LOOK! – UP IN THE SKY- It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane. No, It’s Another “Object” That Needs to be Popped With a Half-Million-Dollar Missile

Shouldn’t We Be  More Concerned About Issues Like Homelessness, the Cost of Food and Climate Change?

A Brief Commentary by Niagara At Large reporter and publisher Doug Draper

Posted February 15th, 2023 on Niagara At Large

While Canadians are grumbling about the cost of eggs and why we are paying some of the highest prices for telecommunication services in the world, our Prime Minister is busy with his NORD partners in the U.S. shooting down “objects.”

Oh look, Another “object” up in the sky. Turn on the air warning sirens!

NORAD, as you may know, was created by Canada and the United States during another era of paranoia called The Cold War, captured so perfectly in one of the period’s greatest films, Dr. Strangelove.”

In the film, one of the military commanders warns that if they don’t stay alert to potential danger, “the Commies will catch us with our pants down and clobber us.”

And now here we are living through a new age of paranoia with these so-called “objects” up in the sky, which some so daringly and  provocatively refer to as ‘spy balloon’ from menacing forces in China or Russia.

In the case of one of four of these objects that made big headlines over the past week, there was Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, looking like his chest was puffed up and telling the world about how he granted authorization under NORAD agreement to have one of these “objects” shot down by a U.S. fighter jet in Canada’s Yukon territory.

So in the U.S. jet went, puncturing whatever it was with a sidewinder missile that reportedly cost hundreds of thousands of dollars apiece to launch.

It was a cheap opportunity to put on a show of strength for a Prime Minister that doesn’t show enough strength when it comes to such things as saving our universal health care system, climate change and cancelling the sale of Canadian-manufactured military vehicles to a murderous, oppressive regime like Saudi Arabia.

“The fact that we are seeing this (these “objects”) in a significant degree over the past week is a cause for interest and close attention,” our Superman Trudeau declared.

Perhaps it is and from the point of governments looking for ways to distract attention, it sure beats attention being paid to such down-to-home issues like the soaring cost of groceries and property taxes.

I’m not saying we shouldn’t pay any attention to balloons or balloon-like objects that may be spying on us from 40,000 feet above the ground.

But let’s get focused. China, Russia and the United States have long had satellites circling the earth that are capable of photographing people have a barbecue in their backyard.

Please Mr. Prime Minister, demonstrate more strength addressing the real issues people are struggling with down here on terra firma.

    Donald Trump’s former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen made a perfect point of the paranoia the US Congress is having over these balloons. He stated that if Congress is so concerned about the Chinese breaching their National Security with a balloon in which they should be, then they should take a hard look at the hundreds of Top Secret Documents scattered around Mara Lago and how many have been sold off to the highest bidder already. That should be on the top of their list.
