The Pentagon Has Plan For Zombie Apocalypse

Everyone thought I was crazy at my last job because I had a bug-out bag in the event of the apocalypse, but who’s crazy now, huh?? The Pentagon revealed that it actually has its own zombie apocalypse plan in case “The Walking Dead” happens because in doesn’t hurt to be prepared, right?

According to CNN, the Department of Defense has a document that details the U.S. military’s plan in the event of a zombie uprising. (Read the unclassified document designated “CONOP 8888” in full here; a spokeswoman for the U.S. Strategic Command stressed the “[training] document is not a U.S. Strategic Command plan.”)

Don’t worry, unlike in the movies and shows, the plan lays out the preferred kill method as the headshot. It also details necessary steps towards public awareness, military contingencies, reconnaissance, the environment, and civilian authority.

“The only assumed way to effectively cause casualties to the zombie ranks by tactical force is the concentration of all firepower to the head, specifically the brain,” according to the plan. “The only way to ensure a zombie is ‘dead’ is to burn the zombie corpse.”

This might sound ridiculous to some but when it comes down to it, there is no reason to not be prepared for everything. Biological weapons are a real thing and are more dangerous every day as science because more advanced.

However, As CNN reports, the document claims:

“Training examples for plans must accommodate the political fallout that occurs if the general public mistakenly believes that a fictional training scenario is actually a real plan. … Rather than risk such an outcome by teaching our augmentees using the fictional ‘Tunisia’ or ‘Nigeria’ scenarios used at (Joint Combined Warfighting School), we elected to use a completely impossible scenario that could never be mistaken as a real plan.”

“The Walking Dead” creator, Robert Kirkman and writer Jay Bonansinga announced their plans to collaborate once more on another four-part book series focusing on TWD universe.

The first novel, titled “The Walking Dead: Descent,” will focus on recurring comic book character Lilly Caul as she returns to the doomed town after the Governor’s assault on the prison.

“There is quite a bit of unexplored territory left in the “Walking Dead” universe and I think people are going to love what Jay brings to this world in this medium,” Kirkman told entertainment Weekly.

The first book of the expanded post-apocalyptic horror series will be released on Oct. 14.

We can all sigh with relief as AMC has officially announced the premiere dates for “Mad Men” and “Better Call Saul.” Unfortunately, “Mad Men” is heading into its final season but at least we have the series premiere of the “Breaking Bad” spinoff to keep us whole.

In June, AMC will premiere of “Halt and Catch Fire,” which captures the rise of the PC era in the early 1980s, during which an unlikely trio – a visionary, an engineer and a prodigy – take staggering personal and professional risks in the race to build a computer that will change the world. Later in the summer will bring the season four roll-out of the AMC western “Hell on Wheels,” which grew to an average audience of 3.3 million viewers in its move to Saturday nights in 2013.

On the unscripted side, “Game of Arms,” will premiere on Tuesday, February 25 at 10PM, followed by May launches of the third season of “Small Town Security” and second season of “Freakshow.” The network also announced the season five pick-up of “The Talking Dead.”
