What Happens If One Million People Actually Stormed Area 51?

If you happened to wander into the Nevada desert and stumbled upon the secret U.S. military base, Area 51, you'd quickly be arrested, killed, or maybe even abducted by aliens. But what if you happened to organize one million other people through social media to storm Area 51? They can't stop us all right? Or can they? And if you did manage to get into the base, what would you see?

  • If 1.5 million people storm Area 51 you know what happens? A quarter of humanity gets erased... trust me, it’s a bad idea, your life’s not worth risking just to see aliens or UFO’s and possibly cause an alien invasion that would erase half of humanity. Just live the life that you are proud to have and don’t do anything stupid, now you can call me a nerd or a loser all you want but I am not going to cause an alien invasion, who’s with me? No one? Ok lol 😢

  • If really they are aliens in that place, its mean that is worth to discover the truth, because this knowledge is for all people not only for army. The plan of attack will fail if army earlier conduct nuclear test on this area and sacrifice one base to hide truth (the final solution). They can also move ufo evidences earlier to another base for e.g. Dulce (it is easy way because they know date of attack). If you really want to go into that base, every volunteer should have got own private drone to focus army fire to drones not on people. Also if school go into base soldiers can't shoot children, because it is barbarian, or they are barbarian... think about consequences. I wonder why president of the USA did not speak on this matter, and order to open the door for any guests for one day??? It is simple and will prevent tragedy (open door day). But maybe he have not sufficient power to order Majestic 12 (or their followers)? In my opinion in the day 09.20 Majestic 12 will find peacefully solution, because they are smart, very smart, and have got a lot of money and big support from another bases... maybe this area will be empty to that day. Who knows?

  • Despite the danger crimes against humanity go on every day children, women and men being used for experiment and worse. Eisenhower though about marching the 5th army onto area 51as the aliens are having a field day doing what ever they want with humanity and this needs to be stopped as even the president is not allowed in to see what is going on.
