USA military release UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena – alternative to sensationalist UFO) footage, declaring them real and the aircraft unidentified article on MSN.
My response, starting with a little (rude) X-Files wordplay joke:
Why did the Pentagon release them now?
For Fox Mulder’s Sake!
Chile released similar military footage of a tic-tac shaped UAP (UFO) from 2014 in 2017: available online.
Not far from the USA for us, and a short step for a bullet-speed aircraft.
Most countries in the world have many UFO cases, with some American documentary series collecting the most notable as those countries’ Roswell: Mexico, Brazil, Russia etc.
If they are alien, I don’t think they are more of a threat to us than we already face from fellow humans, directly and indirectly.

While I’ve been interested in UFOs since childhood I’d become sceptical in adulthood; putting it down to new military technology, such as stealth; and while writing XaW Files: Beyond Humanity (it includes a little X-Files reference, but not much UFO!.. but was investigating my own brain through the writing mind!!).
Ironically, the year after publishing that (X-Files returned during the writing!) I watched the UFOs: The Lost Evidence series on Quest, and its new cases added to old reinvigorated my interest. Ancient Aliens had a lot of good info too, but got a bit much with claiming everything within its theory. Then Blaze channel arrived, with lots more American series from the previous decade. Again, there’s a lot of good info, but a lot that seems sensational and unlikely.
My latest books, full of the mysteries of the mind, and my self-learning mostly through TV and online about science and space, turned into poetry and prose (but not much UFOs!):
