This UFO Hype Is Probably Just The US Military Lying Again

“No Longer in Shadows, Pentagon’s U.F.O. Unit Will Make Some Findings Public” reads a New York Times headline that is understandably attracting a great deal of attention today.

True to form, the Times had to hastily issue an embarrassing correction to the article after initially reporting that former Senate majority leader Harry Reid “believed that crashes of vehicles from other worlds had occurred and that retrieved materials had been studied secretly for decades”, when in fact Reid merely believes “crashes of objects of unknown origin may have occurred”.

Still though, it’s understandable that this article has captured public fascination. It reports that a Pentagon unit dedicated to the study of UFOs will begin making some of its investigations public, with the most attention-grabbing quotes coming from a former Pentagon consultant (emphasis mine):

Of course, whenever you see an article reporting anything about the US war machine in The New York Times, your response should always be intense skepticism.

A potentially more revealing quote in this Times article than what was said by Mr Davis was provided by Senator Marco Rubio (again, emphasis mine):

So the New York Times article offers us two possibilities for these UFO phenomena:

  1. That there are “vehicles not made on this earth” taking a keen interest in US military bases for some strange reason, or
  2. That this is actually some secret super advanced technology possessed by the Russians or the Chinese.

Option #1 makes little sense. Why would a species so advanced that it has mastered interstellar travel have any interest in human governments and their military forces?

Option #2 reminds one of the bogus “missile gap” narrative that JFK dishonestly sold the American public about the Soviets holding military superiority over the US in their nuclear arsenal. And anyway if a foreign government has this military technology, why didn’t they use it to become the top military superpower years ago?

Completely unexamined by the Times, to nobody’s surprise, is a third possibility: that the US war machine is lying.

As the US-centralized empire continues its campaign to militarize space, new conflicts are emerging with unabsorbed governments along that front, like the recent accusation against Russia by the US Space Force of testing a new anti-satellite weapon in space.

“In a sign outer space could be turning into a theater of war for terrestrial adversaries, it marked the first time the U.S. military has publicly charged Moscow with carrying out a space-based weapons test,” NPR reports.

It is likely that the US power alliance is preparing for such conflicts to increase in frequency and intensity in the coming years, and, as we discussed recently, winning disputes related to international law requires a robust international propaganda campaign. The US military has for years been using the mass media to inflame public interest in alleged military information about UFOs, and it’s entirely possible that it has been doing that for this purpose. It could also easily be a domestic ploy to get more Space Force funding.

As the US moves further and further into a steadily escalating new cold war against both Russia and China, we should remind ourselves that there was a UFO panic during the last cold war. In a 2002 article titled “Cold War hysteria sparked UFO obsession, study finds”, The Guardian reports the following:

So just from the few glimpses we’ve been granted about this thing from behind the veil of government secrecy, we know for a fact that US government agencies are all too happy to use public fixation on UFOs for the purposes of psychological warfare.

It’s probably also worth noting that the US military was researching the use of “flying saucers” in the 1950s. In an article titled “US military’s plans for flying saucers explained in declassified documents”, The Guardian’s Adam Gabbatt reported the following in 2012:

We are told that “the project was cancelled and the craft were never built”, but again, this is the US military we are talking about. It’s entirely possible that if the technology we’re being told to worry about does indeed exist, it is not just terrestrial in origin, but American.

It is very telling that despite the new prevalence of video recording equipment in the pockets of the rank-and-file public around the world, we have not been experiencing a huge increase in footage of UFOs and close encounters of the third kind, yet reports in the mass media of UFO involvement with military personnel have only been increasing. This fact by itself should give you very strong doubts about visitations from ET.

I don’t know about you, but I find it a lot more likely that the US war machine is lying to us once again to advance yet another pre-planned military agenda than that an extremely advanced species flew across the galaxy to stare at a bunch of terrestrial military bases.

Anyway that’s all I’ve got for now. The more the US war machine and its media stenographers tell us we should pay attention to this UFO thing, the more skeptical we should become. Eyes wide, earthlings.
