    RE: Zombie Outbreak and the Military

    Didn't want to divert the conversation further away from the movie Dawn of the Dead discussed in this thread:

    http://www.bullshido.net/forums/show...threadid=10741

    ...

    But I'd like to discuss this quote further:

Oh well.
    What do you think the American military SHOULD do in the event of a zombie outbreak (similar to that in the movie "Dawn of the Dead")? What would inevitably happen?

    I feel that yes you can bombard them from afar, call in air strikes, ETC... But given the property damage and possible death of american civilians doesn't it make more sense to hunker down and wait until you know what you are dealing with? In particular how the "disease" is transmitted?

    I'd be in favor of organizing groups of zombie hunter groups to locate trapped humans... but I don't think it makes sense to be blow one of our own cities to hell just to kill zombies!!!!11

    zombies are like a demon possesed limb: The only way to deal with a city they are in is to lop it off and replace it with a chainsaw.

    With that and a bang stick you're ready to go.

      Do we have appropriate body armor? If I'm wearing a space suit can I wander into a pack of zombies care free? I wonder....

      Dochter -- isn't it a BOOM stick?!!1

            True enough... they "could" make one if they had the time..... heck this f-er and his bear suit would likely be ok:

            But in terms of availability... limited until they could be mass produced. What should the military do in the meantime?

              Good stuff, Shumagorath!!

              brandeissansoo ... I dunno -- anything that can be taken off with hands either by accident or intentionally... I don't think I'd trust. Plus there are gaps in the armor and most of us aren't used to lugging around all that extra weight. Zombies would eat canned food too I'm thinking.

                    One other thought, Shumagorath:

                    If you DID exterminate thousands (millions?) of zombies and a cure or... something... were later found down the road... imagine the backlash. :(

                      In the case of a Zombie outbreak, I think the military SHOULD be called in.. Air Raids, Tanks, and what not. I mean, a single tank could stand against an entire horde of zombies. Well that's my input of the situation.

                        I'm willing to shoot first and ask questions later so there is a tomorrow, instead of looking for a cure to undead cannibal frenzy syndrome.

                          I have to agree highly. I mean, kill or be killed. Fuck that, I'm not gonna get eaten by some undead cannibalistic fucker.

                              If you come back two months later is a zombie still a zombie? ... or will it have run out of flesh to eat and stop moving?
