Infidel Dog Posted February 3 Report Share Posted February 3 How worried should we be about this? https://apnews.com/article/politics-antony-blinken-china-314302278a5f05bdc2df146ed5b35ec6 The Chinese say "Nothing to worry about. It's a private weather balloon blown off course." First of all to believe anything in China is "private" you'd need to be impossibly naïve. Secondly the timing of this unusual and might make one curious. Right about the time China is making angry intrusions into Taiwan air space signaling the possibility of invasion here come the weather balloons all of a sudden blowing in over America. What's also curious is apparently the weather watching winds have settled down leaving the balloon hovering over a missile site in Montana. So is it more a warning from China. Stay out of Taiwan? Some say don't be such a nervous Nellie. The Chinese have satellites to monitor sensitive sites. But balloons can hover and watch. Satellites zip overhead. Also balloons have been used to deliver ordinance in the past. Today there's the danger EMP attacks. Apparently high hovering Balloons would be ideal for that. https://12ft.io/proxy?q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.washingtonexaminer.com%2Fnews%2Fwashington-secrets%2Fballoons-called-top-delivery-platform-for-nuclear-emp-attack And now there's a second balloon moving in over Canada. https://www.barrons.com/news/canada-says-potential-second-incident-linked-to-spy-balloon-01675402508 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
