The citizens of Springfield circa 1938 heard Welles' infamours War of the Worlds broadcast. Thinking it to be a real invasion, they began rioting and destroyed the town. Lisa notified the citizens that it was all a hoax and, angry at being fooled, the citizens of Springfield vowed to not fall for such a trick again. Kang and Kodos decided this is the perfect time for a real invasion, and began destroying what was left of the town. True to their word, the town did not believe that it is a real invasion and ignored it, even though Welles came to Springfield, admitted that it is not a staged act, and begged them to do something. Unfortunately, they did not, and three years later Kang and Kodos are overlooking the ruins, mulling on what went wrong and why they weren't greeted as liberators as they rid Earth of weapons of mass disintegration during "Operation Enduring Occupation".[2]
