This is a continuation of my exploration of the ExtraTerrestrial Hypothesis (ETH) for UFO phenomena. Here's a brief look at my rationale for doing such.
A logical question when considering the possibility of an alien origin for UFOs is: "What do they want?" I mean, why come all this way? In pondering this, I immediately jumped to the worst case scenario.
I'm sure you're surprised.
Let's say they're hostile. I mean, I've blogged about it before and mentioned a few cases that might make one at least consider the possibility. Books such as Leonard Stringfield's Situation Red have alleged that encounters with UFOs have been getting more violent in nature. This means everything from physical injury to dangerous interference with systems we rely on for safety. All that and we haven't even included the terrifying abduction phenomena. That and my mind is poisoned with the bubblegum, alien invasion movies of my youth (geez why can I not resist Independence Day 2?) But I digress...
There may have already been altercations between UFOs and military forces. One such example goes all the way back to February of 1942 during the so-called "Battle of Los Angeles." During this encounter, a UFO entered the airspace over Los Angeles. Given that this was only three months after Pearl Harbor, the object was met with searchlights and a hail of antiaircraft fire. The official explanation? A weather balloon. Hah! Bet you didn't see that coming. Seriously though, the Los Angeles Times published this piece on the incident, but if you're a UFO true believer, you likely won't care for its tone or content.
Then there's the Tehran incident. In 1976, an Iranian F-4 fighter was sent to intercept a UFO over Tehran. As the fighter pilot was about to get missile lock, the UFO was able to completely disable all of the plane's electrical systems. Numerous military personnel, including a full colonel, witnessed this event and recorded it. There has never been any kind of explanation for this encounter other than a genuine UFO. But if these advanced craft can deactivate the weapons and aviation systems of what was then a semi-advanced fighter, what hope do we have?
Well, basic radar waves might do them in. That's what someone said to me in a Facebook comment regarding the infamous Roswell crash. The idea being that our high-powered radar emissions somehow muck up the control systems of the so-called flying saucers. So...we could just beam them with radar waves? Sorry. It just doesn't make any sense to me. If the ETH is indeed correct, then I find it difficult to believe that sophisticated craft could cross the interstellar void and just get brought down by a radar dish circa 1947.
Of course we can't leave out the allegations about Dulce. I have been and will continue to research, write, and interview extensively about that fascinating (albeit shaky) claim. What is it? It involves an alien base inside a mesa and a firefight for control of the facility between the aliens and US special forces. Want to know more? I'll let you know when my book comes out.
On the plus side, logic seems to indicate that we're safe. If "they" wanted us dead, they'd have done it by now.
