Supply Chain Still Broken? This Should Give You A Sense As To Why.

The U.S. and Europe are running out of weapons to send to Ukraine
by Natasha Turak
September 28, 2022


In the U.S. weapons industry, the normal production level for artillery rounds for the 155 millimeter howitzer — a long-range heavy artillery weapon currently used on the battlefields of Ukraine — is about 30,000 rounds per year in peacetime.

The Ukrainian soldiers fighting invading Russian forces go through that amount in roughly two weeks.

That’s according to Dave Des Roches, an associate professor and senior military fellow at the U.S. National Defense University. And he’s worried.

“I’m greatly concerned. Unless we have new production, which takes months to ramp up, we’re not going to have the ability to supply the Ukrainians,” Des Roches told CNBC.

Folks, that is logistics stupidity on a breathtaking level.

Stupid why? Because we don’t maintain wartime production levels?

We can’t, unless China says we can.

Without their rare Earth elements, our most sophisticated weaponry cannot be produced.

I called this months ago.

Good, we shouldn’t be involved in this shite anyways. Ukraine is and always will be a money laundering country for our elite. Not to mention all the weird shite that has been found there. I do not wish pain and suffering for the people, but I also do not want us to get involved and have our tax dollars and more importantly our own lives at stake.

Seems like only yesterday our objective was to have the capability of maintaining 2 wars on 2 different fronts.

Now we can’t even maintain one of someone else’s war.

I cant tell you the number of times, being in the Pepsi Frito business, that sales managers have run in my office with the latest deal the competition is rolling out with price. My first word, go check with production/logistics, makes no sense to promise a price run out of stock and you cant supply your normal customers.

ie should have never committed anything before checking, and should have certainly reserved stocks for our own defense.
