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

It's an internet meme. I think 90% of people understand that this is just a meme, wishful thinking or making fun of the government, whatever it is I believe that if you're that stupid to believe this is real you deserve to get shot. Now, internet has done many things like this before, hundreds, just for the lulz.á

I think that the Storm Area 51 movement has been pretty good at making URS Corp **** its collective pants.á They simply couldn't contain 185,000 people with or without lethal force, using their present security force.

lol, one machine gun burst in front of them, and they will be running for their lives creating stampede, and killing hundreds themselves, this is not the crowd that would keep walking under fire.á

If anyone thought they could storm Area 51 they are asking for a deathwish.

People will show up, probably just to see if other people show up. Will they actually storm the base? i highly doubt it, though there will be a few that feel they need to impress those watching and get themselves detained or possibly arrested. Storm a military base, that's funny. What's next, storm the Pentagon?
