Putin has spent more than a decade building up the Russian military and positioning it to be, at the very least, a military Sword of Damocles over the heads of Europe. His recent proposals for an agreement with the West are nothing short of an attempt at armed extortion. If the U.S. and its NATO allies are to deter Moscow’s threats of aggression, they must do more to strengthen their military posture. Washington should make it a priority to ensure that Poland, a NATO ally, has all the U.S.-made military equipment and training it has requested. Warsaw has formally requested the purchase of a sufficient number of M1 Abrams main battle tanks. DoD needs to act now on Poland’s request to acquire the M1 Abrams tank. The sale must move forward expeditiously. Congress should insist that the Biden administration act now. I have written more on this subject here.
