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. http://tinyurl.com/3kvlad4 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 ETs. William Listen to 'Strange Days...
