While the world is eager to see an end to Ukraine-Russia war because of global problems, some countries predominantly the U.S. prefer the war to continue in order to sell their arms to Ukraine or other countries which are afraid of future wars.

TEHRAN (Iran News) –While the world is eager to see an end to Ukraine-Russia war because of global problems, some countries predominantly the U.S. prefer the war to continue in order to sell their arms to Ukraine or other countries which are afraid of future wars.

According to reports, the U.S. government in recent months by several approvals has eased flooding weapons to Ukraine while the world is waiting for the end of this devastating war which has affected world economy in all aspects.

On Friday a report claimed that the U.S. weapons manufacturers are profiting from the Ukraine war with Russia, with massive increases in procurement orders for U.S. weaponry being earmarked for Ukraine’s military.

U.S. military officials said that the Pentagon was getting more requests for weapons, including the high-tech, multiple-launch rocket system that Ukrainian forces have successfully used against Russian ammunition depots and other supplies, The Associated Press reported.

The officials said on Friday U.S. Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment Dr. William A. LaPlante told reporters that the Pentagon has been working with the defense industry to increase production lines to meet both American and international demands for certain weapons.

LaPlante said some countries have placed buying orders for the High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems, (HIMARS).

He added that the U.S. has to both replace the HIMARS systems it sent to Ukraine and predicted the future demands in foreign sales.

The Pentagon said it is already working to replace about $7 billion in weapons and equipment that was taken off the shelves so it could be delivered quickly to Ukraine. About $1.2 billion of that has already been contracted, and roughly half of that was for Stinger missiles.

Congress provided a total of $12.5 billion for such replacements so far this year, as well as another $6 billion to buy weapons and equipment directly from industry to send to Ukraine, according to the AP report.

Some of the funds will be spent to invest in the defense industrial base so that companies can either expand or speed up their production.

“We remain committed to getting things on contract as quickly as possible, ultimately to send a clear and persistent demand signal to our partners in industry,” said LaPlante. As an example, he said, right now industry is producing about 14,400 rounds of ammunition for the Howitzer artillery gun every month, but the plan is to work up to 36,000 a month in about three years.

A senior Pentagon official revealed last month that the U.S. military had quietly been supplying the Ukrainian forces with High-speed Anti-Radiation Missiles (HARM) for some time to target Russian radar systems, Politico reported.

“When we first announced the initial provision of HARM missiles, the way that we characterized it in the announcement was not specific. We described that we were providing a counter-radar capability,” the official was quoted as saying.

It seems the U.S. does not like the war to end especially now that Ukrainian forces have taken back some areas from Russian forces.

Ukraine is using HARM missiles to take out Russian weapons systems, according to a report published last month by The Hill.

The Pentagon has supplied large amounts of weaponry and ammunition to Ukraine. The U.S. military has also confirmed the delivery of American anti-radar missiles to Ukraine in a bid to facilitate the targeting of Russian radar systems by Ukrainian warplanes.

This has been the habit of the U.S. to fan the flame of war or conflicts in any part of the world and it is not a new matter that it wants Ukraine to fight till the victory which seems difficult and time-consuming.

Americans have always tried to sell their weapons through waging wars or encouraging the nations to start wars because the big arms manufacturers are in the U.S. and they make billions of dollars per year through selling their weapons and the war between Ukraine and Russia is a good opportunity for the American arms manufacturers to sell more weapons even to some countries which do not have strong army and fear of future wars.

The war has frightened and encouraged countries like Germany, Sweden and Norway to strengthen their military powers for possible future invasions to their countries.

In recent days we have seen the tension between China and Taiwan has escalated and the U.S. government has decided to sell billions of dollars of weapons to this tiny country which is a mere profit for the U.S. and a possible war between these two countries, although Taiwan is legally part of China.

The United States has reportedly approved the potential sale of $1.1bn in weapons to Taiwan in a move likely worsen already heightened tensions between Washington and Beijing.

The announcement came as two Chinese fighter jets crossed the median line of the Taiwan Strait, which normally serves as an unofficial barrier between the two sides, Taiwan’s defense ministry said.

So we cannot expect any end to war in Ukraine because of the financial and even political gains of this war and unfortunately Ukrainians have fallen in the trap of the U.S. and blindly follow what the U.S. and its allies say because even Ukraine wins the war, it is the real loser because they have to repay the for the purchased arms as we know a cat does not catch mouse for the sake of God and the U.S. is seeking profit from this war like what the Associated Press report has revealed the greed of the U.S. and even other European states for taking advantage of this war.
