NINE MONTHS AFTER CONTACT
Astro-biologists say that humans would be more in danger from alien bacteria, and germ warfare has no effect. But, what if the aliens are not biological...simply machines?
In the case of non-biological attackers, there is one low-tech weapon that may be a match for the best technology of intergalactic invaders: a balloon. This unlikely weapon could be a game-changer. A balloon is so low-tech that it could be nearly invisible.
Around the world, a coordinated balloon assault armed with high explosives and scavenged military bombs is underway. Throughout history, low tech assaults regularly succeed against superior technology.
A human victory over alien technology may have less to do with tactics, and more to do with the human spirit - as it's evolved over 200,000 years.
