Taking Cues from "Torchwood," Britain Has Been Stockpiling Anti-Alien War Weapons for Years
Pope said that in the event of an attack, he expected we would "quickly adapt our plans for other more current war scenarios."
Yeah, but he doesn't actually think UFOs present an actual threat, right?
"My colleagues and I said, whatever our official position -- the one we gave to the public, media or parliament, -- privately, where five per cent of UFO sightings remained unexplained, at the very least there has to be a potential threat."
So, does he believe any of the reports on UFO sightings?
"It's a case in the UK at Rendlesham Forest, in 1980, in Suffolk between two military bases. It was not a sighting of a UFO in the sky but a UFO that actually landed. Some of the witnesses described a smallish craft.
"It came on a second night and when military personnel examined the landing site they found indentations in the ground and defence intelligence staff assessed the radiation levels with a Geiger counter and found radiation levels at eight times normal.
"We told parliament there was 'no defence significance' but did so with tongue firmly in cheek because you cannot have a UFO land between two defence bases without it being of enormous defence significance."
You know what? I'm not laughing. I believe that there's probably life somewhere else in the universe. I also happen to believe that, if there is other life and they found a way to make it to Earth, they would be so advanced beyond our technology that whatever anti-alien drones we came up with would be useless against them. But I do kind of love that those go-getters in the UK are preparing themselves.
They should hire John Barrowman. He may not offer much in the way of scientific expertise, but if we were faced with an alien invasion, I have no doubt that Barrowman could charm them into submission.
