Post #3: Area 51 and Alien Hunters

Area 51 has had spurred conspiracy theories as an unidentified flying object and alien holding site for decades. Needless to say, it is thought that Area 51 holds government secrets about aliens, even after the CIA published documents confirming the area as a test base. Since this confirmation, the US government has spent 22 million dollars researching UFOs. In June of 2019, US senators were briefed on UFO encounters that the US Navy confirmed seeing. 
Since this incident, a “joke” Facebook event, calling users to meet at Area 51, has blown up in the past month. “If we Naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets,” the page says. The situation has gone far beyond the intended purpose that the US Air Force was made aware of the situation. "[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," a spokeswoman told The Washington Post (CNN, 2019). Aliens or not, Area 51 will stay a mystery and is willing to stay a mystery by any means necessary.
As the picture explains, I believe that Area 51 should have announced they were an Air Force testing base 60 years ago. To keep everything secretive and tightly secure for years, definitely makes people suspicious. To counteract conspiracies and stop the population from wandering what goes on in the base, their representative should really sit down and talk about why they did not announce Area 51's true purpose years ago. Until then, it is a very suspicious place where any weapon or developed UFO could be created and tested.

  1. I am one for a good meme but i am tariffed of what the us gov could do to people trying to raid an air force bace, I think they keep the cloud of secrecy around aria 51 mostly because the alternative would make it more difficult for the R&D to test there new technology, if something goes wrong and a civilian gets hurt that going to be a lot more truble then just saying "see this place, ya don't step any were near it plz". that just me however (I hope i make sense)
