What Happens If One Million People Actually Stormed Area 51?

  • Published on Jul 18, 2019
  • If you happened to wander into the Nevada desert and stumbled upon the secret U.S. military base, Area 51, you'd quickly be arrested, killed, or maybe even abducted by aliens. But what if you happened to organize one million other people through social media to storm Area 51? They can't stop us all right? Or can they? And if you did manage to get into the base, what would you see?

    If they are going to use lethal force, I'm not blaming them. Attack a military base, and you have to deal with a military answer. But, in all honesty, it won't happen.nothing will happen as no one will show up

    It’s simple. I am going to build a sky base with a water source at the top flowing down in order for me and my friends to get up and down. I will take another bucket so I can do the same when I’ve reached the top of the main area of the base. I think that it’ll take about 15 stacks of dirt and cobble. I am bringing melons for a food source as they’re easily renewable and only require one space to grow.

    Am I the only one who wants to see this happen? I mean from a morbid standpoint of IF you got 1 million people to do this I want to see it LIVE STREAMED. Either they gonna have a ton of NON Lethal weapons surrounding it OR it will be a live fire exercise and it is gonna make the mass shootings look like child's play.

      One Million people. Really? You think they would just shot and kill one Million civilians. That would probably be the beginning of a Civil War. I honestly can't imagine them doing that.
      Which is why this question is so interesting.

    What if isn't wrong, if you are stupid enough to try and "Naruto run" to storm the base.

    Here is the answer. Save time. Area 51 is padded by 100s of miles of desert all around.
    So any idiot would realize you can’t just walk in. A million people would just take hours of hiking.
    This is stupid. Nothing would happen. Most people would turn back.
