UFOs are the subjects of conspiracy theorists and science fiction writers, but they’ve also become more of an acceptable subject of discussion in the military in recent years. Improvements in technology and an increase in reports has prompted the U.S. Navy to issue new guidelines for reporting “Unexplained Aerial Phenomena” instead of “Unidentified Flying Objects” as they have been called for decades.
But conspiracy theorists and “alien truthers” can take off their tinfoil hats for now. There’s a sensible and clear reason for this chance, and instead of having to bury the reason in classified documents behind cover stories of weather balloons, the Navy simply released. To the chagrin of conspiracy theorists, the reason makes a whole lot of sense.
They’re trying to destigmatize them so military personnel won’t be worried about reporting them. It’s that simple.
To do this, they’re telling their service members that there may be advanced technology used by Russians or Chinese and we need to document it. This allows them to not fear they’ll be viewed negatively. It’s important that the military, whether they believe it’s extraterrestrial, inter-dimensional, or terrestrial forces using the technology, to document and study the data so they can better understand it. If a pilot or someone else sees something but hides it for fear or ridicule or punishment, they miss some of the important data.
There isn’t much to it, really. They acknowledge there are strange things in the skies. They want to know more. By instructing their people to report anything they see, they can better prepare for whatever it actually is.
Petition Capitol Hill for Term Limits
Sign the petition. We demand Congress immediately put together legislation that spells out term limits for themselves. Americans need to know who is willing to suppress their own power for the sake of the nation. This can only happen by bringing legislation to the floor.
