It actually makes good sense in my ears. I'm just wondering why responses to sightings have been so different over time.
Some times they'll come forward and say, "yes, we did pick up something but can't account for it" and other times they'll just be denying it.
But yeah, the MoD might have been fairly honest when stating that they didn't care about these things when not posing a threat to national security.
Nevertheless they did have all those files in their posession so they must have had a moderate interest in the subject, I mean who wouldn't.
Also, if we assume that aliens are friendly and benign atleast then we can also assume a fair amount of intellingence or empathy right? Just the fact
that they are able to jump dimensional planes or travel near speed of light or create wormholes, denotes a significant amount of intelligence.
Therefore why would a race like that only offer their presence to a single country, or a few single countries? Especially if they have been around
since the Mayans or even just the 1900s. They would by now have seen through the masks of various leaders and bad groups of greedy people AND acted
accordingly. I really really doubt that a race superior to us would be swayed by kind words and smiles, or even be brainwashed. If anything they'd be
the ones to brainwash us. And we just decided they were friendly so...
So I more or less follow your point of view. Hehe, lately our primeminister in Denmark has been making some pretty outright stupid explanations and
comments that even a six-year-old would go "huh?" to.
However, this does not change the fact that we should keep the knowledge obtained and sightings reported on a public level.
What about the scenario that something did crash at some point, or was discovered in a digsite. Not necesarily Roswell... the thing was beyond repair
but independed parts of it worked and could be back engineered.
The Roswell crash could have been a prototype of one of the parts from this discovery. But since noone really knew what they were dealing with at that
time they failed.
Ofcourse they'd be more vigilant after that and tighten security. The mentality if that time must have been a state of perpetual fear and a wish not
to suffer another Pearl Habour. Therefore the efforts into back engineering was minded at, not meeting with greys / greens, but maintaining an edge in
primitive human warfare in order to respond with deadly effiency to any threats.
They simply couldn't get in touch with aliens... because the aliens didn't want to.
Aliens are aware though the problem created by our accidental discovery of their technology, and the reason for visits is to maintain a watchful eye
on us so we don't lose ourselves in the quest for so-called peace, or "one mankind".
I'm just rambling now... but I enjoy letting go sometimes.
Interesting theory OP.
