More than a dozen Chinese military aircraft and four naval vessels were detected around Taiwan on Friday morning, defense officials said.

The incursions by Chinese warplanes have become almost a daily occurrence in recent months, but Friday’s show of aggression comes ahead of a visit by Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

A high-altitude Chinese surveillance balloon was also spotted in the skies above Montana on Thursday, prompting some senators to call on Blinken to cancel his trip.

Speaking on condition of anonymity on Thursday, a senior official at the Pentagon told reporters that the U.S. has “very high confidence” the massive object in the sky is a Chinese high-altitude balloon flying over sensitive sites to collect information.

The balloon was seen flying over Montana, home to one of the nation’s three nuclear missile silo fields at Malmstrom Air Force Base.

However, Pentagon press secretary Brig. Gen. Patrick Ryder, declared that the balloon is “currently traveling at an altitude well above commercial air traffic and does not present a military or physical threat to people on the ground.”

Pentagon officials have reportedly decided not to shoot down the balloon, “due to the risk to safety and security of people on the ground from the possible debris field.”

Meanwhile, Taiwan’s military scrambled to activate aircraft, naval vessels, and land-based missile systems in response to China’s bold incursion around Taiwan.

The Taiwan Ministry of National Defense announced on Twitter:

14 PLA aircraft and 4 PLAN vessels around Taiwan were detected by 6 a.m.(UTC+8) today. R.O.C. Armed Forces have monitored the situation and tasked CAP aircraft, Navy vessels, and land-based missile systems to respond these activities.

5 of the detected aircraft(SU-30, J-16*2 and J-11*2)had crossed the median line of the Taiwan Strait and entered Taiwan’s southwest ADIZ, flight paths as illustrated.

China’s daring taunts towards Taiwan are reportedly happening on nearly a daily basis.

  1. If President Trump was in charge like he’s supposed to be all this shit going on wouldn’t be happening. FACT : Demonrats depleted our defense system and China is making the move.

    • Oh, yeah? Two days ago, the Herr Der Trumpkropt refused to say what he would do if China attacked Taiwan.
      We know what would happen. Nothing, except to run his mouth.
      Trumpkropt is not going to jeopardize his connections between China and his Trump International Inc. business. That is why he avoided to the question on Taiwan, and the only reason.

      Trump Records Shed New Light on Chinese Business Pursuits

      As he raises questions about his opponent’s standing with China, President Trump’s taxes reveal details about his own activities there, including a previously unknown bank account.
      President Trump and his allies have tried to paint the Democratic nominee, Joseph R. Biden Jr., as soft on China, in part by pointing to his son’s business dealings there.

      Senate Republicans produced a report asserting, among other things, that Mr. Biden’s son Hunter “opened a bank account” with a Chinese businessman, part of what it said were his numerous connections to “foreign nationals and foreign governments across the globe.”

      But Mr. Trump’s own business history is filled with overseas financial deals, and some have involved the Chinese state. He spent a decade unsuccessfully pursuing projects in China, operating an office there during his first run for president and forging a partnership with a major government-controlled company.

      And it turns out that China is one of only three foreign nations — the others are Britain and Ireland — where Mr. Trump maintains a bank account, according to an analysis of the president’s tax records, which were obtained by The New York Times. The foreign accounts do not show up on Mr. Trump’s public financial disclosures, where he must list personal assets, because they are held under corporate names. The identities of the financial institutions are not clear

  2. Somebody shd grow a pair and give those filthy Chi-Comms a taste of their own medicine

      Better think twice before shooting it down. Is that what China wants? Is it a Trojan Horse, containing more than spy equipment? A dirty bomb?
      Radioactive material?
      Better to bring it down over open water and not explode

  4. You know the Bidens have a safe place to go when we’re attacked. We’re all collateral damage. Biden and all involved in this horrid mess need impeached. Nothing ever happens. Look at all the taxpayer money used to attempt the Trump impeachments. All over lies when this administration is blatantly negligent and corrupt!!!They have already allowed so many deaths!!!!! The mandates, fentanyl, Afghan withdrawal!!!! When will it end!!!!!????
