The world appears to be safe from enemy aliens. Well, at least in
The announcement must have come as an enormous relief to the people of
Switzerland. After all, the Swiss are famed for their neutrality, their
ability to have survived as a nation, without invasion, for so long. The
prospect of a takeover must have been intolerable.
Especially a takeover by aliens from space.
No fear. The Swiss army, ever vigilant to protect the national interest,
has taken the unusual step of delivering a formal statement this week on
unidentified flying objects - UFO's. The statement says, quote, the
defense ministry has no reason to believe in the existence of UFO's, or
to assume that they pose a danger to security.
The army, apparently, was reacting to speculation in the Swiss media
that there was a special military unit following reported UFO's. Not
true, and the defense ministry says it hopes this will be the end of it.
Unfortunately, as we all know, it may not be that simple. There is a
small but significant industry based on UFO's. You will find evidence of
its existence in the supermarket tabloids, and, all too often, on
television talk shows; there's always somebody who believes he, or she,
was kidnapped by aliens and held prisoner.
It has never been clear to us why an impartial observer - and we would
assume someone watching from space would quite likely be considered an
impartial observer - would want to come to this planet in the first
place, given the peculiarities of the human species.
But that's all well and good; the Swiss army is not commenting one way
or the other on the reality of UFO's. All they are saying is - they are
=not= in Switzerland. In the words of the ministry spokesman, there
have been no UFO landings on the government square here.
What a relief.
