Do they have antennas the size of busses that can listen to any wired communication?

Do you think China spends tens or hundreds of millions on spy balloons when they can have agents on the ground do the same thing?

You're drinking so much kool-aid your tongue is red.
This coming from a guy that doesn't understand how you can go back and look at data and understand what happened. Your view is meaningless.  :P

They were in international airspace.
So if they cross into our airspace, we should shoot them down?

If they keep going to mid continent? Yes.

So I will take that as a no.
I didn't ask if they went deep into our airspace.

If theres humans inside there must be warnings & other protocol involved
If they dont follow our orders, yes. EOS

Wed surround them & try to force land them. But if that fails, see ya.

This happens all the time. SOP NORAD intercepts before they enter airspace, then theyre warned to turn back. If they continue then we surround them. If its mechanical issues we escort them to a safe place to land. If theyre ignoring our orders or acting aggressively, the pilots & controllers decide if they should shoot it down.

What did they use to shoot them down since they presumably did not use fighter jets?

Probably weren't high altitude balloons.

Ive seen mentioned that Russia mightve purposely sent these balloons to get shot down so they could get a read on their air defense systems locations.

That is true but one side made this political right from the start. Now they have egg on their face, so the talking points have changed.
Colin Kahl doesn't have any egg on his face, because he wasn't making up any political bs.

This admin just doesn't foolishly broadcast everything. Unless it makes the previous admin look bad. In that case, it'll broadcast anything, and make stuff up if no "good" facts are available.
Ftfy.
Btw, you should try some mustard with your pretzel. Maybe start twisting a new pretzel, I don't think yours can be twisted much more without snapping.
