McCaul: Just one Abrams would be enough for Germany to unleash

It is important that the United States announce it is supplying tanks to Ukraine to get Germany and other nations to do so, the new chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Michael McCaul, said on Sunday, according to Politico.

He said the U.S. needed to make moves to spur European nations into action and help Ukraine avoid an extended, bloody war of attrition. “Even saying we’re going to put Abrams tanks in, I think, would be enough for Germany to unleash.”

“If we announce we were going to give Abrams tanks, just one, that would unleash … From what I hear, Germany is waiting for us to take the lead,” McCaul said. According to him, that would create a domino effect, leading other nations in Europe to send Leopard 2 tanks as well.

Beyond tanks, Ukraine needs long-range artillery, McCaul also said.
