If that impudent response from the O'Biden administration didn't get your attention, nothing will. Popping a Chinese "weather balloon" after traversing the USA gathering Intel for 4 days with a Sidewinder over salt water was somewhere around "extremely ignorant". This was an "in your face", intentional act of the behalf of the current administration. They knew that nothing would be left to inspect. That is why it was destroyed over salt water and why they used a Sidewinder. If they wanted any Intel, they would have taken it down early on with a couple of 20mm rounds over WY. If you think we haven't been sold out. You better think again. That balloon was simply a probe. Maybe the next one will have a little something more interesting in it. An EMP device or Bio Weapon will both yield the same results, with an EMP device being most likely. With their burgeoning population, it is imperative that the Chinese have our natural resources. That is their objective. The political prostitutes that should be representing the interest of this country have either been compromised or bought out long ago. Best plan accordingly.
