When I started looking into this I couldn't believe it, but imo, this deserves to be up there in terms of exposure with Reagan's "alien threat"
comments. In the 15 or so years leading up to his death, US General and war hero Douglas MacArthur warned several times publicly of his
interpretation of the UFO phenomenon.
His first speech in 1951 warned of a "sinister force" from "some other...galaxy": archive.org...
His more famous speech to cadets at West Point in 1962 echoed this, and added some more details; what's fascinating about this is he recited it from
memory and seemingly shoehorned the section on "sinister forces" in an area it didn't really belong:
After he died, John Keel wrote a great article on MacArthur, and said government sources told him MacArthur briefed some in 1958, warning he thought
UFOs were "scouting this planet to prepare for a massive invasion":
When MacArthur was still military governor of Japan in the late 1940s, he worked to gather UFO reports in the region and in other areas of the globe,
specifically military interactions. British intelligence officer RV Jones later disclosed MacArthur telegrammed RAF about an unidentified rocket crash
For what it's worth, I've never seen MacArthur's name on any of the disputed MJ12 documents. It's difficult to understand if this was a sort of
personal obsession, driven by years of exposure to "foo fighter" reports while he was an Army leader in the South Pacific, or if he really was in the
know about the true nature of the UFO phenomenon.
Either way it's an important chapter in UFO history that seems to be buried online (intentional or not).

because: fixed a couple misspellings
1) - Reagan was using that idea that , IF that happened , it would bring the world together .
2) - MacArthur's statement was in reference to the unknown of the future , not a confirmation .
3) - 3rd link is very much conjecture by the author.
When you’re dealing with the infinite vastness of our universe you absolutely would need to scout.
Our brains can’t even handle the scope of existence on this planet let alone the universe. My grandpa started a very well respected ufo community
back in 1969. He told me once, every question leads to 4 other questions. It’s a never ending spiral and you never really get an answer. He told me
long ago, stop asking questions.
He also told me if you took one tablespoon of water and made every H2O molecule a snowflake the earth would be 400ft deep in snow. I don’t know how
I would verify that but I do know the vastness of everything.
