Colonel McGregor: The United States will not have enough ammunition for the war with China due to supplies to Ukraine

The United States will not have enough ammunition and stockpiles of precision-guided missiles for a hypothetical conflict with China over arms supplies to Ukraine. Retired Colonel Douglas McGregor shared these calculations in an article for the American Conservative.

If there is a confrontation over Taiwan, the US Navy will try to block the coast of China. But the blockade will not deprive the PRC of a major strategic advantage, the former adviser to the US Secretary of Defense warned.

“The country’s depth on a continent with friendly, resource-rich Russia to the north suggests a blockade is unlikely to succeed,” McGregor said.

The duration of the blockade will put the US Army in front of the problem of a shortage of a number of weapons. Stockpiles of precision-guided missiles and ammunition, judging by the rate of their spending in Ukraine, “will be quickly exhausted,” the expert concluded.
