UK Has Extraterrestrial War Technology
And Is Prepared To Use It If Attacked By Aliens:
Says Former Government Advisor Nick Pope

Follow us: - Is United Kingdom preparing for an alien invasion? Is there really a reason to believe that the Earth is facing a serious threat from space, or do aliens find our planet to be a rather "boring" place, as Sir Patrick Moore suggested?

According to former government advisor, UK is in possession of extraterrestrial war technology that can be used whenever needed.

The nature of the technology is of course classified, but Pope revealed some interesting information in an interview with MSNBC.

Nick Pope worked for 21 years at the British Government's Ministry of Defence from 1985 to 2006.

During the time Pope worked for the Ministry of Defence his job was to advice on the threat posed by extraterrestrial life-forms. Pope makes it clear that although UK has currently no special organizations like Torchwood, the alien-hunting team from the BBC science fiction series of the same name, the country has highly advanced and sophisticated technology needed to fight an alien threat, if necessary.

"We do have several prototype aircraft and drones and other weapons you won't see on the news for another 10-15 years so if we did face a threat from the unknown then even if there is no Torchwood around now, there would be something like it by then and they certainly would have some great kit to help in the fight.

Look at the Taranis, which is a prototype made by BAE Systems. It looks for all the world like a spaceship in the hanger," Nick Pope says.

Pope points out that the official government position is that UFOs offer "no significant defence threat" and he has also recently said that some of the invading UFOs could be Russians and not Martians.

But of course, Pope adds, there are sighings we cannot dismiss so easily and we cannot be sure what we are dealing with.

"My colleagues and I said, whatever our official position - the one we gave to the public, media or parliament, - privately, where five per cent of UFO sightings remained unexplained, at the very least there has to be a potential threat," Pope says.

"One of the things that was interesting was that when people reported seeing UFOs these things were capable of extraordinary manoeuvres and speeds.

They were much faster than our military jets so we wanted to find out about the technology and if we could find it useful.

"Defence scientists were very interested in the fact they might have some kind of exotic propulsion system."

If our planet faced an alien threat, it would be essential to unite the people of Earth.

"One possibility would be trying to unite all the nations of the world. For those who think that far-fetched, Ronald Reagan once hinted at it in a speech to the UN. He said 'I occasionally think how quickly we would set aside our difference if we faced some alien threat from the other side, '" Pope says.

Skyline is a 2010 alien invasion science fiction film directed and produced by the Brothers Strause, directors of Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem.

When asked if he believes in extraterrestrial visitors, Pope says he tries to stay open-minded.

"I am absolutely convinced that elsewhere in the universe there must be other life and I am also convinced that some of that is going to be intelligent. I am open-minded about the possibility that some of that life is visiting us down here but just as our space programme is reaching out to find out what is out there, it seems other life forms could be motivated by the same thing.

They come in all shapes and sizes according to the people who have seen these things. There is a vast variety of life.

One of the things being discussed at the Royal Society is that we could be dealing with artificial life - a post-biological universe of cyborgs and robots.

"I suspect there are thousands and millions of civilisations out there.

"We all hope it's just going to be ET-style fluffy aliens as opposed to a terrifying alien invasion," Pope says.

Perhaps there is no real need for UK and the rest of the world to worry and estimate the dangers of a possible alien invasion. Renowned UK astronomer and author of The Cosmic Tourist, Sir Patrick Moore believes an alien invasion is unlikely because extraterrestrials will find Earth too "boring" to bother with.

I am sure there is life out there. We cannot be the only ones. I don't think we would be on any [aliens] tourist list. We are a pretty boring planet, orbiting a boring star, "Moore says.

Meanwhile, the quest for extraterrestrial life continues. "Within 10 or 20 years we will be able to image other planets like the earth, orbiting other stars. That will be a really exciting subject to see if there is evidence for [extra-terrestrial] life or not, " said the Queen's astronomer Lord Rees.
