via ‘Time is now to act against Iran,’ says US national security adviser

US National Security Adviser Herbert Raymond McMaster warned the international community that the time has come to act against Iranian proxies in the Middle East.

“What’s particularly concerning is that this network of proxies is becoming more and more capable, as Iran seeds more and more… destructive weapons into these networks,” McMaster said at the Munich Security Conference, according to Reuters.

Sounding the alarm on the urgency of halting Iranian efforts across the region, McMaster said, “So the time is now, we think, to act against Iran.”

McMaster accused Iran of planning to use “Hezbollah-style” proxy armies in Iraq and Syria to weaken and destabilize regional Arab governments.

Theories about alien life is the sort of concept that seems like it would have only come up recently in the scope of human history. Between the moon landing in 1969 and the growth of the science fiction genre, most would likely peg the 20th century as the origin of humanity’s awareness of possible life beyond our planet.

In actuality, this may not be the case. There are a number of historical paintings that some claim feature representations of alien contact—we’re talking about UFOs, people!

Here are 10 works of art—painted hundreds of years before man ever went to space—that seem to show evidence of UFOs. They’re just a little out of this world!
