If the US military could get the budget and the means to destroy Chinese and Russian satellites if SHTF, so much the better.
China has successfully tested an anti satellite missile (they destroyed one of their own satellites, creating a huge debris problem). I have no doubt the US could destroy satellites without issues, and I'm sure the Russians probably could as well.

What percentage of that 70+ years testimony is borne of, 'flying saucers', which Arnold reiterated was misconstrued and he never witnessed "saucer' shaped objects?
I do wonder if there is any mileage in the theory that the phenomenon (whatever it turns out to be) operates in a positive feedback manner? In which it has a two way interaction with the observer which satisfies the preconception of the observer with the desire of the phenomenon to be observed.

That's an interesting thought, Tanglebones, which feeds into to all kinds of phenomena (not just UAPs but Bigfoot, Nessie, Ghosts etc) that seem to somehow 'tease' the observer, staying intangible and unprovable, almost as if being in doubt is part of what gives them whatever level of existence they have.

One thing I really enjoy about this Forum is hearing 'theories' like that discussed, especially when contributors are open to giving them a fair hearing. We can all take a stance in polarised black & white terms (Black says "It's aliens", White says "No, it's just humans"). If you'll excuse the pun, I prefer the "Greys".

A famous nonbeliever Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson tells CNN that 6 billion photos are put on Facebook every day, and is there an alien waving back at us, NO !

Tyson says extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof.
Can we just for moment talk about non USA government UFO and its beings as reports about normal common folk actually meeting different types of Alien species or should that be a new thread ?

It would be best to use another thread for that. This one is specifically focused on the US military's role and the upcoming report.

Champion I see if there is thread about it and if not I start one as was looking at another forum Alien Expanse and that had a great thread with pictures about it.

Are we looking at the Cortes destroying the Aztecs if governments admit to UFOs being real ?

Churchill and Eisenhower were worried that the acknowledgment of E.T.s would destroy religion, social, and financial institutions.

Covid almost took out the world, so can you imagine what would happen if the Pentagon says that we are not as strong as the present UAPs ?

I agree with Churchill and Eisenhower, no good can come from acknowledging the presence of UFOs.

Does anyone have an opinion ?

They are being forced to have the conversation. The phenomenon is ultimately in charge of the situation.

Seems to me you're in charge of the conversation! I dunno, no matter what is announced someone is going to be disappointed, and I doubt the Space Brothers have a message for us now.

So feinmam, you are saying the UFOs are restless and will force the issue no matter what ?

Hard to say. Military personnel are experiencing these things again regularly (that's what they are saying), and doubtless being traumatized by it, just as before in '52 when all of this happened before, and things almost came to a head. The idea then was to monitor and study it but ridicule it publicly, just as you'd expect with such a thing. But UFOs never went away, and are once again buzzing our precious means of suicide; nukes. And their means of delivery; ships and missiles. Tomorrow the phenomenon could become much more visible and destabilizing --best to open a channel of communication and try to get in front of the situation. Corbell has only just begun to leak shocking things, and pilots and others aren't going to shut up.

I ran across a quote from Arthur C. Clarke.

Two possibilities exist : either we are alone in the Universe or we are not alone.

Both are EQUALLY terrifying !

That was in the preface to Rendezvous with Rama IIRC.
To me, a volatile species like humankind being the sole example of sapient life in the universe is just too terrifying for words.

Similarly, another species with advanced intelligence but just like us, more deceitful, manipulative, morally ambiguous, murderous, cold, self-serving….
And better at it.

There are humans like that, but I can't name that group here.

A thought. The development of the human race as a species has never (as far as I can identify) faced the kind of mass 'quantum leap' of understanding of our place in Creation that we would have to get through if we all suddenly ... well, suddenly-ish ... had to come to terms with the reality of a more advanced alien race (or races) appearing amongst us. I can't imagine that we would go through some species-wide re-adjustment and then dust ourselves down and carry on 'as you were'. Everything prior in our development as a 'rational' sentient race has happened gradually over time. The shock of it, even for those who feel prepared, would be unprecedented. The exact nature of the shock would presumably depend on what they are like, I suppose.

Just musing really.....

Oh really? I’m so jaded I couldn’t give a fuck. And here’s another thing about a potential US Pentagon disclosure announcement. Carte Blanche for everyone to suddenly claim mental health stress and give up what they’re all currently doing and stay in and eat pizza. Enabled nothing gets done.

With luck, if it did happen, enough of our species would be so jaded it would be protected from the shock. We might be too busy bickering about wallpaper and sausages and all the important stuff. Fun to speculate.

People who like sausages and respect the law should see neither being made.

It would be similar to, albeit on a more localized pov, any invasion of a 'primative' culture by a more advanced civilization, the Spanish in S. America, the British in India and Africa etc

No it wouldn’t. It would just be more shit to deal with. It would be like 2 days before kids were risking selfies in front of an alien force.

Former senate leader Harry Reid tells National Public Radio is that his opinion is President Biden will give the final approval of any release of an unclassified UFO report to the public.

And, as already observed, those who have for decades said "don't trust the government" will of course start trusting the government-released information ........

By and large, people will believe what they want to believe. Objective truth is what it is. Proving it, one way or another, is unlikely to be straightforward.

It is probably always healthier to be a bit sceptical about whatever we are being told by people who are in control of society. They want to stay in control of us, and of what we know, whether that includes what we might call ETs or anything else likely to upset our species' applecart.

UFO talk that was once a taboo and political career ending death in Congress, has brought out forgotten past political people.

Two former CIA directors John Brennan and James Wolsey on podcasts have both said they have seen evidence of the unexplainable objects in our skies.

So, does that mean a yes, or a no, or a maybe ?

Real UFOs are real. You've seen them, right? So have I. Also, the historic accounts jibe perfectly. Everything is just as expected, including current situation. Best to break the news gradually. 70 years is actually gradually, though the intent was to not inform the public if that was not needed.

It means they have seen evidence that people have seen unexplainable flying objects, that's all.
