You browse the headline right, The Government has produced an agenda for how to proceed within the zombie apocalypse. We&aposll let it rest your decision regardless of whether you now feel safer, or a great deal less safe.
Unsurprisingly, this isn&apost something the united states military establishment is keen to speak about, but Foreign Policy Magazine dug in the document, which helpfully informs us, "Because zombies pose a menace to all non-zombie human existence, [Proper Command] will be ready to preserve the sanctity of human existence and conduct operations meant for any population — including traditional adversaries."
CONOP 8888, because the document is famous, is dated April 30, 2011, not 29 days earlier (or 4 weeks later for instance). The authors want to make sure us the document isn’t a joke, but neither is it entirely serious, saying, “The hyperbole involved with writing a &aposzombie survival plan&apos really provided a really helpful and efficient training tool.”
"Planners … recognized that training examples for plans must accommodate the political fallout occurring if everyone mistakenly believes that the imaginary training scenario is really a genuine plan," the authors authored, adding: "Instead of risk this kind of outcome by teaching our augmentees while using imaginary &aposTunisia&apos or &aposNigeria&apos scenarios used at [Joint Combined Warfighting School], we elected to utilize a completely-impossible scenario that may not be mistaken for any real plan."
It&aposs encouraging the people able to developing a real apocalypse haven&apost made the grave mistake of moving from believing in WMD to Zombies of Mass Destruction. Sadly, we believe they might be misjudging just what people will believe.
The program involves various amounts of threat, including one where zombie-ism happens to be highly transmissible, with low human immunity. Disappointingly, it doesn’t include any suggestions regarding how to tackle Zombie Financial aspects, which appears a rather more realistic threat. It will however, warn of 𠇌hicken Zombies”, that are referred to as “the only proven type of zombies that really exists” when aged hens are incompletely euthanized and dig their way from their graves.
Government planners are more creative than Hollywood scriptwriters, it appears, using the the subtypes of zombies they focus on including vegetarians, “zombie existence forms via any cause but pose no direct threat to humans simply because they only eat plant existence”. Symbiant-Caused Zombies by will also be out there, much like evil magic zombies, compared presumably to zombies created through good magic and zombies from space.
Foreign Policy quotes one defense official joking “I hope we&aposve invested an identical degree of rigor against dragon egg hatching contingencies.”
Regrettably, as the world&aposs most effective military is free of charge to create plans against vampires, werewolves or Cthulu there’s one factor by which we’re greatly by ourselves. Just a week ago the united states House of Representatives passed an amendment that clearly bars the Dod from the actions to organize for that results of Anthropogenic Climatic Change, whether conflicts over more and more rare water sources or flooding of low laying military bases.
