An audacious online plan to storm Area 51 in search of aliens has become such a viral sensation that the United States Air Force has issued a stern warning to any individuals hoping to take part in the siege. Created as a Facebook event last week, the concept behind 'Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All of Us' captured the imagination of the public and sparked largely derisive headlines around the world. Nonetheless, over the course of just a few days, the number of people pledging to take part in the gathering grew exponentially to the point that, as of now, more than 1 million people say that they will be going to Area 51 on September 20th.
Considering that anyone in the world can simply click a button and indicate that they, too, will be storming Area 51, an overwhelming number of purported participants in the raid are almost certainly not really going to be heading out to the desert in two months. It's also a safe bet that they see the concept for what it was intended to be: a joke. Be that as it may, numerous media outlets have treated the story as if hundreds-of-thousands of UFO enthusiasts genuinely intended to force their way onto the facility long-suspected of housing some kind of hidden ET secrets.
In response to the somewhat surprising frenzy surrounding the 'Storm Area 51' idea and perhaps in the hopes of dissuading any foolhardy individuals who might take the concept seriously, the United States Air Force issued a statement about the matter this past weekend.
