I assume this includes changing one's underwear.

Shoot down if close enough. So, peoples can see real UFO or China spy plane.

I think the concern among US defense circles may be that these unidentified objects have a terrestrial origin, meaning someone has some very trick tech the US maybe doesn't understand. That or the alternative explanation is that some agency in the US is doing something very interesting that cannot be concealed 100% and the US wants to manage the story. Either way it is most interesting.

Kono has said in the past, "Frankly speaking, I don't believe in UFOs."

As UFO stands for an unidentified flying object, the definition covers anything other than extraterritorial spacecraft.

I hear the speculation that Japan's SDF has discussed even drafted an unofficial guideline for possible Godzilla's invasion into Japan archipelago. The film Shin Godzilla (2016) may be based on this secret intelligence.

Capture it, put it out for public display end the conspiracy once and for all. No reason to hide or wait 60 yrs. to come clean. Just do it right away. Then take it away to study and research it.

Just sayin'.

For sure there have been UFO sightings by SDF & others in the past, just that they were laughed away. Now it's serious.

I guarantee if the SDF ever shot down a UFO or found one, the US military would demand it be handed over to them and it would happen. There is probably a secret treaty about this that only the "need to know" authorities are aware of.

At the end of the day, fingers can be pointed at North Korea doing something dodgy.

Project blue beam - false flag in the post?

@ ken, Ive seen that version a few times and another TV co did a deeper more in-depth interview, what your version didn't report was that as soon as the JL plane landed US government officials got involved and ( allegedly ) some people were told to shut up and some of the evidence was, shall we say "altered" I think that there is too much evidence to rule out UFO totally, If you go back to ancient civilisations like the Inca's there are carvings into the temple stones of pictures of what looks like to be UFO's

Japanese Defense Minister Taro Kono on Monday instructed the Self-Defense Forces what to do if they sight unidentified aerial objects that could potentially pose a threat to national security. The following three steps are to be followed exactly.

ONE. You run.

TWO. You slide.

THREE. You hit the bump and take a diiiiive!!!!

I wonder what would be the JSDF's protocol if the UFO suddenly radio'd them and said take me to your leader.

Kono: If you see a UFO, take a day off.

MK Ultra and Project Mockingbird.

Look, if you can take a picture of it, that UFO is no longer unidentified, because it has an identification already made by the sender or you can attach now any second identification as you like.

Call Ultraman and Godzilla.

UFOs would imply that civilizations on other planets light years away from Earth have mastered warp drive or some other faster than light speed capable ships, and not only that, they refuse to introduce themselves.

UFO. The Defense Minister is concerned about UFOs. To follow such an absurd notion: One would suppose UFOs originate in a technologically advanced society. And a Lockheed Martin dinosaur is going to chase it down and do exactly what? This is what the military is centering its strategy onto, UFOs? Wow. Take photo. Smile! Say c h e e s e! Well. Better than planning for a war with China.

Discount nothing, and certainly don't shoot. As an aside Japan does have a history of Sky Gods, The imperial family are after all did get their place from the sky gods. The mirror, the sword the rock, for a country that worships untill recently theses earth gods seems a bit weird to now to poo poo the idea of aliens? Yes or no, if the rituals are true what's the problem, if not that's a problem.

Ah, another day, another gift from Kono the minister for comedy.

In early August, the U.S. Department of Defense announced the establishment of an Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force. 

I'm sure Trump said to somebody, "We oughta look into these flying saucers they were talking about on OAN." And, it became a priority.

The locution, UFO…little green men or women, look green lives matter….

Having said that, the universe is vast…

Our galaxy might be way more vast than we thought


Earthling you are not alone. Something is out there. They could be here already?

There's a guy work down the chip swears he’s Elvis, a contender for alien of the week  

Remember Japanese Defense Minister Taro Kono, insists, take a picture, flash, bang, wallop, what a photograph!

"His instruction, which also calls for analyses on receiving such information from the public, came after his meeting with U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper in Guam late last month, during which the issue was brought up as a potential new area of Japan-U.S. security cooperation."

When the girl you just tried to ask out says "Yeah, sure let's hang out sometime. Y'know like at the farmers market or something. I'll call you. I've got your number".
