      Is Hussein Owner of Crashed UFO?

      An UFO-related incident that occurred four years ago poses a
      troubling question whether any kind of cooperation is possible
      between Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein and extraterrestrials,
      UFOlogist Joseph Trainor declared in his review UFO Roundup
      (issue 51 of December 17, 2002). On December 16, 1998, during
      Operation Desert Fox against Iraq, a video clip aired on CNN
      showed a UFO hovering over Baghdad; it moved away to avoid a
      stream of tracer anti-aircraft fire. At that time we all thought
      it was another UFO sighting, although captured on videotape. But
      now, ufologists think it was much more than a mere incident.

      Jack Sarfatti reported that Friday evening, December 6, 2002
      someone called the Art Bell radio show, claimed his connection
      with the military and informed that a UFO crashed in Iraq
      several years ago. The USA is currently searching for any
      pretext to invade Iraq. In fact, the USA is motivated by the
      greatest fear that Saddam will reverse-engineer the crashed
      alien spacecraft.

      It is allegedly said that the craft crashed during the Gulf War
      (1990-1991), or more recently (probably in December 1998). This
      became some kind of Iraq s Rosewell. The USA is currently
      reverse-engineering the Rosewell craft and fears that Saddam s
      scientists may become even more successful than Americans in
      this or that sphere. It was said that these researches may give
      Iraq a considerable advance and even make it a leading super

      UFO Roundup's Arab journalists failed either to confirm or to
      deny these rumors. Aiasha al-Hatabi replied to Joseph Trainor
      that he heard nothing about a UFO crash in Iraq. In the words of
      Mohammed Daud al-Hayyat, there are talks about extraterrestrials
      in Iraq, but nothing is said about any crash. It is rumored at a
      market in Sulaimaniya, to the south of Zarzi, that aliens are
      Saddam s guests. Where do they stay then? People mention some
      underground base. But Saddam has a palace in this valley, an old
      stronghold Qalaat-e-Julundi. Earlier it belonged to the royal
      family. After the revolution, the government took possession of
      the fortress, and now, like every palace in Iraq it is a summer
      residence of Saddam Hussein. The fortress is mentioned here for
      a very simple reason: it is practically impossible to penetrate
      into it. The citadel stands on a hill surrounded with vertical
      precipices on three sides; the precipices plunge down to the
      Little Zab river. It is said that Saddam lets aliens stay there.

      Mohammed Hajj al-Amdar said on the basis of strange stories
      coming out of that valley: Saddam gave the aliens sanctuary, so
      that they couldn t be captured by Americans. Nobody can reach
      the citadel Qalaat-e-Julundi at night. They say that the aliens
      created watchdogs for Saddam. The aliens took ordinary desert
      scorpions and used their bio-engineering to grow the scorpions
      to giant size. Scorpions of a cow-size! They are wonderful
      watchdogs: they blend in with the desert, swiftly and silently
      move on their warm-blooded prey for a decisive attack. Luckless
      intruders hear just some strange sound from behind stones, then
      a pincer crushes their necks, another pincer crushes their legs;
      then the victims is slammed to the ground and beaten with a
      barbed tail six or seven times. Death comes almost immediately.

      Joseph Trainor came to a conclusion that something strange is
      actually happening in the valley of the Little Zab river, but it
      is not clear what exactly. It is not ruled out that Saddam
      intentionally spreads these rumors so that to scare people away
      from some important military object located in the old fortress
      of Qalaat-e-Julundi.

      Nevertheless, it is not the only information about a UFO crash
      in that area. Many years ago, on June 20, 1993, an information
      was published on FIDOnet s MUFONET BBS NETWORK, it was a letter
      of some Steve from Britain. He openly warned: The following
      information was published in Amateur Radio Packet BBS on June 13
      by some short-wave transmitter for spreading all over the world.
      I know nothing about the man who published the information, I
      also cannot say whether his information is true. The man
      reported that some aircraft was found after it was brought down
      by F-16 over Saudi Arabia during raids in Baghdad.

      The information itself said: A high-ranking source admitted that
      US Air Force s F-16 brought down a UFO over Saudi Arabia during
      the Operation Desert Storm, and five countries are trying to
      conceal information about this fact. I don t know details, but
      it was some plane unknown to me. Saudis who were with me at that
      moment, were scared so much that they asked American, British
      and French investigators to come to the crash site immediately.

      Colonel Petrokov said that at that moment he was on a visit to
      Er Riyadh, where together with a Russian group he managed to
      examine the crashed aircraft before American troops
      participating in Desert Storm came to the crash site. He said:
      The aircraft was round and made of some material that I never
      saw myself. About one third of the craft was torn out by blasts
      of American missiles. Saudis didn t let us touch anything, but
      we managed to see appliances, mechanisms and other things that
      bewildered us absolutely. Inscriptions on the control panel and
      on the scales were in some unknown language.

      It was a relatively small craft, of approximately 15 feet in
      diameter. It had three chairs, probably for crew members, but
      they were so small as if meant for children. To all appearance,
      space aliens were just about three feet tall. However, it seems
      incredible that there were no dead bodies at the crash site;
      what is more, nothing that might look like an engine was found
      there as well. Probably American missiles hit the engine
      immediately and destroyed it. Later, operators of Saudi radar
      stations told me that no ejection or falling of some subjects
      out of the craft was registered. Searching helicopters surveyed
      the desert, but the pilots failed to find any surviving crew
      member close to the crash site.

      At the radar station Petrokov learnt that the target identified
      as a UFO emerged from nowhere when four F-16 headed for Baghdad.
      One of the American planes broke the line and directed toward
      the UFO. The alien craft started moving south-west, away from
      the American plane, and the latter pursued it. When the F-16 was
      three miles away from the object, the craft fired at it but
      missed. Then the American plane fired a missile at the UFO. A
      horrifying sound followed and the spacecraft dropped on the
      ground. Petrokov says that when American investigators came to
      the crash site, he and his people were ordered to leave the area
      for Er Riyadh. The colonel says, it is highly likely that
      Americans didn t want others see some other things that were in
      the crash site in addition to the round shape of the craft made
      of some unknown material and the fact that no aliens survived
      after the crash.

      In Petrokov s words, people from his team managed to take
      pictures of the site, and neither Saudis nor Americans noticed
      it. But the next day the team was ordered to bring the pictures
      to Russian authorities. American military engineers gathered all
      wreckage and removed them for further study in the USA.

      This story seems to be absolutely unlikely. As we see, the
      source of the information is just a Russian colonel, some
      Petrokov. If no additional information follows in connection
      with the case, it may be still considered just doubtful
      anonymous rumors.
