Russia Says Its Space Troops Are “Not Ready To Fight Extraterrestrials”

outerspaceI’m glad that at least some governments are thinking about this. Russia Today reports:

Despite being called Russia’s space troops, they are not ready to deal with invasions by aliens from outer space, according to a statement by a Russian defense official.

In a surprising move, an apparently serious journalist raised this question of extraterrestrial security during a media conference at the Titov Main Test and Space Systems Control Center near Moscow, Russia’s main satellite control center.

“So far we are not capable of that. We are unfortunately not ready to fight extraterrestrial civilizations,” the center’s deputy chief Sergey Berezhnoy explained.

Titov space center, which is run by Russia’s Aerospace Defense Troops, controls around 80 percent of the country’s satellite fleet, both military and civilian. Russia’s space troops, in their current form, were created in 2011 through the integration of several military branches responsible for…control of outer space.

    Well, that’s interesting. I’ve just read Covert Wars and Clash of Civilizations: UFOs, Oligarchs and Spcae Secrets by Joseph P. Farrell. His main thesis is that there is, what he has termed, a “breakaway civilization,” that has been around since at least the 19th century. But that really got kicked into uber drive after WWII and the Cold War. He suggests that they are an affiliation of Paper Clip Nazis, CIA, Wall Street banksters and other assorted elite players from the upper echelons of academia, etc. Farrell claims that they have been running two space programs, the familiar one we all know about and another one, based on zero point energy and the manipulation of gravity and time itself. He suggests that this group has decided, based on the observations of UFOs, that they may indeed be hostile. They also have been covertly trying to gain parity with ET and have been largely successful.
    Seems a bit of a stretch to me, but it’s certainly an intersting read, if you feel like diving down the UFO, alien, CIA, secret society rabbit hole for a while. Fun read if you’re into that sort of thing.

      Yes there has got to be something like that going on. Gary McKinnon apparently found a list of UFO pilots. I would believe that humans with reverse-engineered technology could begin to develop parity, though I am surprised at the lack of diplomacy implied by your statement. It is VERY hard to know what is factual though because it gets fantastic and unaccountable very quickly, why I stopped reading bibliotecapleyedes for example.

        I find this subject to be very interesting, but frustrating as well. There is credible evidence and there are excellent witnesses to attest to some very strange occurrences, amongst a sea of disinformation and idiocy such as “Ancient Aliens.” The very nature of the subject is fantastic and it rapidly becomes impossible to intelligently speculate upon it with such limited info.

        • kowalityjesus

          I am sure there are a number of parties who have devoted copious, copious resources to our state of confusion. They are certainly patting themselves on the back having instilled misgivings into a couple of intelligent chaps like us. Think of the vast resources, the widespread media compliance, and the superb fabricators that needed to be employed for this to be accomplished. Holy shit on a stick! This must be important!

          • gustave courbet

            The Weekly World News, expositor of all things sensational, made aliens and UFOs a subject of derision amongst ‘serious’ thinkers. It was also owned by Generoso Paul “Gene” Pope Jr who happened to be a part of the CIA’s psychological warfare unit. Just sayin’

          • kowalityjesus

            Those magazines did do a lot to secure the unaccountability of paranormal subjects. Good factoid. I would like to see a documentary of a disinfo agent once. It’s funny I no longer see Weekly World News at the grocery checkout, just vapid celebrity news. I think the program is no longer disinfo, its now misinfo.

    LOL. Do ants even need to announce that they are not ready to fight the worlds armies?

    • Calypso_1

      If the collective population of ants decided the human race was no longer to be tolerated the ~ 7,000,000:1 ant: human ratio would leave us little hope.

      • Trevor Smith

        Heheh, good point. But I think you know what I mean

      • Cortacespedes

        So, if one could control the ant population via, I dunno, something like the way Dicrocoelium dendriticum does by manipulating the sub-esophageal ganglion, you could, in theory, take over the world?

        Provided, of course, that you could procure enough “snail snot”, and that you could “program” them not to just climb to the top of a blade of grass, but to behave in a suitably aggressive manner.

        All of them. At once.

        Hmmmmm.

    humans and their silly ideas of energy and inferior computation capabilities. shame shame. it is indeed “well at least they mentioned it”.

    • Calypso_1

    Good on them for being honest.

    It’s nice to know that some governments publicly assess existential risks like ET invasions. I wonder why this doesn’t happen in the states… anyone?
