While I don’t need any official declaration, it would be nice to hear the U.S. government declare that U.F.O.’s are very real & are visiting our planet regularly. My primary fear is that people, when faced with the uncertainty about whether E.T.’s are “friend or foe” will act in the usual manner (we don’t know what it is, so let’s kill it!) and pelt E.T./U.F.O. with automatic weapons fire, possibly pissing off these beings who could retailiate in a manner that may spell doom for the human race! These beings are so much more advanced than ourselves, it isn’t a stretch to imagine them zapping us like bugs, thus wiping humanity out!
