As I explained in the interview with Christopher Cantwell, there is nothing new about the Trump administration selling Javelin anti-tank missiles to Ukraine or providing it with $400 million dollars in foreign aid annually to piss off Russia.
“The State Department has approved a new sale of Javelin anti-tank missiles to Ukraine for $39 million to help deter Russia, just days after the request played a role in initiating the impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump. …
The Javelins have played a central role in the steady U.S. effort to provide military support and training to the Ukrainians since the Russian invasion of the Crimean Peninsula in 2014.
In addition to the weapons sales, the United States has provided $1.5 billion in military assistance to Ukraine between 2014 and June 2019, according to an updated analysis from the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service. …”
I wrote about it last time it happened over a year ago.
Why is this suddenly scandalous? It is scandalous because Blompf temporarily halted giving military aid to Ukraine. He did the right thing for once and predictably a Deep State “whistleblower” stepped forward to pressure him into resuming the foreign policy of Congress. He has since caved and released the aid and is selling more missiles.
