Do you think that people are actually going to storm Area 51?

Post by James »

I'm sure that everyone has heard by now, that the Facebook group that stated as a joke seems to actually have a legit following and people are going to show up. A few news stations covered that all of the hotels nearest to Area 51 are booked and are getting hundreds of calls a day around the week of September that this even is supposed to happen.

Do you think people are actually going to try to storm area 51? If so, what do you think is going to happen to them?

Personally, I think it's highly plausible that there are people who would try it, but imagining quite that many people going is a bit hard to believe. What will happen to them though, or my guess, is being arrested for being on government land?

hehehe, who knows, maybe there'll be actual UFO's abducting them and erasing the evidence like that one X files episode when people actually got onto the secret military base.
of course the UFO was a US government aircraft reverse engineered from alien technology... but still lol.

I feel as though people would go, but no one would actually rush Naruto-style unless they want to be shot at.. and I'm pretty sure they're going to fire into the skies and if that doesn't intimidate anyone, they'd start shooting at civilians. I think they're within their rights to do so after warning shots that are ignored.

I feel people won't do that. They know the area is highly restricted and if they storm they will be surely shot down. What ever the Government is hiding will one day come to light automatically.

Do you really believe that?

There could be tons of things that are classified that we don't know or never will know about. When Bush was still the president, I'm sure a lot of shady things went on behind the scenes for example.

I have no doubt there's a lot of things the government is hiding, but it's nice to believe that won't always be the case. Sadly, though, I think it's a necessity for the government to avoid sharing certain things... some things might cause mass panic, after all.

I suspect a small number of people will show up, but not enough to be a proper 'storming'. It'll probably just be a few dozen crazies who get there and immediately wonder why they even bothered :P .

It's not unlike these things never happen. There was a point where a bunch of counter-culture folks tried to levitate the pentagon.

In the end, 75 people went. I'd say that's "a few dozen".

I called it :P !
