US on heightened state of alert over flying objects – and it hasn’t ruled out extra-terrestrials

The phrase “an abundance caution” is a common US phrase in political speech.

This translates to a week of US Top Guns flying high and removing airborne objects that could be anything.

The US doesn’t know. But a week of national security panic has been triggered when they claim they know that object number one is a Chinese spy ball.

The US Department of Defence (DoD), spoke out in a Sunday evening news briefing about a higher level of alert.


According to the company, it has been closely monitoring US airspace and has made adjustments to radar filters to pick up smaller objects in its sky.

US downed a ‘Chinese spy ball’

What is a spy balloon?

According to DoD, recent objects pose no threat to military operations. The DoD also acknowledged that organisations and companies have objects at high altitudes for research purposes.

How much longer can the “shoot first policy” be maintained?

It will all depend on the debris collection and analysis.

The US will eventually know what it is dealing with and take a more considered view. In the meantime, it is taking no chances.

Its president is not entertaining any risk, on the political level at least.

Joe Biden was criticised for his delay in ordering the shooting of the Chinese spy balloon.

He ended up taking to Twitter to speak out against China, saying “we will act as protect our country”, while US forces raced to recover anything they had shot down over Lake Huron.

The “weak on China” charge is not one he can afford to let fly. An announcement about his presidential bid is expected in the near future.

DoD’s top brass closed Sunday’s briefing by opening a door to the headline writers and all others.

Glen VanHerck, US Air Force General, responded to a question about whether the objects in the air were extra-terrestrials during that briefing: “I haven’t ruled anything out.”

Even if it isn’t yet, the truth is there.
