you’ll be dealing with little green men...

If UFO watchers are to be believed, the Army’s top general just admitted that the military is preparing its young men and women to fight off an alien invasion.
"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,” Milley said.
Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley, in an April 21 speech to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the ROTC program at Norwich University, talked about the complex world the young, soon-to-be military officers will face.
Wait, what was that? Did Milley just say cadets will be battling little ... green ... men?!
Several UFO websites — and the people who follow them — seized on Milley’s comment as validation of something out of this world.
“I think this guy probably vanished shortly after this speech. It seems like he’s let way too much info out. Ha!” wrote one person in response to a video clip of Milley’s speech that was posted on YouTube by The Musicmemorylane, the self-described “Ultimate UFO-Conspiracy-Cryptid-Paranormal Channel from the Netherlands.”
“Wow, he said a lot. It wasn’t a very long speech. Enough said. Truth is coming out slowly but surely,” wrote another.
“Joseph Stalin was also experimenting with the idea of super monkey soldiers,” another comment reads.
Military officials batted down any talk of aliens and intergalactic war.
The phrase “little green men” typically refers to foreign troops or paramilitary forces who dress in green attire instead of traditional military gear, the officials said.
“It does not mean fighting troops from outer space,” the officials said.
Cadets preparing to don the uniform will find themselves “engaged in a very deep, long struggle with radical terrorism,” Milley said during his speech. They also will face a revanchist Russia, an aggressive China, a provocative North Korea and Iran, and “any other multiple contingencies that may arise.”
