

If this conflict happened under president desantis and he decided to send in boots on the ground peacekeepers arf would be all rah rah fuck putin... Arf just has to be contrarian to whatever democrats like.

I am philosophically anti war and even somewhat of an isolationist. As such I see the moral imperative in aiding a country in defending it's borders. I generally don't think we should send americans to do that but I actually agree with material support and military hardware is one of the few spending items I am ok with the federal government spending tax revenue on. I've said before keep all the tanks and planes and shit, keep developing the latest and greatest tech for them but bring all our boys home.

The speculation is Ukraine is just the beginning.  Poland is next, and that means NATO.
Russia is desperate and may resort to nukes if they cannot win.  If they invade Poland after securing Ukraine, it's WWIII.

He's probably saying that to convince Germany it's ok to give Poland the go ahead on the Leopards. Then see how it plays out.

This has been in the making, they’ve already been training and learning about them…. The announcement is just letting the public know, but the plan no doubt has been in place for awhile.

The Saudi tanks were not stripped down.

At the end of Desert Storm my unit turned our tanks over to them.

Regular old M1A1 and M1A1 Heavy tanks.

I’m just guessing these are the standard export model M1’s, and in that case, whatever… Our military isn’t going to use them.

Better to send them to Poland and backfill the Leopards they are sending to simplify logistics.
