Experts say spy balloon impacts China’s war plans

An expert on U.S.-China relations claims that a Chinese surveillance balloon’s recent flight above U.S. territory in Montana is evidence that China is preparing its people for war.

Author and writer Gordon Chang tweeted on Friday that the finding of a Chinese surveillance balloon above Montana the day before proved that China was preparing for war. Chang has written numerous books about China. “We know what the Chinese are up to,” Chang declared. They are increasing their military might at a rate not seen since World War II. The Chinese government is preparing the civilian population for war in an attempt to evade sanctions.

As an example, Chang mentioned one of Xi Jinping’s recent policies. After being re-elected General Secretary at the National Congress in October, he quickly assembled a committee of advisors dubbed the “war cabinet”. According to Chang, author of “The Coming Collapse of China,” preparations are being made for war in China. War could break out at any moment due to its dangerous and provocative actions near its borders.

Chang in an interview says that decades of inaction against Chinese aggression in Taiwan, the South China Sea, and other places have made China careless about the consequences of its actions, like sending a spy balloon above the United States for several days. “The United States is so much stronger than China in practically every regard,” Chang added, “but the Chinese don’t view it that way.” Because we said so, the Chinese now believe that they can do whatever they want.

“After that, Chang said, “The Chinese have done a number of things that violate our sovereignty, and some of those things are acts of war, but we haven’t done anything about it. Not only in February of 2023 but also over a considerable amount of time, it has shown no signs of responding. Therefore, it is not surprising that this is the current way of thinking in China. We’ve just laid the groundwork for the next major battle in human history.”

On Friday, China revealed that it owns a surveillance balloon that it claims was a civilian research ship that was blown far off course by the winds. It also expressed regret for what had transpired.

According to Chang’s interview with Fox News Digital, there is “no chance” that explanation is genuine, and Republicans, including former President Trump, have been quite critical of the Biden administration for not shooting down the craft. Even though it is passing over a state where numerous U.S. military posts and intercontinental ballistic missile fields are located, the United States has so far decided not to fire down the balloon. They worry that doing so would endanger those on the ground.

A Defense Department spokesman, Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder issued a statement saying, “The United States government has located and is following a high-altitude surveillance balloon that is over the continental United States at this time.” Even now, the U.S. government, including NORAD, is keeping a careful eye on it.

Presently, the balloon is above the altitude at which commercial air travel is permitted. Neither its presence nor its movement presents any kind of military or physical danger to humans on the ground. The use of balloons for criminal purposes has been documented in the past few years.

Right after the balloon was discovered, the United States government took measures to prevent the theft of classified materials.
