Well if aliens have been visiting earth and they have had encounters with our military I'm sure we would have figured out some way of damaging their ships.

Though...It's kind of hard imaging what weapon they would have made considering how advance their technology must be,like you pointed out.

why shoot something down that isn't shooting?

There is a reason why war of the worlds was written,
it's not the big things that can take down Goliath.
Rather the small things, and we have some very small things that can take down anything biological.
so wait until they land and then let them have it.

oh if we have it then I'm sure a high advanced Alien race has it too?

I haven't read through the entire thread, so I'm not sure if anyone else pointed this out, but at least one UFO has been fired upon by an Air Force pilot, either Chilean or Peruvian, can't recall which. It's in Leslie Kean's book. The rounds had no effect, and thereafter the object repeatedly evaded the fighter jet when the pilot attempted to fire on it again, ascending vertically from a stationary position at a high rate of speed, apparently to avoid the attack.

The amount of energy required to allow interstellar travel could destroy our planet entirely, if not the solar system itself. If they launched a counter attack, there is no way we would survive.

Of course, they might not see us as intelligent beings. They might see us as a lower life form, to be preserved and studied... kind of like we do with animals on our own planet. If a group of marine biologists is down in the ocean scuba diving and studying sharks and one of them gets bit, the marine biologists certainly don't wipe out all the sharks.

Best plan of action: Don't shoot the aliens.

But if they attacked, and you HAD to shoot the aliens just because you didn't want to go down without putting up a fight, then I think your best bet would be to use the most powerful weapon you could get that doesn't use any electronics. They can't shut down the electronics of a weapon that doesn't have any...

i'd run off, catch the flu from a sick person.....wait a tick!!! i've got one better!!!!
i'd go to CVS or whatever pharmacy is handing out the flu shot(h1n1) make a Co2 powered Gatling gun and simply disease them into submission.......hope that'll deter them.

Hello everyone on ATS. I have been looking at this website for a couple years now and this my first post.
Could not help myself to reply to this.
First off, clearly this person has not done alot of research into the subject as there has clearly (in my opinion) been footage shown of attempts to shoot down UFO's
The first time I ever saw footage like this was on CNN, I think in early 2000. The original claim was that they had possibly filmed a UFO, then the next day it was "the old ice crystal story"
CNN recanted everything and said that what was filmed was nothing but ice.
David Sereda quickly shows us what a silly statement this is in the DVD "Evidence: The case for NASA UFO's"
Excellent DVD and I believe a must watch for everyone
David Sereda shows us with math/physic calculations that what we see is an object at quite some distance travelling at 90,000/hr change direction instantaniously and soot off at 90 degrees to the previously travelled course. The interesting part, just as it changes direction an object coming from earth just misses it.
I believe that this was a UFO trying to be shot down
No object or ice that I know off could survive a 90 degree course change at 90,000/hr

Secondly, not to pick on the good Oll USA but is there anything in history that they have not shot?
I mean.... for example the twin towers were taken down to start an illigal war. Surely a regime that would conduct itself like that would not bat an eye at shooting down a UFO

I was gonna say battle of los angeles but a dozen people beat me to it.

I think the 'aliens' have been here longer than we have.
I'm not convinced they are from another planet, they could just as easily be secret military craft or beings from another dimension or from inside the earth or inside the moon or they could be us from the future. who knows.

I think we have brought down one or two of them over the years. Roswell maybe, and one in Russia that there's some pictures of on the internets.

I guess If we were already at war, I would want to use the Navy's new Railgun. Thats the most badass gun on the planet right now.

Because it's like natives trying to take down a normal jet plane with bows and arrows.

Do some research mate, you will find this has happened many times, and it is not a good thing. I find your attitude offensive to be honest, you think the best way to greet advanced interplanetary beings is with your M4? Get real buddy.

In this Youtuve video, we can listening to an Pilot Officer of the Peruvian Air Force, telling about his experience with an UFO. His mission was to shoot down the object. Incredibly the shoots didn't do anything. At the video time 04min 50sec he tells about that incident. The conference was in "The national Pres Club, UFO Disclosure", November 12th 2007. The incident related was April 11th 1980 in Arequipa, Peru.

What weapon would you use?
Greetings Slov,
Hats off to you for raising the question.

Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) procedures apply or should apply.
Probably National Command Authority, in the US, it's the President, renders decision as to whether or not to splash a UFO, unless such authority has already been delegated.

Answer #1. barry hussein mohammed soetoro (alias, obama) will not order the splashing of a UFO unless the UFO interferes with his radical socialist aganda (obama's plan for us).

Answer #2. Anti-Aircraft munitions selection is done by the military. The answer is air to air missile, or, ground to air missile. There are lots of cool munitions that can deal with a UFO, but that [specific] decision is best left to the air defenders (Air Force, Navy, or Air Defense Artillery).

Hope this suffices.

Use a 50cal rifle that might to the trick but the best weapon you could use would be a high powered laser but if you miss they might shoot back so run after you've shot aspechialy if it was an experimental aircraft coz then your......

One of the biggest mysteries to me is that with all the interest and discussion about UFO's, nobody seems to ever mention what is arguably one of the most famous close encounters.

Not only is there a case on record of someone shooting at a UFO, the claim is that they actually succeeded in disabling it. The case went all the way to the Supreme Court because there was no legal precedent for such an issue. This is from the official Supreme Court Records of the case -

Statutes Involved -

1)Factually - Discovery of Cosmic Energy involves space problems without precedent: Practitioner
succeeded in disabling space craft.

2)Judicially - There are no applicable congressional statutes as discovery of new energy is without
precedent: Spaceships are causing planetary (D.O.R) emergency by draining life energy from
the planet causing drought and desert development.

Another cracking statement in the documents states - "The reason for the hesitation was obviously the risk of precipitating interplanetary war"

So be warned all gun toting UFO hunters, the US Supreme Court decided long ago that in the interest of the neigbourhood, we can't have people running around shooting at UFO's willie nillie..

That is just fascinating! They are often spotted around electrical storms and lightning and the such, possibly related?
Nice one!

It is a truly extraordinary story and not just because of the UFO incident. This guy was way ahead of his time and his work was being closely monitored by the most senior Government officials for a long time before they brought him down.

I will post all the details I have as soon as I get some spare time to put it together.

Righto.Ive never heard about this.Would u post a link of this...some news source?

I wish I could find it. This was like two or three months ago. I recall it was from a vid, where the pilot being interviewed said he had no idea what the weapon was just that when fired it somehow interfered with the anitgravity of the craft... basically causing it to lose flight and crash. The manner he spoke was almost like remorse, since he said the beings were actually peaceful and we were basically shooting them out of the skies.

EDIT: Maybe someone else remembers this vid, as I believe it was post at some point here. I read so many threads it gets hard to remember a specific one.

And what, pray tell, does that have to do with anything at all? Are you thrown off if a Being from another planet doesn't believe in your God? Would this upset you friend?
When I met my alien contact all those years ago, of course I asked that very question, only not in that context. Everyone knows down deep there is something bigger than we are, some just do not personalize or name them, and they do not make a dead guy into a God. Only human being do that. Everyone else knows better.

Turns out that a movie is coming out regarding The Battle of LA...
Looks good, check it out. It's based on the accounts from the book.

I hope the movie doesn't disappoint.
Books are always better!

I think the most important aspect of your question is why would you want to. Even if you wanted to there is nothing we have that would work.
