A 20-year-old man who created a joke meme on Facebook called “Storm Area 51” to “see them aliens” now fears mass slaughter as nearly 2 million people sign up to raid the Air Force property, overwhelming the training facility’s security contingent. Are all these people in on the joke, or will they really show up and “Naruto run” onto the base in order to dodge the bullets?
President Trump deploys a carrier strike group and bomber task force to the Middle East in response to undisclosed “escalatory” actions by Iran. National Security Advisor John Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo say the U.S. will punish the Iranian regime with “unrelenting force” for hostile actions by proxy groups they support, like Hezbollah. Are we on the cusp of war or is this the only way to prevent a fight with a “dominance-based society” like the Islamic Republic of Iran?
