In this next section, we’ll look at invasions that didn’t rely primarily on military force. These invaders sought to conquer the Earth by fundamentally changing it in some way. They used only a fraction of the manpower seen in the more traditional invasion scenarios.
But they were just as successful. That is to say, not at all.
Each invader only brought a token military force which put them on the knife’s edge from the onset. Unlike the other invasions, the Earthlings had the upper hand when it comes to force. Some of them brought firepower, one even included a squad with high power plasma packs. But that was still just one squad against a million armed troops. The Earth forces eventually took them out, leaving the rest of the invasion force helpless. These plans relied on total secrecy as their main line of defense. In every case, all it took was one slip for the entire plan to be put in jeopardy. That’s the flaw that all these invasions share.
But these plans also had other defects that worked against their own success. Once more, we’ll see that poor planning nets poor results.
