    99 balloons. They had to count them all. Now they know how many balloons it takes to fill Mar-a-Lago.

    And three other “objects” which are, so far, U(ex-)FOs.

    I wonder how many flew overhead while trump was in charge. He’d say none, because no-one told him about them for fear he’d respond with a classified information dump.

    Deliberately targeting areas where civilians are present is premeditated murder.

    I’ll give you this one but I think most of the “anger” is just your standard performative outrage from the republicans who want to talk tough. They want their base to know that “If we were in charge this wouldn’t have happened because those d*mn Chinese (insert racial epithet here) wouldn’t DARE.” Of course if they were in charge they’d be pointing fingers at the Dems for letting it happen.

    Don’t like having drones in your airspace? It’s simple. Don’t hijack airliners and crash them into white houses, defence headquarters, or iconic twin towers.

    This can be a provocation and an onset of WWIII. Meanwhile China is having a hisssy fit because a balloon was found over waters…but it’s ok when they do it…❌

    Spot on, Ted. You often refer to American hypocrisy and I often object. But when you’re right, you’re right.

    These airspace violations are being (and have been under the Biden administration) appropriately handled. The only reason the media keep flipping out about it is that RepubliCONs are determined to make and keep it a political issue, i.e., Biden’s PERSONAL fault.

    Well, let’s see. We prosecute Russian spies if we catch them, so Ted would argue that we should not spy on Russia. Did I get that right?

    His Apple, Oppo or Huawei manufactured cell phone just transmitted his mugshot, sent a video of whatever the phone lens was pointed at and recorded and sent all sound files recorded while the phone has been powered on directly to the chairman for analysis.

    We’re supposed to be irrationally afraid of China spying on us, but our FTC rules are so lax that any Chinese company could just buy your info legally from a data broker. No plans to fix this, as usual.

    I think there’s a non-zero chance some of the more recent balloons are college students pulling pranks.
