The entire world was shocked as they watched China brazenly fly a spy balloon over America. It was first spotted in Alaska on January 28 and then flew across Canada and down into the United States.  The Chinese Jolly Roger  spent four days sailing over 11 American states, including 21 military bases, without repercussion. All patriotic Americans were disgusted, but the liberals who “elected” the bumbling, fumbling, Biden (Oh, sure, he’s just fine) were probably pleased as punch with his anemic response.

During the unauthorized Chinese incursion, I wondered what would Trump do (W.W.T.D.) if China launched a spy balloon on his watch.  First of all, China would never, ever, be stupid enough to challenge Donald Trump.  “You don’t spit into the wind.  You don’t tug on Superman’s cape and you, never, ever, challenge Trump.”

President Xi Jinping of China may look exactly like Winnie the Pooh, but he is not stupid.  Trump probably would have captured the balloon and painted it red, white, and blue. Then he would have boxed it up, put a ribbon on it (you always have time for a ribbon), and placed it gently on the aircraft carrier USS Gerald Ford.  Before the paint dried, Trump would have assembled a carrier task force and sailed right into China’s main harbor, probably with him on board.   Based on past comments, General Milley probably would have called Jinping and tattled that Trump was ticked off and heading his way.

Biden’s cowardly response tells Jinping that America is weak, lacks resolve, and is crippled with feckless Elmer Fudd at the helm.  According to Biden, he told his crack military commanders to shoot down the spy balloon on Wednesday.  They said, “Nope, Wednesday is not good for us.  We may get around to it on Saturday.”  Does Biden even know that he is the Commander in Chief and that the military must follow his orders? Apparently, the military thinks that Biden is a dufus, and his “orders” are more like suggestions.  Biden did use yellow Post-It notes, so some confusion may have occurred.  “Oh, you meant this Wednesday!” This is a classic case of the tail wagging the dog!

China is a bully who desperately wants to “Cry ‘Havoc!” and let slip the dogs of war.” America needs to stop wobbling and remember what Theodore Roosevelt said about bullies and war:

I abhor unjust war.  I abhor injustice and bullying by the strong at the expense of the weak, whether among nations or individuals.  I abhor violence and bloodshed.  I believe that war should never be resorted to when, or so long as, it is honorably possible to avoid it. I respect all men and women who from high motives and with sanity and self-respect do all they can to avert war.  I advocate preparation for war in order to avert war, and I should never advocate war unless it were the only alternative to dishonor.

We should cease destroying statues of great American heroes.  Those forgotten American patriots were courageous, wise and guided our country through difficult times.  We have forgotten their wisdom and now our nation may be doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past. Shame on us for remaining silent as our inept leadership dishonors our magnificent country.
