Chinese Spy Balloon



     On January 28, the US military spotted a large balloon floating in on the coast of Alaska. The balloon traveled for over 3 days until being shot down by an American fighter jet along the coast of South Carolina. The Chinese Foreign Ministry declares that it was just a civilian research ship that was blown off course by feirce winds. The US has rejected all of China's explanations and has insisted that it is a spy balloon. Chinese officials think that our reaction was very excessive. Chine is very overcrowded and many think they are searching for land trying to take over and others think they are scoping out our military bases.


     The US Navy has assigned a group of divers and other personel to investigate and recover all of the debris. The recovery will take many days and the government still does not know a lot about the whole situation. China has already been buying land in the US but we can't buy land over there and China is known for lying which begs the question of what one of their balloons was doing in our country. The ballon was seen over Montana Air Force base which is not good either. More information will come out as the US continues to investigate.


     I think that China is lying about the whole situation and that they are trying to take over the US. A balloon from another country over 7,000 miles away doesn't just show up out of nowhere particullary the US. They also aren't buying land or taking over the pork market by coincidence. I think China is a bunch of dirty liars and that something should be done to stop them.


Do you think China is trying to take over?

What do you think the balloon was for?

    • I completely agree. I think our president should have shot it down way sooner because they probably already have most information they need.

  • I think that china might be thinking of taking over but I don't think they will be able to if they try, I think that the ballon had a camera on it to spy on all of the military bases and niw that the US did stuff then they can't do much more with that ballon.

  • I do think that China is trying to take over the U.S. Covid was their way of getting their foot in the door. They started the virus to try to take over the county. Now they are doing other suspicious activity that just proves that they are trying to do something. I would definelty agree that the balloon was a spy balloon. We can't expect China to tell us the truth after everything that they have already done.

    • I completely agree with you. They are a bunch of dirty liars and all of this is a set up starting with the White House.

  • I don't think that China is trying to take over the United States. I think that the balloon was just for gathering information about the U.S. Obviously, the government needs to protect its country and maybe investigate what the balloon was for and if it's a serious danger.

  • Yes I believe China wants to invade. If our president actually had a brain, we might've shot it down earlier. It's scary to now that we let it go all the way across the United States and then finally shot it down. Biden needs to help our country more than others. This may seem like a little problem, but could lead to bigger problem. China is an evil country that needs to be stopped.

    • I couldn't agree more. Our president probably doesn't know what's going on and other people in the White House are behind it. Our president should learn to focus on our country more like you said.

  • I think the balloon might be something to worry about, they will probably plan something again like this. Thankfully the US got the balloon shot down but I think we should keep an eye out. I think they were trying to gather information from our military which can be dangerous for us. 

  • I don't think that China is trying to take over but I think that they are trying to find information from the country. I think this ballon was definitely planned because as you said, a ballon from another country doesn't just show up and they are trying to find information to use against us or for their own purposes. 

  • I think that China is not going to do anything. I believe that they just did this just to get information about us. And since tension is high right now. They might use it in case we do something against them.
