More than 400,000 people have joined a Facebook event page calling for storming Area 51, with many more indicating interest. The proposed event is scheduled for Sept. 20.
The Washington Post on Friday asked how officials will deal with anyone showing up for the event. Air Force spokeswoman Laura McAndrews declined to elaborate on specific details of the military’s plans.However, she did issue a warning.
“[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.”
Art Bell’s replacement Heather Wade floated the Area 51 raid before she abruptly quit her show.. before his death, Art Bell actually said she should not go through with it.
This newest petition is believed to have begun as a gag.. or was it a final homage to Bell?
Either way.. guns are at the ready for any invasion of alien. Or human.
