I think maybe they wanted to make sure it descended quick enough to land inside the 14 mile offshore international boundary line. That thing was yuge and maybe poking a bunch of holes in it might not bring it down fast enough. That's the only reason I can think of. I think they should have shot it down over land but just had a dude pull out his Ruger .22 and plink some little holes in it and let it settle down nice and slow. To bag the hardware in one piece.

Moved to a more appropriate thread.
55 or some years ago we had a problem with a thing called China White, an ultra pure form of heroin.  It was so pure, it caused countless overdoses and death. So long ago, most people are unaware of this event.  And then, of limited interest considering who was targeted and affected, so largely unnoticed as a whole unless you lived in that world and knew of the dangers.

Fast forward to the 80's and we have a new form of China White as a fentanyl derivative that was also so strong that it caused countless overdoses and deaths.  Now in the present we have just plain fentanyl, causing countless overdoses and deaths. Coming soon, an even more potent derivative of fentanyl.  All from China.  Then we also got poisoned pet food, toxic drywall and lead in children's toys.  Oh yeah, and Covid 19 ...

Am I seeing the same movie over and over again or is it just me ?

Uh-oh. An "ally" that's not "contained" enough (again).
Olaf Scholz Is Undermining Western Unity on China *
Over the past few decades, Germany has grown economically closer to China, often finding itself at odds with the United States, which has implied that Berlin is sucking up to Beijing and being too soft on China’s aggression in the South China Sea.

Oh noes. Growing concerns...
Did Germany Learn From Its Russia Trouble? The Test May Come in China.
On the eve of Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s trip to Beijing, concerns are growing that economic dependence on China is leaving Germany vulnerable — again.
