Are You Prepared for a Zombie Apocalypse? The U.S. Government Is

The United States may have one of the largest militaries on earth, but even the Pentagon has taken no chances at being caught off-guard by an unusual foe. In fact, in 2011, the Department of Defense released a strategy to combat a potential zombie apocalypse. While the potential opponents might be fictional, the military took it seriously. In fact, the first line of the Counter-Zombie Dominance Plan, or “CONPLAN 8888-11,” states, “This plan was not actually designed as a joke.” CONPLANN 8888-11 laid out a 31-page strategy in three parts. First, create and uphold a defensive plan to protect humankind from mind-munching predators. Second, establish procedures to eradicate any threat of zombies. Third, restore law and order to a war-ridden economy. Leaving no stone unturned, CONPLAN 8888-11 also includes the possible legal ramifications of attacking zombies. As it turns out, laws prohibiting military violence, both domestically and internationally, are only geared towards human and animal life. So, in the case of an invading horde of unknown pathogenic beings, zombies seem to be fair game.
