Sometimes the easiest way to cover something up is to pull the you did not see anything line, then let those who think they saw something speculate
about what they thought they saw.
I am today going to present a theory that would highlight this line of thought. I apologize in advance for breaking the hearts of everyone who wants
there to be Extra-Terrestrials, although I may make the Government conspiracy guys extremely happy.
America 1947 we just Came off the Japanese Surrender on 15 August 1945, Everyone in the USA was happy and life was starting to return to normal. The
war was over.
Then in 1947 a Crash happens in Roswell New Mexico, what came down Spooked the military enough for them to Box it up quick and pull the you saw
The basic gist of what was seen was a flexible metal craft with two beings in it.
The Descriptions of those beings was.
- oversize head
- almond eyes
- off color skin
When looking at that list it is easy to see how the current imagination of "Grey" aliens would come from it.
But what if those beings were Human, is there a ahem template for humans who are short, off color skin, and almond shaped eyes. Yes and that
description with out the over sized head would have triggered a major situation in the just established peace... the panic the Government could not
afford at that moment. "Japs have landed in New Mexico" That headline would have re-sparked the Pacific Conflict. Hence the Military rushing to
hide the whole thing.
War makes for strange innovation on both sides, The Japanese learned high altitude balloons could for the most part avoid radar and were using them
to deliver bombs. It is not a stretch of Imagination for them to try and put a couple light weight guys with rations and breathing helmets and oxygen
tanks in balloons along with cameras to suss out enemy targets.
It is real easy to believe that the balloonist ran out of rations and starved to death at high altitude or ran out of air. This high altitude balloon
then drifts until it is over New Mexico where the balloon pops dropping itself the bucket and the poor dead spies to the ground.
So it is really easy to see why the cover story was it was a weather balloon, after all that was most of what the craft was, it just was not ours and
had two dead Japs in it.
As for the Big Head thing, ever seen what the "Japs" use for their entertainment aka Power Rangers, that design may have been first used as a high
altitude tank and helmet combo.
So then you have the Military referring to the bodies as Aliens which is the term for not from this country is or was before Sci-Fi writers co-oped
Thus the Idea of Aliens landing at Roswell in a crashed weather Balloon is born... The perfect cover to keep the trigger happy public from demanding
to go back to Japan and finishing the job. It was in Government's interest to not stop the rumors after all it was easier to tell the truth that
"it was not Extra-Terrestrials" then it would have been to Fight WWII part 3 return to the Pacific Theater.
Mind this is of course all speculation and Theory, the type perfect to Stink up Skunk works with.
