Japan's defence minister braces for aliens
Shigeru Ishiba became the second member of the cabinet to profess a belief in UFOs and said he was looking at how Japan's military could respond to aliens under the pacifist constitution.
"There are no grounds for us to deny that there are unidentified flying objects (UFOs) and some life-form that controls them," Ishiba told reporters, saying it was his personal view and not that of the defence ministry.
Ishiba said he was examining different scenarios for an alien invasion.
"If they descended, saying 'People of the Earth, let's make friends,' it would not be considered an urgent, unjust attack on our country," Ishiba said. "And there is another issue of how can we convey our intentions if we don't understand what they are saying," he said. "We should consider various possibilities," he said. "There is no need at all to do this as the defence ministry, but I want to consider what to do by myself."
UFOs have also made a surprise entry into the US presidential race, with liberal Representative Dennis Kucinich telling a televised debate with other Democratic candidates that he had witnessed one.
