With Nato forces withdrawing from the badlands of Afghanistan, the country's people need all the help they can get to keep extremists from once again seizing power.

But it seems a new intervention has come from an unlikely source... outer space.

U.S. Marines captured this incredible footage of what looks like a UFO hovering over a Taliban encampment - then blowing it to kingdom come.

Pinging the unidentified aerial phenomena list (ufo) ..

May 8, 1950-This is one of the most famous UFO pictures ever taken.
Photographed by Paul Trent, and first witnessed by his wife.
They were published in a local newspaper in McMinnville, Oregon.
Shortly thereafter, the Trent photos were published in Life magazine edition of June 26, 1950.
The rest is history.
(These photos have been deemed authentic for over 50 years. The analysis of the McMinnville photos by Dr.Bruce Maccabee PhD, can be found here = http://brumac.8k.com/trent1.html )

Those interested in the uap/ufo ping list, please Freepmail
LasVegasDave (freepmail works best)
if you would like your name added to the list.
( Approximately 200+ freepers are currently on the ping list ).

It’s our anti-gravity craft.

Must be an “Old School” UFO, Gatling gun instead of “death ray” :)

It appears to be an RQ-170.

Black triangle aircraft/anti-gravity craft have been reported since at least the early 1990s.

It looks like an unmanned zeppelin, with rockets, to me. Seems like a great way to achieve long loiter times, reduced pilot risk, local control - and ability to deliver a nice punch.

Bravo!

Real explosion, fake aircraft.

If the US did have such an aircraft, why would they use it for this?

I don’t know, but some of those explosions were air bursts.

Given commonly-available CG/imaging technologies, this has to be fake. Fun to watch, but fake.

That said, something like this would be a helluva replacement for both the A-10 and AC-130. $:-)

You'd think with some of the great CGI software, they could have put in a few laser beams and such......Just saying.

It’s clearly a star destroyer from Star Wars and, therefore, fake.

That looks awful familiar. I think I’ve seen that footage on youtube before and the “UFO” looks a bit CGI-ish to me. Also, the “footage” is restricted to low-resolution 240p (so you can’t enlarge it without pixellation) is a bit of a clue too.

I’m calling Bull-Butter on this... But it would be very cool if all that money we sunk into DOD R&D produced a tactical or strategic UFO!! (Hey mother-russia, you better behave...)

One of ours - courtesy of the skunkworks at Area 51. Likely leaked as a warning to Iran of those little black ops surprises that await them should they get stupid with Israel.

I think the same guys who 'shopped this video also did this previous work about the same craft, this time over Virginia. Click the pic...

It’s a fake. Look up on YouTube “JDAM with secondary” and you’ll find the exact video, just reversed 180 degrees, but without the UFO.

What was in that video didn’t look like the Sentinel. It had a buldge under its belly.

It was a JDAM attack that the frame was flipped left to right.

Try the mid 1970's, and decades earlier if you want to grasp the material science advances over the last 60 years.

And there's nothing "anti-gravity" about this technology. It's what Hermann Oberth casually referred to as "ze electric space ship," repelling against Earth's magnetic field.

It's always looked good "on paper," but impractical, driving the development of high-temperature conductive and light-weight materials, along with a lot of other technologies.

I absolutely hate it when space aliens steal our technology (and actual equipment). I guess the local Taliban managed to irritate the space aliens somehow.
