How to destroy a superpower in two years or less. ** Open Borders ** Wild inflation ** Excessive spending ** Arming the Taliban ** Turning your backs on Afghan allies ** Bow to Chinese ** Create a domestic energy crisis, ** Keep the same clowns in charge of military who just surrendered to 10th century barbarians ** Promote nuclear war with Russia You just can’t make this up! After allowing a China spy balloon to float across Alaska and the continental United States for the last 10 days, the US military finally shot the balloon down after its work was accomplished.

Amazing planning by the Biden administration! Milley called the Chinese several days ago and let them know the time and pickup point.

They could have easily deployed a ship in the general vicinity by Saturday. Dems probably wanted an enviro- impact statement before the ship could leave port.

They didn't get the balloon??? Are the stocks and pillory still available? The ducking stool? Biden and his top military brass should be shamed out of office, but he (they) has (have) no shame. He belongs in prison with a significant part of his crooked family. The mess they're making is deliberate, and treasonous.

As intended. Has there been any mention where did this balloon actually launch from? Did it launch from mainland China, or off the deck of a ship off our west coast? The Pacific Ocean is awful large.

Is the slow arrival time because of the new laws restricting vessels to 10knts? A more controlled descent would left a much smaller search area, small punctures in the canopy/envelope rather than total destruction and a 60,000 ft fall.

It is sommat "Interesting" that the missile used to bring the balloon down is one first used in combat against Chinese MIGs, after they were secretly provided to Republic of China fighters during the Taiwan straits wars in 1958. They were a massive game changer in aerial combat...briefly...because one of the first ones used hit it's target, but didn't explode. The chinese pilot safely landed his jet, with the intact missile stuck in the side, The Chinese handed it over to the Russian, who quickly copied it, put it into production and soon both the Chinese and Russians had the same thing USA and allies did. "During the Taiwan Strait battles of 1958, a ROCAF AIM-9B hit a PLAAF MiG-17 without exploding; the missile lodged in the airframe of the MiG and allowed the pilot to bring both plane and missile back to base. Soviet engineers later said that the captured Sidewinder served as a "university course" in missile design and substantially improved Soviet air-to-air capabilities. They were able to reverse-engineer a copy of the Sidewinder, which was manufactured as the Vympel K-13/R-3S missile, beginning wide deployment in 1960"

I'll bet that had they asked Elon Muck, he could have figured out how to capture the balloon, retrieve it onto the deck of one of his booster landing barges, and delivered it yesterday.

The idiots in the Biden administration just throw facts out thinking no one knows more than they or would ever check Also guess there are no salvage ships on the Gulf or east coast.

The government is just making this stuff up as they go. That's contemptuous and arrogant. They think we're idiots. Why are they doing this? Because they know the MEDIA will take their outrageous, harebrained stories and spin them into fanciful James Bond yarns to which Biden can refer when he next dons his aviators and starts babbling about how the balloons are "no joke." We are being lied to on a daily basis by our own government. They are totally and completely out of control. And the scary part is they could care less.

A torn balloon? Any old fishing trawler could drag that junk back to shore. It's in 47 feet of water where a free diver could easily reach it. This revelation stinks even more than the balloon itself. They not only think we are stupid they think we are as feeble minded as Joe is.

The U.S. Navy has started to collect what remains of a Chinese high-altitude surveillance balloon after an Air Force fighter jet shot it down over the weekend. The Department of Defense announced the recovery effort Monday, stating it was taking place about 6 miles off the coast of South Carolina in about 50 feet of water, after rough seas prevented the safe retrieval Sunday. On Saturday, the U.S. Air Force shot down the suspected spy balloon over the Atlantic Ocean after it had floated southeastward across the United States. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said the mission to shoot down the balloon was conducted in coordination with the Canadian government.

The first photos of the F-22 Raptor which shot down the spy balloon have been published, as it emerged the U.S. used U2 spy planes, first deployed during the Cold War, to monitor the Chinese balloon - and reports suggested that similar balloons were spotted previously in two more highly-sensitive military sites, but the intelligence community classified them as UFOs. The U-2S Dragon Lady spy planes were enlisted as part of last week's scramble to assess the balloon because they are able to fly at extremely high altitude. The balloon was at 60,000ft, and U-2S routinely fly above 70,000ft: most fighter jets fly at an altitude between 45,000 and 51,000ft.

Ownership of U.S. farmland by Chinese nationals has risen significantly in the last decade and amounted to 338,000 acres as of 2020, according to U.S. Agriculture Department data. Since 2010, Chinese nationals have reportedly purchased an additional 75,000 acres of U.S. farmland, according to U.S. Agriculture Department data obtained by the WSJ. Although amounting to less than 1% of all U.S. agricultural land held by foreign citizens, ownership of U.S. farmland by Chinese nationals has received increased scrutiny in recent years following warnings from U.S. government officials claiming that the Chinese government may seek to use land for military and espionage purposes, according to the WSJ.

Transportation Secretary and Chasten’s wife — er, husband, Pete Buttigieg, went on NBC’s Meet the Press on Feb. 5 to preview Joe Biden’s State of the Union address. During that appearance, Buttigieg claimed that Joe Biden is just so wildly successful as president that his accomplishments cannot be easily distilled — hence Biden’s low approval ratings. Yes, Mayor Pete actually said Biden is extremely unpopular because he’s too good at his job. Buttigieg rambled out a justification of the Biden administration allowing an apparent Chinese spy balloon to cross the U.S. before shooting it down over the ocean (where, quite conveniently, no one can pick up tell-tale debris as enlightening evidence).

America's Civil War, which raged from 1861 to 1865, was by far the bloodiest conflict in our history. Original estimates put the death toll at about 620,000, including some 360,000 Union and 260,000 Confederate dead. More recent estimates of the carnage are even higher: 750,000 to 850,000. The Battle of Antietam on Sept. 17, 1862, at Sharpsburg, Maryland, still ranks as the bloodiest day in U.S. history, with nearly 23,000 casualties on both sides, including 3,675 killed in action.
