Four Senators Call for Long-Range Tactical Weapons to Ukraine

Four GOP Senators urged Biden in a letter to send tactical missile systems to Ukraine. They claim if they don’t, it will prolong the war. The logic of that escapes me. The Senators include Tom Cotton. Roger Wicker, Susan Collins, and Lindsey Graham.

In the letter, the four Senators urged Joe Biden to immediately send “MGM–140 Army Tactical Missile Systems to Ukraine (ATACMS).” They write that “providing these weapons would enable Ukraine to strike key Russian logistics and communications targets, as well as cruise missile and drone launch sites within Russian-occupied Ukraine.”

“The longer-range unitary warhead variant of an ATACMS should be sent without delay. They claim in the letter that the “Ukrainian military has achieved some breakthrough in Russian occupied territory. It is essential that the United States immediately provide ATACMS to Ukraine to achieve final objectives before winter and deny Russia the ability to fortify its positions.”

Lockheed Martin makes the weapons. They describe them: ATACMS is a long-range guided missile that gives operational commanders the immediate firepower to win a deep battle. It has a 190-mile range.

This is an escalation in a war that Ukraine cannot win. It’s becoming quite a challenge to claim we are not in a direct war with Russia.

Biden mentioned that the military was low on ammunition.

Mike Pence recently said that if Russia can’t be repelled, we must send US troops to Ukraine.

We believe that would mean conscription.

That would put us in direct war with Russia and their allies. Russia has said that they could use nuclear weapons if they feel they are losing. They see NATO on their border as an existential threat.

Is it moral for the US to fight using Ukrainians as the troops?

He’s stirring the pot with China.

One would think by now these Republicans, except for Graham, would recognize the Intelligence Community has their own agenda. It should be obvious literally everything in the Federal Government has been politicized. The conclusion one has to draw is their support is for future gain once leaving office, if not for present financial gain.

What will these politicians say once the latest ‘wonder weapons’ do not accomplish what is hoped for. Common sense would look at the scale of buildup in Iraq against an ‘enemy’ that isn’t even close to comparison with Russia. Even the US with all its logistics would be hard pressed to engage the Russians. It appears we haven’t changed tactics since Vietnam. Oftentimes the goal was little more than “take that hill”. Russian tactics have been to take ground which prompts Ukraine to enter the battle area. Then Russia pulls back giving the false impression they are losing and once Ukraine enters a slaughter ensues. Clearly these Senators have no clue what is going on in the theater of battle.

Those Senators don’t care about what’s happening in the “theater of battle”. That hasn’t been important since WW2. Truman gave China to Mao and nearly gave S. Korea to to N. Korea. We could have won in Vietnam, but your “take that hill” and/or the “body count” was the measure in Vietnam. This whole fiasco is about globalism, money and power plus controlling the masses here in USA. Funding “Z” the dictator, laundering money, selling weapons to both sides and terrorists is what’s important to the politicians and donors. Also covering up the corruption involved is important to them. Is the house of cards about to collapse? Is that why it’s important to start a war so these Senators and their donors can continue the cover up?

Age old plan by politicians and elites; They need a war (crisis) so they (deep state, NAZI, Communists) can control We The People!

These are awful people who appeal to powerful interests instead of the nation.

Mitch is proud, to have so many corrupt senators among his members. I estimate about 20 of the GOP senators are fully in the corrupt Mitch RINO camp.

Cotton plays a patriot on TV with his cherry picked issues. He outright supported the election coup of 2020. That was a tell tale sign. He follows the same path as Rubio, Nixon, Graham and others, using a strong defense posture as a way to trick the voters, while often supporting anti-US positions. Such behavior places him in the category of a NWO member.
