Used to be that intrusion into our airspace by a military adversary was reason enough to bring down the intruder. What did we do back when the Japanese were releasing potentially (if mostly ineffective) bombs born by balloons towards the U.S. west coast.?

For that matter, what our adversaries did when we went “over”. Ask Gary Powers about that while visiting Soviet airspace in ’60, willya?

Also used to be that we would just take care of business and not one iota of information would appear, anywhere, the item of interest just vanished off radar to end up in some secure U.S. military facility for detailed analysis and countermeasure development.

Blabbing about it on national TV then dithering on what to do about it does not instill much confidence that we have our best men on the case, no-siree, only clowns with apologies to real hard working entertainers of that description.

Where are the SR-71’s with mounted gun to punch a few small holes such that it would (maybe) gently lose altitude? Maybe followed by a C130 at lower altitude to snag it with a towed grapple?

The “can do” spirit appears evanescent or more likely smothered by indecisive idiots.
