The Pentagon Has Plan For Zombie Apocalypse

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.”
