The spy balloon is an easily digestible situation that should make it clear for most of the U.S. that China is not our friend - but what's been going on economically should be even more concerning.
I dunno - but it sure seems like some sort of psy op to get people scared about his war which they tell us we will have in 2025.... i mean really a balloon found in the middle of the US - none of the air defences (backed by trillions in defence budgets) happened to notice? And in a nation with more guns than people nobody bothered to shoot it down for 3 days!? And in the end the drama of an F22 being scrambled to shoot it down !!! Maybe im being naive or just too deep down the rabbit hole but seems awfully suspicious to me....
I am hoping that there is much more to this than meets the eye. For the amount of money we invest in intelligence and defense to have this just be a simple "whoops" would be an unmitigated disaster.
If watching it move across the US was indeed a cleverly disguised counter-intelligence operation, and we already know everything we need to know about it, then I'd say that the 3-letters are doing their job. They're not going to tell us, so we have to accept that, as much as don't like a lot of our government, they understand their mission in regards to foreign threats.
Think about this. Do we really believe that shooting it down would cause "risk to people on the ground" and that we couldn't figure out how to do that safely -- over Montana? Or Alaska? Or North Dakota? There are literally no people in 95% of those states. To me that kind of gives away that the agencies know a lot more about this than they are letting on.
I guess we'll see. Nothing is 100% for sure.
I would highly recommend to read “One Second After”. Years ago it was like a fantasy book but these days...
I think everyone needs to take a step back and look at this far more rationally. It feels a lot like an attempt to instill more China fear in the public. The pentagon has said anything gained from this balloon is limited in nature and is nothing they wouldn’t be able to get from spy satellites. To go further the US needs a reason to start a war with China and they want to do it sooner than later. As evidenced by the report just out that they are planning for it in 2025. China is in no rush to start anything they have all the time on their side. And let’s not forget who start most of the wars in this planet....
This was insane to watch the last couple of days. Amazing the way China is getting their way with the US without question.
PS betting against the USA had always been a fool's errand. This patriot, faithful to the Constitution, believes it still is!
We need areal commander in chief. The puppet in place is awful.
Or maybe the USA's military leaders were flaming counter-intelligence by allowing the balloon to continue on its course. Your commentary sounds like a shill for a hater of America's democracy than that of a patriot.
I hope no one here thinks it was really a spy balloon 🤣
I'm 100% certain the US does its share of spying over many parts of the globe. Even its own citizens. But no, you will not read about that. Does anyone remember the spying the US was doing in Germany a few years back...irreprehensible.
The 4 horses of Revelation chapter 6 are out of the barn! The fires of trial will increase exponentially over the course of the last 7 years:
Daniel 3:19 Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego: therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace seven times more than it was wont to be heated.
These last 7 years commenced here:
And like clock work Russia attacked Ukraine 4 months later to release horse # 2 which along with the supply chain breakage of the covid scam are causing horse #3 to develop!
This will culminate with the destruction of fiat cash so they can being ushering in CBDCs for full implementation by 2025:
Here is the timeline we are living thru folks:
The extractive elite is panicking. They have bet the farm on the Ukraine gambit and have come a cropper.
The days of the US dollar being the world reserve currency are numbered. Europe (Germany) is awakening to the fact that the U.S. regards the demolition of their interests as collateral damage. Welcome to the Great Game of the 21st century.
It remains to to be seen whether the clueless jellies running the UK will wake up to the fact that the US interest is not synonymous with that of the UK. Nothing is more important to these people than a man in a dress.
seems complete rubbish to me - its just a weather balloon and all the armchair generals getting super excited about rubbish
It a weather balloon. The hysteria whipped up is to prep people for a war with China. Remember all the anti Russian hysteria around the elections? The Russian laptop? Trump as Russian puppet?
That was all propaganda.
The balloon story is the same.
There's an interesting article on zerohedge about this based on this twitter feed:
Basically, the twitter writer says this is most likely not a spy balloon. Best comment on the twitter feed is:
'to plan sending a balloon like this from China to a place over US land isn’t even doable in the first place'
I'm inclined to go with this, but anything's possible. It struck me as a bit strange when I first heard of this that something so visible and hard to direct would be used in spying.
