#47 Earth Bombs Mars


The Earth spaceships were close to Mars. Hypnotized by the beauty of the planet, the soldiers were snapped back to reality by the sharpness of the commanding general’s voice over the communication system. “In five minutes we will begin dropping atom bombs on Mars. We hope that these bombs will cripple any Martian resistance that we might otherwise expect.” The general signed off and the soldiers rapidly reported to their assigned positions. Soon the communication system clicked on and the general spoke again. “The Martians have set up a force field. The bombs are exploding in mid-air, before they reach the ground. Our men will have to land and fight.”
