According to him, Ukraine is an example of the failure of containment, and Taiwan is much more important to the security and well-being of the United States. “All our spare tanks should go to Taipei,” Samet wrote.
He noted that the geopolitical center of gravity has already shifted to the Indo-Pacific region. A significant part of American interests is also concentrated here. At the same time, the Republican Party believes that the United States is not making enough efforts to fight China, the observer stressed.
At the end of the post, Samet concludes that sending American tanks to Kyiv would be a mistake.
Earlier, the Pentagon said that it sees no point in supplying Ukraine with Abrams tanks due to difficulties in their maintenance and high cost. In exchange, they decided to provide Kyiv with the Bradley BMP.
And recently, US Army Lt. Col. Daniel Davis, in an article for 19FortyFive, noted that the supply of heavy armored vehicles will not help Ukraine defeat Russia. According to him, wars are fought, and won or lost, by people, not by machines and weapons.
