What's all this sudden governmental interest in killer robots and zombies?

Is there something going on that we should know about?

If something happens I hope it's not before the new Star Wars movie comes out.

So does the CDC.

Although it's "out there," I still think it's a good idea to have contingencies for non-standard opponents. And it's something that helps engage the public.

One would think aliens would be a more likely non standard opponent, plus they have more scenarios to play with and would make a better training foil.

More logical perhaps, but zombies have monopolized the zeitgeist.

Zombies are also a useful stand-in for developing techniques useful against drone/robotic foes carrying out limited programming/orders.

Man, western civ in trouble. :lol:

Actually aliens could fulfill all those training rolls just as easily, plus some rolls the US army isn't preparing for currently. An alien foe could come in any form.

Link from the CNN article. The original intent was not to use Effyuhupistan and get the public riled or upset Effyuhupistan enough that they want to...well...eff you up. But it would seem that they had fun.

Does anyone really think the general population is capable of calmly and rationally dealing with knowing 'everything', and Im sure some are amazing if not shocking, that the worlds governments have learned over decades of observation, research and of course, good ol' fashioned spying.?

As for zombies, lest we forget, many discoveries have been made by accident. Two such incidents come to mind, IIRC penicillan is one such example. Another in the business world was a brand of soap. Its said the'mixing' machine had been left on 'by accient' over night, the next morning they found the soap was so 'pure' it was actually floating. The same became a very successful product for that company.
So, whos to say that by accident some chemical may very well be made (if not already) while may not reanimate the dead, but might cause both the mind and body to slowly decay into extreme violent madness, until finally the subject dies themself.

Now while many maybe thinking this is all sheer fantasy, remember friends, "the very idea that man could fly" or that "man could travel in space" were both labled laughable by the polite critic's of there time. Just some thoughts.
