The U.S. Air Force has responded to the 1.3 million people who have signed on to raid Area 51 in search of aliens as part of an internet joke that has gone viral. The fake plan to raid Area 51 started with a Facebook event and has inspired thousands of alien-related memes.

“Any attempt to illegally access the area is highly discouraged,” an Air Force spokesperson told NPR in a Monday statement, along with several other media outlets including USA Today and The New York Times. The Air Force did not respond to a request for comment by TIME at the time of publication.

"[Area 51] is an open training range for the U.S. Air Force, and we would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area where we train American armed forces," a spokeswoman told The Washington Post. "The U.S. Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets."

The Facebook event “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All Of Us,” was started as an internet joke to raid Area 51 on September 20 in search of aliens.

“If we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Lets see them aliens,” the event description reads. 1.3 million people have signed on to attend so far, and the internet memes have taken over social feeds around the world.

I think the US military will deploy alien military units to stop the invasion.

I think if the air force wishes to receive funding they need to remeber who is footing their bills. That aside, this is a dumb idea.

This is getting really big. Big Social Media sites are passing the word along and gathering a mass following.
Anyways..




I love this one.

I guess it does answer that age old question, " Would the US military fire on US citizens?"

Yup.

Well, better get your motel reservations in right away.

Oh, wait......

There aren't any.
And it's 100 degrees (F) out.
No shade
Umm, no bus service
No gas stations
No Porta Potties
25 miles walk to the base itself from the highway
It's a federal crime to enter the base
and.....
use of lethal force authorized

REALLY good idea.

US citizens storming a military base are what we used to call soft targets.

Unless you are just fine with citizens committing a felony.

Oh wait... of course you are.

The term " fish in a barrel " comes to mind.

Some guy : hey, let's invade a top secret, highly protected military facility where the use of deadly force is authorized to stop intruders.

The internet : Cool !

Morons.

Like any government unit, they'll probably deploy less lethal if it actually came to anyone getting close(before shooting).
Water canons, popping flash bangs like the 4th of july, tear gas, that noise thing that makes you have to take a crap(I'm hoping for that one).

While the military is taking it seriously, i'm sure they aren't wasting the opportunity for a bit of "fun" at these idiots expense.

I used to work in a place where if I did not recognize the person walking towards me down the tunnel it was my duty to shoot until I was sure that they were dead and then make the phone call.

I'm not sure the interwebz normies understand...

The effort is probably secretly backed by China and Russia.

I know if I was standing guard I would put one of those "Noodle" people that you see at car dealerships on a remote controlled vehicle and drive it towards the crowd in a threatening manner. That would mess with their heads. I still remember having fun with laser dots when I was in the Marines. SO many people got freaked out by the simplest of things.

I can't believe this hasn't been shut down yet.
Social media sites have rules against encouraging a crime.
