Military Responds to People Planning to Raid Area 51

As a viral campaign to storm the secret military base “Area 51” is picking up support across the country, the United States Air Force is warning potential curiosity seekers to stay away from the facility.

In an official statement, Air Force spokesperson Laura McAndrews warned that

“[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.”

She also seemed to threaten any would-be invaders, saying that

The US Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets.”

However, she did not elaborate on exactly how the military would handle the internet trolls that might appear at their gates this September.

After the event picked up national media publicity, the organizer of the event got spooked and made a post saying that it was all a joke.

Still, his joke may have taken on a life of its own, as it seems that there are a lot of people excited about the idea, and many of them are promising to go anyway.

It is unclear how many people are seriously planning on showing up, and how many are just trolling, but there is no doubt that guards on duty at the facility will be working overtime on September 20th.

It has been reported that the site has been used for nuclear weapons testing on hundreds of occasions and is a part of the Nevada National Security Site.

Area 51 has been rumored to be a facility where the US government keeps alien technology, but there has been a renewed interest in the military base after the release of the recent Netflix documentary film, Bob Lazar: Area 51 & Flying Saucers.

Lazar has made a statement warning his supporters to stay home on September 20. Lazar says that the site is not even at Area 51 proper, but another facility nearby, that probably doesn’t even house the same technology anymore. Lazar also says that he fears that someone could be shot for trying to enter the base without authorization.

“I do not support this ‘movement’. The last time someone tried to get in to Area 51 he was shot. This is not the way to go about trying to get more information. What is good, is the interest in the subject – the science and technology. That is what would immediately change the world we live in,” Lazar said in his statement.
