Subject: When Aliens Attack

The National Geographic Channel is currently advertising a video
that speculates on an alien attack on earth.


See the trailer at


The overview reads "What if an extra-terrestrial force attacked
Earth? What might that look like and how will the people of
Earth respond? Consulting a cast of world-renowned scientists,
survival experts and defense experts, this two-hour special,
Alien Invasion explores this frightening scenario. Experts
reveal what could motivate alien invaders to attack Earth, and
speculate on how the attack might play out - the strategy alien
invaders might use and the most effective ways for humans to
respond. We'll turn to science and history to figure out what
works. We'll show how humanity can survive this ultimate test."

It's very curious that National Geographic would enter into that
kind of speculation in such a big way. My perception is that
they do fact-based documentaries dealing with the world as it is
or was. A special on an alien invasion is hardly consistent with
that. Are they telling us between the lines that they know
something factual the rest of us don't?

The site also presents a list of "Alien Facts", with UFO-related
items merged with other data, astronomical and otherwise. For
example, the list starts out by mentioning the release of UFO
information by the British MoD, and says next that the best way
to defend against ET invaders is to use nuclear missiles.


On the overview page, there is a link to a discussion of the 1942
Battle of Los Angeles, which took place near the start of a war
involving the US. Also on the same page is a link to an article
on "Aliens over DC?", the story of UFOs passing over the White
House and the US capital in 1952. An accompanying picture shows
multiple objects passing behind the iconic Capital Building.
Clearly, National Geographic wants to communicate that the earth
is/was  threatened by hostile aliens, and we need our experts to
tell us how best to defend the earth.

Is National Geographic now producing a science fiction movie
along the lines of Independence Day or War of the Worlds? I
think not. It sounds more like they are dead serious. This
production is either a propaganda piece or an effort to let us
in on a big secret. Either way, there is a hidden agenda.

If there were a real threat, it would be rational first to tell
the world the nature of the threat rather than what our response
should be. That is why the video is more likely intended as
propaganda to manipulate us to respond in a particular way to an
expected event. That event might be as benign as the ever-
expected disclosure, or as momentous as the appearance of actual
