US military warns against 'Storm Area 51' stunt

1 million social media users who have pledged to storm the secretive base have been warned against doing so.
The questionable venture, which is scheduled for September 20th at 3am, will see attendees meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center in Amargosa Valley, Nevada before moving on to the base itself en masse.

Entitled 'Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All of Us', the ill-advised plan, which aims to find evidence of aliens at the base, was first posted up on Facebook by the user 'SmyleeKun'.

Last week we reported that 185,000 people had signed up, but this has since risen to over 1 million.

Now the US Air Force itself has issued a stark warning to those thinking of attending.

"[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," said spokesperson Laura McAndrews.

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

Exactly what this will mean for those who do happen to turn up on the day however remains unclear.

Update: Creator of 'Storm Area 51' comes forward

Sorry, I'm not one of those panicking or getting stressed by media. I can tell you right now that nothing will happen. Remind me to remind you when time is good.†

If you visit poor Rachel's website, looks like any plans they had for this turning out well are done, and they are really scared of people coming. You can see them express it themselves:†http://www.rachel-nevada.com/ I've actually been there years ago on an Area 51 trip myself, and it is such an unbelievably tiny community, and when I went there with none of this popularity back in 2013 or 2014, the locals already had signs out with "Private Property" and "No Tresspassing" everywhere. I hope they do okay and that most of this is just hype.

There will be a couple of morons showing up and getting sent home to their mother s basement with a 300 dollar fine or something. There wont be a storming of any kind.

The minimum fine is over $600 (or at least was in 2013). Here's my personal copy: †

So like I said months ago, the "millions" were about 75 stoners, party goers and attention seekers that did it "for the lulz of being on TV". So no national threat, no bullets were fired. I think we all can say that panicking isn't worth it.†

And it seems only about 100 showed up.†https://heavy.com/news/2019/09/area-51-raid-how-many-showed-up/†The rest came for the alien festival.
