On Monday, U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) and U.S. Senator J.D. Vance (R-OH), in a letter to the editor, rebutted the sophistries of a Washington Post columnist who argued that giving away America’s weapons makes our nation stronger. Senator Tuberville continues to strongly oppose Joe Biden’s blank check to Ukraine, and supports efforts to separate legislation for aid to Israel and funding for securing the southern border.

Excerpts from the senators’ op-ed can be found below, and the entire piece can be found here.

“The Biden administration’s new message fails to account for grave shortages in our stockpiles. Thanks to nearly two years of mission in Ukraine, the United States is perilously unready for any additional contingency. Anything with a solid rocket motor is in short supply, including the SM-6s that would be needed in the Pacific.”

“If we are expected to oblige every request for weapons “Made in the U.S.A.,” there would be no conflict from which we abstain. Why not send weapons to Myanmar and take a side in the Ethiopian civil war?”

Polling from Morning Consult showed that only 41 percent of Americans support further aid for Ukraine.”

“Political spin cannot obscure that Americans no longer support aid for Ukraine. Neither should the Senate.”
