Fun and games on Facebook could have critical consequences for the foolish. That was the message delivered by the US Air Force, who’ve responded to a Facebook’s group’s efforts to have 450,000 individuals storm a top-secret military base.
Conspiracy theorists have at all times believed that Area 51 in Nevada holds information about extra-terrestrial activities on our planet, possibly together with actual alien remains and aircraft. That perception spawned a Facebook group suggesting that a wave of humanity could overwhelm the defenses on the base and discover the truth.
More significant than 400,000 individuals have joined a Facebook event page calling for storming Area 51, with much more indicating interest. The proposed event is scheduled for Sept. 20.
“We are going to all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry,” the occasion description reads. “If we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Let’s see them, aliens.”
Naruto Run refers back to the unique running style of the protagonist Naruto Uzumaki within the Japanese anime series Naruto, the place he’s often depicted sprinting with his hands behind him to decrease wind resistance.
The Washington Post on Friday requested 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.
Nonetheless, she did issue a warning.
“[Area 51] is open training range for the US Air Force, and we’d discourage anyone from attempting to come into the area where we practice American armed forces,” McAndrews mentioned. “The US Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets.”
