Regardless of what the best way to handle the situation is, notice how the usual suspects on this board always seem to downplay anything China?

that's your perception, which is normally wrong.

China sends airplanes here, that co  do what the balloon does and better.

but there's a balloon that is hard to shoot down, and omg is the end of the work.

True, I guess I've just been imagining things.  There's no pattern here.

The usual persons would do their usual and moan and groan if it caused damaged/casualties on the ground if shot down. They are perpetual complainers.

Using that scenario, then wasn't it taken out over a remote area of Alaska?

1.1 million people live in Montana but I guess you don't care if the wreckage of a vehicle the size of 3 city buses were to kill one of them.

I've got a feeling a large missle hit would probably incinerate that

It's larger than a 747. Remember Lockerbie?

When the media runs with a version of one story that ends up being false and waits almost two years to retract and admit they were wrong, we ALL should be suspicious. But, nahh they’re not complicit and involved in anything nefarious

They're casting their bait over there, see?

Not really.  But tin foil hats have become quite the rage these days.  Maybe for a reason?
