USA Today: Blinken postpones China trip amid spy balloon row; US officials scramble to get rid of it...

“We know that it’s a surveillance balloon,” Air Force Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder, Pentagon press secretary, later told reporters.

The war machine springs to life
Opens up one eager eye
Focusing it on the sky
99 1 red balloons go by

yet again the yanks getting arsey because someone's doing to them what they've been doing to others for years

The original German lyric just has balloons, without colour (luftballons). They had to add the word "red" to make the lyric fit the rhythm in the English translation.

I try to mention at least one useless fact per day.

I've read somewhere they have not decided not shoot it down because of some political reasons, but because they do not know how to shoot it down.. And yes, Nena, it is 40y now..   :palm:

Adding another fact of the day - Japan sent balloons equipped with a large amount of explosives and boobytraps directed towards the USA.
Of course, that has been during WW2.
