|On October 9, 1955, the Untied States indomitable "old solider" General Douglas MacArthur issued a warning to the nations of the world that they had no choice other than to unite. As quoted in the New York Times, MacArthur expressed his sincere opinion that the nations of Earth must soon "make a common front against attack by people from other planets". The next war, he warned, would be an interplanetary one.
MacArthur returned to the theme of an invasion from outer space again and again. In 1962 while addressing the graduating class at West Point, he stated: "We deal now not with things of this world alone. We deal now with the ultimate conflict between a united human race and the sinister forces of some other planetary galaxy".
Did General MacArthur really know something about the truth behind the flying saucer controversy that the public did not? In his speeches of 1955 and 1962, was he attempting to alert the citizenry of the United States to the threat of an invasion from outer space.
Unfortunately for the denizens of Earth, it would seem that by the time General MacArthur issued his warnings to beware of "sinister forces" from some other galaxy, it was already too late to halt an alien invasion of our planet.
