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 area 51 in morocco we will make a green march 2 The Green March was a strategic mass demonstration in November 1975, coordinated by the Moroccan government, to force Spain to hand over the disputed, autonomous semi-metropolitan province of Spanish Sahara to Morocco. The demonstration of some 350,000 Moroccans advanced several kilometres into the Western Sahara territory, escorted by nearly 20,000 Moroccan troops

  • Most of the base is underground anyway.....and the minute they unleashed one of those sound wave weapons on the crowd or a microwave weapon that starts cooking the crowds insides,they would leave there SO FAST!.....not to mention all of the hidden land mines,drones and other goodies.....and that's just for starters...a bunch of dudes that live in their moms basement,hopped up on Red Bulls wouldn't stand a chance.

  • Correct answer would be if the U.S military shot unarmed civilians and to the extent of the death toll the U.S government would be reformed if not being remade as the U.N would stand in and other countries would aswell due to you dont shoot your own people ... but then again Americans like killing each other
