it... They even showed an overlay on some Discovery show with the daytime photos of the mountain range from the same location where they filmed the
"UFOs", which shows that they dissapear *exactly* when they should, ie when they dissapear behind the mountain in the vicinity of the military
The other sightings is however another matter... As is the matter with the military not coming out with it quickly. The REASON for dropping them might
be something very interesting.
I see no one has taken a stab at refuting your logic so allow me to try this from a different angle..ok?
i was in the military..in fact two different military's... and held top-secret clearance [in both.] That's not as high as it sounds but it is high
enough to know I am on solid ground when I give you the inside scoop on military thinking and on why you should most definitely DISbelieve the
official story you are getting from the air force.
What's the difference between a cover story and a cover your a** story?
A cover story is one invented to hide the true nature or purpose of a Planned operation, exercise or event...and one to allay fears or suspicions
among possible [pain in the A**] bystanders/witnesses without security clearance or a need to know.
A CYA story is one invented to hide the true nature of an UNplanned event.
Now if the military was a going to carry out exercises of a secret nature or extraordinary nature..one at night in which strange bright lights would
be visible to a civilian populace all they would have to do to nip excitement and wild assumptions in the bud would be to issue a cover story
saying"look folks, we're going to be trying out some new things, and we'll be using some bright lights, so nobody panic..ok?'
And all good American citizens would go to sleep safe knowing that even if they didn't know what the gov was testing or deploying, it was ll for our
own good..and for the good of National Security.
Instead what we get is a CYA story..one issued AFTER THE FACT, which attempts to put a damper on the issue.
Now let's suppose they WERE testing experimental craft or weapons as some have supposed..why do so in such close proximity to a civilian center.
If they were flares what were they lighting up over Phoenix?
Normally flares are used to illuminate ground forces or targets for our artillery or field weapons to shoot at..so where were the ground forces?
BTW, pilots in jet fighters don't use flares to target when they have infra-red-starlight scopes and GSM laser targeting based on satellite imagery
or ground-air uplink from forward observers....
And, if the flares cited were capable of doing what is depicted on the video, which is flashing out and flashing in again..and maintaining altitude
for such a long time, and without leaving trails..why weren't they used in Iraq?
remember shock and awe..did you see all the flares Did you see all the smoke?
Where were the Phoenix lights?
But finally..and I stress this because its imprtant IMO..why are these lights appearting over ciites in other parts of the world at greater heights
and behaving exactly the same way as the ones in Phoenix, causing just as much panic and controversy?
Are the Canadiaans testing particle weapons do you think? Or planning desert warfare?
I mention becuase this notion of secret weapons testing doesn't ring true in most cases..I know a little about secret trstings and they were carried
out as far away from prying eyes as humanly possible..mostly underfround or in borrowed space from informed allies..like South Africa.
And whatever would we use these weapons against, anyway? Who on this planet has the technology to compete militarily with our standard issue Stealth
fighters/ The closest rival is the European fighter and that is not as advanced as anything being described in some of these blogs by the supposedly
in the know about black projects.
if they are indeed black project weapons systems they are being designed to fight off-planet foes..that's my view, becuase no one poses anything like
the threat these vehicles seem designed to meet.
In closing i ask you agin to considert the difference between a cover story and CYA..which one does the Phoenix lights fall into?
My hope is that you'll remeber CYA is invented to explain things unplanned after the fact.
