Pentagon Cannot Account For $20 Billion Worth Of Weapons In Ukraine While Another $19 Billion For Taiwan Is Missing

Illustrative Image

Very few in the US have admitted that they don’t have the production capacity necessary to concurrently arm the Kiev regime and the government in Taipei.

Written by Drago Bosnic, independent geopolitical and military analyst

As if ongoing corruption scandals, including the FTX-Kiev regime-DNC connection, weren’t enough, the troubled Biden administration is now faced with another one. According to the latest reports, the US government is unable to account for the approximately $20 billion worth of weapons it sent to the Kiev regime. The US Congress has become a place of heated debates as Republicans warn there will be “impending audits” after they take full control of the House of Representatives in January. Major news media, such as Fox News, claim that the US government under Biden inspected only 10% of approximately 22,000 weapons it sent to the Kiev regime from late February to November.

The GOP wants audits to determine what is going on with the massive amounts of weapons the US is sending and how much of it is ending up “where it’s supposed to be.” Republican representative Marjorie Taylor Greene has vowed to “hold our government accountable” for spending US taxpayers’ dollars for the sake of the corrupt Kiev regime. Other members of the US Congress have been asking for audits for months, while Senator Rand Paul asked on Twitter: “Didn’t someone try to legislatively mandate a special inspector general to scrutinize Ukrainian spending?  Oh, that’s right, it was my amendment and most Democrats AND Republicans opposed any semblance of oversight.”

Back in May, the Biden administration promised it would pledge more than $54 billion in the military, financial and humanitarian “aid” to the Kiev regime. Various estimates of the full amount of funds the political West sent (and is still sending) put the actual number much higher (more than $65 billion back in May). Since Russia launched its counteroffensive on February 24, the US provided the bulk of those funds, way more than all of its vassals and satellite states combined, according to data cited by Summit News. On multiple occasions, the US government and the Pentagon indirectly admitted they weren’t able to track Ukraine-bound funds and resources after they reached the Polish-Ukrainian border.

On the other hand, representatives of some of the US vassals and satellite states in Europe have expressed frustration with the GOP’s requests for accountability of where the funds earmarked for the Kiev regime are ending up. These European officials “hope that such measures would not lead to cutting off funding to Ukraine and ultimately to victory for Russia.” Others, such as the United Kingdom Parliament member Tobias Ellwood, have been more direct and accused the Republicans that “they are playing into Putin’s hands” by asking for audits and imposition of stricter control, oversight and accountability regarding the funds for the Kiev regime.

Yet, weapons deliveries to the Kiev regime are hardly the only issue the US is faced with at present. Weapons the Biden administration promised to deliver to China’s breakaway island province of Taiwan have been considerably delayed and slowed as a result of the US commitment to arming the Neo-Nazi junta. It is estimated that Washington DC approved approximately $20 billion in arms sales to the government in Taipei since 2017. In late August, a Defense News report claimed there was a $14 billion backlog in weapons sales to Taiwan. However, the latest data indicates that the number has now drastically increased to nearly $19 billion in delayed deliveries, according to a new estimate by The Wall Street Journal.

“US government and congressional officials fear the conflict in Ukraine is exacerbating a nearly $19 billion backlog of weapons bound for Taiwan, further delaying efforts to arm the island as tensions with China escalate,” the WSJ report begins. “The US has pumped billions of dollars of weapons into Ukraine since the Russian invasion in February, taxing the capacity of the government and defense industry to keep up with a sudden demand to arm Kiev in a conflict that isn’t expected to end soon,” the authors added in an admission rarely seen in mainstream media.

The information indicates that the US might not be able to respond effectively to a potential escalation of tensions in Taiwan. “The flow of weapons to Ukraine is now running up against the longer-term demands of a US strategy to arm Taiwan to help it defend itself against a possible invasion by China, according to congressional and government officials familiar with the matter,” WSJ report states.

Somewhat ironically, many Washington DC and Taipei officials have consistently used the Ukraine crisis as a reference point to reinforce the narrative that the US “must urgently equip the island with everything it needs.” However, very few of them have admitted that the US Military Industrial Complex doesn’t have the production capacity necessary to concurrently arm the Kiev regime and the government in Taipei. This is especially true given the aforementioned issues with tracking weapons and other funds earmarked for the Neo-Nazi junta in Kiev.

10% for the Big Guy on all weapons sent to Ukraine

Not missing at all. It’s already old in the dark web. Most likely in terrorists hands.

Maybe stored and waiting for the social unrest / civil war in the UK and EU … ever wondered why all these immigrants are fighting aged, young and fit me ?.

Steinfranz

And they got cash. I saw Ukrainians, from the looks and behavior a construction worker or something, paying a pack of cigarettes with a 100€ bill, of which he had 2-3 bundles of I guess 30-40 per bundle, which he stored without a wallet in the pockets of his pants. Saw similar things 5-6 times. As I wrote earlier: whatever happens, the Ukrainians are designated by the global elite to become the new fascist SA street fighting shock troop against their own populations in case they don’t follow like slaves. The other one is the antifa, but they are much weaker. Usually blue haired, gender fluid guys who are more girl than boy (sometimes the other way around) and surely there is no real man among them.

Florian Geyer

I agree and migrant enforcers in any country are a risk for indigenous populations. This is because migrants have little or no empathy with those who are victims of government tyranny.

It’s been going on since at least the Clinton years. Just with increased speed and intensity now. Ever wonder how they pulled the moral coup with gender indoctrination off? How did they manage the brainwash? It’s expensive, just look at the price tag of ONE newspaper or private tv station.

Not to mention the countless fucking sorosist NGO’s.

Why are all the hicks calling agitational terrorists NGOs? New term is Third Sector. Older term is Fifth Column. They are all 100% government funded very few if any private money involved. It is like a governement agency but with 0 accountability. They are sabotage-terror organizations funded by the politicians by tax money.

And they hire sabotagists, terrorists, agitators, genocide instigators, fake revolutionists (nowadays called rainbow faggot revolutions, old KGB term National Fronts) etc etc.

Employees of these terror organizations used to be called commsomolci by Soviets.

The USA government has become an international corporation to extract the wealth of the nation and control of the world for a ruling cabal. The pentagon can not account for more than 2.3 trillion taxpayer dollars… they exploit the US military and NATO in wars of political conquest to enhance the wealth of those few.

False statements.

Politicians have hijacked US Government (other governments have been hijacked long time ago) and made it to fuction like East India Company. They are definitely not Capitalist, nor Corporations.

US is the last government thats has been hijacked by Fiefs (as in fief in Feudalism, mordern term Politician). It has happened 12 years ago.

US does not have military. Nor it does have Army. That has ended in 1973. US has only Mercinaries for High Seas like long dead East India Company.

US flag is not a national flag. It is the flag of East India Company. Thats is why natives in US are called Indians, because they were property of East India Company who came with the land.

Surprise surprise. What a big surprise. Who would ever be thinking all this help to Ukraine would disappear out in the blue air. We thought everybody in the West were helping Ukraine and the third nations. What a surprise surprise surprise.

Don’t worry…. when the EU opens up the borders for Ukraine completely, the ”missing” weapons will reappear in several countries with and in the hands of the ”non-existing” nazi’s..

I doubt they can smuggle some tanks, MRAPs, self propelled guns or ATGM but who knows… I would buy a Toyota or Mitsubishi SUV for a couple of thousands €. They have stolen plenty.

Correct, but MANPADS I have no doubt.

Zelensky is a crook. I remember an Ukrainian arms transport plane transporting weapons and ammunition to some Muslim country, crashing into Greece (googled it, it was July 16th 2022) and everybody asked: how can Ukraine SELL weapons and ammunition to some Muslim country while there’s a war going on in their own country and they get weapons for free from the West? Well, Zelensky is a crook. You bet billions of the money and equipment the West provided was sold either to some country or on the black market or something of that ilk to fill his and another Ukrainian oligarchs, global elite and fascists pocket.

Besides that there is an enormous BOOM with Human Organ Trafficking from the fresh killed ukro-imbecile troops. Read articles about that and the increasing transplant in Jisrael and Jamerica.

Steinfranz

It’s possible, even likely, yes. Fits the sinister thinking of the Ukrainian oligarchs, globalist elite and their local satrap Zelensky. However, you can remove most organs – for organ transplanting purposes – only while the “donator” is still alive, though already “brain dead”. So it would have to be those soldiers that get delivered into hospital dying but yet alive. That would still be plenty. Anyway, I’ll research the topic, thanks for the tip.

Let’s hope Bangladesh didn’t pay for the weapons and ammo in advance or they are out of luck.

For those motha fucker’s from Bucuresti/Bucharest officials (whores of the JUSA masters) who denies that in KuKrainii aren’t romanian mercenaries, a today new reportage about a retreated heavy wounded romanian mercenary imbecile, a former convicted for terrorism in Spain, from International Legion, was done by the Recorder Media. Plus a bonus with visual real recorded video with killed russians on battlefield, testimonies about his assignement to 92 Mechanized Brigade. Interview in Romania where this asshole lives, with his war clothing including badges, tatoo’s and so on…… So South Front, you can do a lot of good things by translating what this bandit piece of shit say in romanian and use it for legal sue if needed.

Dont worry, East are merging all payment cards in BRICS. Meaning there will only be 3 cards, Visa, Mastercard and the East Commie card. https://thecradle.co/Article/Columns/18975

Think about it? How do you arm a secret Freemason army of criminal thugs supporting the great reset democide of Western populations so they can help destroy any resistance from domestic law enforcement and military units refusing orders to commit atrocities on unarmed civilians (like Covid doctors have done)? Simple, you take the biggest available arsenals and shuffle their arms around under the pretense of supporting a war, and make sure the Masons get their hands on the goodies, and squirrel them away in containers on their private corporate sites across the countries in question, and trickle some of them into Africa as a diversion. Doubt me? Where’s my proof… One sentence… Jacob Schift did this to overthrow the Czar and murder tens of millions of Christians across Russia. Why will it happen again? Because it worked last time. Freemasons…KOS, all of em!
