Did MacArthur’s Prediction of Alien War Nearly Come True?
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 14, 2006
In 1955, General Douglas MacArthur predicted that the next war would be an interplantary war. Did the mighty general’s prediction nearly come true less than a year later? It did according to “The Top Secret UFO Project,” filmmaker R. J. Thomas’ parody of UFO documentaries.
“Many prominent people have believed in UFOs,” Mr. Thomas said. “MacArthur was one of them. And his statements concerning war with creatures from outer space were the most bold and the most outrageous.”
On October 8, 1955, MacArthur said, “The nations of the world will have to unite, for the next war will be an interplanetary war. The nations of the earth must someday make a common front against attack by people from other planets.”
According to “The Top Secret UFO Project,” President Eisenhower prepared for a showdown with aliens, setting up military operations in a little Colorado town in the summer of 1956.
Based on Thomas’ 2004 novella of the same name, “The Top Secret UFO Project” chronicles the UFO-related events experienced by a tiny Colorado hamlet called Jasper. According to the film, the town dealt with one unusual event after another in the summer of 1956. After a farmer spots a flying saucer zipping over his property, scientists rushed into Jasper to investigate, reporters rushed in looking for stories, and government officials rushed in to keep it a secret from the world.
Billed as “the movie the government does not want you to see,” “The Top Secret UFO Project,” is a parody of the cheesy UFO documentaries of the 70’s like “Overlords of the UFO” and TV programs like “In Search Of.”
Mr. Thomas plays a documentary filmmaker who, in 2003, discovered some top secret government films pertaining to the Jasper Incident of 1956. This inspired him to make a documentary about Jasper’s UFO story, and to discover the truth behind what really happened that mysterious summer in Colorado.
And as for MacArthur’s prediction?
“MacArthur was a veteran of three wars and known for his strategic brilliance,” Mr. Thomas said. “He was not just an oddball spouting off. I’m sure there are a lot of people out there who believe in UFOs simply because he did!”
