For Ukraine

If you buy this, you will be loudly weeping and gnashing your teeth several years down the line when you see where those weapons end up getting used.

At least part of it will end up used in terror acts killing Poles like me or their big fan @tomasz when all the surviving banderites will disperse around the Europe and their old hatreds will surface.

Also 100% they are gonna blame Poland for not openly joining their war.

Just for context, US currently produces 172,800 shells a year, while Russia was producing 733,260 back in 2021. And this six fold increase is going to take years to do. And shells aren’t the only problem here. US built howitzers can’t sustain the rate of fire needed to use such amounts of shells. So, it’s back to the drawing board for uncle Sam.

That’s generally how wars work. It’s likely similar with Russia’s military-industrial complex (and any associated sticky fingers).

Not a very good one, given that Russia has invaded another country and is both recklessly and intentionally targeting its civilian and their infrastructure.

Since you’re evidently utterly ignorant of history, I recommend reading this book produced by US military, it makes it crystal clear that allies played a minor role in the war:

Paper tiger. If they think this war will wait two years for them to industrialize they are different kinds of high. Even if they do, they have the biggest neo liberal government on earth, thrusting money into the industrial military complex only means big profits for Lockheed Martin and very little output, plus Russia, China, and the rest of the anti imperialist core already have the advantage when it comes to manufacturing so they will be lagged behind anyway.

If they think this war will wait two years for them to industrialize they are different kinds of high.

It’s a process that has already begun and will continue for two more years. As the article states, the US has already gone from a pre-war production of 14,400 rounds per month to 90,000 now. So yields are ongoing. They are also working in the mean time to transfer supplies from current stockpiles until production levels ramp up.

anti imperialist core

Russia has invaded another country to steal its territory. That’s the

advantage when it comes to manufacturing

Consumer manufacturing and arms manufacturing are a very different matter. For better or for worse, the US absolutely dominates the international arms export market.

Exactly, the elephant in the room is that if US is having trouble keeping up with Russia in terms of industrial production, they have no hope of matching China which absolutely dwarfs Russia industrially.
