If Area 51 has been De-Classified, why all the security measures?

I understand its a top secret military installation, but seriously whats the need for the deadly force signs and the Camo Dudes in truck and Pave Low helicopters circling you if you go close?

It's a smokescreen covering up something else. there's no aliens, but it's another cover-up for sure. the alien thing is to distract us from the real things going on out there.

It's a top secret military installation that whilst its existence may now be open knowledge (just like it was when the place didn't exist according to the US military) what goes on there is pretty heavily classified... More

"whats the need for the deadly force signs and the Camo Dudes in truck and Pave Low helicopters circling you if you go close?" You said it yourself, "It's a top-secret military installation." That's the need for deadly force.

Area 51 has not been declassified. It is still an active military site. Civillians have no need or reason to be on the installation and lethal force can be applied to enforce security if needed, just as it can be on all military bases.

I only find it strange that a government of the people has the right to shoot "the people" if they enter certain areas without just cause on their part. Honestly who pays for the upkeep of the area? The citizens of the U.S., but we haven't the right to enter areas we own. What a load. Aside from that the area is... More

I don't see what all the hype is about with area 51. It's a top secret base..... big deal. It's not the only one. There are some things the military is developing, testing, and using at these places that they don't need or want the wrong people discovering. And if that means having to use deadly force to keep those... More

It actually has not been de-classified. Just because people know about it, doesn't actually mean that they admit it is there. Besides it isn't the only one out there. Just the biggest, maybe. As for the Security and Helicopters and shoot on sight signs. The instalation has been deemd vital to the national security of... More

becuase not all of it is declassified. If you have ever been on a tour there its a joke about all you get to see are the inside of some very small building and the cafeteria alot of the buildings and grounds are off limits.

accordingly, our government has several 'area areas' and all are off limits to everyone.if you were roused out by a team, feel lucky, as if you try to drive or walk into such a place, they can, without reason or warning, shoot you on sight.

Lemme see now. It is no secret that we have nuclear weapons. Does that mean that I should be allowed unaccompanied access should I choose to go pet one?
