In a speech last week at Norwich University, General Mark A. Milley, Chief of Staff for the U.S. Army, told the audience, many of whom were ROTC cadets, that in the future the cadets will be dealing with, among other things, “hybrid armies” and “little green men.” Some UFOers have assumed this to be an admission that armies of aliens and their alien/human hybrids are threatening the Earth. However, both of those are military terms that mean something entirely different.
Milley made the remarks at an event marking the 100th anniversary of the ROTC program. His speech emphasized the qualities that will be important for the cadets in the future, especially given the increasing complexity of world conflicts.
“If the world if (sic) 1916 was complex, or the world of 1945 was complex, the world of 2016 is intensely complex, and I can tell you that from personal experience,” he said. “You’ll be dealing with terrorists, you’ll be dealing with hybrid armies, you’ll be dealing with little green men, you’ll be dealing with tribes, you’re going to be dealing with it all, and you’re going to be dealing with it simultaneously.”
His statements appear to be shocking. He seems to be telling the cadets that he knows from experience they will be fighting aliens! And what about hybrid armies? What are those? They sound terrifying.
Those familiar with terminology used in the study of alleged alien abduction know hybrids to be beings that are half alien and half human. This has lead some websites to proclaim that the Army has admitted they are preparing for battle with aliens!
