'Alien' Seeks To Put An End To UFO Discussions

The Yomiuri Shimbun

Opposition lawmakers have joined ruling party members in calling
on Cabinet members to stop talking about UFOs.

Democratic Party of Japan Secretary General Yukio Hatoyama on
Friday told reporters that government officials and lawmakers
should avoid getting deeply involved in the UFO discussions,
adding his voice to similar comments by some ruling party

"If aliens existed and came to Earth, they would have to be
creatures of far greater intellect than human beings, which is
just impossible," said Hatoyama, who is often called an "alien"
because of his appearance. "Since it's all complete fantasy, it
makes no sense to discuss how the Defense Ministry should

Hatoyama's eagerness to close the curtain on the UFO discussion
stems partly from the fact that it was a DPJ lawmaker who
triggered the discussion by submitting a written question to the
Cabinet, which asked whether the government could confirm that
UFOs were alien spacecraft, according to sources.

In response, the government on Tuesday issued a statement it was
unable to confirm whether UFOs were piloted by aliens.

DPJ House of Councillors Ryuji Yamane, who submitted the
question, has posted the response on his Web site, and says that
he also wants to end the alien furor.

"I and my staff have been relieved to find that we haven't had
any calls of complaint over the whole issue, which may be partly
down to the fact that Chief Cabinet Secretary Nobutaka Machimura
made a positive statement [regarding his personal views on the
existence of UFOs]," Yamane said on his Web site.

"Now, I'd like to devote myself to welfare policy," he added.
