What exactly is Lavrov talking about when he says the U.S. is planning to militarize space?
They are being strangely cryptic.
Dude: The U.S. military is already there!
Did you think the Pentagon would cede the conquest of space to NASA or Elon Musk?
The most pivotal military theater in existence? … Let’s get serious.
I find this little excerpt particularly interesting: (from the linked article) “Lavrov’s speech also comes on the heels of key announcements from the United States: the plans to appoint a three-star vice-commander to ‘assist the commander of Air Force Space Command with his/her responsibility to organize, train and equip space forces’ “
By Jove, I think they are onto something here!
However, the writer is only half-way there. He correctly suggests people are falsely linking aliens to U.S. military aircraft. But he fails to suggest the sightings, or at least some of them, are likely the result of above-top-secret Pentagon platforms.
Sometimes it really is a flying saucer, not a Black Hawk helicopter.
But I’m not telling you anything you don’t already know.
It’s all in Flying Saucers!
From the article:
The abundance of secret prototypes plying American skies gives plenty of cover to government investigators and skeptical outsiders whose impulse is to dismiss possible evidence of alien life. “That said, there are those in government—including, clearly, some of the intelligence officials who worked in the AATIP—who are prepared to think the unthinkable, and say that some of these things might be extraterrestrial,” Pope said.
Nick, Nick, Nick: These are NOT prototypes, and they are NOT “experimental aircraft.” They are clearly operational platforms that have existed for some time.
From the article:
As the New York Times wrote in another piece published last weekend, the U.S. government has been searching for extraterrestrial life on and off for decades. While some information remains classified, so far as we know, we haven’t found anything particularly promising. A more likely explanation for the 2004 San Diego event could be that a government agency, deep within the United States military or the military of another nation, is simply working on new, mind-boggling technologies we’re not privy to yet. Though it may feel like a less exciting rationale for the weird event, there’s immense precedent. Much of the alleged alien activity of the past 80 years has ultimately been revealed as top secret government projects.
I vote U.S. military … we are the only nation with the ongoing, decades-long resources to field this sort of tech … oodles of black money going back to the 1960s … the biggest military budget in the world, by far … I would take it farther … we aren’t “working on” secret tech … we have perfected it. These aren’t so-called ‘experimental’ platforms; they are operational.
It’s nice to see support for an alternative to the damn ET hypothesis, which has dominated the conversation forever!
Let me read between the lines. I think what he’s saying is that the UFOs in question are likely from planet Earth. It’s all about Uncle Sam, and it always has been, from the Washington UFO encounters in ’52 right up to the present.
I guess the CNN on-air talent didn’t understand what he was suggesting?
You know, this Popular Mechanics article brings up another really important issue related to UFOs, which I discussed in Chapter 23 of Flying Saucers.
From the PM article:
There are several interesting details about the sighting here. For one, there were clearly two unidentified objects. The first was a large underwater object that was “much larger than a submarine.” For reference, the U.S. Virginia-class nuclear attack submarines are 377 feet long. The object also had some passing resemblance to a “downed airliner.” This was technically a USO, or unidentified swimming object. Although much rarer than UFOs, such craft have been sighted over the years.
In my humble opinion, the Pentagon’s above-top-secret space program is likely building huge structures on the seafloor, away from the prying eyes of satellite surveillance and far larger than could be fabricated in any hangar. They could assemble these things like giant Legos … perhaps building the individual segments on land, then transporting them to the ocean and then assembling.
That way, it would be possible to construct gigantic space structures. Because, after all, it is far easier to perform welding and other fabrication techniques in the ocean than it is in space. Then, once complete, these structures could simply be powered up and moved into deep space using field-propulsion technology. I suspect the propulsion system would be driven by a nuclear power plant similar to those used in nuclear-powered submarines
Incidentally, I believe the correct term is unidentified submerged object, right?
I vote door number two!
The second possibility is that the objects are actually operated by an arm of the U.S. government. Rumors of the federal government studying crashed UFOs or experimenting with secret technology have been rampant for decades, though with scant proof. If these were indeed secret U.S. craft, it is clear why they’re being hidden. The Super Hornet was a top of the line aircraft in 2004 and yet the object easily out-maneuvered and out-accelerated it. If America’s enemies mastered such technology, most (but apparently not all) of our armed forces would be defenseless against them.
From the Washington Post article:
“We do believe that something did happen at Roswell,” one source close to the investigation told The Post’s Jack Anderson and Michael Binstein in 1995. “Something big. We don’t know if it was a plane that crashed with a nuclear device on it . . . or if it was some other experimental situation. But everything we’ve seen so far points to an attempt on the part of the Air Force to lead anybody that looks at this down another track.”
Well, well, well … are people finally starting to catch on? I vote “other experimental situation.”
We’re talking about a 70-year-old conspiracy that’s just about to come crashing down.
Because, remember: Conspiracies are created and maintained by human beings. Human beings are fallible, sometimes catastrophically so. Hence, conspiracies are fallible.
And, did I mention, it’s all in Flying Saucers?!
I fail to see ANY MENTION of the very real possibility that these vehicles are of U.S. origin and the reason the program funding ended was because revealing this program represents a threat to national security.
From the article:
“Was this China or Russia trying to do something or has some propulsion system we are not familiar with?” said a former staffer who spoke with POLITICO on condition of anonymity.
Or, duh … are they of U.S. origin?!
The answer is in Flying Saucers!
Yet another article about the recent UFO revelations:
From the article:
But Elizondo said the only thing that had ended was the effort’s government funding, which dried up in 2012. From then on, Elizondo said in an interview, he worked with officials from the Navy and the CIA. He continued to work out of his Pentagon office until this past October, when he resigned to protest what he characterized as excessive secrecy and internal opposition.
There is one very plausible explanation for this “internal opposition” to the program: It threatened to expose a 70-year-old conspiracy in which the U.S. military has built and perfected a fleet of above-top-secret field propulsion vehicles.
It’s all in Flying Saucers.
