Area 51, Hangar 18, Montauk, Pine Gap, Fort Detrick, Rudloe Manor, Zhitkur, Porton Down, the Dugway Proving Ground, and the Dulce Base: these are just a handful of the many and varied select, highly-classified installations about which the governments of the United States, Australia, China, Russia, the United Kingdom and elsewhere, prefer that we, the general public, remain steadfastly ignorant of.
And those same governments have extremely good reasons for wishing us to remain in the dark. It is at these very same secret facilities that, for decades, clandestine research is said to have been undertaken into lethal viruses, genetic manipulation, crashed UFOs and deceased alien entities, biological-warfare, mind-control experimentation, futuristic aircraft and spacecraft, teleportation, weather-modification, invisibility, time-travel, and much, much more of a conspiratorial and cosmic nature.
For decades, sensational claims have been made to the effect that alien spacecraft and deceased – and possibly even living – extraterrestrial beings are held deep in the desert of Nevada at the infamous Area 51. Are the amazing assertions true? Or is the whole thing a brilliant, government orchestrated charade to hide the truth about groundbreaking aviation-based technologies of a very down-to-earth nature? It is controversial questions like these that have justifiably led to Area 51’s reputation as the ultimate secret base.
Across the Atlantic, the British Isles are home to a number of profoundly secret sites, including Porton Down, a highly-classified installation whose work has included research into biological-weaponry, chemical-warfare, and even, reportedly, alien viruses. Rumors also flourish regarding Porton Down’s links to the suspicious deaths of numerous microbiologists in the post-9/11 era. Are government agents secretly assassinating key scientists in the field of exotic viruses? Many say “Yes!” Then there are the secret tunnels far below the famous London Underground railway-system. Accounts of strange creatures lurking within the depths of the old tunnels abound, as do claims that crashed UFOs are stored far below the myriad tunnels.
Moving further afield, controversial testimony suggests that there exists a super-secret installation on the far side of the Moon that is controlled by elements of the U.S. military, alien entities, or possibly both. Sounds incredible? Yes! But, that the claims of such a base existing come from respectable, named sources makes the story even more thought-provoking. Equally amazing – and disturbing, too – are the assertions that government agencies are secretly constructing massive underground facilities on our planet that are designed to withstand the terrifying destruction many believe is coming our way in December 2012. Time will tell if the government’s actions, and the ancient prophecies of the Mayans, prove to be valid or not.
Turning our attention elsewhere, there can be absolutely no doubt whatsoever that China is, today, one of the world’s most powerful nations, and such a situation is likely to both continue and increase in the near future. And this applies to its construction of Top Secret facilities, too. Take, for example, the undersea Sanya Base, which is located at the southern-most tip of Hainan Island. Deep below the surface a vast installation exists that houses an untold number of nuclear submarines, whose missiles are primed to take out Europe and the United States in the event of all-out war. Satellite imagery reveals gigantic steel doors built into the hills that dominate the shoreline of the area, and give every indication that a massive, underground lair is being constructed in the near-hollowed-out hills. Reports out of China speculate that the base will serve as an emergency-management center for the Chinese elite, in the event of a Third World War breaking out. Meanwhile, back to the United States…
For more than forty-years, rural North America has played host to an uninvited, and most definitely unwelcome, guest. With remarkable stealth, it prowls the length and breadth of the country by night and day, committing atrocious acts of mutilation on innocent cattle. Blood, bodily organs, fluids and glands are removed with disturbing speed and accuracy, giving every impression that a superior technology is at work. In many instances of cattle-mutilation, strange aerial lights and black helicopters are reported in the same areas, suggesting that the two phenomena, whatever their ultimate nature, have a common point of origin. From the mid-1970s onwards, many such mutilations of animals, and accompanying sightings of UFOs and unmarked helicopters, occurred in the vicinity of the northern New Mexico town of Dulce. This has led to a remarkable theory: that below a huge mesa in Dulce, a vast underground installation manned by alien beings exists. The aliens, we are told, are engaged in a horrific program of genetic manipulation. Worse still: they are hostile, have total control over the installation, and the government is unable to prevent the E.T’s from following their nightmarish underground agenda of mutilation and experimentation. And Dulce may not be alone in the high-strangeness stakes.
Camp Hero – also known as the Montauk Air Force Station – can be found at the easterly end of Long Island, New York. For years, this unique location has been the target of attention for numerous conspiracy theorists, who believe that a secret arm of the U.S. Government has been engaged in research at the base on such controversial issues as time-travel – borne out of the so-called, legendary Philadelphia Experiment of 1943, in which it is alleged the U.S. Navy transported one of its ships from the height of the Second World War to the present day. Mind-control experiments undertaken on military personnel and members of the general public; bizarre gene-splicing programs to create Frankenstein-like atrocities; and Top Secret weather-control experiments are just some of the controversies surrounding the mystery of Montauk.
And what of the former Soviet Union?
Better known as the Russian Area 51, Zhitkur is a highly secret, and incredibly well-guarded, installation built below a seemingly innocuous, small town in the region of Volgogradskaya Oblast. And, in the very same way that rumors, accounts and whistleblower testimony suggests recovered alien spacecraft are being studied and test-flown at Area 51, Nevada, similar tales surround Zhitkur. Stories coming from former employees of the base tell of Top Secret studies of crashed UFOs – “Russian Roswell’s,” in other words. And finally…
Most people will remember how, when the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 began, then-Vice President Dick Cheney was famously evacuated to an “undisclosed location.” What is less well known is that the U.S. Government has built, and continues to build, other secret bunkers designed to protect government officials not just faced with future 9-11-style events, but also dirty-bomb attacks, as well as outright nuclear-assaults by hostile nations. These deeply-buried Bunkers of Terror can be found all across the United States, and collectively represent a vast network designed to protect the higher echelons, while the remainder of the populace may be forced to confront, and deal with, the terrifying carnage topside.
As the above demonstrates, whether situated deep under the oceans, far below the ground, or within the heart of remote desert locales, countless secret places are guarded with a paranoid zeal by those in power who wish to keep their secrets buried and locked far away from prying-eyes. Sometimes, however, the huge, steel, near-impenetrable vault-like doors that help to hide the shocking truths open wide – or are forced open – and the shocking secrets within are revealed…
