If our "black" government has all these secret projects and equipment like the conspiracies claim, why isnt our military just using them against the world?
For example... if you have a giant mother-ship triangle spacecraft.. .all you would have to do is fly over any country and say.. this is our tech what are you gonna do about it?
The fact we havent done that proves that our "black ops/government" isnt out to take over the world. If they where thats all they would have to do.
Or, this is all just conspiracy balony and none of its true(i dont buy into this, but its a possibility).
I do believe the government has some kind of secret technology, but what it is and what its used, and why we dont have it is boggling my mind.

By letting people think they have it, it makes it that bit easier to siphon off huge amounts of tax dollars into the real black projects.

Im with firemoon on this.
The US Navy is about to, or is, spending a fortune on buying new wings for its fleet of P3 maritime patrol aircraft (which are probably 30+ years old) because their replacements, commercial boeing jets up-spec'd to mil standard are running late. Doesnt sound like the military is that advanced here does it.
The some of the technology aboard the new P8 aircraft is lead by commercial teams, examples;
Video compression, local area networks and data storage are all waiting or waited for commercial such as freeware alograthyms (i can say or spell this word), Ethernet technology to be military hardened and solid state memory to be hardened. It doesnt sound like the military is advanced here either does it?
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, bit of a joke really just remote controlled aircraft with long ranges, you could practically make your own with a decent satellite mobile phone, the technology of automation is all software driven and I would imagine that if microsoft decided to write code for a UAV they would have it better than any defence company worldwide. (ok mayben not microsoft, google or linux?)
Space shuttle mentioned, russia still cant launch a satellite, japan cant orbit a planet.
F-35 JSF using jet propulsion to try (and they struggled) for VTOL.
No supersonic passenger flight (already mentioned) Hotol (British Aerospace answer to this was canned)
The drive for commercial companys to launch satellites because its too expensive for governments.
Lithium batteries are cutting edge developed by industry.
So what does this mean? Well, I dont think it means we dont have visitors from space or there wasnt a crash at roswell but there is no great technology hidden from us by 'black' projects, there is no anti gravity, no supercomputers, no zero point energy.
Thats just my opinion of course.
Take it easy.
