CNN host Anderson Cooper compared rioters who were involved in the Capitol raid to third-world genocides in Rwanda and Bosnia, during CNN’s coverage of the Senate impeachment trial on former President Donald Trump Tuesday night.

Genocides in Bosnia and Rwanda left hundreds of thousands of people dead. In just 100 days in 1994, an estimated 800,000 people were slaughtered in Rwanda by ethnic Hutu extremists. The Jan. 6 Capitol raid killed five people.

“We’ve seen it in Bosnia, we’ve seen it in Rwanda, where radios was telling people – you know, Hutus were telling the radio listeners that the Tutsi are cockroaches, you know, getting them ginned up for genocide,” Cooper said last month on CNN.

“And you see it in these videos where people who claim they are patriots are in the face of a police officer calling him you know… gouging out of the eye of one, squeezing one in…suffocating one in the doorway,” he continued.

Back on Jan. 12, Cooper used the same comparison by saying Trump supporters talk about Civil War “as if it’s some sort of a cleansing.”

“I was in Rwanda in the genocide briefly, I was in Bosnia, Iraq, Afghanistan… I hear people talking about civil war in America as if they know what they’re talking about. As if they know what that looks like…I am so upset when I hear these people at rallies — Trump rallies talking about Civil War as if it’s some sort of a cleansing.”

Chinese Spy Balloon: Tensions rise between the U.S. and China

A strange object was spotted Wednesday over Billings Montana. The Pentagon confirmed Thursday that the strange object was, in fact, a Chinese spy balloon. According to a report from KPAX, a western Montana news outlet, the balloon had been on the governments radar for days.

On Friday, the Chinese government released a statement saying that the balloon spotted in Billings is a “civilian airship” that’s sole purpose is used to collect research on weather and that it had just blown off course. The balloon was not shot down by orders of the Pentagon due to the risk of falling debris injuring people on the ground.

Sara Carter, who has spoken frequently on the Chinese government’s threat and expansion to the West, stated on Twitter that the United States has failed to stop China from purchasing land near military installations, vital agricultural land, as well as, allowing Chinese linked companies, such as Huawei, to install technology in cellular towers. Those cellular towers are located in Montana, along side more than 150 ICBM nuclear silos.

China said, “The Chinese side regrets the unintended entry of the airship into U.S. airspace due to force majeure.” Majeure meaning that it was out of there control. It blew off course due to limited “self-steering” capabilities according the Ministry. The ministry also stated that the balloon, “deviated far from its planned course.”

This incident is adding fuel to the fire of what is already a tense relationship between the worlds two largest economies. China already lays claim to approximately 80% of the South China Sea, and is seeking full control over Taiwan after assuming full control of Hong Kong. China’s belt and road initiative has invested copious amounts of money into building infrastructure in other countries and uses it as economic blackmail. China’s transportation of fentanyl into Mexico is yet again another example of how they are seeking to damage the US.

Is this just a weather ballon that blew off course? US officials at the White House seem to be unconvinced and will continue to monitor the balloon, as reported.

UPDATED: Statement from the Pentagon was jaw dropping when a reporter asked if the public has a right to know about Beijing’s balloon.

“The public certainly has the ability to look up in the sky and see where the balloon is,” a DOD official responded.
