After successful operation in Ukraine US has secured order for HIMARS in Baltic countries, Australia, Poland, Taiwan, etc.For US army, funding Ukraine is the most effective way to spend money and an opportunity that appears once in a lifetime. For a price of a couple of tens of billions of dollars (while MoD annual budget is over 700bn of USD), it can cripple Russian army for a decade while promoting and testing their gear in combat conditions, what´s there to not to like about it? They only have to take care not to demilitarize Russia too fast, so Putin doesnt go nuclear.
Half of EU is lining to buy Patriot and NASAMs.
Sale of F-35 has propped up.
and the list continues.
