Jimmy - I appreciate you are seeking a potential response to a hypothetical scenario and you're discouraging others from replying with limiting
questions or 'can't happen - won't happen' rejoinders.
Nevertheless your premise is fallacious and these responders merely are expressing their own frustrations with it: terrorists would not gain the
political leverage or accomplish any objectives by attacking A51 - they simply would not expend the resources nor take the risks. To do so would be
ludicrous and even terrorists are not THAT stupid.
Further the target site is hardened and inaccessible, crawling with well-armed defenders, tons of sophisticated surveillance and recording equipment,
and any caught terrorists will likely disappear into the bowels of the facility forever (as opposed to meeting virgins in heavan - and they know it).
Also the US gov't goes to great lengths to keep as much of the facility shielded and secret - despite legions of UFOlogists and others prying into
every crevice and loophole (virtual and otherwise) they can find.
Such an exercise in folly is wrought with danger and little/no benefits. It would be a very expensive and difficult mission - perhaps impossible.
Who would fund and partake in such a foolish expedition. It would be much smarter, cheaper, and more effective to "terrorize" the public in an
office building, transportaion center, or utility infrastructure.
OK - so lets assume there are a few idiots so dumb and so pointless that they try such a ridiculous thing. To answer your question then: the US
response would be lethal, immediate, and probably clandestine to the extreme. The most effective and simplest response to a rat sneaking into a black
box would be to simply slam the door shut on them, trapping them inside ad infinitum. End of story.
Now - you're a bright kid: Inquisitive, creative. Why not channel your energies into more productive and realistic curiosities as can be found
throughout ATS and elsewhere. We could use a perspective such as yours - start with the many A51 threads already going strong with genuine enigmas of
a wide variety.
Lend your clarity and insight to ATS and thanks for your post ---> and keep looking up!
