CHENNAI: In the previous eight columns we discussed the validity of the UFO phenomenon and how efforts even at the highest levels of the American government to seek Disclosure has not borne fruit. But one question many readers keep asking me is why are they coming?
UFOs are not crossing oceans of space and time to visit Earth to see the Taj Mahal or the Pyramids at Giza. The reason can be given in one line. E=MC square. In 1945 we turned this equation into a weapon and they responded.
Since the 1940s there have been many, sometimes repeatedly, UFO incursions at American nuclear weapons manufacturing installations, test sites like Nevada, Pacific Islands, and Weapons Storage Areas like Malmstrom, Loring, Wurtsmith, F E Warren, Kirkland and Fairchild Air Force Bases as well as RAF Bases in England and nuclear bases in former Soviet Union.
But it is only in recent times that 100s of U.S military veterans who were in charge of nuclear facilities and missile bases have come forward to openly testify about these extraordinary incidents thanks to the efforts of UFO researcher Robert Hastings who after interviewing more than 150 military veterans regarding their involvement in nuclear weapons related UFO incidents at various bases around the world since the 1940s, published in 2008 the 600 page book UFOs and Nukes: Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons Sites which provided a comprehensive summary of their revelations.
This book exposed the American government’s cover up on incidents involving UFOs and its nuclear weapons and installations. Hastings and Robert Salas one of the officers involved in the 1967 Malmstrom missile/UFO incident even appeared in CNN’s Larry King live program and shared their experiences.
But as usual the American mainstream media and the government ignored these events. The American government and media finds a bunch of Jihadis hiding in the mountains of South Waziristan and Yemen plotting to attack America with AK-47 guns and RDX explosives more dangerous and news worthy than the warnings of people like Hastings. If Hastings, Salas and 150 former military officers are lying about UFOs tampering with nuclear missiles, then they must be tried before the law or their warnings must be taken seriously and acted upon. But neither of the two is happening.
American government’s official policy shrouded in secrecy and dictated by a small unelected, unaccountable group is — See no UFO, Hear no UFO, Speak no UFO. Because any acknowledgement of UFOs will inevitably lead to the release of radical energy clean, green energy technologies that will get rid of our addiction to fossil fuels, which in other words means granting Energy-Independence to 1.3 billion Indians who right now only enjoy political independence. As of now 20 American companies control the world oil market and any truth about UFOs can easily destroy that.
From their perspective as Hastings and Friedman point out, UFOs want to make sure that these children (human race) who have found a gun (atomic power) don’t create problems for them. During the Second World War humans managed to murder 60 million of their own kind. In 1945 humans tested the atom bomb. Few weeks later they dropped it on their own kind — twice. Not surprisingly, the same UFOs started showing up all over the world. In 1903 the Wright Brothers made the first manned flight, 66 years later, in 1969 humans walked on the moon. ETs would be wondering what would happen if these warlike, destructive species start colonising space?
Stanton Friedman notes that during his lectures when he asks his audience — If you were an Alien, would you want Earthlings out there? The answer has always been NO.
