Chinese balloon shot down over Atlantic Ocean

The United States on Saturday downed a suspected Chinese spy balloon off the Carolina coast after it traversed sensitive military sites across North America and became the latest flashpoint in tensions between Washington and Beijing.

An operation was underway in U.S. territorial waters to recover debris from the balloon, which had been flying at about 60,000 feet and estimated to be about the size of three school buses.

Before the downing, President Joe Biden had said earlier Saturday, “We’re going to take care of it,” when asked by reporters about the balloon. The Federal Aviation Administration and Coast Guard worked to clear the airspace and water below.

    Wow! Gotta love the the media. Musta been chinese and had to be a spy balloon! Even though they haven’t yet found any pieces of it. Maybe it also came through a portal from the 1940’s when that kinda tech was being used. Lets start world war three. In my opinion the whole world media is a joke! Just sayin.

      well the chinese admitted it was theirs….so…there’s kinda that. And I wholeheartedly agree that it wasn’t a spy plane, yep it was most definitely “Jingping’s Custom Cruises” and its maiden voyage. Oh wait, that sounds ridiculous…..

    They let it travel from Alaska across the continental US and then shoot it down off the Carolina coast. Makes me wonder what’s going on that they don’t want us to notice.

      They didn’t shoot it down over land because it was big enough to cause injury on the ground if the pieces landed in a populated area. Also the Chinese admitted it was theirs but not to the real purpose.

        I get that David but they had been tracking it since January 28 and much of the time it was over Alaska which is the largest state and also the least densely populated state. That would have been the time instead of letting it fly over our military bases.

      Exactly these people are pure Evil. Probably dropping poison! It’s really hard to believe that the 2hole government including Republicans have allowed Biden, a proven criminal & demented person is allowed to ruin this country so Obama can finish his job! These people know what’s going on!

    The bigger concern is this, what and why did they allow this to distract everyone from ? What are they doing or what did they do while this floated across our Country? When they 💯% knew it was coming days before anyone in America noticed it.

    I mean ” Space Force” either was asleep at the wheel or they allowed it to continue. I’ll bet you my 750Hp Cobra if this had flown into Israeli airspace, it had been eliminated without haste.

      When I was a photographer and photo editor for a medium sized daily newspaper I went to cover a matinee performance of a magician that was in town. I arrived at the theater an hour early to introduce myself and hopefully get some pre show shots for the planned photostory. He and his assistant perfumed a couple of tricks for me and I told him I was quite impressed. He pointed at his assistant and said “She’s the star of the show. While I’m distracting the audience she’s doing the real work. ”

      They invited me to watch from backstage after I got the shots I needed. He didn’t lie, she was the act. I think governments and administrations work the same way.

    Most of uou guys really hit it on the head. If Eisenhower had been at the helm it would have been stopped BEFORE it crossed Kansas and Montana where the nuclear stuff is at. And about the distraction part of things? An old Clinton maneuver. Bill will raise his right hand and tickle Monica while he plays big no nos in china it’s been going onnnnn for a lonnng lonnng, lonnng, lonnng, loong, loong loong, loong time.

      Linda, I’ve seen you post here and you seem like a good sort. We’re all united here in our knowledge that this creature exists while society mocks us for this. The balloon is b.s. The whole story is designed to get you worked up. Then you won’t pay attention to how you’re being screwed by your own government. It’s one manufactured crisis after another now. The “Trump is a Russian agent” scam jumped the shark, so change the subject to COVID. That scam starts getting exposed and then the news media changes the subject to Ukrainian Freeedumb. That’s turning out to be a dumpster fire, so now it’s time to demonize the Chinese people. Gotta keep people freaked out and scared. They’re easier to manipulate that way. We need to stick together and not buy into this stuff.
