Trump is Running Out of Bombs

• by Kurt Nimmo

"Critical munitions shortfalls are my top war-fighting concern," says US Pacific commander Admiral Harry Harris. "We must maintain our capability to operate in contested environments."

"Priorities include long-range and stand-off strike weapons, anti-ship weapons, advanced air to air munitions, theatre ballistic/cruise missile defence, torpedoes, naval mines, and a Cluster Munitions replacement."

This is nothing new.

Obama ran out of bombs, too.
