U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe said the U.S. military is low on munitions, and current production is not keeping up with demand.

“For example,” Inhofe told a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing, “we’re sending thousands of Stingers to Ukraine, and we don’t even have a hot production line.”

On March 16, the U.S. said it was sending an additional 800 Stinger missile systems and 2,000 Javelins to Ukraine. Both are portable guided missile systems, with the Javelin primarily an anti-tank weapon and the Stinger capable of surface-to-air and air-to-air use.

The latest allocation would bring to nearly 20,000 the number of missiles sent to Ukraine in the past month, according to Forbes. That report said the U.S. still has plenty of Javelins, but noted Stingers are out of production and the Iowa munitions plant that manufactures the warheads for both is undergoing major renovations.

Bombs, bullets, oil reserves, gone.  Is someone(s) trying to make it easy for the US to be invaded and taken over and no means to fight back?  Sure does seem that way.
