Military personnel have already sought to remind people that Area 51 is a firing range, implying attendees could be met with bullets. Air Force spokeswoman Laura McAndrews said: “Area 51 is an open training range for the US Air Force, and we would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area where we train American armed forces. “The US Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets”. Thornton TD Barnes spent time protecting Area 51 in the late 60s and 70s, and also believes the army would treat any potential invasion as a terrorist attack and shoot on sight.
Mr Barnes wrote in an opinion piece for Fox News: “First and foremost, what these people signed up for is not merely an act of trespass, it could well wind up being treated as terrorism. “In fact, how do those participating know who is behind this plan? How do they even know that the organisers are not connected to ISIS or some other adversary or enemy using them to disrupt or penetrate the national security of the United States?” “In the unlikely event that any of those storming the Area 51 restricted area survive the military activity and ground hazards and actually make it to Area 51, they can expect detection by all sorts of sensors and cameras.
