NOT SATIRE – Following Joe Biden’s dismal performance in allowing a giant, high-altitude, Chinese surveillance airship to cross the entire United States for eight days while spying on sensitive nuclear weapons sites, the befuddled POTUS went on a shooting spree.
First, he ordered the Chinese ‘spy balloon’ to be shot down by one of our most sophisticated stealth aircraft (F-22 Raptor) after the Chinese airship left U.S. airspace near South Carolina.
Then, within a week, Biden had three additional unidentified aerial objects (UAPs) shot down by American jet fighters over Michigan, Alaska and Canada.
One of the sophisticated Sidewinder AIM-9X missiles reportedly missed its target, so to down the spy balloon and three additional UAPs, a total of five Sidewinders were fired.
Each of these state-of-the-art air-to-air missiles made by Raytheon costs between $400,000 and $500,000.
So, the cost to the taxpayer for Biden’s impotent attempt to appear macho was well over $2 million, probably closer to $2.5 million. (RELATED: Hard Blow to Putin – No More Viagra for Russia)
Of course, the perennially weak Team Biden took a huge victory lap over their multiple UAP downings; all the while thumping their chests at how they did this, not Trump.
However, it now turns out that Trump didn’t do it because a) the Pentagon never detected any Chinese spy balloons under his watch.
And b) Trump isn’t as foolish as Biden, as at least one, if not all three of the UAPs Biden had shot down last week, were likely nothing more than hobby clubs’ balloons.
The Blaze reports:
While the government has not confirmed what pilots downed over the Yukon in northern Canada, the Northern Illinois Bottlecap Balloon Brigade said one of its balloons is “missing in action.” That balloon was last seen off the coast of Alaska last Saturday morning.
The trajectory of the balloon’s flight tracks with the object that a U.S. Air Force F-22 shot down on Saturday using a AIM-9X Sidewinder missile. Each missile costs more than $400,000.
The Blaze continues by noting that Biden himself appears to admit he went off half-cocked when he confirmed that intelligence officials believe possibly all three of the unidentified flying objects he had blasted from the sky were just civilian balloons.
“The intelligence community’s current assessment is that these three objects were most likely balloons tied to private companies, recreation, or research institutions studying weather or conducting other scientific research,” Biden said on Thursday.
In fact, The Blaze notes, according to Aviation Week, “descriptions of all three unidentified objects shot down Feb. 10-12 match the shapes, altitudes and payloads of the small pico balloons.”
So, yea, Biden allowed a massive 200-foot Chinese surveillance airship to traverse the entire United States for over a week before going on a wild shooting spree blowing three benign civilian balloons out of the sky.
All in a feeble attempt to retroactively show everyone that he is tough.
Can we say dangerous and unstable POTUS?
