I mentioned in the OP that I understand that Examiner is not a prime source of news, but when secondary/tertiary external sources are offered we can
be a bit more accepting. If it were just an article, with no sources provided, I wouldn't bother linking it. I wouldn't like to take anything the
Examiner posts as a primary source.
As far as antar's thread, I don't want this thread to end up like that one did. We will get nowhere continuing that specific thread of discussion. I
linked it only to offer an additional vein of info, as the events are unquestionably similar in content. At the time of antar's thread there were very
few external sources to corroborate any claims, but these recent events are valuable if only because they stir the pot a little bit.
It never hurts to be thorough, and I like connecting loose threads when I find them. The first loose thread that came to my mind when I found this
article was antar's thread. But I want to stress that this thread is in no way an extension of antar's. I simply wanted to add a bit of backstory, if
only for the coincidence of it, to this recent article.
As far as "why helicopters". I have no idea. My first thought is that these are tests or training of some sort. Maybe the helicopters aren't actually
"pursuing" the objects, as much as monitoring them while under friendly control. As I understant it, Helicopters can be very capable in air-to-air
combat regardless. It isn't just the speed of the vehicle that matters, but the speed of the payload. If these UFOs are combative, the Helicopters
might simply be an early line of defense. They may not try to pursue the objects in any significant way, but rather deter it. I admit that I don't
know much at all about military tactics, so I might be terribly off point... but those are my thoughts.
