No Rex that is purely your opinion based on your particulate bias. a bias you constantly try to tar anyone who doesn't agreer with your way of seeing
things.In my time, i have cleared up 40-50 sightings that never were reported because, when the witnesses gave me their statement there was a prosaic
explanation for it and the people were happy with that explanation. Part of the reason they were willing to accept the explanation was because they
trusted me to be open minded and i didn't act like a condescending know it all.
My agenda is purely to try and fathom out what we are dealing with there are a hundred other agendas in the field. I've been playing this game, as
have others on here, with the likes of Jim for decades now. Gradually over the years the pendulum has swung back and forth, right now it is swinging
towards people finding it harder and harder to keep stuff from the media due to the effect of the web. OK, so the down side of that is the world is
full of Lanterns and other detritus I'm not complaining, as the saying goes, be careful what you wish for, you might just get it...
If you'd read the thread rather than just jumped in, you'd have seen where i mad it plain i fully understand Jim's position. Basically, hung out here
like a kipper whilst NASA tried to work out its' collective cognitive dissonance over the the whole UFO question.
NASA have been offered the chance to present their case, uninterrupted , but they won't take it because saying nothing is more honourable than lying .
I know that and so does anyone who has spent any length of time in this field. Behind closed doors NASA are spitting feathers over the Russians
willingness to talk, a fact a Russian ex cosmonaut told me. OK, so maybe he has some agenda, but that is what i was told. What Jim totally omits in
his blindsiding and sidetracking over the difference between NASA and the Russians is this. Russians have a far more open mind towards the whole
paranormal field because of their cultural background. In effect, Russia never totally bought into the whole clockwork universe idea that has reigned
over science since Newton. So they are far more predisposed to talk in front of camera about things the Americans have kittens about because it might
make them look cranky. The collapse of the wall in 1990 has simply exacerbated NASA's problem and they have gone the, total button down, route.
It's not my problem that people on here are often so naive about politics they don't see why the Americas are like they are. They are currently top
dogs as such , Now i suspect NASA has seen these objects, filmed them and the military have just shrugged and said. "Don't ask us we can't catch 'em
either. By and large whatever intelligence is behind these objects has not interfered. The odd show of strength but mainly aimed at objects not
personnel. So, over time the military has just let them get on with it. However there isn't a cat in hell[s chance they are going to tell the world
they are impotent in the face of these objects as that would, in their minds, give license to a whole rake of human groups to start cutting up rough
with them as well. The Russians, freed of their empire and the duties that went with it no longer feel the need to sit on it and are, little by little
easing people into the idea we might not be alone, but hey don't panic. Of course they are loving watching the Americans jumping through hoops and
coming up with ever increasingly out there ideas to keep a lid on it and you can't blame them for not having at least a giggle.
We hear so much cant about how sophisticated the Americans are militarily and it happens to be a load of old cobblers. They love you to think that,
but like the ex GI says in that documentary.
"The adverts tell you they have all the latest equipment, the truth is i was stuck in Iraq in a Vietnam era flak vest and a rifle, that was it".
So the UFO field allows the Americans to keep up that front. "Hey guys we lie, we cheat, we might have this, we might have that, nod wink." I
strongly suspect they have nowt and if they did pick something up at Roswell they broke it and haven't the first clue how to put it back together
In short TPB, are doing exactly what parents do to kids when they ask difficult questions. Tell them not worry it won't happen. Jim will score
points when, what looks like a promising case, turns out to be Mrs Studerbaker's car headlight reflecting off the fog down into the valley. We score
points when the Russians debag the Yanks publically by saying. "Actually, there is some weird stuff out there".. The difference is, Jim's side can't
concede in public we can.
