Storm Area 51! Let’s See Them Aliens! Etc!

Apparently today’s the day – 20 September… and by all indications, people are actually boarding planes and heading to Nevada to ‘see them aliens’! Events are being booked by various interested parties and interest appears to be at an all-time high – there’s even a music festival being organized – despite thinly-coated ‘soft’ warnings from the US military that intruders will be met with ‘deadly force’!

As a matter of fact, just a few days ago, a couple of European tourists were busted three miles deep into Area 51, and although they lived – being arraigned and convicted in what seems like record time before being deported – it’s doubtful they’ll ever be allowed back into the US again.

Hard as it may be to conceive, some people seem to think camping out on a very well-defended secret military installation – and actually considering storming it in an attempt to uncover its secrets – is a great idea, or that there will be an afterwards for them… But I suppose they’re counting on weight of numbers to help with that… “they can’t stop all of us” the organizers said. The people who first crossed no-mans land in East Berlin in 1989 and started hammering away at the Wall faced the same dilemma – and that was far more visibly fortified and guarded than Area 51…

In honor of this extraordinary event, I wrote a short story “The Storming Of Area 51” – which you can read in “See Them Aliens”, a collection of science fiction conjecture about what attendees would discover at Area 51 if they had managed to get inside!


Personally I think there’s a little truth to all sides of the argument around Area 51 – after all, you don’t vehemently claim a place doesn’t exist for 50 years – despite your own nation’s foreign enemies already knowing about it and its location right through the Cold War – for nothing!

Where there’s smoke, it’s usually caused by fire!

Let’s see them aliens – if you can find ’em! 😉
