Thought it would be appropriate to compile some replies from the below sources to make a separate thread regarding our friends the little green men. It's a good subject to discuss as it deals with much more than just the military. It involves the whole nation. It seems the United States Military Complex is trying to tell us to get ready for bigger things to come. Many nations on this earth use green as their uniform color.
This reply came from a topic regarding the tried and true art of the gif to create memes using visual perceptions as a language in today's culture of internet history.
I like that title. Only, I think the current one seems to apply more so because of the medium involved. The web! We're all in this web connecting to one another using various machines to accomplish this. Using text and images to communicate. The web is one powerful medium. Able to help leap tall buildings and fly up the sky in a single bound. So to speak...
ummm...little green men? Where have I heard that term before?
The following replies came from the same thread:
Little green men. Ha! Well, currently a general is telling a group of new officers what to expect regarding these characters:Army chief talks 'little green men,' and sets off UFO enthusiastsUFOs my ass! Little green men are everywhere on this earth. Here's a realistic example:"Little green men" or "Russian invaders"?
That little green men meme generated by the major news media was quite a nifty trick. Reporting it in such a tongue and cheek manner. Denigrating the serious nature of such a subject. Insulting the general populous by targeting a fringe group of conspiracy theorists. Using the UFO imagery to poke fun. Getting the crazies all riled up to spout inane arguments forward. Further distracting from the seriousness of the Generals speech to his men.I suppose the above is a bit off topic, but, words do create forms of imagery. Little green men can symbolize lots of things.
The guest above pointed out an interesting critique about how the major news media presented the story to the public.
