You couldn't just bump the other threads like this one? Cool story
And as far as proof, I could post the videos with retired military officers talking about UFOs shutting down nuclear missiles. But you got it all figured out don't ya?edit on 18-8-2011 by Swills because: (no reason given)
As you said, videos of them TALKING about shooting down nuclear missiles..... but they claimed the footage was confiscated.... so the OP is correct, it's all heresay. An interview of someone claiming something isn't proof.... it's not evidence. I hate to break it to you but tons of people in the military are, in fact, nuts... just like the people in the white house.... nuts.
So let me get this straight.....if you choose to serve your country in the military....the majority are nutz....thus a high probability that you are nutz? The Military is like any dept., branch, company, school or orginization that is home to a wide cross section of people....some good....some bad....some smart...some dumb....etc.
As far as serving in a branch of the military...while certain branches tend to be compromised of specific minded people....such as described by the toughness of a Marine....or contenance and skill of a submariner....I would not be quick to label the majority as nutz.
Unless you have served....I would think that these types of statements should be reserved to your thoughts.

If ET's exist, then someday it may be proven that they do. If they do not, then there is no possible way to prove that they do not exist. The only remotely possible way their existence can be disproven is if we invented warp drive, and then explored every single planet within a 1000 light year diameter. Even then, it would just prove that there is no life within a 1000 light years. Even here on Earth we are still finding new lifeforms that we never before knew existed. To just assume that new lifeforms don't exist here on Earth, or even beyond for that matter is pure ignorance or refusal to keep an open mind. We are one world, and on this one world life and repeated itself thousands of times over. Outside of this world, are literally millions of other worlds. So the odds that not even a single life form has not evolved anywhere else, and that we are the only world within these millions of worlds (Most we cannot see) that contains life, to me, is highly improbable. Just because we cannot see it, does not mean that it is not there. So it will be far easier to prove alien life does exist, then it would to prove that it does not exist. So far, the evidence seem to point in the direction that there is in fact, or at least a high probability, something else out there, even our top scientists will admit at least that much. Now whether or not we are being visited by such lifeforms is another story, but again, there is for more evidence (Witness testimony, ancient art, etc) stating that we are being visited, as opposed to evidence stating that we are not being visited. Seems to me that somebody or some organization that simply claims no such life exists anywhere else, period...are more likely to just not wanting anybody to believe that no such life exists. For this reason, its possible, such a person attempting to convince others of a disbelief, could very well believe but not want to share.edit on 20-8-2011 by JonStone because: (no reason given)
