    For the Ultimate Attack, by Travis S. Taylor, Ph.D. & Bob Boan, Ph.D.

    Thoroughly enjoyable read asking many provocative questions, perhaps of interest to forum participants here. Presents Earthlings in Al Quaeda role in asymmetric warfare with more technologically advanced invading alien bastards. Posits that even benevolent aliens may present difficulties for humanity if unprepared for consequences.

    Can you provide a few avenues of discussions for people that have not (and most probably will not) read the book?


    Imo, If Aliens reach our solar system, and for some reason decide to attack us, it will be difficult, unless they are Retro-Aliens like invasion from mars with not much more than guns that shoot lasers instead of bullets.

    1- They might divert asteroids from the asteroid belt, until the crust of the earth is molten.
    2- They might take over control of ICBMs and manipulate us into triggering thermonuclear war that would cause our own destruction.
    3- Use a highly contagious viral weapon that is deadlier than ebola but spreads faster then the flu, but that causes little symptoms (minor caughing) for 10 days but then becomes deadly, and then infect travelers in most major airports, for 10 consecutive days (before humans realize what up the pandemic would have spread below the radar to all major urban centers and then hit like a tsunami).

    Imo if advanced aliens would want to destroy human civilization, they would most probably not attack by conventional military warfare for which soldiers would be of any use.

    An alien invasion would probably be pointless for them anyway. Whatever resources the little green men might need would be readily available in the asteroid belt (metals), comets and planetesimals such as Ceres (water) and practically all over the place rather than this little place of ours. (coal and petrol is out of the question unless they are a bunch of victorian-age martians or space-bikers).

    On the other hand, there is the possibility that we might be sitting right on top of something very rare and valuable for yet unknown forms of propulsion; just imagine a tribe of hunter-gatherers living on top of a huge oil reserve thinking "why would the "white man" want our land? For hunting zebras?"

    Let us remind outselves that the original Earth was destroyed by a Vogon Constructor Fleet in the process of building a hyperspace bypass.

    I think we could all just get highly intoxicated, and ward off the aliens by destroying our environment by covering the surface of the Earth in vomit.
