I noticed when I was a kid that there was a jump from saucer shaped craft (which the Nazi's worked on) to the triangle shaped craft in a short period of time. It also mirrored our Desert Storm B2 stealth bomber which we just unveiled. Think about the War of the Worlds broadcast. Think about the need for secrecy in a world that is nearly impossible to hide something. Why were UFO's so common during the Cold War? Why are some sightings near military bases so widely publicized and obvious (like Phoenix Lights) if it is supposed to be secret? Your conclusion must either be it is top secret craft disguised as aliens because it is the best cover imaginable or aliens are dumb/evil and the government is covering it up for various nefarious reasons. I followed that line of thinking. It took me all over. It can take you into spiritual realms more often than material - i.e., Aliens are Demons, but the appearance is what always got me. It seemed like they followed the chronology of my favorite comics, then it hit me. I read a couple books on it and stumbled upon a few lines of thinking that made me think about it another way as well but... So either the people that saw Grey Aliens in the early days were dreaming/saw spiritual beings/influenced by mass media, or the government staged these things to test craft and used pop culture to propagate this brainwashing which is part of what TV is for in the first place. There is the possibility it is both, but Grey Aliens, if they are real, are not physical beings at the very least because their form was predated from their first sighting. If that makes any sense at all. Ok, so you have a super advanced aircraft that you can't fly over the country without people seeing and hearing it. What do you do? Disguise it as something foreign. Who has bases all over the world in UFO hot spots? Why is South America so popular with these things? What country would be flying all over the continent without fear of US intervention? I could do a UFO thread easily.
