The United States plans to send Ukraine nearly 100 Stryker combat vehicles as part of a roughly $2.5 billion shipment of arms and equipment that is expected to be announced at a meeting of allies in Germany on Friday, two U.S. officials said on Thursday.
The decision to send the Strykers, which could be delivered within weeks, comes just days after Britain committed to sending Ukraine 14 Challenger battle tanks and the United States, France and Germany agreed to send dozens of armored infantry fighting vehicles, including 50 Bradley Fighting Vehicles. Germany has also been under pressure to authorize the delivery of German-made Leopard 2 battle tanks to Ukraine.
Colin H. Kahl, the U.S. under secretary of defense for policy, told reporters on Wednesday that Ukraine needed more mechanized infantry and armored personal carriers to punch through heavily fortified Russian defenses.
“The Russians are really digging in,” he said. “They’re digging in. They’re digging trenches, they’re putting in these dragon’s teeth, laying mines.”

How about a few on our southern border ?
Neocon trash don’t care about the US.
Lithuania will donate dozens of L-70 anti-aircraft guns, ammunition and two Mi-8 helicopters.
Sweden announces it will send 50 CV90 IFVs and 12 Archer self—propelled howitzers to Ukraine.
Well, it is WWIII after all.
What could go wrong?
The theory that NeoCons being Trotskyites seems more and more true every day
Putin started this by invading Ukraine on Feb. 24th
You dont need them on your southern border. All you need to do is have your President order the Border Patrol to close the border, as happened under Trump. But he doesnt want to do that.
That is a policy dispute you have with your leadership.
Armored vehicles, artillery and guided munitions are not necessary.
Uh, Trotsky invaded Ukraine in 1918. Putin is the one following his example.
U.S. Troops Went to the Border in 1997. They Killed an American Boy.

Biden still trying to save the democrats money laundering country lost cause.
Russia invades Ukraines Borders and we Go to WAR!!
Mexico Invades our borders and we hand out cash we steal from our own citizens
Some invasions are good I suppose
You’re brain dead.
The Democrats seem to think so. I suggest you get rid of them and restore sanity to your country.
I’m referring to the anti-Stalinist Trotskyites like Irving Kristol and the “New York intellectuals”
Mexico did not invade the US. The US Border Patrol was told to let people come in, and they did, the vast majority of whom are not Mexicans. This is a US domestic policy dispute, not an act of war by Mexico.
