Iranian Government OK's UFO Shootdown
The Iranian government has announced that it has ordered its air force to attack UFOs which are being seen near Iranian nuclear facilities in substantial numbers. Air Force Colonel Salman Mahini has said "all anti-aircraft units and jet fighters have been ordered to shoot down the flying objects over Iran's airspace."
UFO fever has swept Iran since last summer. There have been hundreds of sightings of glowing craft at low altitudes, a significant number of which have been close to nuclear facilities.
Iran is assuming that the unknown objects being observed are US aerial reconnaisance vehicles.
The Iranian daily Resalat reported on Saturday that unknown objects have been seen over Bushehr and Isfahan provinces in recent weeks.
What is happening in Iran happened in the United States in the late forties and early fifties, when UFOs were seen in large numbers, especially in the western US, and often close to extremely sensitive military and nuclear facilities.
According to UFO investigator Stanton Friedman a UFO was observed near the Kalispel Radar Facility in Montana in late 1951. Kalispel had a jet in the air at the time, and it was ordered to shoot down the UFO. Neither the UFO nor the jet was ever seen again.
So far, Iran has not succeeded in shooting any of the objects down.
There has also been extensive UFO activity over India and China recently, and rumors that the Indian government has succeeded in some exchanges with the occupants of these objects persist.
