Over the weekend a Facebook event page to raid Area 51 has had over 400,000 people signing up. This is because of the belief that aliens or alien technology are held there. But the Air Force is prepared.

“[Area 51] is an open training range for the US Air Force, and we would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area where we train American armed forces,” McAndrews said. “The US Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets.”

    This looks like a honeypot to get a whole bunch of people for alien experimentation. They might all just disappear like the Bermuda Triangle. I’m sure the Air Force is ready for a round-up operation like that, in the interests of better intergalactic relations, of course.

    Great story Andrew.

    The climate and terrain will stop such an unorganized mass, well before the Air Force ever needs to step in.

    Irony when the military is called to rescue these people from the desert.

    This is messed up. Whoever thought it would be cute to charge Area 51 with a flash mob might end up getting a lot of people killed.

      I wonder if they know how much buffer space there is between the boundary fence and the building complexes. They would have to cross a lot of barren land.
