Zombies have certainly become a hit topic of discussion as several movies and television shows glorify survivors and send imaginations reeling regarding the hypothetical reality. As it turns out, the government has even entertained the idea as a government document has been released showing that plans for such an occasion have been long in the making.
The document is called CONOP 8888 – or the Counter-Zombie Dominance – and was recently released by Foreign Policy magazine. CONOP 8888 details the military protocols for dealing with such an instance and how to, “preserve the sanctity of human life,” amongst the, “non-zombie humans.”
Surprisingly, the document gets quite specific as it lists several forms of potential zombies such as; human eating zombies, chicken zombies (CZ), zombies from space, vegetarian zombies, and even zombies that arise from, “occult experimentation.”
The document goes into shocking detail specifically regarding Chicken Zombies as they are, “the only proven class of zombie that actually exists.” The document further explains, “So-called ‘CZs’ occur when old hens that can no longer lay eggs are euthanized by farmers with carbon monoxide, buried, and then claw their way back to the surface.”
The first couple lines of the document describe, “this plan was not actually designed as a joke,” but instead to be used as a military scenario in which the government had to deal with an apocalyptic event of sorts.
Navy Capt. Pamela Kunze further shared, “The document is identified as a training tool used in an in-house training exercise where students learn about the basic concepts of military plans and order development through a fictional training scenario.”
What’s even more shocking is that the U.S. isn’t the only nation with such a preparation as Britain has drafted up plans for a Zombie infestation as well.
What do you guys think – is this just another example of wasted tax payer dollars, or is this actually useful (or could it be)? Let us know in a comment below.
