Report From Iron Mountain:
A study by one "John Doe" (said to be economist John Kenneth Galbraith), Report from Iron Mountain on the Possibility and Desirability of Peace was published in 1967. The study considered the possibility that the belief in UFOs might be used to improve prospects for peace and redirect humankind toward a unified social order. In theory, the report pointed out, a perceived threat from extraterrestrial beings might provide an incentive for human civilization to abandon its internal strife and present a unified front against the alleged menace from alien beings. A threat from "extraterrestrials" was one of several suggested means for helping unify human society and discourage warfare on Earth. The report presented other possible scenarios including the threat of ecological catastrophe. The study also suggested that some flying saucer reports were actually experiments in manipulating public belief, with the aim of reshaping society by encouraging belief in hostile extraterrestrial powers menacing Earth. The report ultimately dismissed the threat-from-aliens scenario, however, as "unpromising" and encouraged investigation to other ways to manafacture "fictitious...enemies" that might serve to unify mankind. Report from Iron Mountain treats the UFO phenomenon from a viewpoint complementary to that of prominent UFO investigator Jcques Valle, who has argued that UFOs may constitute a system to control human belief.

Note: Report from Iron Mountain on the Possibility and Desirability of Peace is reported to be a literary satire/hoax authored by Leonard Lewin. Economist John Kenneth Galbraith publicly endorsed the authenticity of the report but denied that he was the author.
The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and It's Geostrategic Imperatives:
Moreover, As America becomes an increasingly multi-cultural society, it may find it more difficult to fashion a consensus on foreign policy issues, except in the circumstance of a truly massive and widely perceived direct external threat. (p.211)

World Summit conference in Geneva. November 1985.
When you stop to think that we're all God's children, wherever we may live in the world, I couldn't help but say to him, just think how easy his task and mine might be in these meetings that we held if suddenly there was a threat to this world from some other species from another planet outside in the universe. We'd forget all the little local differences that we have between our countries and we would find out once and for all that we really are human beings here on this earth together.

White House transcript of Remarks of the President to Fallston High School Students and Faculty, December 4, 1985.
In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences wolrdwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world.

Speech to the United Nations General Assembly, Forty-second session, Provisional Verbatim Record of the Fourth Meeting, September 21, 1987.
But, I've often wondered what if all of us in the world discovered that we were threatened by an outer--a power from another planet. Wouldn't we all of a sudden find that that we didn't have any differences between us at all, we were all human beings, citizens of the world and wouldn't we come together to fight that particular threat?
-- Ronald Reagan
Ronald Reagan to reporters as he left the White House for Chicago, May 5th, 1988.
Today, America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be greatful! This is especially true if they were told that there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened their very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead with the world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government.

And remember Carol, the last card is the alien card. We are going to build space-based weapons against aliens and all of it is a lie.
