Good Lord... are you for real dude? Judging from your typos, I'd guess that (nevermind, removed this part )... Forgive me if I'm wrong about that. But honestly, no matter what "most people(s) mind(s)" may think, UFO quite definitively stands for Unidentified Flying Object. If you believe it means "aliens" it is your failing to deal with. Well said! I'll add my own idea on what you removed from the start. LOL

I'm with ohio state buckeyes here (about it being bizarre that anyone would shoot at a UFO, not about the world's interpretation of the acronym UFO, which I think he's wrong about)- It makes me so angry that UFO have been shot at... Why on Earth would you do that?! It seems to me to be the HEIGHT of stupidity. If the UFO were an ET craft, you're not only murdering the potential occupants but risking conflict with beings who are obviously more advanced than us! Why would you do something so stupid? Now, to this particular case; it reeks of ineptitude when they can't even identify a balloon and ... [More]

I've seen a few similar comments on different forums, where someones saying "even if it was a UFO, as if our weapons would stand a chance against theres" .. thats true, but you can't expect every UFO to be equipped with advanced weaponry! its not like every plane is.. just pointing out.. & IF it was a UFO, why shoot it down at the risk of infuriating an advanced race!! (as Paxus points out) its pretty stupid, and even tho every stupid decision that humans make doesn't surprise me, I'm sure, its possible that these stupid decisions (shotting a UFO) that we ASSUME, are stupid decisions, aren...

If something is in your airspace without permission, it is intercepted, if it fails to acknowledge its intentions or reasons for being there, its considered hostile. Most countries will scramble their jets at least once a week because someone has (usually unintentionally) wandered into their airspace. Its not about murdering innocent pilots or aliens or starting an interstellar war, its about keeping your airspace secure. However, I share the idea that if it was actually an alien craft, we probably wouldn't be able to bring it down. 'They' could probably scramble our guidance systems and I thi... [More]

*LOL* I forgot all about this one - I'm guessing we still haven't been informed of any outcome...
