Human Matter

"... Good evening ladies and gentleman, Bruce Newsman reporting here from the presidential bunker in Alaska. We are in the 3d day of the attack. As you already know, brutal aliens are invading our planet in heavy combat armours using advanced warfare technology. But not only they take down our best soldiers on the field, some videos from embedded journalists indicate that they seem to be looking for freshly dead bodies, God knows why. Please take under consideration that while they seem virtually invincible in their armours, on the other hand if they get out they become extremely vulnerable. Some testimonies from various sources tend to confirm that they even cannot breathe too long our air. Take also note that the only moment when the aliens ever exit their armours is when they go scavenge for human bodies. Nobody yet knows why they need fresh corpses, but speculating on the matter is simply terrifying. We'll keep you informed as long as we can broadcast. This is Bruce Newsman. God bless America, God bless our planet. ..."
