• The explosion debris should have read: "LOL."
  • How do they know it was Chinese? Weather balloons are available to the general public - anyone could have launched it. But in all probability, it was a political stunt designed to create yet one more accusation against China. No, I'm not defending China, but it seems that someone on the Democratic side of the aisle is itching to start a war with China. The more the US can accuse China of wrongdoing, the closer we edge to a war. This balloon may have been nothing but a false flag to falsely accuse China of something it never did - like the way Trump was forever accused of things he never did.

      What things have I accused Trump of that he didn't commit?

      Satellites kind of made aerial surveillance obsolete. So the military decided they may as well wait until it was over water to shoot it down. Though they're 200 miles up instead of 60,000 feet, they still have cameras that resolve images down to 5 or 6 inches per pixel. I mean, look at how much detail you can see in Google Earth images.

      Army Veteran, thanks for sharing! I'm sure if you looked at the balloons with a powerful telescope, you will see a Made in China tag. lol

      Hulk: what things have you accused Trump of that he DID commit? You're full of hate for Trump but have never given any reasons why.
  • I don't know. How do you the people stand back and watch? Tell me.

      Thanks for sharing! I'm asking the question, so you tell us. That is, if you can. :D

      Sorry, I didn't see it. If I had seen it, how would I know it was Chinese? We'll just have to wait and see what, if anything, is reported. The news report this AM said that the government (I don't remember which agency) followed it across the country and waited to shoot it down until it wasn't over any people/buildings. Actually, I'd be interested in what the difference is of data captured by the Chinese balloon and the Google Earth (etc.) satellites circling the Earth. Therein lies the mystery.
    • Jenny The Great ⭐
      It's easy to know the balloons belonged to China. The Chinese authorities insisted that China had no intention to violate airspace of any sovereign country, and how the balloons were used for meteorological purposes, which strayed off course. China’s Foreign Ministry has sharpened its tone on Sunday 2/6/2023 by saying they now reserve the right to respond after the US violated international practices.
    • notyouraveragedummy
      There may have been "people" in government that should have known that it was Chinese, but an average citizen, not a chance. That was your original question. I think my interest in what data they find collected is more important (compared to all those satellites passing overhead collecting data).
    • Jenny The Great ⭐
      I see what you mean about an average citizen. Part of the US government was aware. The latest report, the balloons were 200 feet tall. It is ridiculous how 1 balloon wandered off in South America and the one we get is able to go across the US. It sure is strange how 1 balloon spent more time in Montana, a state that has nuclear sites. I agree data was collected.
  • A fish goes rotton at the head, your president is a weak traitor. Its more a question of what he hasn't sold out, given away or destroyed. God Bless every American by the time hes finished the entire western world will be sold out.
