I should have given more thought to the possibility of alien life.
On Sunday evening, the Pentagon was informed about a flying object that was shot down over Lake Michigan. It was later revealed that the object was an "octagon." According to reports, it didn't look like a balloon.
It led to speculations that the object was a balloon that originated from China. However, General Glen VanHerck clarified that the U.S. military does not believe that UFOs are balloons.
Even if the objects were balloons, it would be strange to see a senior US military officer imply that the U.S. military doesn't know what's keeping these objects in the air. Before shooting it down, I'd imagine the military would have carried out a thorough reconnaissance operation. The US should be capable of identifying objects of interest to other countries such as China.
It's also possible that the objects were extraterrestrials.
The situation is starting to feel unsettling, as the objects that have been flying over the country are not only mysterious but also have a purpose. If the objects are being used by the US military to test its capabilities, then it raises questions about why the testing is being conducted. Also, it's possible that China shot down one of its aircraft in order to maintain an illusion.
It's also possible that China has top-secret technology that could be used to develop the objects. However, given the country's immense intelligence capabilities, it's hard to believe that the Chicoms would be able to develop such a weapon system. Also, even if they did have such a secret technology, I doubt that they would be able to send it to the US.
It’s also possible that these objects are extraterrestrials. After all, aliens are the most likely explanation for the strange sightings.
