(RoyalPatriot.com )- Rep. Michael McCaul (R TX-10) claimed that by spying on the country’s most important missile installations, the Chinese spy balloon that crossed the country caused significant harm to the country. Parts produced in the United States were in the payload. The recovered balloon had American-made components labeled in English.
The congressman, who serves as chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, declared that one of his top priorities is to halt the export of technology to China that is used to create sophisticated weaponry, as was the case in this instance with an advanced spy balloon that crossed three nuclear sites.
McCaul noted that the balloon passed above the Strategic Command, which is our most vital nuclear facility, in Omaha, Nebraska, as well as the air, land, and sea nuclear weapons sites in Montana.
According to McCaul, the balloon also passed above the Missouri location where the country’s B-2 bombers are stored. He said a balloon could see far more of the ground than a satellite could.
The congressman also spoke on the Republican-led Ukraine Fatigue Resolution, which asks for a stop to financing for Ukraine. It was submitted by House member Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., and it is supported by ten others.
In addition to wanting to see Ukraine win the conflict more quickly, McCaul said he is optimistic that the United States would continue to support them.
The Russian invasion of Ukraine approaches the bleak one-year milestone, and U.S. support climbs into the tens of billions of dollars with no let up in sight.
Unless Ukraine makes big victories on the battlefield, the United States is warning Kyiv’s diplomats in private that they risk losing wider Western backing.
Polling results were revealed by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, showing respondents have become less supportive of sending aid to Ukraine.
Overall, 48% of respondents support the United States supplying weapons to Ukraine, while 29% are against and 22% are ambivalent.
When asked their opinion on providing weapons to Ukraine, 60% of Americans stated they did so in May 2022, less than three months into the conflict.
