During his lifetime, President Ronald Reagan was known to have a fascination for, among other things; i.e. astrology and religious prophecy. For the
most part, these interests were the topic of supermarket tabloids and the "ammo" of his political pundits. UFO's and, in particular, an "alien
invasion of Earth", however, was a interest of President Reagans' that actually became globally known through his speech to the General Assembly of
the United Nations;
"In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside,
universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an
alien threat from outside this world."
Speech to the United Nations General Assembly, Forty-second session, "Provisional Verbatim Record of the Fourth Meeting", September 21, 1987.)
President Reagan made many similar comments to various people from high school groups to Premier Gorbachev. It seems that he talked about UFO's to
anyone who'd listen. But when he spoke in front of the United Nations, he did raise an interesting issue. It was Reagan's contention that the
world, if invaded by aliens, would unite.

Ronald Reagan believed that if a threat from another world attacked Earth, the nations of the world would drop their national quarrels and differences
and band together, perhaps as a "United Earth"(?) to fight against the alien invaders. Do you think that this would be the case?
