TEHRAN (Iran News) –For centuries the British policy of “divide and rule” had been dominating the world and world arrogant countries mainly the UK had been, and sill, using this policy in order to keep the influence over the nations for looting their wealth or controlling their governments but in recent centuries the policy of “trigger a war and make a profit” has dominated the world policy especially by its mentor the U.S. as this country tries to make profit by provoking countries for engagement in wars.
There are several examples for this policy in different parts of the world because this policy makes “fat and rich” the Western and mainly American arms manufacturers. The recent Ukraine-Russia war is one of the tangible examples for this policy of making profit by waging or triggering wars that the American arms sellers are gradually making money out of it.
On Monday a report confirmed that the U.S. wants to sell new weapons to Ukraine to help this country continue war against Russian forces.
The United States is reportedly considering a proposal to provide Ukraine with cheap, small precision bombs, which would allow Kiev to strike far behind Russian lines, as the war drags on and the West struggles to meet demands for more weapons.
Citing industry sources, Reuters said in a report on Monday that the Pentagon was considering a Boeing proposal, dubbed Ground-Launched Small Diameter Bomb (GLSDB), for getting new munitions into production for Ukraine and America’s Eastern European allies.
The GLSDB’s 150km range would allow Ukraine to hit valuable military targets that have been out of reach and help it continue pressing its counterattacks by disrupting Russian rear areas, according to the report said.
GLSDB is GPS-guided, can defeat some electronic jamming, is usable in all weather conditions, and can be used against armored vehicles.
The GBU-39 – which would function as the GLSDB’s warhead – has small, folding wings that allow it to glide more than 100km if dropped from an aircraft and targets as small as 3 feet in diameter.
GLSDB could be delivered as early as spring 2023, according to a document reviewed by Reuters and three people familiar with the plan.
It combines the GBU-39 Small Diameter Bomb (SDB) with the M26 rocket motor, both of which are common in US inventories.
GLSDB is made jointly by SAAB AB (SAABb.ST) and Boeing Co (BA.N) and has been in development since 2019.
SAAB chief executive Micael Johansson said of the GLSDB in October, “We are imminently shortly expecting contracts on that.”
Pentagon spokesman Tim Gorman declined to comment on providing any “specific capability” to Ukraine, but said the US and its allies “identify and consider the most appropriate systems” that would help Kiev.
A Boeing proposal to US European Command (EUCOM), which is overseeing weapons headed to Ukraine – the main components of the GLSDB would come from current US stores, according to the document.
Ever since the beginning of the war, Kyiv’s allies, led by the United States and Britain, have been pumping Ukraine full of advanced weapons, a step that Russia says would only prolong the hostilities.
Last Tuesday, a bipartisan group of US senators asked President Joe Biden to consider giving Ukraine advanced drones.
In a letter to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, the signatories urged the secretary to supply Ukraine with MQ-1C, also known as Gray Eagle, drones, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Washington has so far committed nearly $20 billion in military assistance to Kiev since January 2021, including rocket and air defense systems.
A report said earlier this month that the U.S. managed to conduct in-person inspections for only about 10 percent of the weapons it provided for Ukraine, weapons that require special oversight amid the conflict in the country, a report says.
Of course other Western countries are also willing to sell weapons under the pretext of helping Ukraine in war against Russia but we know that those arms manufacturers just think of selling their products and not helping the Ukrainians, and if there is no war then there will be no need to any weapon.
So one should not expect the Ukraine-Russia war to come to its end very soon because it has turned into a good market for Western countries to sell their products or test their weapons during this war and make money as most of the Western countries are currently struggling with bad economic conditions and inflation.
Unfortunately Ukraine has turned into a tool for the U.S. and its allies for blackmailing and confrontation with Russia, and the more this war prolongs, the more Ukraine will suffer and Ukrainians are better to end war with Russians to avoid more losses otherwise in the post-war era this country will face many consequences of the current war and the real winner will only be the arms manufacturers which are mainly the Westerners.
