In a recent interview, President Biden made a startling admission that the United States is low on 155 mm artillery ammunition rounds. This revelation has ignited a wave of outrage and raised serious questions about the competency and readiness of the Biden administration.
During the interview, which aired on Sunday morning, Biden attempted to justify the decision to send cluster munitions to Ukraine as a temporary measure until more ammunition can be produced. However, his explanation did little to appease conservatives who were left puzzled and concerned about why such a shortage would be publicly announced, potentially alerting our adversaries.
Conservative voices on social media quickly expressed their frustration and disbelief. Political operative Logan Dobson sarcastically remarked, “Love when the president of America goes on CNN to tell everyone we’re low on ammo.” Conservative communicator Steve Guest tweeted, “Moron. Does Biden not care that our adversaries in China are listening?”
Byron York of the Washington Examiner, known for his balanced analysis, found Biden’s remarks deeply troubling. He commented, “In CNN interview, President Biden is not particularly clear but seems to be saying US is sending cluster munitions to Ukraine because we are running out of 155mm artillery ammunition to send them. Seems obvious this is affecting US readiness to defend itself.”
The White House attempted to do damage control when a spokesperson clarified that the United States is not running out of ammunition and that everything sent to Ukraine exceeds reserve requirements. However, the damage had already been done. Political commentator Ian Miles Cheong remarked, “Joe Biden wasn’t supposed to say the quiet part out loud: ‘We’ve run out of ammunition.’ But now that the cat’s out of the bag, one must ask whether continued support of Ukraine’s military is even feasible as the conflict rages on.”
Critics also highlighted the inconsistency in Biden’s stance on cluster munitions. Robert Kennedy Jr., Biden’s opponent in the Democrat presidential race, took to Twitter to condemn the decision. He reminded everyone that White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki had previously called the use of cluster bombs a “war crime.” Kennedy questioned, “What happened to his conscience?”
A White House official defended the authorization of cluster munitions for Ukraine, emphasizing the need to ensure Ukraine’s defense. The official stated that the cluster munitions are a temporary solution until domestic production of ammunition can be significantly increased.
The revelation of the ammunition shortage has shaken the confidence of passionate Republican voters. It raises serious doubts about the Biden administration’s ability to prioritize national security and maintain a strong defense. It is crucial for Republicans to remain vigilant and hold the administration accountable to ensure the safety and security of our great nation.
