First Godzilla turns out to be totally fake, and now this:
According to the AFP, [Lawmaker/Celebrity Wrestler Antonio] Inoki queried Defense Minister Gen Nakatani whether Japanese fighter jets had ever intercepted extraterrestrial objects and if “studies were going on” to determine their existence.
“When the Air Self Defense Force detects indications of an unidentified flying object that could violate our country’s airspace, it scrambles fighter jets if necessary and makes visual observation,” Nakatani responded earnestly.
“They sometimes find birds or flying objects other than aircraft but I don’t know of a case of finding an unidentified flying object believed to have come over from anywhere other than Earth,” he said.
Good to know.
