Feds warn UFO fans against storming Area 51: The military ‘stands ready’
Many people regard Area 51 as the hub for suspicious activity, specifically extraterrestrial occurrences.
Well, a growing number of people want to put these myths and rumors to the test, to find out the truth behind Area 51.
Predictably, the government doesn’t want any such thing to happen and have issued a warning against these UFO fans, saying that “the military will be waiting.”
The Upcoming Siege
First formulated in a private Facebook group, the plan has been titled ‘Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us.’
The organizers have set September 20th, 2019 as the date for the planned storming of Area 51. It is believed to start at around 3 am, with everyone meeting up at the Area 51 Alien Centre. This isn’t just a few crazed fans either, the plan has attracted hundreds of thousands of people, all who are willing to attend and walk (or run) as one.
There’s a lot of mystery surrounding this particular military base as it’s always been kept under wraps and hidden from the public, which is why there’s such a large following of conspiracy theorists.
Furthermore, the Nevada base has a 25-mile no-fly zone for civilian aircraft which means images of the base in its entirety are rarely seen, which makes things that much more intriguing. It is also believed to be the epicenter of many UFO sightings, which, again, the government has not confirmed or denied.
Despite everyone’s intent to storm the base, the Air Force has responded and issued a warning against anyone planning to participate. When pressured for a response by several media outlets, Air Force spokeswoman Laura McAndrews declined to elaborate on specific details. That said, she did, essentially threaten, anyone who may be serious about the plan to infiltrate the Nevada Air Force base.
“[Area 51] is an open training range for the U.S. Air Force, and we would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area where we train American armed forces. The U.S. Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets,” McAndrews threatened.
McAndrews stated that Area 51 is an open training range for the U.S. Air Force and that they would strongly discourage anyone from trying to come into the area without prior clearance. The base is still where American armed forces are being trained and the U.S. Air Force will always stand ready to protect America and its assets, she went on to say. However, as the number for the planned storming continue to grow, there is also some doubt as to whether or not the Air Force will be able, or even willing to stop such large amount of people.
A Small Army: Almost 1 Million People Signed Up
As of today, there are least 950,000 people who have signed up to come together and infiltrate the base to try and find out the truth.
There is also a further 950,000 people who have shown significant interest in the event, and that’s on Facebook alone! There’s still a few months until the event as well so plenty of time for additional people to sign up. If everyone does actually turn up, there could be in excess of a million people, UFO fanatics, and alien fans charging at the base.
With such large numbers of people in the area, what is the Air Force going to do? While a peaceful resolution is obviously going to be the first goal, talking doesn’t seem to affect any of these guys, who have their hearts set on uncovering the truth about Area 51. The next step would be lethal force – is the US government really going to mow down over a million people in cold blood?
These warnings, while they are serious, don’t have much to stand on. The government opening fire at a crowd of people of that size would be unheard of and no other country or government would find it acceptable. These empty threats of military waiting and defending the base doesn’t seem to have phased any of the participants either.
The 20th September remains firm as the date for the infiltration. If it does actually go ahead, the truth may finally be uncovered by these fans and conspiracy theorists. Who knows, maybe the rumors and myths are actually true and have been all along. Perhaps we’ll all find out what really lies within the ever mysterious, Area 51.
