L.A. Air Raid For Monday Mystery...!

After reading this article from Listverse, you have to wonder just how many things labeled "weather balloons" by the government actually were just that!

Over the years we've been told time and time again that something we've seen is nothing more than weather balloons or something similar. Seems to be a rather handy way to try and prevent folks from asking too many questions, doesn't it?

The Battle of Los Angeles

On February 24, 1942 in Los Angeles, the air raid sirens began to go off. Many believed that the United States is experiencing another attack from Japan and we were ready to go. A complete blackout was fired as the 37th Coast Artillery Brigade unloaded 1400 12.8lb anti-aircraft shells at a mysterious object floating in the night sky. The bombardment went on for a full hour with the “all-clear” being given at 7:21am.

The media went crazy after the incident, and it became front-page news. What could possibly remain in the night sky with multiple spotlights on it soaking up 1,400 rounds of anti-aircraft munitions over the course of an hour? A weather balloon of course! Well that’s what the government said when questioned about the incident. The missiles killed four to five civilians, and three people died of stress-induced heart attacks. The craft then moved over the state, hovering at certain times while it was being fired at. Some described it as one large object and others as multiple small objects. Regardless, there was something mysterious over the city of Los Angeles that night that, to this day, defies explanation.

In a way it's sad to think that our own government will keep certain bit of information from us for our "own protection", don't you agree? I don't think everyone will drop dead from hearing the truth. After all, some people died just from the threats of "what-ifs", so telling the facts might have been a good choice anyway.

Coffee out on the patio this morning.

I always take what the government says with a grain of salt. They lie. All the time.
