I mean how UFO researchers think rather than the actual cases. I think it would be useful to understand what is going on here so that we may be more sensitive to these other cultures. For instance, I have seen an undercurrent of defensiveness on the part of our friends 'south of the border' (not just by reading this List but examining documents from other sources). It seems that _any_ critical assessment or opinion is taken as a vendetta or personal attack. Surely, something is going on here. I remember reading of right (or left) wing death or hit squads in Central or South American countries. There are narco-terrorists. There have been many decades of unknown levels of manipulation by international corporate entities (including other nations). The political wranglings and poverty seem to have held sway for a long time. So, is the reason for the defensiveness and hyper-sensitivity of such UFO researchers due to those reasons or is it something else which I am missing? Could it be due to some sense that the USA has dominated this hemisphere and thus other nations in this hemisphere have to work harder for recognition or credit (esp. in the UFO field)? This would seem odd to me but it is possible. Or is it just the idiosyncratic behavior of individuals? I welcome enlightenment.
