This is interesting, fun, and a little bit suspicious.
The man questioned, mentioned, to some extent, this program of preparation is more of a PC way to put a label on a program without upsetting any
In other words, as opposed to saying war games vs. China, or war games vs Russia, or war games vs. a friendly ally nation, they've labelled it war
games vs. aliens.
If anything, this tells me that there's some concern regarding one or several of the other leading world powers, and/or even friends of the US and
setting up a program to fight 'aliens' is tongue in cheek way of preparing to retaliate against insert nation name here without getting insert
nation's name here's panties in a bind.
Aside from the more probable scenario of going to war against a friend/ally, it also does indeed prepare for anything else, like alien invasion.
It's a thinking outside the box game in light of all the failures and difficulties run into with asymmetric warfare tactics in Afghanistan, and Iraq.
