The Biden administration has turned the United States into a laughing stock. They allowed an alleged Chinese spy balloon to float across the entire continental United States before shooting it down. While the Chinese Foreign Ministry said the balloon was a “civilian airship,” who is buying that excuse?
Could it be a test run for an EMP bomb attack? If this balloon was a test, the United States failed miserably. The balloon floated from Alaska to the coast of the Carolinas before the military shot it down.
But it gets even worse!
Fears escalated that China may salvage the wreckage of the balloon before the U.S. military.
Although the U.S. shot down the balloon a few miles from the Atlantic coast, U.S. officials feared China may beat them to the wreckage. An “official salvage vessel won’t arrive until a couple of days,” Daily Mail reports.
However, U.S. ships have formed a perimeter around the balloon wreckage.

Daily Mail reported:
US ships have formed a perimeter off the coast of South Carolina where the Chinese spy balloon was shot down as a salvage vessel won’t be at the scene for days.
US officials confirmed that an F-22 Raptor fighter jet took down the balloon with a single AIM-9X sidewinder missile at 2.38pm on Saturday, off the coast of Myrtle beach.
Audio from one of the two deployed jets, using the callsigns FRANK01 and FRANK02, reveals the moment the pilots confirmed the hit, telling the Eastern Air Defense Sector: ‘The balloon is completely destroyed.’
A senior military advisor told Fox News that the debris field was about seven-miles wide, with the depth of the waters estimated at 47 feet.
While multiple Navy and Coast Guard vessels are in the area establishing a security and search perimeter, the senior advisor said an official salvage vessel won’t arrive until a couple of days.
There is currently no timeline on the recovery of the balloon from the Atlantic Ocean after its presence shocked the nation while it hovered over several nuclear silos before going down.
