The alleged Chinese spy craft violating American airspace is part of a bigger plan.
Joe Biden dangerously compromised national security by not shooting it down at once.
A top Republican exposed how Communist China’s balloon is part of their war preparation.
Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX), chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said on this week’s broadcast of FNC’s “Sunday Morning Futures” that the balloon from China was part of the country’s groundwork for a potential “military conflict” in Taiwan.
“Look, is this the preamble to the CCP going into Taiwan?” host Maria Bartiromo asked. “What are you expecting in terms of a potential invasion there? And how will the U.S. also be affected, in your view?”
“You know, my job is to analyze and report and message,” McCaul replied. “I think the motivation and intent is clear here. They want to get imagery, get intelligence on our military capability, particularly nuclear. And they’re building quite a nuclear stockpile themselves. Why do they want to do this? Well, they’re preparing — if they don’t win the elections in Taiwan next January, they are preparing for a military conflict. And they’re trying to collect information about our military capabilities in the United States in preparation for that conflict.”
“There’s no question about it in my mind. And that’s why that balloon was so dangerous,” he continued. “And it was so dangerous for the president to allow it to go forward. Once it entered U.S. airspace around Alaska, it should have been immediately shot down. It was not. And now the damage is severe in terms of compromising national security. He can’t secure our borders, but now he can’t secure our airspace over the United States of America.”
China’s communist government still insists that the balloon was a weather balloon blown off course and later referred to it as a “civilian airship” and that America shooting it down was “an abuse of the use of force and overreaction,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said Monday.
“We have made it clear several times that the unintended entry of China’s civilian unmanned airship into the US airspace is an entirely unexpected, isolated event caused by force majeure,” Wang said. “The US downing of the airship is an abuse of the use of force and overreaction. We are firmly opposed to it.”
The U.S. government responded to the spy balloon by sanctioning six Chinese aerospace companies who are allegedly involved in the country’s spy balloon program.
“The PRC’s [People’s Republic of China] use of high-altitude balloons violates our sovereignty and threatens U.S. national security,” Alan Estevez, undersecretary of Commerce for industry and security, said in a statement. “Today’s action makes clear that entities that seek to harm U.S. national security and sovereignty will be cut off from accessing U.S. technologies.”
