Stay away from the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade this year!!!
What’s next, flowers?
Ok lets start launching surveillance balloons over china. Lets see how that goes.
Put a US spy “balloon” over China. Wait to see how they like that.
An hour later they’ll send up another balloon.
“China claims that its balloon was a “civilian airship” and not the spy device the US claimed it to be,”
Let’s release ballons over their airspace
Don’t they have spy satellites?
I wonder if there were any chinese ‘civilians” on board?
Not the Bee.
Also, via Breitbart:
“The Biden administration was aware of the Chinese spy balloon entering United States airspace on January 28 but tried to hide its existence from the American people until being forced to go public, according to a report on Saturday.
Bloomberg News reported that the Biden administration was “well aware” that the balloon had entered U.S. airspace on Saturday, January 28, but decided to keep quiet about it so as not to ruin a planned trip by Secretary of State Antony Blinken to China.
The outlet reported:
As it turns out, US authorities were well aware of the unidentified object that had entered American airspace on Jan. 28, that had then left and re-entered over North Idaho on Tuesday. But with such a high-profile trip at stake, keeping it on the down-low was key.”
if it was a “civilian airship”, then China was required to file a flight plan before entering US airspace
since China DIDN’T do that, US authorities have every right to assume it was hostile and a threat
maybe China can explain why they didn’t bother to file a flight plan?
I’m sure it was just a civilian effort to see whether it’s sprinkling in Billings, Kansas City, or Myrtle Beach. By the way, a NOAA radiosonde weighs 500 grams, or 1.1 pounds in Freedom Units. That’s a weather balloon. What just blew by wasn’t.
Too bad the SR-71 has been retired.
IF we had the balls, and didn't have Biden as president, I bet China would fold immediately.

Sod off, China. Your “property” was in *our* airspace without proper notification. Suck it.
So many in this administration are on the down-low!
They’ll be sending more.
A lot more, everywhere, and all at once.
It takes more than one EMP to end a civilization.
