The number now stands at over one million.
That’s over one million people who have RSVP’d to an even on Facebook called Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop Us All. The idea is simple: If a large enough congregation amasses at the mythical air base in the Nevada desert, no amount of military security could stop them from getting a look at whatever mysterious things they’re keeping out there. And, of course, there is the undercurrent of truth there, given that our tax dollars are what fuels the clandestine research that occurs near Groom Lake.
But as the movement balloons, there are some concerns about the lengths to which some interested parties will go. That’s they the Air Force has issued a stern warning to would-be attendees stating, in no uncertain terms, that security at the base is authorized to use whatever force is necessary to protect their assets.
And they aren’t the only ones trying to keep tourists from traipsing about either, with one former worker from the base claiming that there’s nothing to see out there anyway.

First and foremost, what these people signed up for is not merely an act of trespass, it could well wind up being treated as terrorism. In fact, how do those participating know who is behind this plan? How do they even know that the organizers are not connected to ISIS or some other adversary or enemy using them to disrupt or penetrate the national security of the United States?
There is no question that this is a conspiracy, even if it is said to be tongue-in-cheek, to penetrate a highly classified government installation. Those conspiring to “storm” or overrun the Area 51 installation should be concerned about the legal aspects, the risk of being liable for the actions of their co-conspirators. What if someone is hurt during this unlawful activity? All the co-conspirators could well be held responsible for the actions of one.
Then, as if to put an exclamation point on the entire op-ed…
There are no and have never been aliens or extraterrestrial craft at Area 51, period!
The proposed “raid” of Area 51 is scheduled for September 20th.
