China threatens U.S. for not allowing its spy balloon to fly

China, it appears, does not like it when someone else – the intended target perhaps – takes issue with the flight paths of its spy balloons.

A report from the Epoch Times has documented that the Chinese Communist Party has promised it will “resolutely safeguard its legitimate rights and interests” in a controversy that saw the U.S. military shoot down one of its balloons that was floating just off America’s eastern coast.

The CCP said America’s military strike on the balloon was wrong because it was a “civilian” craft that China was using for meteorological purposes and that it was floating over the U.S. by accident.

“A Chinese spokesperson issued a veiled threat vowing that Beijing would ‘resolutely safeguard its legitimate rights and interests’ over America’s action,” the report explained.

That particular balloon first was noticed over Montana on Feb. 1, where it “loitered” over sensitive areas where nuclear missiles are stored in silos, the report said.

There were immediate calls to shoot it down, and the military, several days later when the balloon was off the coast of South Carolina, did that.

U.S. officials said, in the Epoch Times report, that China’s claims were wrong, that the balloon was, in fact, a “military” operation, and had a “device” attached that was the size of a small jet.

Air Force Gen. Glen VanHerck said the U.S. military took the “maximum precaution” to prevent it from collecting intel for China.

Several balloons reportedly have been spotted in the skies over America lately, and others have been seen over Latin America.

The Epoch Times even noted the specific threat that could come from a Chinese balloon.

Officials said it “absolutely” suggests that China’s communists were conducting a dry run for an attack using a balloon-mounted weapon.

EDITOR’S NOTE: What is behind the current war against America’s children? Why are so many adults killing their unborn children right up to the moment of birth, or even after? Why are millions of kids sexualized virtually from birth, and injected with an experimental “vaccine” proven to be both ineffective and dangerous, then as toddlers transported to events glorifying mentally ill, demonically possessed men dressed as women?

Why are America’s children systematically sexualized at school, and by transgender recruiters on social media platforms like TikTok, seducing many into “identifying” as the opposite gender, or a brand-new imaginary gender, then encouraged to take powerful drugs and hormones and have their healthy breasts amputated or undergo chemical or surgical castration?

Why are our children simultaneously indoctrinated with toxic Marxist ideologies like “critical race theory” intended to condition them to hate and reject their own country, parents, faith, race, gender and themselves? Why are they simultaneously being frightened of the future by being fed lurid, terrifying – and groundless – apocalyptic tales of the imminent destruction of the world due to global warming?

No wonder youth suicides have skyrocketed, as have depression, anxiety, addiction and drug overdoses. Indeed, fentanyl, the No. 1 cause of death of younger Americans 18 to 45, destroys multitudes of children annually.

Make no mistake: The harm being done to America’s children in this multi-front war is not accidental: Children are the primary target.

WHY? How can all this be happening in the greatest nation on earth? Who and what is behind it? And HOW CAN IT BE STOPPED?
