It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s a Chinese Spy Balloon…

Unfortunately for the Chinese, their balloon didn’t make it in time for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade…however, it’s made a much bigger splash than the rest of this year’s balloons.

Now I’m no balloon expert, but it seems to me that a “spy balloon” is a little outdated for 2023; especially when an open-source satellite could have given them the same intel.

The effect of this balloon is two-fold. First, it’s shown the world that the disconnect within the Chinese government has reached an all-time high. Second, diplomatic relations between the US and China have grown colder than ever and will likely be strained even further.
