With Nato forces withdrawing from the badlands of Afghanistan, the country’s people need all the help they can get to keep extremists from once again seizing power.
But it seems a new intervention has come from an unlikely source… outer space.
U.S. Marines captured this incredible footage of what looks like a UFO hovering over a Taliban encampment – then blowing it to kingdom come.
Devastating: The huge plumes of smoke from the attack obscure the view of the UFO
As soldiers look on, the craft slowly moves into position, before what appear to be muzzle flashes soundlessly emanate from its underside.A split-second later and huge explosions erupt as the fearsome space weapons hit the site of the purported Taliban camp, sending up plumes of smoke that obscure the view of the mysterious bomber.
After the smoke clears, the cameraman zooms in to shoot a close up view of the UFO, which looks unlike any known U.S. military drone.
Most international troops are slated to withdraw at the end of the year, and there are fears that the Afghan army and police are not ready to take over the job of securing the country.

But with possible alien intervention, it could be that a new era has finally begun for Afghanistan’s embattled people.
Perhaps it is time to rename the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), to the Inter-Stellar Assistance Force…
