Preparing for an alien invasion?!

Here we go - another book that puts military confrontation as the answer to all possible future 'unknowns'.

This book gives a strategic defense and warfare analysis of dealing with non-human contact: An Introduction to Planetary Defense: A Study of Modern Warfare Applied to Extra-Terrestrial Invasion by Travis S. Taylor et al.

Book description
"This book describes a serious look at defending the planet in the event of an extra-terrestrial invasion. Travis Taylor, et al, have written the definitive book on the defense of earth against a potential alien incursion. Whatever your beliefs on the subject...the book also serves as an important primer on the potential future of warfare on every level. It is tightly grounded in current day realities of war and extrapolates thoughtfully but closely about future potentials. It should be on the reading list of anyone who is serious about national security and the future of war."

And what if such 'entities' are already here, playing poker deals with our ineffectual leaders? Or perhaps the future is one of cooperation not based on fear and paranoia?

I agree with your last comment. While it is safe to at least be prepared for anything, I don't think anyone should jump to the conclusion that future contact with aliens will be a negative experience.

Hi Sophia - as always, I maintain the positive within the human spirit - and am very wary over how social norms perpetuate the negative 'fear factor'...

Keep the spirits high!

Is it Kingsley or Reeves from now on?
If you want to learn about blogging and "networks" you have to become part of one and live it!
Just a tip.
