  • Why Haven't We Shot Down Spy Balloon?

    Traitor Joe sells us out again!

    Why the discovery of a Chinese balloon in US skies is such a big deal

    Tensions between the U.S. and China are on the rise again after the discovery of what the Biden administration is describing as a sophisticated Chinese espionage tool flying over the United States.

    The discovery of a massive Chinese surveillance balloon over Montana, which hosts some nuclear silos, sparked a diplomatic crisis on Friday, with Secretary of State Antony Blinken quickly postponing a high-stakes trip to Beijing hours before he was set to leave.

    Senior U.S. officials across the Departments of State and Defense lodged complaints with their Chinese counterparts, underscoring the anger across the Biden administration.

      That is BS and every one knows it, and BTW it is being directed. They are controlling it (flying over nuclear sites no less).

        Why? China has satellites in orbit and can undoubtedly get a good look from there. Balloons? That sounds like something the DPRK might do.

          Wow, you guys are just obsessed with trashing Joe Biden. It's like you can't go 2 minutes without finding some reason to trash him, and everything is about Joe these days.

          In the real world, what is actually going on is that our Military leaders are advising against shooting it down at the current time due to the potential danger to civilians below and their capability to make sure nothing sensitive is breached by it. Do you really want Joe Biden to ignore the advice of his military generals on a matter such as this?

          Clearly that is not off the table, but at the current time apparently it is less dangerous to let it continue on its way.
          My brethren, do not hold your faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ with an attitude of personal favoritism. James 2:1

          If anyone thinks himself to be religious, and yet does not  bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this man’s religion is worthless James 1:26

          This you know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger; James 1:19

            What is most disturbing is their excuse for not shooting it down: that it might "fall on a house" somewhere.

            And yet they've known about it for "several days", if not longer, tracking it across the Aleutians and obviously through Canada. Wasn't there somewhere, maybe over the Aleutians, where they could have shot it down without it falling on somebody.

            Something is really fishy. Not just the fact that it's a Chinese spy balloon given free range over the continent, but that they knew about it and did nothing.

            Did they perhaps give China permission to make a "small incursion"?

              Goodness! Deja vu with you and your former president hatred! The man couldn't sneeze without you criticizing him.

                I think it could be just incompetence. These are the same clowns that orchestrated the Afghanistan pullout disaster. Maybe they're just not capable of stopping it.

                  Perhaps Jim hasn't figured out yet that Trump has long since left office, and Joe is still there "making news".

                  The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

                    I heard that it could be loaded with high explosives.

                    Again, what is it they're going to see that they can't see from a spy satellite?

                      It appears to be some sort of test or something, maybe to see how we would respond and/or how incompetent the addled brain in office really is and just how buffoonish his group of military advisers really is.

                        Trump has moved out of the WH and into Jim's head.

                            Perhaps it is sprinkling a new strain of COVID around?
