Local Montana correspondent Tim Kosinski provided timely reporting on the Montana pass-by of the Chinese airship, describing the explosive over-flight as “a hell of big deal for local residents”, which confirms the report of a shootout by a USAF fighter, perhaps as a warning shot.

The Chinese armed forces now have more intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) launchers than the US does, the US military warned recently. But it noted that the US still has a nuclear edge over its great power rival.

China is right and capable of making a "strategic response" to counter the potential provocative act, they noted.

As the trans-Atlantic world is pulled into the vortex of a McCarthyite nightmare with a renewed wave of anti-Russian and now anti-China hysterics, a wave of new “Asia Pacific” doctrines have emerged across captured states… I mean “member” states throughout NATO.

News that the Pentagon was tracking a Chinese communist spy balloon hovering over the United States this week is raising concerns about the extent of China’s espionage efforts against America and its citizens.
