Taking Cues from "Torchwood," Britain Has Been Stockpiling Anti-Alien War Weapons for Years

Britain has a former UFO Advisor. His name is Nick Pope. He is a former adviser to the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defense, an organization he worked with for 21 years. He says that the UK is basically building something like a “Torchwood.”

“We do have several prototype aircraft and drones and other weapons you won’t see on the news for another 10 to 15 years so if we did face a threat from the unknown then even if there is no Torchwood around now, there would be something like it by then and they certainly would have some great kit to help in the fight,” he said in an interview on MSN.
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.
