"The Balloon Goes Up ...."
The expression comes from WWI ....
Over a hundred years ago, in the "the War to End all Wars ...." -- reconnaissance balloons (first militarily developed in the American Civil War ...) would be launched before battles by opposing troops.
"When the balloon goes up" thus became synonymous with "the commencement of the actual hostilities of WAR" ....
With the sudden appearance, in just over a week, of one OBVIOUS "Chinese spy balloon" ... and three more, officially-termed "unidentified flying objects" -- all of them aggressively shot out of the skies by order of the White House itself -- one cannot help but wonder--
"Is someone 'signaling' that we're about to enter ... or have entered! -- an actual SHOOTING war?--
But, against whom?
Or ... the mysterious builders "of the shot-down UFOs!?"
