The General in charge of overseeing North American airspace for the US Air Force stated on Sunday that he would not rule out the possibility of aliens being behind the recent spate of unidentified flying objects shot down by US warplanes. General Glen VanHerck, who is also the head of US North American Aerospace Defense Command and Northern Command (NORAD), stated that the military was still trying to determine the origin and means of propulsion of the objects, but had not ruled out any explanation yet. He added that the military would continue to assess every threat, known or unknown, that approached North America in an effort to identify it.
During a recent briefing, General VanHerck commented that the objects, which have been shot down in as many days, were being referred to as “objects” and not “balloons” for a reason. The most recent object was shot down over Lake Huron, which is located on the US-Canada border.
In related news, China has reportedly spotted an unidentified flying object over waters near Qingdao and has threatened to shoot it down. Authorities in the region have warned fishermen to be cautious for safety reasons.
In response, the Foreign Ministry spokesman for China, Wang Wenbin, accused the US of illegally flying balloons over China’s territory more than ten times since the beginning of 2022. He stated that the US needed to reflect upon its actions and change its wrong practices and that China reserved the right to take necessary measures to deal with such incidents. This marks the first time that China has accused the US of sending balloons over its territory since the US military shot down a Chinese machine earlier this month, claiming it was being used for surveillance. China has previously stated that the balloon was being used for weather research and had accidentally flown off course.
In conclusion, the General in charge of North American airspace has stated that he would not rule out the possibility of aliens being behind the recent spate of unidentified flying objects shot down by US warplanes. Meanwhile, China has spotted an unidentified flying object and has threatened to shoot it down, while accusing the US of illegally flying balloons over its territory. These events have raised questions and sparked debates about the presence of extraterrestrial life and the actions of military forces in maintaining the security of national airspace.
