The Chinese Spy Balloon flying across the heart of America
The Chinese are flying an umanned, high altitude balloon filled with surveillance equipment across some of the most sensitive locations in the United States while Biden does nothing. This story is insane. Flying into a nation’s airspace is an act of war. And yet, the reaction from the Biden Administration, to do nothing at all, is simultaneously inexplicable, indefensible, and frighteningly weak. Are all of our weapons systems in Ukraine? Can we at least hire some kids with airguns or wrist-rockets?
Everything about the Biden admin’s response to the Chinese spy balloon reeks of indecision and weakness. They can’t decide whether to shoot it down or not. They can’t decide whether to go to China or not. 1/x

US officials have admitted that they were monitoring the Chinese spy balloon since it flew over the Aleutian Islands.
So, we didn’t shoot the balloon down over water and instead let it enter our continental airspace?

China sent that thing as a test. They got their answer. Late stage republic. https://t.co/vqZYKtUSJ7

Upon closer inspection of the balloon, it becomes apparent that the truly devious Chinese have tried to disguise the balloon as nothing more than a means of sending a message appropriate to the season:
