Pentagon: The Chinese Spy Balloon Was Possibly Rigged To Explode Itself

    The aircraft could have destroyed itself and its jetliner-sized payload if necessary, a top United States general has said of the Chinese spy balloon. The balloon was shot down on Saturday off the coast of South Carolina after traversing the United States.

    US Northern Command Chief General Glen VanHerck told Politico on Monday that the spy balloon was carrying explosives to destroy itself and “its cargo.” VanHerck also confirmed earlier reports that similar balloons have entered US airspace undetected before.

    VanHerck told Politico reporter Lara Seligman that the balloon was up to 200ft (61 meters) tall, and carried a payload “in excess of a couple thousand pounds.” The general added that the balloon potentially carried explosives “to detonate and destroy the balloon” if necessary.

    A week after what the mainstream media and ruling class are calling a “Chinese spy balloon” entered US airspace, it was shot down. Joe Biden was briefed on the balloon’s journey on Tuesday, the White House said, although Biden did not publicly acknowledge its existence until Thursday, a day after it had been seen in the skies above Montana by members of the public, according to a report by RT. 

    Biden claimed he wanted the balloon shot down immediately, but the Pentagon refused stating safety concerns.

    China denied Washington’s accusations of surveillance, calling the aircraft “a civilian airship used for research, mainly meteorological purposes.” Beijing insisted that the balloon drifted off its planned course, and condemned the US for shooting it down.

    Despite the US’ enormous military budget, VanHerck said that “we did not detect those threats,” calling the Pentagon’s lack of knowledge a “domain awareness gap.” Sadly, this could mean that even more money will be stolen from the slaves to prop up the military system of destruction and control.

    VanHerck told Seligman that several balloons have flown over the US before, backing up reports in the US media on Sunday. According to anonymous government officials, one balloon crashed off the coast of Hawaii four months ago, while another passed through Florida and Texas during the presidency of Donald Trump. –RT

    Even though they constantly tell us we need to be trading our liberty for safety, they admit they can’t keep us safe. So why are we still voluntarily remaining as their slaves?
