Cybersecurity expert Casey Fleming said the Chinese spy balloon incident signals that China’s communist regime is preparing for war with the United States.

Fleming, CEO of intelligence and security strategy firm BlackOps Partners, raised concern about the four objects shot down by the Pentagon early this month, including the spy balloon, and claimed that they all come from China.

However, speaking at a Feb. 14 press conference, National Security Council Coordinator for Strategic Communications John Kirby said the unidentified objects that were downed in Alaska, the Yukon, and over Lake Huron were not tied to spying efforts, and could just be balloons “tied to some commercial or benign purpose.”

Pentagon officials earlier said that the three unidentified objects posed no security threats but have not disclosed their origins.

“So those balloons are following the jetstream. And you can absolutely guess where they’re coming from. They’re all coming from virtually the same place,” Fleming said in an interview on the “China in Focus” program on NTD, a sister media outlet of The Epoch Times, which aired on Feb. 14.

“And they’re [China] launching these balloons … with our counterintelligence saying that it’s to basically create fear in the American people, and so on,” he added.

These actions signal that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is preparing for war with the United States, according to Fleming.

“You have to understand what your adversary is up to. To our older generations, this is what World War II looked like at the time. And this is what World War III looks like for us. It’s based on technology, building fear, psychologic, psychological warfare,” he said.

“These balloons are today’s Pearl Harbor moment, it’s very serious. … For those of us who work in counterintelligence, I’ve seen this all day, every day for decades of what’s going on under the scenes in the CCP’s unrestricted warfare strategy to eliminate and destroy the United States and the free world,” he added.

Weaponized Tools

Furthermore, Fleming called out TikTok, Shein, and Temu—application tools that the CCP has weaponized to undermine and subvert the United States.
