152 UPDATE - NOTAM over Lake Michigan has been called off. Oh? Did Xi's balloon go into stealth mode? (twitter.com) (See top comment!) posted 112 days ago by catsfive 112 days ago by catsfive +153 / -1 22 comments share 22 comments share save hide report block hide replies
Apparently they did:
🛸🤔 “My theory about the airspace closures and intercepts is that the DoD cracked open that first Chinese balloon and found sensory capabilities that really freaked them out, so now they are being hyper-vigilant about any and all radar anomalies.”
Comment: The USAF pilots who intercepted the one shot down over Alaska said the object inferred with their sensors and the object itself was initially undetected by Radar. Apparently the one over Montana has been doing the same, so this does seem a valid theory.
If PLAAF tech is such that even balloons can go undetected by and mess with the electronics on an F-22, that’s an extremely ominous sign for the U.S. in the case of a Taiwan War where the J-20s get deployed…
We pay a bazillion dollars for national defense and they can't deal with some balloons?
I bet you 1/2 of the defense budget is stolen
I bet 100% including taxes
^^ knows whats up
May be higher than that. Take a close look at how "government contracting" works.
Hillary had an open server packed with intelligence, some that could have only been stolen off of a dedicated server with no outside connections. This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone.
You pay so much not because its the best but because flag waving about defence is #1 way USA is robbed of tax dollars. .
A distant enemy is threatening our freedom again, how much would you like to spend?
I'd like to spend as much as China does. And I'd like to spend it first on ensuring our nuclear deterrent can wipe the globe of everything, then second on anti-air and anti-ship missiles, and third of a small conventional force.
Okay but you already spend a lot more than they and every other nation in the world spend on their military.
Americans have all the guns in the world and they're still the most paranoid nation of all.
What did USA govt do with all that power? They haven't exactly been spreading peace around the world have they?
I would describe the US military as the club used to beat the rest of the world to the will of the people who own your country and i hate to break it to you friend but its not YOU.
Ever hear Q say disinformation is necessary. You don't want the Chinese to know exactly what we can deal with.
Is it possible the balloons are a distraction being used to close airspace while something else is happening there?
Wondering if that might have something to do with General Flynn’s warning yesterday?
This is exactly what I’ve been thinking, too!
NEW - Uruguayan Air Force is investigating a sighting of "flashing lights in the sky" over Termas de Almirón.
It moved to Tobermory Canada (which is just on the other side of the lakes).
U S Military confirms they shot down an object over the Great Lakes Area. https://twitter.com/FoxNews/status/1624877280597012481?s=20&t=7Q-YyZ6TWbXURYMmKiBU3w
They just shot down an object over Lake Huron.
I question there being anything in the sky tbh. if NORAD couldn't see the first 'balloon', was it even physically there in the first place? I am leaning towards project blue beam....hologram projection.
Not to be a fag, but it was a TFR not a NOTAM. It might be announced as a NOTAM but so are runway closures, taxiway construction, ILS outages etc…
