Early in the Ukraine war the U.S. military ruled out the possibility of sending Patriot missiles to aid in the Ukrainians’ war effort because these systems are highly complicated and would have required either months of training for Ukrainian soldiers or deployment of American soldiers. But now that’s all changed and President Biden has signed an order to send Patriots to Ukraine. So does this mean that these weapons will be operated by poorly trained Ukrainians or that US troops will, in fact, be directly involved in the conflict?
Jimmy and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger discuss the Patriot missile system’s lackluster record of effectiveness and the massive costs associated with sending these weapons to Ukraine.
