The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. @BruceKGagnon

What was inside of that Chinese balloon?


An Air Force F-22 Raptor was scrambled to shoot down an errant Chinese weather balloon just off the Carolina coast on Saturday, putting an end to days of drama and confusion as Americans helplessly watched the alleged “spy” craft float aimlessly over the country. Beijing slammed Washington for attacking the “civilian airship.” 

Was it a spy balloon or a weather balloon?

But the real question is what was actually inside the balloon?

My sources have revealed that inside the drifting balloon where huge cartons of a particular Chinese product. China knew that Biden would be pressured to shoot the balloon out of the sky. Thus the product inside the balloon would then fall across significant portions of US territory.

Since the US waited until the balloon had moved offshore over the Atlantic Ocean before shooting it down, the product fell into the sea.

But reports are that fortune cookies were inside the balloon. Once they hit the water the cookies quickly dissolved. But the tiny paper fortunes inside the cookies have washed onto the Carolina coastline. Tourists at the beach are reporting that all the fortune cookies had the same message. 

It was:

Americans please don't try to make war with the China people

Just a friendly joke if anyone is wondering......

Another message that might be fit to this purpose is my fave cookie fortune ever, which I've carried in my wallet ever since:

Failure is feedback.
And feedback is the breakfast of champions.
