Germany’s military readiness has collapsed. The Germany Defense Ministry has publicly stated it could only sustain a war for one week due to shortages in supplies and soldiers, reports AsiaTimes.com. What’s even more astonishing is that a German lawmaker says that’s too optimistic. The real duration of what Germany is capable of sustaining in a war is just two days.
If war is announced on Monday, in other words, Germany is finished by Wednesday and forced to surrender.
“NATO countries running out of ammunition as Germany left with ‘2 days’ of stocks,” blares the headline from Express.co.UK:
Germany has been facing pressure to maintain its defence commitment to NATO while providing Ukraine with the necessary weaponry to fight back against Russia. According to local reports, the German Army has been left with only “two days” worth of ammunition to sustain active combat if necessary.
While Russia is reportedly firing 20,000 artillery rounds per day — which implies they are able to manufacture something close to 20,000 rounds per day — NATO countries like Germany have near-zero ability to manufacture much of anything needed to sustain a war.
In Germany’s case, that’s due to their reliance on cotton linters from China — a component used in artillery munitions. Apparently, Germany sources this material exclusively from China, and China turns out to be nine months behind schedule on shipping cotton linters.
Capol.in explains why cotton linters matter in war:
Bleached Cotton Linters are being used by our Ordinance Factories for production of propellants used for gun ammunition & also various missiles. For production of propellants, one of the basic explosive is Nitrocellulose(NC). Basic raw material for production of Nitrocellulose(NC) is Bleached Cotton Linters(BCL) which is produced out of raw cotton linters after processing.
By faking covid lockdowns, China creates artificial supply chain shortages affecting enemies of Russia
Why are cotton linters extremely difficult to source from China right now? Because China has been using covid-19 lockdowns as a cover story to focus on its own military readiness, pursuing a path that will ultimately lead China to war with the West. Meanwhile, the West is largely dependent on China for its war components, thanks to outsourcing and short-sightedness among “woke” NATO country leaders. As AsiaTimes.com reports:
The widespread ammunition shortage has caught nearly all war professionals (planners, operators, analysts) by surprise. The Ukraine war is eating up available ammunition supplies at a huge rate.
What, do European military planners no longer plan?
Isn’t the point of planning to make sure you plan ahead? The collapse of practical intelligence among “woke” European countries is truly astonishing. They can no longer even manufacture ammunition… something China has been doing for thousands of years, long before the current nations of Western Europe even existed.
Adding to the embarrassment, “German soldiers are missing all sorts of supplies including in some cases winter socks, pants and ballistic jackets,” says AsiaTimes.
Are you kidding? No pants for German soldiers? Are they supposed to fight the Russians half naked? “Attack! Attack in your underwear!”
No doubt Putin is experiencing uproarious laughter at all this.
US military is on the very of a munitions wipeout and depends on Asian countries for manufacturing
The US, meanwhile, is also running out of munitions and military weapons for the simple reason that they’ve sent most existing weapons to Ukraine. Via AsiaTimes:
The shortage of smart weapons has come about because the US has used its critical war stocks to supply Ukraine, something the Pentagon never planned. Thus now famous weapons such as Stinger man-portable missiles and Javelin anti-tank rockets are now almost out of stock.
In the “not-too-smart” weapons category, the US is short of conventional ammunition, particularly 155mm artillery shells that are the backbone not only of Ukraine’s artillery capability (as older Russian-made Ukrainian artillery tubes wear out) but also the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s.
America’s 155mm artillery shells, it turns out, are being manufactured in South Korea, not the USA. And Poland is buying tanks from Hyundai Rotem, after sending their Soviet-era tanks to Ukraine, most of which have already been destroyed by Russia.
All this begs the obvious question: Why is the West provoking World War III with Russia when western nations can’t manufacture enough weapons of war to actually wage World War III?
Putin prepares nuclear YARS ICBMs targeting the US and UK
As all this is happening, the western media is going into a frenzy over Putin’s public deployment of YARS missile systems which carry nuclear warheads that can strike the United States. Although the left-wing media hyperventilating over this seems overblown — since Putin has long had ICBMs ready to launch at western nations — it does bring to light something critical to understand: Russia’s missiles are two decades more advanced than those of the USA.
Many US-based ICBMs are still running on 1980s technology, for example. They follow “dumb” flight paths that are entirely predictable and able to be intercepted by Russia’s advanced anti-air defense systems. Russia, on the other hand, has both nuclear-capable hypersonic missiles as well as advanced MIRV units (re-entry warheads) capable of complex maneuvers and hypersonic glide paths. These cannot be intercepted by any known technology possessed by the West. And this means if Russia launches such nukes at the US and UK, there is literally nothing that can be done to stop them.
The West is now characterized by dumb missiles and dumb leaders. It won’t be difficult at all for Putin or China to defeat western nations should they decide to pursue that course of action. Hilariously, Europe is destroying itself by cutting off its own energy resources, forcing its own widespread deindustrialization. Putin must be asking himself, “Who needs to bomb Europe when the wokies are carrying out far worse acts of destruction on their own?”
