Over 1 Million People sign up to storm Area 51...USAF warns against it!

via Military.com
More than 1 million people have signed up to storm the U.S. Air Force's clandestine base in Nevada, commonly known as Area 51, this September in hopes of seeing "them aliens," but the service is cautioning individuals against participating.

The viral Facebook event, "Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All of Us," 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 Air Force is trying to discourage the alien hunters.

"The United States Air Force is aware of the Facebook post," service spokeswoman Laura Mcandrews told Military.com in an email Monday. "The Nevada Test and Training Range is an area where the Air Force tests and trains combat aircraft. As a matter of practice, we do not discuss specific security measures, but any attempt to illegally access military installations or military training areas is dangerous."

This is a somewhat funny story, but mark my words.  The next flashpoint (in the short term) for the US military will be force protection both at home and at our overseas bases.  The issues....

Massive training ranges.

Lack of spending on installation security.

Too few troops dedicated to the task.

We're basically asking for a terrible event to happen.  I won't even get into the ease of getting on base, but you get the picture.
