Storming area 51: "let's see them aliens!"

Storming area 51:

As more than a million people on Facebook say they're attending a joke event to "storm Area 51," the US military has responded to the plans - just in case they actually do.

The event has all the makings of a ludicrous Internet joke, right?

"P.S. Hello.U.S. government, this is a joke, and I do not actually intend to go ahead with this plan".

"The United States Air Force is aware of the Facebook post", service spokeswoman Laura Mcandrews told in an email Monday.

The Air Force said in a statement to the Washington Post that it discourages people who would try to enter Area 51, an open training range. The military stands ready, reports the spokesperson for the Air Force. The Facebook event still has a planned date of September 20, and while maybe there are some real UFO enthusiasts out there viewing this as a serious thing, the majority of the internet is just along for the memes. The event-goers have a suspicion that the base harbours aliens and they've devised a pretty neat plan to get to them.The high-security area has been the subject of much controversy. While numerous people in the comments section of the event are having fun, there are more than a few extraterrestrial fans who are taking this very seriously.

Thanks to the various factors that come into play with Area 51 memes, there is a rich depth to them.

In excess of 90 individuals had been safeguarded in 11 areas, however there were no reports of fatalities related to the weather. Edwards says he's "extremely grateful" Barry did not produce the devastating floods that forecasters predicted.

The basic idea is that the Kyles form the front line, if we feed them enough psilocybin and monster energy and say that anyone in camouflage is their stepdad, and the entire base is made of drywall then they will go berserk and become an impenetrable wall.

Imagine throngs of people who have never met each other assembling in mid-September before dawn in a Nevada desert town to rush the entrance of Area 51 in search of aliens. "Let's see them aliens [sic]".

"I just thought it would be a amusing idea for the meme page", Val said via Facebook Messenger. In 2017, for example, USA military personnel opened fire on a man who attempted to break into a Royal Air Force base in Suffolk, UK. Myth busted? Well, yes, if you happen to ignore the Pentagon confirming the existence of a $22 million government program to analyse "anomalous aerospace threats" in 2017.

At some point over the last week, "Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All of Us" transformed from a viral prank into a national phenomenon.

Though the facility is not publicly accessible, the area around Area 51 is a popular tourist destination, sprinkled with alien-themed motels, museums and restaurants.
