Expert warns of UFO activity during London Olympics
Press TV ^ | Jun 9, 2012 | staff

Posted on 06/09/2012 11:54:32 AM PDT by gandalftb

“With the summer of mass events we are all on high alert for terrorism. But we must also cast our eyes further afield and be prepared for even the most seemingly unfathomable,” said Nick Pope, who has worked with the Ministry of Defense for more than two decades.

“It has been a widely held belief in Ministry of Defense circles that "aliens" have been able to detect us for decades via TV and radio broadcasts,” he said.

Pope said aliens would come in a spirit of warmth, friendship and shared learning, but the government was also prepared for the worst scenarios such as alien attack and invasion.

“If UFOs came into our atmosphere, RAF jets such as the Eurofighter Typhoons, and missiles such as the Rapiers guarding the Olympic Games would be well equipped to enter the fray,” he said.

Hmmm. Maybe someone should open a vendor stand at the Olympics selling aluminum foil hats.

Those aliens living 350,000 light years away from earth must be really smart to have planned and started a trip to the London Olympics at a time when neanderthals were roaming on earth.

I hope this guy isn’t too high up in the Government there.

If Aliens can fly 350,000 miles or however far they will have to come it is doubtful a Raptor,or Eurofighter Typhoon can even catch them no matter harm them.

This guy woke up one morning from a dream and thought it was real.

They have appeared a major sporting events for decades, we call them blimps. They could be Dirigibles, Zeppelins, or Blimps I Guess. Those English folks say and spell their words kinda funny sometimes.

Do you know why (weird) and supposed UFO activity is always connected to big events for humanity these days..?

Afterall why should little green (or grey) men be concerned about the London Olympics??

It’s because humans bring these things with them, believe it or not the UFO phenomonon (when not the immagination of crazy people) is actually tied to the occult.

It’s easy to laugh at UFOs. Go to Disclosure Project and UFO Casebook...there’s something here...and it’s likely been here since at least 1947...

...more and more I’m thinking it’s Biblical.

Go ahead and laugh...around 5% of these sightings cannot be explained...and some have excellent witnesses.

Among the believers: Edgar Mitchell, American who walked on the Moon the longest; Gordon Cooper, last American to orbit the Earth alone...in 1953 he was in a chase jet over West Germany set aloft to chase down a fleet of something. Couldn’t catchup. Cooper was also present at Edwards AFB testsite when a saucer landed (apparently it was in some trouble) put down landing gear and took off.

All of this landing was, according to Cooper captured on film.

First of all, if a “UFO” showed up and we know it’s alien it’s no longer a “UFO”. Second, I doubt anything we’ve got could do much damage.

I'm sorry but I can't believe the aliens give a crap about the Olympics — unless they are looking for the most gullible TV viewers on the planet.

You'd have to be particularly stupid to sit and watch the Olympics.

I was a bit surprised and taken aback to see Nick Pope put such a thing out.

However, he certainly has high level connections.

Perhaps they’ve told him something.

Or, perhaps given the looming WW3 talk vis a vis Israel, Iran etc. . . . the fallen angels may be upping their presence incrementally toward such festivities.

Then, there’s a certainty—their boss and the boss of the globalists is noted in Scripture as being the author of confusion.

In terms of weaponry . . . wouldn’t seem like we’d stand a chance. Though we evidently have taken some out—some inadvertantly until they adjusted some things. And some deliberately. But little is known about those events. And, more than 100 of our planes—including airliners as well as military were evidently taken out by them in a short time until we quit firing at them.

Most of the time, our fighters and their weapons systems just experienced failure—electrical failures whenever we got too close or locked onto them with our weapons systems.

In terms of where they come from, Dr Jacques Vallee, the French scientist depicted in Close Encounters studied them for 10 years and determined that they are evil spiritual critters coming from a spiritual dimension.

If UFOs come during the Olympics, who would get credit, Obama or Romney? One is a space cadet and one is heading to space.

Maybe they could teach us about the intergalactic mathematical principles that say that $15,000,000,000,000 in debt is a balanced budget.

Anyone who believes in these alien UFOs simply does not understand anything about the immensity of space, and the virtual impossibility of travel between star-systems.

But how can we test this idea? Here’s how, fellow earthlings! Consider that organic beings would find (just as we are learning) that it is much more feasible to send out robot devices (or drones) than to try to move organisms over vast distances. So, in all likelihood, if there were space aliens, they would send out exploratory probes, unstaffed by any actual individuals of their “people.”

Now, we have fossils from hundreds of millions of years of Earth history, and so far we have found absolutely no mechanical devices predating humans. Nothing.

It is really simple. If there are other intelligent beings somewhere else in the Universe, they are impossibly far away. They can’t get here from there.

Go read some of the forbidden archeology genre. There has been stuff found hat appears to me mechanical or electrical embedded on rock strata where it shouldn’t be. And because they were found where they weren’t expected...they were dismissed as unexplained.

I agree that the vast distances make space travel improbable. I think a vast majority of UFO activity is earth based military stuff. But I would not dismiss something dimensional or something along those lines.

I agree that the vast distances make space travel improbable.

But not impossible. Especially for "ark" ships. We are on the threshold of being able to identify, not just "goldilocks zone" planets, but within the next ten years, Earth-like ones. If civilization survives obama/agenda 21, there's a strong likelihood that artificial intelligence and robotics will have advanced enough that they will be able to replicate themselves and, if interested, take DNA samples with them in order to spread out into the universe seeding all the nearby habitable or terraformable planets within two hundred light years within the timespan of a few thousand years - which is nothing to self replicating AI, and watching and learning from evolution as it unfolds, both carbon and silicon based.

It could have already been taking place these past billion + years.
