Chinese spy balloon flies over the United States sky


A Chinese spy balloon has been flying over the USA for a couple of days, U.S. officials said on 2/2/2023, in what would be a brazen act just days ahead of a planned trip to Beijing by U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

Mr. Blinken has announced on 2/3/2023 that he will postpone his visit to China which originally scheduled to departure in the evening.

Fighter jets were mobilized, but military leaders advised President Joe Biden against shooting the balloon out of the sky for fear debris could pose a safety threat, advice Biden accepted, U.S. officials said.

The U.S. took "custody" of the balloon when it entered U.S. airspace and had observed it with piloted U.S. military aircraft, one of the officials told reporters on condition of anonymity.

Do CCP know that flew a spy balloon over the U.S. sky violated the U.S. sovereignty 主權 and international laws?
Do CCP know what is "Bill of Rights":人權法案?
Do CCP know what is "Free Enterprise"自由企業 or they are in "Fiscal Cliff"財政懸崖?
Do CCP know their leaders should "LOVE" their people, not Kill people??

China is no longer top #1 in "population", or "world factory". India and Vietnam will replace China.

CCP's "Wolf warrior diplomacy" 战狼外交 or "coercive diplomacy高壓外交" will accelerate them to graves.

The Biden administration has indefinitely postponed Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s trip to Beijing after determining that U.S. sovereignty was violated by what it identified as a Chinese reconnaissance balloon loitering above the continental U.S., the State Department said on Feb 3, 2023.

U.S. officials on 2/2/2023 said the craft was loitering over Montana having earlier crossed Alaska’s Aleutian Islands and Canada. The Pentagon scrambled jets and at one point considered shooting down the balloon, the officials said, though didn’t over concerns that the debris posed a risk to people on the ground.
