United Mexican States
Mexico is well known as one of the world’s UFO hotspots. Not only does Mexico, like Canada, receive an overflow of Alien air traffic from neighbouring U.S states, it seems the aliens take a special interest in Mexico itself. Mexico city is said to be a particular favourite of extraterrestrial tourists. Why? Evidence suggests that aliens simply love ancient monuments and Mexico is littered with them. Like all tourists, visiting aliens simply can’t resist exploring Mexico’s pyramids and ruins.
The People’s Republic of China
China (and the autonomous region of Tibet) has a long history of peaceful coexistence with aliens, with some sightings dating back thousands of years. Ancient myths speak of flying machines (occasionally referred to as pearls of the sky), sometimes made by men but more often by the gods. Some UFOlogists, notably Hartwig Hausdorf, has speculated that many accounts of dragons in Chinese mythology may indeed refer to alien craft. Chinese emperors have occasionally been picked up and taken for a ride in flying chariots pulled by dragons, and the gods themselves are said to have descended from the heavens inside dragons. One emperor even achieved immortality by being taken inside a dragon and flown into the heavens. Hartwig Hausdorf has even gone so far as to suggest that the entire of Chinese civilization has been built around the influence of extra terrestrial culture bearers.
More recently, China’s skies would seem to have much quieter, although the silencing influence of China’s communist regime have made it hard to know for sure. The Cultural Revolution made the recording of UFO evidence impossible and silenced any and all claims of alien contact by Chinese citizens.
However, with the Cultural Revolution now over, China’s official stance on aliens and UFOs has changed. Many are now speaking openly about their close encounters and the truth is finally being revealed. Not only was China the UFO capital of the ancient world, it continues to be one of the most popular alien holiday destinations of all time.
The Russian military has been baffled and bemused by UFO sightings for as long as the U.S Air Force has. During the dark days of the cold war, while many in the U.S were accusing the Soviets of flying experimental craft based on Nazi ‘flying disk’ plans, the Soviets were making the same accusations right back at them. Later, the Soviets accused China of flying UFOs across their common border, and China made the same claims. The Russian/Chinese border (the Altai Mountains) is thought to be one of the most active areas of UFO activity in the world. The local population think nothing of seeing strange lights in the sky. Unfortunately, being such a remote wilderness location, most sightings go unreported and are almost impossible to verify.
Of course, the biggest problem facing Russian UFOlogists has been the tight control of information by both the government and military. Fortunately, however, this is now changing and Russia’s full UFO history is finally being revealed. In 2009 the Russian Navy declassified its UFO files, revealing a string of UFO encounters dating back to the Soviet period. The files tell of how UFOs have shadowed Russian submarines, surfacing when they do and then taking to the skies.
One of the most incredible stories revealed by the declassified Navy files tells of an extraterrestrial encounter in Lake Baikal, the worlds largest and deepest freshwater lake, in 1982. A group of military divers, who were training in the lake, supposedly encountered a group of humanoid creatures dressed in silvery suits while at a depth of fifty meters. The divers gave chase and three died in the ensuing underwater scuffle.
Federative Republic of Brazil
Brazil’s alien encounters are some of the most disturbing of all, not least because of their close association with the Chupacabre (Goat Sucker), but also because Brazilian close encounters often end with somebody getting seriously hurt. Take the Colares UFO flap, for example, in which victims were attacked with powerful laser beams, leaving them with radiation burns and puncture wounds.
Perhaps most chilling (although somewhat reassuring) is the seriousness with which the Brazilian government and armed forced treat UFO sightings. It’s as if they know the aliens have some dark intention. When UFOs swarmed the city of Varginha in 1996, the Brazilian Air Force scrambled fighters and the police, fire brigade and army units were mobilized, supposedly capturing two alien creatures. While the details of this incident remain secret, the Brazilian Air Force have released vast amounts of information about UFOs, including the details of the so-called ‘night of the UFOs’, during which they launched fighter jets to intercept an incredible twenty UFOs.
United States of America
There’s no denying it, the U.S.A is a hotbed of alien activity. With literally hundreds of reported UFO sightings each year, the States is the alien holiday capital of the world. It’s only a matter of time until they start retiring there.
Perhaps most compelling evidence of alien visitation is the huge number of ‘mass sightings’ in American airspace. These are UFO sightings in which there are many witnesses, making them the most credible sightings of all. A perfect example of a mass sighting, and a personal favourite of mine, is the so called ‘phoenix lights’ incident of March 1997. Over a hundred witnesses have come forward, all stating to have seen a triangular or ‘V’ shaped craft hovering above the city of Phoenix, Arizona during the evening of March 13th.
It is thought that between five and ten percent of the American population has seen what they would describe as a UFO. The U.S.A also holds the record for the highest number of reported alien abductions.
But why do aliens choose to visit the good old U.S of A? Some would say that they are drawn to its population density, it’s high output of TV and radio signals or its self-deluded belief that it is the most powerful, most advanced and most morally just country in the world. To that, I say, “get over yourself America”. Perhaps, if they are the good kind of aliens, they think that America is the country most in need of a lesson in world peace. Or maybe they think the rest of the world won’t one bit if they keep on poking and probing Americans at will.
