We'd been out doing Saturday morning stuff and were home, relaxing, lazing, watching the waves crash on the North Myrtle Beach beach and heard a loud boom. We were curious about what that sound might be...until pb turned to FNC...bahahahahahahahahahaha...to see the report of the taking down of the spy balloon near Surf Side Beach, which is just south of here. So, I guess we're famous.

    It took them long enough! But I guess that's the "arrangement" they made with pedojoe. Let us check out all your ICBM pads, take pictures of your nuke facilities, and your strategic response bases, get all the information to the CCP, then you can shoot it down. They will "attempt" to get "pieces" out of the water, but it was hit with an AAM, which should blow it up beyond recognition. Had they done this over, say Alaska, or Montana, they could have most of it intact using guns.

    Cool!

    Biden authorized shooting it down days ago.

    The Pentagon wisely suggested (you won't hear me say that very often) that it be shot down over an area where no one could be injured or killed by falling debris, which is why they waited to shoot it down after it drifted eastward off the mainland. I read that they shot it down when it was about a mile off the coast of SC.

    File Jimmy Failla under people I never heard of.

    Of course satellites can capture pretty much the same images as the balloon. It was reported that the military covered (with tarps?) anything we didn't want the slow moving Chinese balloon to see.

    "Biden authorized shooting it down days ago."

    Interesting. Why didn't he take it down over only ONE forward warning strategic base? and not many? Maybe he was paid? Maybe the pedojoe crime family got paid? It makes no sense where it was taken down. NONE at all. Except to give the CCP a get out of jail free card. The sheep keep looking back and defending pedojoe. This is a threat against national security and pedojoe allows it? WTFO? it makes no sense. At all.

    The "balloon" went over every major SAC base where nukes are functional. Then went over the major two bases where our military would have troops fight against them (Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, and the cluster of (Charlotte Douglas International Airport Air Force. Seymour Johnson Air Force Base Air Force. Pope Army Airfield Air Force. Fort Bragg Army. Simmons Army Airfield Army. Aircraft Repair and Supply Center Elizabeth City Coast Guard. Aviation Station Morehead City Coast Guard).

    "The #ChineseSpyBalloon shows us that #China is preparing to go to war," Gordon Chang, a columnist and author who has written several books on China, tweeted on Friday following the discovery of a Chinese surveillance balloon over Montana the day before.

    "We know what the Chinese are doing," Chang explained. "They’re engaged in the fastest military buildup since the Second World War. They’re trying to sanctions proof their regime and most ominously they’re preparing China’s civilians for war."

    Chang pointed to a recent move from Chinese President Xi Jinping shortly after he was appointed to his precedent breaking third term as General Secretary at the National Congress in October, when he appointed what is being referred to as the "war cabinet."


    Why don't the sheep understand this?
    Oh.
    Yeah.
    They're sheep...
    stupid.

    I understand the sheep are not a part of looking at this at all. I get it. They love the Chinese, the CCP, and their way of life. They love that the Uighurs are being systematically murdered the same way their idol, Himmler did the same thing to Jews. They have no conscious feelings towards any other human being unless they're told to be. Yes curt, my statements stand. I've never met a "person" that had such an indifference towards any human being in my life. Even Dahlmer got an erection out of murdering people. You don't even raise a heartbeat. I'm not drunk, nor have I drank in the past fortnight. You're the person that doesn't last through basic training. They're kicked out for being a sociopath.

    Take it for what it's worth.

    You and indy isle can talk sht all you want.

    Look ! Up in the sky! It's a spy balloon! Drama queens love conspiracy theories! 😀 The real explanations lack the the drama of a good conspiracy.

    A conspiracy theory offers an explanation for an important event. The explanation generally includes a powerful malevolent group working secretly to do evil to innocent people. Coincidence and random events can make people uncomfortable, so they seek an explanation. Conspiracy theories play into underlying fears and prejudices. ~ Teri Kanefield

    Here's an example:

    "The "balloon" went over every major SAC base where nukes are functional. Then went over the major two bases where our military would have troops fight against them (Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, and the cluster of (Charlotte Douglas International Airport Air Force. Seymour Johnson Air Force Base Air Force. Pope Army Airfield Air Force. Fort Bragg Army. Simmons Army Airfield Army. Aircraft Repair and Supply Center Elizabeth City Coast Guard. Aviation Station Morehead City Coast Guard).

    "The #Chinese Spy Balloon shows us that #China is preparing to go to war,"


    Egad !! What are we going to do now !!!


  12. by Donna on February 5, 2023 8:35 am

    I've never seen such a minor event get blown so much out of proportion as this.




  13. by HatetheSwamp on February 5, 2023 8:52 am

    Donna,

    Other than you wanting the Chinese violation of America's sovereign space to be a minor event, why do you think it is?

    And, do you honestly believe that Clouseau didn't know about the balloon until it was over Montana?


  14. by Curt_Anderson on February 5, 2023 8:57 am
    HtS,
    If you were that close, why didn’t you grab your hunting rifle and shoot the balloon down?


  15. by HatetheSwamp on February 5, 2023 9:20 am

    According to Fox News, bahahahahahahahahahaha, it was 60-65 thousand feet above ground.

    So, do you really think the Flatulent Fool didn't know about the balloon until amateur posted it on the web?

    Why won't any of the progressive SwampLovers come clean on that one?


  16. by Donna on February 5, 2023 9:21 am

    I have no idea, Hts, and actually I don't give a crap.

    Another balloon of the same type was spotted over Colombia and Venezuela this past week, where there are no nukes, and to my knowkedge it wasn't shot down.

    I don't trust the government of China, but I think that in this instance they're telling the truth that they were weather balloons. China already has spy satellites that tell them everything they need to know.

    A week from now no one will be talking about this.
