Battleship is an action packed science fiction movie where the U.S. Navy saves the world from an extraterrestrial invasion. The plot begins in 2005 when a focused radio message is sent by a NASA communications array in Hawaii to a â€œgoldilocks planetâ€ â€“ a distant exoplanet not to far or too close to its parent sun to host life as we know it. Seven years later, the extraterrestrials answer the message by visiting the earth in five ships intending to establish a beachhead where alien reinforcements would arrive to presumably launch a full scale planetary invasion. They establish an energy shield around the Hawaiian Islands, and are on the verge of successfully sending a message home when a sole U.S. Navy destroyer trapped inside the shield begins picking off the extraterrestrial ships. Ultimately, the retired battleship, Missouri, is commandeered by a rag tag group of sailors to attack the last alien ship and the NASA communications array co-opted by the invaders. During the movie we witness President Obama doing a cameo where he talks about the national security crisis engulfing the Hawaiian Islands. All this raises the question of what would an extraterrestrial invasion be really like, and whether the U.S. military is doing anything to prepare for such a contingency?
A month ago, Professor Paul Springer from the U.S. Air Command and Staff College caused a stir when he got permission by his superiors to answer questions from an Australian television network about a military response to an alien invasion. He discussed its possibility, and mentioned ways that the U.S. military would respond to such a contingency. While he didnâ€™t outright say that a classified military plan exists to respond to an extraterrestrial invasion, he came close to being on the public record that such a plan does exist. A few years earlier, in 2006, several military contractors published a book called An Introduction to Planetary Defense: A Study of Modern Warfare Applied to Extra-Terrestrial Invasion. In it they raised a number of ways that extraterrestrials could be resisted, and what methods would be the most successful. Interestingly, one possibility was that civilian resistance could be used since the aliens would value human life â€“ either out of ethical concerns or because they viewed humans as a valuable resource. Aliens would not be hell bent on human extermination as witnessed in movies such as Battle for LA or Independence Day. An Introduction to Planetary Defense reveals that people in the military corporate world are seriously thinking about contingency plans for an alien invasion, and that a classified plan does exist.
All the above has led some to declare that an alien false flag operation has been planned, and with sufficient Hollywood conditioning of public sentiment may even be implemented. Significantly, alternative radio host Alex Jones has come out openly to declare that such a false flag operation is indeed possible. He and others cite comments from Dr Carol Rosin, a former corporate executive with Fairchild Industries who got to hear a first hand account from Dr Werner Von Braun, former NASA insider, that such a false flag operation was indeed being planned. So is an extraterrestrial invasion, whether real or of the false flag variety something we will soon witness?
Answering that question requires looking at some of the historical evidence of alien visitation on our planet. The available evidence is extensive and reveals that UFOs have been often witnessed around nuclear weapons facilities. Cases have been documented where UFOs have actively interfered with nuclear weapons and even taken them offline. Robert Salas, a former USAF Captain, revealed an incident in 1967 where between 17-20 nuclear missiles were taken off line by UFOs. Salasâ€™ testimony has been corroborated by other witnesses. Did the UFOs do this to weaken Earth defenses so that extraterrestrial could invade without nuclear weapons being used against them? The answer appears to be a resounding no since such cases extend back into at least the 1960s. Yet no extraterrestrial invasion has occurred in the four intervening decades. The advanced technological capacities of UFOs, suggest that their extraterrestrial occupants have more than enough advanced technology to conquer our world. Yet they havenâ€™t. Why not? Three scenarios come to mind.
One, extraterrestrials are more interested in monitoring our world, and have no interest in taking over. Indeed, they appear more concerned with our tendency to use weapons of mass destruction against each other. Hollywood movies such as Battleship, Battle LA or Independence Day might be exciting to watch, but they are inconsistent with evidence of alien visitation and their peaceful intentions. Alien interference with nuclear weapons, and the way in which this contributed to ending the Cold War without a nuclear conflagration, points to a scenario where extraterrestrials are highly ethical, and follow something similar to the Prime Directive popularized in the Star Trek movie franchise.
A second scenario is that the alien visitors have been operating covertly with civilians and government authorities in a long term genetic experimental program. This is similar to how modern scientists conduct genetic experiments on animal species for a variety of purposes â€“ producing better crops, creating vaccines, etc. For some aliens, humans are a primitive species with an incredibly diverse pool of genetics where biological manipulation may yield valuable information for extraterrestrial species survival or enhancement. Taking over our world in a direct military confrontation would serve no real purpose, and may even negatively impact on the alien genetic experiment underway. The alien abduction phenomenon supports this scenario.
If a genuine extraterrestrial invasion is unlikely, then what about the false flag variety? That is the third scenario, and something to be seriously considered since large scale false flag operations have occurred before. The biggest and most spectacular has been the September 11, 2001 attacks where researchers have shown overwhelming proof of official complicity in the attacks. Yet, the general American public have largely ignored such evidence and accepted the official version put out by public officials that terrorists controlled from caves in Afghanistan pulled off the attacks. 911 researchers claim that a variety of advanced technologies were used, direct energy weapons, micro nukes, thermite explosives, and even holographic technologies. Such technologies would be used again in a staged alien invasion.
Manufacturing false threats appears to be one growth industry where the USA excels, ably supported by a team of Hollywood script writers and producers. The mainstream media plays a crucial role in promoting statements by government authorities that have the general populace accept the official narrative and dismiss contrary evidence as unsubstantiated conspiracy. If you wake up one morning and find President Obama announcing the Earth is under alien attack, the most likely culprit would carry the time honored label â€“ â€œMade in the USAâ€.
