Aren’t the taxpayers paying the DOD billions of dollars to quietly handle situations like this? Why are they suddenly broadcasting?
China’s not content w/just reshaping its state; it’s also, reshaping globalism.
China outspends all the West[U.S., U.K., France, Germany, etc., etc.] on
threats, enticement, recruitment, and infiltration.
(Just ask China Joe, Pigsloki, Mitch McConnel and his Politburo Chinese Family)
Hi RB and Bill- I’m not sure why they can’t just quietly take down the spy balloon, since it is not supposed to be in our airspace? Who is the intended audience for this balloon narrative? xo
A powerful, authoritarian foreign state can suppress criticism of it abroad,
and so smooth the path for its ongoing campaign to shift the country into its orbit.
Is Israel a teacher, the Chinese are following?
Goodness you’d think the Roswell NM UFO/weather balloon incident happened again….
Totally weird thought. What if Biden, Biden, and the Chinese balloon people agreed about the launch and the flight plan? Perhaps they even pre-planned when and where to shoot it down? So …(my brain doesn’t think well this way) the B’s financial … compromises will not appear to jeopardize US national security: a political ploy – given the recent levels of scrutiny into their financial improprieties?
How long do you think a spy “balloon” would last over, say, Wuhan?
First, I think this is an intelligence operation.
The question of what the USSA would do; is apparently let it run, while gathering intelligence on it as it operates.
Then, when the mission is “complete”; shoot it down.
Re-engineer it; check to see, and match records of its flight path information trail; check supposed Chinese agents on-the-ground.
Russell up a few, interrogate, and gather any physical evidence.
Now, what would the Chinese do?
Perhaps, the USSA balloon got away?
Or, was made to think it got away, while the Chinese compromised the mission.
Why. the Chinese were mad.
Hey, we let yours get a free ride.
But you shot ours down.
Then had the audacity to steel it!
But, fun to speculate.
