CHINK KITE The+Red+Barron 23/02/09(Thu)08:02 No. 2258 ID: 7cb4c3

I live in northern Indiana. I'm disappointed the chink kite didn't even get close enough for me to see it

So this is a thread for discussion.

Did Trump really let fifty of these spy balloons go and everyone's blaming Biden because the psychic is a jerk?

Did China really use it to take pictures of your mom's old pussy?

Did they really need to use it because radar wasn't enough for inaccurate meteorological data?

Was it just to avoid the based satellite and spy plane zones?

More importantly--where are they keeping the nudes?

Some of all of the above is most likely at play. But the consistent theme to remember with this administration is that they're feckless pushovers, and so every other power in the world is going to just keep yanking their chains for fun because it shows how weak, discombobulated, and incompetent the US is. When the US is the world's unipolar superpower, everybody else with means is going to try to play king of the hill and top dog, whether it's for reals or just to keep the US on its back foot, confused, and leaking intelligence about its capabilities.

If you subscribe to the school of thought that the US plays poker, this is everybody else ganging up on a poor pile of tells and edging in on what the bluff really is.

How about the weather ballons are away tracking bird migration
Yes, H5N1 still a dangerous problem where I live on the otherside of the world
I guess china, canada and usa. All want know how birds are traveling around the globe
The study of bird migration at the moment is probably at an all time high

Also side note someone was saying japan used weather ballons in WWII that reached usa, anyone familiar with japan's unit 731s work?

As for trump, they lied to him about troops, so lying about other stuff sure why not?

I like the idea that this was just to test the power to stop them in some capacity, but honestly the risk is just too great. If Biden wasn't literally a cocksucking nigger lover they would risk being blown off the face of the Earth for no payoff really.


Just tag them...

BREAKING: Biden was so desperate to look heckin stronk they shot down a kid's balloon and apparently claimed it was another chink kite. Ayy lmao

They were only asking about the balloon, Yeah tag and tracking birds, I'm going take wild stab in the dark and agree. That would also be going on, with spooks in the bird watching groups around the world, etc....


As for want for nudes well you could try asking on /b/
just a thought

It's not uncommon for major powers to poke each other one way or another from time to time. Maybe somebody surfaces a sub that went unnoticed so as to say
>haha gotcha
or violates airspace simply to get nicely escored back without any fanfare or escalation. And of course this sort of thing happens in other venues as well, cyber this, publishing certain news or rumors, whatever else.

What's interesting is when these sorts of events not just make it in to media reporting but go on to take a dominating position in the news cycle. So you have to ask yourself why this and not any of the many other things? Well, maybe it was just that a civilian spotted it and this was the best way to stage manage. Maybe there's a deeper game of cat and mouse going on. I'm not currently in a position to speculate, but I suppose it's useful for the public to know that these things happen and that this happened to simply not be part of what the military normally looks out for, or at least so the official line goes.

Also good enough reason for some show hearings in congress, just in case there's something there or just to showboat and remind people that it looks bad on the world stage when the country goes bonker over some baloons and now mystery objects.

Honestly since there hasn't been any photographs of the other supposed balloons, I'm thinking this was just a single event. They're likely pretending there were multiples to blame Trump and feign competency...

I doubt we have an entirely accurate count of how many went over during the 2017~2021 administration; different agencies might have different numbers because of their capacity to observe them and focus, but most importantly because the commander in chief gave no f‌uck about anything that China or Russia did to undermine our security because they paid him to look the other way, but he'd have done it just for all the stroking of his ego they also provided.

As for the reasoning behind the balloons: it seems like the PRC was looking for vulnerable WiFi networks and possibly other intel that would be impossible to gather from orbit. They have satellites.

The news reports have not been very detailed about the content our military found in the recovered drone's memory.

They showed up in several other countries also.

Japan has apparently been watching them go by for years.

It seems like there had been an unusually large release of them at the time.
