Zombies!!!

According to Yahoo news the U.S. Military will begin conducting training exercises today that will simulate a Zombie apocalypse. The training will involve the U.S. Marines and Navy special-operations forces. It will be held at the Paradise Point Resort in San Diego California. The resort covers 44 acres on an island and will be transformed with what seems to be pretty detailed sets, including a Middle Eastern village and a pirate cove (I’m assuming somali pirates not Jack Sparrow.)

The training is partially a result of The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)highly publicized campaign that was started last year. They gave resources for zombie preparedness to help families and citizens be prepared for natural disasters and other types of emergencies. However this is not just a publicity stunt for our armed forces.

“This is a very real exercise. This is not some type of big costume party,” Brad Barker, president of the Halo Corp. security company, told the Associated Press.

It seems there is some practicality to this as it has been said that they are using this scenario as one possibility for many real life situations being dealt with by our men and women in the armed forces. The question I pose to you is do you think there is more to these CDC warnings and military training exercises than what we see or is it all just to lighten the mood of some very real and serious situations they have and continue to deal with around the world?

In any case I will be stockpiling food and weapons for a completely unrelated matter.
