This last week, as I indicated a few days ago, has been a very strange week for space news, stories that you may have missed with all the focus on BREXIT and its implications. What I noticed, however, is a strange sense of timing hovers over them, as they’re all coming out more or less in the same time window. And, as has become a familiar pattern, curiously it’s the Russian media sources that are giving them play. Many regular readers here contributed many of these articles, so let’s start with this first one: a video of a US Army recruiment campaign, clearly referencing “combat with aliens” both at the beginning, and at the end:
Ok, so what, you say? Well, on its own it’s not too significant. But combine that with recent Boeing stupor-bowl halftime commercials, statements by General Kinney at military gatherings that we have to be ready to fight “ETs”, and other high strangeness coming out of the military-industrial complex (think Lockheed-Martin in Antarctica here), and I cannot help but get the distinct impression-intuition-suspicion (I don’t know quite what to call it), that “something is up” and that we’re slowly being prepared for “it”.
Then there was this, from Russia’s Sputnik, and I cannot help but ponder this strange article:
Now, when one reads this article in depth, there is of course no reference to “fighting beyond the stars” or “aliens” or “ET” or anything of the sort. But it is Sputnik’s choice of title and sub-title for the article that intrigues me. The title – “Space Weapons: The US Seeks to Innovate How America Fights Beyond the Stars” – does compel certain speculations and imaginations, for note the use of the present tense, not the future tense: How America Fights beyond the stars, not, How America will fight beyond the stars, &c. Shades of British computer hacker Gary McKinnon, who claimed to have hacked into US Department of Defense computers, and have found curious reference to a hidden “space fleet”. Of course, we know what happened to him: the US pitched a hissy-fit, demanded extradition from Britain, so it could throw him into a deep dark hole. Britain refused. (And that, to my mind, was suspicious in itself, in today’s terrorism and hacking-conscious age, when allies are supposed to “stick together,” unless of course, his hacking was perhaps tied to MI-6? “Just what are the colonies doing up there?” &c. McKinnon’s protection by the British government I always found to be as suspicious as the hack itself).[Bold & Italics Emphasis Added]
