Assuming these objects over Los Angeles in 1942 were Japanese
Terror Blimps (JTBs), where did they get the non-flammable
helium necessary to keep them in the air?  Hydrogen blimps would
have handily exploded in the well documented onslaught of
American guns.

The Germans had given up on blimps as a result of not being able
to acquire helium from the United States just a few year prior
to 1942, and if the Germans (with greater resources) couldn't
get the stuff, how did the Japanese, with a much _smaller_
sphere of necessary resources and raw materials, get an
abundance of it? Moreover, if these helium (of necessity)
balloons or JTBs were the objects actually sighted over LA, why
didn't they rain death and destruction on the city when they had
the chance? The only damage incurred, by report, was
embarrassingly self inflicted with the shrapnel resulting from
the shells exploded on the surface of the mystery object and
falling dangerously back to Earth.
