Russia Admits It Isn’t Ready to Fight Space Aliens UNCATEGORIZED October 2, 2013 David Axe

Fortunately America’s got a plan

by DAVID AXE

A Russian space official just admitted that Moscow has no strategy for combating an invasion by galactic marauders. Lucky for Planet Earth, the United States does have a plan. And it counts on Russia and America fighting together.

Sergei Berezhnoy, on the staff of the Titov Space Control Center near Moscow, said that Russian air-defense officers “have not been tasked with preparing for the contingency of an alien attack,” according to Rianovosti.

“There are enough problems on Earth and in near-Earth space,” Berezhnoy added.

A team of scientists from America’s NASA Planetary Science Division have disagreed. “While humanity has not yet observed any extraterrestrial intelligence, contact with ETI remains possible,” Seth Baum, Jacob Haqq-Misra and Shawn Domagal-Goldman wrote in a 2011 paper.

The scientists conceded that extraterrestrials could be friendly or ambivalent—but we can’t be sure. “Contact with uncooperative ETI seems likely be harmful to humanity,” they warned.

The Pentagon isn’t taking any chances, if one U.S. military instructor is to be believed. Prof. Paul Springer, a history teacher at the U.S. Air Command and Staff College in Alabama, told an Australian TV program last year that Washington has plans for even the least likely military threats—including attackers from beyond the solar system. “We make all kinds of contingency and war plans,” Springer said.

But America’s interstellar war plan is surely pretty thin. After all, the Pentagon wouldn’t know anything about the attackers until the first laser bolt or disrupter blast or photon torpedo was fired and Earth forces were already in retreat.

In the event of an alien invasion, “the first thing you would need to try to do is preserve your forces,” Springer said. In other words, hide. After that, “learn as much about the enemy as possible.” Presumably with spy satellites, drones, electronic eavesdroppers and old-fashioned sneaking around.

The aliens, meanwhile, would probably target Earth’s communications networks and its most potent weapons, nukes, Springer said.

As the world’s leading military powers, America and Russia would be the biggest targets … and the leaders in the eventual counterattack. Combined, the two countries could field huge air, land, sea and space forces numbering thousands of warplanes, millions of soldiers, hundreds of ships and most of the world’s spacecraft.

Assuming Earth survives and wins, human society could be turned upside down. Springer said former rivals could become close allies, even unified. “Keep in mind many of the greatest civilizations in human history formed to counter a common enemy,” Springer pointed out.

Plan or no, Russia is bound to join America on the front lines in the First Alien War.

Now I can sleep feeling safe :)

Seriously though, to a human being that lived thousands of years ago, our technology would be simply mind blowing and I’m not sure they would even survive the terror of it all.

Anything unusual and new may be considered the work of demons.

Technology has obviously changed Incredibly.

But men haven’t changed that much in the same time span.

Hell, the struggles in Psalms could have been written about most people’s struggles today (human spirit and mind struggles).

Where will we be in another several thousand years?

Might we be going where no man has gone before?

And would we our bodies and minds evolve NEARLY as quickly as our knowledge.

Aliens may not be as different from us as many think.

Or maybe they would be, what the hell do I know.

‘friendly or ambivalent’

But they could be friendly and ambivalent.

Actually the nukes are most dangerous to us. And the aliens would be doing us a big favor to eliminate them all.

Yeah, we’ll do really well against some advanced alien life form that has mastered inter-stellar space travel, I would imagine we will all end up in a human omelette within five minutes.

Pretty much wargamed in the “Worldwar” series by Harry Turtledove, among many others. Worldwar opens at the beginning of WWII and it is Humans vs the Lizards. Excellent read.

Yeah, *that'll* work out well.

Are we sending them back to Mars until they get their Little Green Man cards?

The alien could be a virus as was written about in Andromeda Strain.

That would be true if they were coming from a nearby star. Maybe just 200 more years advanced than us. But if 1,000 years or more advanced, food would no longer be an issue.

Unfortunately for all concerned the war is already over ... the “aliens” having detected our existence, making us a competitor and therefore a threat, launched an ultra dense neutron star stuff mass of approximately one kilometer in diameter traveling at near light speed toward the sun from several light years beyond the Ort Cloud. When the mass slams into the sun, it will nova destroying the entire inner solar system and out to Jupiter.

We’re always the last to know ...

But what if they come here seeking asylum? AND what if they have their kids with them?

Have to accept them, release them into the public with a court date.
