The big white balloon entered American airspace on Saturday, Jan. 28, near the Aleutian Islands at the southern tip of Alaska. We have nine military bases in Alaska. (Two are in Anchorage, so the markers overlap.) I’m pretty darned sure our people spotted the damn thing while it was still over the Atlantic and tracked it carefully from the get go.
For two days, the balloon was over U.S. waters and zero-to-barely populated Alaskan air space carrying what U.S. officials believed were surveillance cameras powered by solar panels.
On Monday, Jan. 30, it entered Canadian airspace in freaking British Columbia where it again passed over zero-to-scarcely populated land. I’m sorry, but aren’t the Canadians supposed to be our allies?!
On Tuesday, Jan. 31, the balloon crossed back into U.S. airspace over northern Idaho. U.S. officials reportedly considered shooting it down, but decided not to risk injuring people on the ground. Seriously? Our military can accurately shoot down a falling satellite. I think they could’ve figured out how to take that balloon down safely over all those unpopulated mountains.
On Wednesday, Feb. 1, it floated over Malmstrom Air Force Base, where several nuclear missile silos are located.
So yeah … let’s not shoot it down over the Pacific Ocean OR over nobody-lives-there Alaska OR over nobody-lives-there British Columbia OR over FREAKING nobody-lives-there IDAHO. Let’s WAIT until it gets a chance to photograph our NUCLEAR missile silos up close.
According to Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, FAUXTUS didn’t ask for military options until Wednesday, FIVE DAYS AFTER IT FIRST ENTERED OUT TERRITORY! At that point he told them to shoot it down … but not until it was over the ATLANTIC. IOW, after it had had a good, long peep at us all the way from sea to shining sea. Calling this administration a clown show is an insult to clowns.
On Friday, the balloon passed over Kansas and Missouri. At this point, China’s Foreign Ministry issued a statement claiming it was just a rogue weather balloon that had strayed from its intended course by mistake. Funny thing how it managed to “accidentally” pass right over our nuclear missile silos in Montana.
Pentagon spokesperson Brig. Gen. Patrick Ryder said, “We know that it’s a surveillance balloon, and I’m not going to be able to be more specific than that. We do know that the balloon has violated U.S. airspace and international law, which is unacceptable.” … NOT unacceptable enough to do something about it when it was over the damned Pacific Ocean!
On Saturday, Feb. 4, the balloon was spotted over Asheville and Charlotte, North Carolina, where LEOs warned citizens not to take pot shots at it. “It’s flying at 60,000+ feet. Don’t try to shoot it!! Your rifle rounds WILL NOT reach it. Be responsible. What goes up will come down, including your bullets.”
At about 2:39 p.m. EST, an F-22 Air Force fighter fired a missile into balloon as it crossed the South Carolina coast. CLICK https://twitter.com/ashlynforsc/status/1621956652688711682 to see a civilian video. Military personnel are gathering the debris from the ocean.
It makes me so sad and angry for our honorable troops who have to work for the Chinese puppet in the White House and his corrupt appointees at the Pentagon.
