U.S. Military Warns Those Planning to Storm Area 51: We Have Guns

The U.S. Air Force has now offered a word of caution to the more than a million people who said they would be attending the Facebook event “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us” in September: “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,” spokeswoman Laura McAndrews told The Washington Post. “The U.S. Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets.”

The viral event calls for alien enthusiasts to show up outside the base Sept. 20 and break through its barriers by “naruto running,” or weaving like a ninja to evade lethal force. This technique, group members say, will help bypass base security and any protective measures.

The “Naruto run” is a reference to a Japanese manga-inspired running style featuring arms outstretched backwards and heads forward. It is inspired by the running style of Naruto Uzumaki – title character in the Japanese anime series Naruto.  

A pinned post from one of the organizers of the event, Jackson Barnes, also reiterates the fact that this upcoming shindig is all in jest.

“P.S. Hello U.S. government, this is a joke, and I do not actually intend to go ahead with this plan. I just thought it would be funny and get me some thumbsy uppies on the internet. I’m not responsible if people decide to actually storm area 51.”

Conspiracy theorists have long believed the US government holds secret information about aliens and UFOs at Area 51 and believe it is used to stow captured UFOs or alien remains and technology. But the US government categorically denies the existence of such objects.

The base, which has been the focus of conspiracy theories for decades, was only formally recognised as a military base in 2013 after a 2005 Freedom of Information Act request. 

The perimeter of the base is constantly patrolled by armed security guards and CCTV and motion-sensor cameras are also in use – with signs around the base warning intruders could face “deadly force”.
