Strange Days or Planned Government Traps: We are in some strange days. Let's get to the bottom of it.

The North America Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) claims to have shot down at least three “objects” over North America this last weekend. It has caused quite a stir in the UFO community. This isn’t the first time they’ve gotten excited by government reports of unidentified flying objects.
In June 2021, the government was scheduled to release a report on Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena, the government’s new name for UFOs. Some people expected the government to spill the beans on the “Grey’s” from Zeta Reticuli who crashed in Roswell in 1947 and have been running around making crop circles, mutilating cattle, and probing anuses ever since.
Of course, nothing like that occurred. The government released a rather bland report along with a few grainy radar videos of what looked like a big Tic Tac skimming over the ocean.
One thing that I’ve learned over the years is that we should never expect the government to release any earth-shattering news about UFOs. Because even if they had such information, they wouldn’t release it. Let’s not forget that the CIA used UFO sightings to cover up research and development of advanced military aircraft like the U2 and SR71. It’s to the government’s advantage to keep UFOs a mystery.
So, what are people seeing and what is the government claiming that they shot down over the weekend? There are four probable explanations:
First, UFOs could be a combination of different types of U.S. military aircraft. Some might be drones, which can hover over an area like the “objects” that the military claims to have shot down. Others could be secret hypersonic missiles, that can fly very fast, like the radar images that were released a couple of years ago. The U.S. military denies this, but denying things is what they do.
Second, they could be drones and hypersonic missiles from a hostile country, like China. This would be problematic for our national security since they have penetrated North American defenses without being detected until they are deep within our airspace. Some of these things could carry electromagnetic pulse weapons that could cripple our electrical grid and more.
Third, the radar images of the fast-moving Tic Tac UFOs could be due to bugs in the military’s equipment. Some of these radar images happened right after major equipment upgrades.
Fourth, they could be a combination of all or some of the above. We should also consider a political motivation for some of this. The Biden administration was widely criticized for allowing a Chinese surveillance balloon to complete its mission before shooting it down. Suddenly, three additional objects appeared, and he immediately took decisive action. It doesn’t pass the smell test.
But why couldn’t they be aliens? My argument against this is simple -- no one knows that we are here. The earth is situated in a tiny, sparsely populated spur off one of the main spiral arms of our galaxy. In other words, we are located in the middle of nowhere. And we've only been communicating in the electromagnetic spectrum for about 100 years. Our galaxy has upwards of 400 billion stars. But our radio and television signals have only reached a few thousand of them. Why would anyone try to visit us if they don't know we exist?
Even if a nearby alien civilization knew about us, there isn’t any evidence that they could break the laws of physics and travel many times faster than the speed of light to get here.
Sure, I’ll concede that anything is possible. So, the UFOs could be alien artificial intelligence, actual aliens, humans from the future, or Satan’s legions from another dimension. But these aren’t the most probable explanations.
Whatever they are, expect the media to keep the hype cycle going until something new comes along that can distract us from inflation, failing schools, outsourcing jobs overseas, the weaponization of government agencies against conservatives, and more.
