Regal London is the host of the 2012 Olympic Games, and among high security concerns of a terrorist attack, one former member of the UK's Minster of Defense believes we should also be worried about an alien invasion.
Military and UFO expert Nick Pope claims that large international events such as the Olympiad would be a prime opportunity for intelligent life forms traveling from faraway galaxies to make their presence known on Earth.
"With the summer of mass events we are all on high alert for terrorism. But we must also cast our eyes further afield and be prepared for even the most seemingly unfathomable," Pope cautioned. His time at the UK's Ministry of Defense included investigative work on reported UFO sightings in Great Britain during the years from 1991 through 1994. Initially a skeptic, Pope now says he is a firm believer in the existence of intelligent life forms on other planets, and that the governments of the world need to have a plan of action on the table, should they decide to pay Earth a visit, be it peaceful or hostile.
He also claims that the UK government has taken the possibility into very real consideration and have made contingency plans for a "worse case scenario"...a full scale alien invasion. He states that many governments of the world believe alien intelligence has been monitoring terrestrial television and radio broadcasts for several decades, but would not elaborate on a reason for the monitoring.
Pope's role in the UK government has been described as "working for the UK X Files", referencing the hit television show starring David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson about conspiracy theories and paranormal and alien activity. He has published several non-fiction bestsellers about extraterrestrials, including Open Skies, Closed Minds.
