Arming Ukraine & Israel Could Result in US Undermining Its Own Military
"It's already on," Michael Maloof, a former senior security policy analyst in the Office of the US Secretary of Defense, told Sputnik. "It's already going to be on. I'm sure [Ukrainian President Volodymyr] Zelensky realizes that the US is much more favorable toward Israel because of the number of Jewish Americans in the United States and the Jewish lobby in Congress, it's quite extensive. Ukraine doesn't have that kind of a representation in the Congress. American people do not want a war with Russia. So that's basically what would occur if we continued unabated any assistance to Ukraine. So for the White House, it's at a very serious crossroads in geopolitical thinking on what direction we go. And I think we're going to be seeing a competition between the two for assistance. We have ironclad commitments with Israel in terms of Iron Dome. We help them develop it, in fact."
"So you're probably going to see more Iron Dome rockets going and launchers and they could easily get more aircraft. We have a surplus of those, but the US stockpile will be limited. Howitzers, bombs and artillery - It's all been going to Ukraine. And the question is what is our own standing with our own US military in terms of its preparedness? And nobody's talking about that. And I think that some of the reports I've heard are that they're wanting and they're having to delay shipments to the US military because it's all going at that point, when I heard the reports, going to Ukraine," Maloof said.
