The US military is the strongest armed force in the world. With over 3,000 aircraft belonging to the US Navy alone – a fleet that rivals most regular air forces – 11 aircraft carriers, another air force 5,000 aircraft strong, and the US Army and US Marine Corps , the force that Washington can muster is truly terrifying.
Even Russia and China realize this. To a large extent, their refusal to enter into military blocs against the United States is motivated by a genuine desire for multipolarity, de-escalation and peaceful coexistence.
Even if a war remains confined to the conventional realm under the nuclear umbrella, the damage the US military can cause to Russian and Chinese forces is devastating.
If Russia and China, whose armies are technically competent enough to beat stealth and erode the American advantage, even the reverse is true. A technologically advanced military like the United States can also reverse the disadvantages imposed by overly advanced platforms like the F-22 and F-35.
Aircraft carriers and planes aside, the US can muster dozens of highly advanced submarines, space assets and a landing force – if it comes down to that – to seriously challenge China and Russia. , even on land.
This is why Russia and China have developed anti-access/area denial (A2/AD) technologies and missiles – to prevent the main thrust of the US military from getting close and to avoid taking it head-on.
In other words, the deterrence holds not only because the United States is wary of directly fighting its competitors, but because both would also like to avoid a direct confrontation with the superpower.
But, interestingly, it turns out that what really holds the U.S. military in the most unmilitary and subtle way, without coming across as a conventional threat, is something that “belongs neither to Russia nor to China”.
This seemingly sensationalist implication is not the work of eccentric conspiracy theorists or mad scientists. Yet it is now the subject of long-running congressional investigations, in which US military personnel have made indirect suggestions.
A recent report by The Sun is fascinating and terrifying in what he has discovered.
In stark contrast to what U.S. military officials told their congressional panels in May of this year, an on-duty United States Air Force (USAF) official revealed that they routinely fire at unidentified aerial phenomena ( UAP).

This follows a long-running controversy based on congressional hearings since 2017, where service members reported that their radars were jammed and communications were down.
“The Air Force regularly observes and even kinetically engages UAP in sensitive operational areas around the world to this day. While some UAPs are ultimately identified, all too often, others are hastily dismissed outright. due to an inability to properly classify them, based on displayed and observed characteristics,” the unnamed US serviceman quoted.
However, Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence Scott Bray previously denied firing on the UAPs when responding to a question from Representative Raja Krishnamoorthi of Illinois.
However, Bray admitted there have been sightings that U.S. officials “just can’t explain.” Some of the most famous images show UAPs/UFOs moving seamlessly between sea and air, while US submarines have reported detecting objects moving at unprecedented speeds and maneuverability beyond man-made devices.
For example, pilots over the years, having spotted fuzzy-looking drones, say that being incredibly fast and nimble objects should still have essential aerodynamic characteristics like having some form of propulsion/exhaust and damper. latent kinetic energy.
The objects are shown moving without any thrust at speeds approaching Mach 1.5 and suddenly changing direction, stopping by a penny, or accelerating in a way that just appears to be moving forward.
“There are a small handful of cases in which we have more data than our analysis has simply not been able to paint a full picture of what happened,” adding that UFOs/UAPs had “ unexpected flight characteristics,” Bray himself told Congress.
Congressional investigations were themselves inspired by the work of investigative journalists Jeremy Corbell and George Knapp. They obtained and released a treasure trove of visual evidence of UFOs tracked by the US military in 2021.
The videos combine Navy radar displays and thermal and infrared recordings from electro-optical tracking systems (EOTS) aboard US Navy warships, helicopters, reconnaissance aircraft and combat aircraft. Bray’s interview before the Congressional committee came after another hearing on May 17 chaired by Congressman Andre Carson, which was later changed to a closed hearing following a request from Deputy Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security. Ronald S. Moultrie.

The issue gained international attention after the 2004 footage captured by Commander Chad Underwoodnow known as a “tick-tock” drone event, where he reported strobe lines on his radar screen, which he later reported to Corbell as “jamming lines”.
Underwood, in his interview with Corbell, answers in the affirmative when asked if his radar going bad after detecting the “ticking” UFO/UAP was an “indication of active jamming”.
“Once I had the target of interest on my radar, I took a ‘lock’, and that’s when all the great stuff started to happen. The erratic nature of ‘ticking’ , the speed, told me.
Then we started seeing “strobe lines” of jam. Strobe lines are vertical lines that appear on your radar indicating that you are stuck.
The Pentagon released a report, the first of its kind, on UAP sightings with encounters in June of last year with more than 100 unexplained object skirmishes with the military. The United States has also confirmed the existence of the Advanced Threat Identification Program (ATIP), which existed until 2017 and was replaced by the UAP Task Force in 2020.
But France, an ally of the United States, has led the compilation and publication of explosive findings since 1977, analyzing 8,000 encounters over the past 40 years. Of these, 4% (300) remain truly unexplained. Known as the Group for Studies and Information on Unidentified Aerospace Phenomena (GEIPAN), based in Toulouse and reporting to the French space agency CNES.
Study reports 81 cases where pilots encountered electromagnetic effects on or more aircraft systems, affecting radio, autopilot (3 cases) and fire control systems in military aircraft that rendered weapons insensitive (4 incidents). In 31 cases, the pilots had to perform evasive maneuvers to avoid collision with the UAP/UFO, injuring numerous passengers in five cases.
