MIKE GALLAGHER: I think Secretary Austin made the right call in going to Kyiv talking directly with Zelenskyy and really for the first time talking as if he believes the Ukrainians can win. I think that’s the right signal to send to our allies. It is also right to send a signal that we want Russia to be permanently hobbled by this misadventure of unprovoked aggression.
What’s bad is the president himself seems at times to constantly want to remind everybody what we won’t do and putting arbitrary limits on our assistance, I think, undermines our effort. But, the real ugly is that we are running low in terms of our stockpiles. We just burned through seven years of Javelins and that’s not only important as we continue to try and help the Ukrainians win in Ukraine, that’s important as we try to simultaneously defend Taiwan from aggression from the Chinese Communist Party. They are going to need access to some of these same weapons systems, and we simply don’t have the stockpiles at present in order to backfill what we’ve spent in Ukraine.
