We have another "balloon" making its way across the US headed east. It was intercepted by fighter aircraft and said not to be a spy balloon. If it were over China or Russia or a number of other nations it would be shot down. What is wrong with our people? We just let anyone float a balloon over our country and let it continue it's journey?
What is it doing, what is it over our country, what is its purpose, who does it belong to, who launched it, etc, etc.

They took pics. The balloon carries solar panels.
I can't imagine why.
Did we, (the US) ever establish the contents of the payload on the ones we did shoot down?

We? It's not "we" allowing this to happen. It's weak leadership in our government that allows this to happen.

What do you expect "we" to do? I don't happen to have an F-22 armed with Aim-9X missiles on alert in my hay pasture.

It's total horses**t that our spineless government allows this to happen but there's no a lot "we" can do.
