Let’s Go Brandon Finally Allows Military To Shoot Down Chinese Spy Balloon

You know, once it got done gathering data across the United States

United States Shoots Down Chinese Spy Balloon

The U.S. military has shot down the suspected Chinese spy balloon that has been in the sky above the continental United States this week.

The suspected Chinese surveillance balloon was shot down on Saturday morning while it was over the Atlantic Ocean off the Carolina coast. On Saturday, South Carolina residents caught video footage of the hostile foreign country’s spy balloon being shot out of the sky.

“This afternoon, at the direction of President Biden, U.S. fighter aircraft assigned to U.S. Northern Command successfully brought down the high altitude surveillance balloon launched by and belonging to the People’s Republic of China (PRC) over the water off the coast of South Carolina in U.S. airspace,” Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin III said in a statement.

Oh, good, and over water, making recovery tougher (they’ve already said it was a huge debris field, which is sinking), though, they’ll give it a shot. Of course, China probably doesn’t care, because they got all the data they needed already. The wishy washy Secretary of Defense, Lloyd J. Austin III, said

The balloon, which was being used by the PRC in an attempt to surveil strategic sites in the continental United States, was brought down above U.S. territorial waters. On Wednesday, President Biden gave his authorization to take down the surveillance balloon as soon as the mission could be accomplished without undue risk to American lives under the balloon’s path. After careful analysis, U.S. military commanders had determined downing the balloon while over land posed an undue risk to people across a wide area due to the size and altitude of the balloon and its surveillance payload. In accordance with the President’s direction, the Department of Defense developed options to take down the balloon safely over our territorial waters, while closely monitoring its path and intelligence collection activities.

This action was taken in coordination, and with the full support, of the Canadian government. And we thank Canada for its contribution to tracking and analysis of the balloon through NORAD as it transited North America. Today’s deliberate and lawful action demonstrates that President Biden and his national security team will always put the safety and security of the American people first while responding effectively to the PRC’s unacceptable violation of our sovereignty.

Yeah, well, if they did, they would have shot it down before it even made it over Alaska. Before it had time to gather lots of intelligence, feeding it back to China. Seriously, Biden can call it “unacceptable violation”, but, what’s he going to do about it?


China is laughing. Perhaps all the way to invading Taiwan. And, what does Putin think, watching Biden be this squishy? How about Iran and North Korea?

    “Literally every regular person I know is talking about how to shoot down the Chinese Spy Balloon. It would be great if an average Joe shot it down because China Joe won’t. Regular Americans can do everything better than the government and actually care about our country.”

    What a joke. What a stupid witch.

    • Doom and Gloom says:

      She is a witch because she says Biden is China Joe?

      ‘Mama look, you won. Bullies don’t win,’ and I said, ‘Baby, they don’t,’ because we’re gonna go in there and we’re going to impeach the motherf****r,” Tlaib said Thursday, speaking of Trump, according to a video posted on Twitter by Nestor Ruiz, an activist with United We Dream.

      Tit for TAT….always tit for TAT. Deal with it cry baby or go home and polish your black powder guns that the ATF will soon declare illegal as well. Making you a FELON.

    If it was an “unacceptable violation of our sovereignty,” why did President Biden accept it until after it had left our country completely?

    The government let the Biden Embarrassment Balloon continue on its flight because our weak-minded ‘leadership’ did not want to endanger anyone on the ground as they shot it down; what if it had been a Chinese spy plane?

    In fact, this fiasco has endangered a lot more lives, including American lives, as both Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin learned that President Biden and, sadly, our military leaders are too pussified to take action.

    This was the Uvalde school shooting writ large, with the people who were charged with defending against a rogue shooter were too cowardly to do anything when it actually counted. Don’t think that this hasn’t been noticed all around the world.

      What a ridiculous claim. Just ask “strongman” and Trump “coach”, Putin how pussified the US military is.

      We get it. The threat to nuCons’ white nationalism, their anti-gay fervor and their misogynist worldview drives them to oppose any and all liberals and Democrats including the American military and anti-Russia foreign policy. The GOP viewed Russia as an enemy until 2017 when they were overwhelmed by the MAGAtism personality cult. It’s good that Americans see how weak the Republicans are.

    You guys always shoot yourselves in the goit
    Now it turns out that when Trump was POTUS. Gynese balloons entered US airspace at least 3 times.
    Only the Dark Brandon had the ballz to shoot one down

  11. Hairy says:

    Did you read that the Pentagon announced it had been blocking the data transmitted. From the nefarious balloon?
    Did you read that balloons had entered US airspace 3 times. While Trump was POTUS? Care to comment on why Trump allowed that ?

  12. Jl says:

    Brandon shooting down the ballon is the first thing he’s ever done to fight inflation…

  13. Joe says:

    Brandon is now claiming that he wanted it shot down right away but, Milley rejected the idea. Who is actually running that circus? https://twitter.com/i/status/1621975945468076032

  14. H says:

    You misread. the Dark Brandon said to shoot it down, the military advised not doing it immediately
    The military was able to drop any afat from being transmitted. By waiting for over ocean also ensured a softer crash and more likely metter recovery.

    MAGATs gotta MAGAt. President Biden is a pussy for fighting Putin’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine and is a pussy for shooting down the silly balloon too late! LOL.

    Ask Vlad the Inept about the pussification of the US military, LOL.

    MAGAts are hilarious! To MAGAts, the faux-masculine DJT, with his orange make-up, dyed bouffant hairdo, spray-tan, his manicured nails, $5000 suits, love affairs with Kim, Xi and Putin, and history of adultery, sexual assaults/ hiring hookers is the model of far-right masculinity. What a giant pussy!!

    NuCons are terrified that DonJon’s boyfriends (and others) will view the US military might as nuCons do – that is, weak and pussified. The nuChamberlains are afraid of faux-masculine bullies like Putin, Xi and Kim. For them, the only “logical” reaction is appeasement. Psychologically, this makes sense for MAGAts, since their juvenile view of masculinity dominates their thinking. BTW, a trace amount of US military might is keeping Trump’s “dom”, Putin, from defeating Ukraine, LOL. Contain Putin and Xi by sacrificing their neighbors. America First, dammit!!

    Don’t kid yourselves, there’s a reason that Xi, Putin and Kim (and global autocrats) want Trump back.
