If the governments of, say, the USA and/or the United Kingdom knew about Extraterrestrial visitors, could they really manage to that knowledge a secret?
This is a question that has provoked debate in UFO circles for many years.
Like many of us, I have pondered this question myself and feel somewhat as you do, governments do not necessarily do such a great job of keeping secrets, especially ones that would involve thousands of people. If you think about it, you've mentioned the USA and the UK, well there are another 190+ countries around the world and over 7 Billion of us living here.
Not to mention, why would only nations that COULD keep secrets chance to be in the know. Some countries would sell the story to the media just to clear their national debt. That is why this idea falls apart. It is egotistical to presume only big countries would be in the know. If UFOs were real and were really crashing then I assume they could crash anywhere - not just the USA or the UK.
I thought about that years ago..I'm sure many of us have. As a matter of fact, the usa would logically be the last country that any real ETs would contact due to hiroshima.
A large proportion of other countries are more ethical or as said. ..more hungry.
Could they really keep ETs secret?

What people call ETs aren't ETs anyway so the entire discussion about keeping secrets is pretty moot.

He's read the same books we have.
That said, im not saying that the lifeforms faking ufo evidence are not convincing; they are.
That humongous flying triangular wedge 'ufo' I saw a few weeks ago was very convincing on the surface. Looked like it was from star trek in fact.
