313K join group pledging to storm Area 51 to search for aliens

The event, "Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All of Us", is scheduled for September 20 and is an "X-Files" fan's dream come true.

Before reaching the facility, however, the group is set to meet at the Area 51 Alien Center nearby.

If you'll be in Nevada on September 20, there's a Facebook event that may pique your interest.

Noticeably, there were many tweets that hilariously described what people will find when they storm inside Area 51.

The Facebook event, of course, is just a joke and the organizers really have no intention of attacking Area 51.

Located in Nevada, Area 51 has long fuelled conspiracy theories and rumors about aliens and UFOs. "Lets see them aliens", the post further reads.

Rights groups have claimed that tens of thousands have died in the Philippine government's drug war. The resolution on the Philippines , led by Iceland, was adopted by the U.N.

The group plans to do a "Naruto Run" - arms back, head forward, and very, very fast - in a nod to the popular anime.

When we checked in Facebook, a few hours ago, we noticed at least ten more pages, carrying similar names, urging people to raid Area 51. For years there have been rumors that the base is holding aliens and UFOs.

According to the event's hosts (a page that posts memes and someone who streams video games on Twitch), the operation will involve running supernaturally fast - faster than the guards' bullets can fly - but will be worth it to "see them aliens".

Famous machines developed there include the U-2 spy plane, SR-71 Blackbird, and the F-117A Nighthawk stealth fighter.

Many conspiracy theorists claim the base has been used to research an alleged crashed alien spacecraft at Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947. Though in 2013 the U.S. government acknowledged the existence of the place as a military site, the extraterrestrial theories are yet to be proven or disproven.
