The reality-bending popularity and persistence of the zombie craze is interesting, and does lend itself to conspiracy theory pretty nicely. The part
that bugs me is that 90% of what zombies do is walk around aimlessly and unarmed not doing very much except looking awful, so if an actual hysteria
were to break out over a perceived zombie outbreak, it could lend itself to the massacre of anyone from refugees, to the sick, to the homeless, to
rioters, to the slightly dirty or disheveled.
That's movie zombies, and the reason for this is in a 2d films narrative, where exposition is frowned upon, it is important to "show" something to
the film going audience. One man did it, "Night Of the Living Dead" and it became the standard, everyone copied with slight variations on the theme.
There was a film that was a tad bit more accurate, "Body Snatchers."
The "zombie" notion, when extrapolated out as "soulless" being, and sans the dirty, walking around thing, becomes a very different thing in our
reality. If you know what constitutes the animating energy of the human/body form on earth, and you can see that in the bodies walking around - nearly
all human/body folks on earth have lost their ability, the soulless thing is more common then you'd imagine. One has to wonder if some are concerned
that said soulless beings are, one day soon, going to snap and it is unclear to those in charge of the planet what will happen - so precautions are
being taken. Oddly enough, the body will still be have like a body.... if you know what I mean.
Or, in the endless preparation for the round up of all the scum humans, kind of like Stalin, or Pol Pot, or even Mao (remember it could NEVER happen
here) they are just practicing, as well they should, as it makes no sense to act like Stalin without a plan - whacking 30 million of your best and
brightest needs a plan.
You know, it's really funny how right now I'm reading Dean Koontz's book "Strangers". It's not a new publication whatsoever, but in it and to make a
long story short, the military are planning on killing people because they believe they are infected with an evil alien or dark spiritual energy that
the military accidentally allowed to escape into the public sector, or so that's what I'm gathering from the point I'm at currently in the story.
Here's a synapse of the story: en.wikipedia.org...
Back to the topic, I think this is truly a desensitization tactic for the troops. At the very least, a means of helping to blur the lines between
fantasy and reality. Maybe this is why the Obama administration gave money to the gaming and entertainment industry and is being quiet about any links
to gaming and Sandy Hook. They want the lines blurred. It's been noted that young adults today do indeed have trouble distinguishing fantasy from
reality, so why not try to see how adult soldiers fare with this when confronted with a 4D fantasy environment where they're first person shooters in
the real world with a "fake" scenario?
Strange times, I tell you. Strange times!

I guess we will all see, when April 27th rolls around and there is a mass shooting or similar occurrence, that will be all-telling. Why a government

In any case, why would the government be using these 'alien' type scenarios after decades of denial of E.T. existence unless to initiate some project
"Blue Beam" type operation?

For the exact same reason the FAA allowed airlines to deviate from the standard safety speech and allow the attendents to sing / dance / make up their
own method of conveying the information.
For those who doubt it, look at the buzz this upcoming scenario is generating...
drop the zaombie and the UFO theme and you have another drill that would have been a blurb on page 5 of the society section. The goal for these
drills is to generate awareness. Whether or not you are participating or watching, the concept is to get people thinking about the what if
On the rare off chance we have a Zombie UFO crash land on this planet, at least we will have an idea of whats gpoing to happen in terms of the
aftermath and what the Hospitals can expect.
People need to open their minds a little bit and understand that when the same method of training is used over and over and over, it can lose
Complacency is the harbinger of disaster and high body counts...
In the event this flight turns into a cruise....
If you dont like our service or if the flight gets to long we have 6 emergency exits....
If you pull the red tab and it doesnt inflate it was nice knowing you...

I will echo the others who have said this is merely a training exercise with a fun theme.
To those who think this is, of course, just the government practicing to kill those opposed to the government. If/when a disaster strikes and the
government is unprepared, this board will be filled with those asking why. BUT, when the government does disaster preparedness drills, those same
people ask why. It's a lose/lose scenario for disaster preparedness.
The government is either out to kill us or they are woefully unprepared to protect us.
To those who think this is the government preparing us for a UFO crash and zombie apocalypse...come on...really?
"Well you see... they will be flying an unmanned drone with a big genetics lab with the CDC 'superbug' inside being tested as it accidentally gets
caught in a tree and they have to use ropes to try to get to it. But then it falls and mass casualties happen. Since the superbug kills 50% of all it
infects we will see more casualties. Then since the U.S. will be in a panic they will use the MRAP tanks they have and all those shiny hollow points
to keep all of us citizens in line. Because they don't want that facebook group to march on D.C. and arrest them all."
*sigh* I really should quit reading him all these posts off ATS while he plays FPS games. He has WAAAAYY too much time to be clever. =P
How about elephants in platform shoes, not dropping from the sky but flying hang gliders?
A mass paratroop drop by invading aliens who looked like two-trunked elephants flying hang gliders and wearing platform shoes (designed to absorb
the landing impact). The characters witnessing it start laughing when they see it... and promptly stop when they spot the guns.
All jokes aside, I'm wondering what their training entails and what weapons they're going to be using?
What kind of weapons might you use against alien zombies? Will the double tap work?
I'm wondering if this training is for specialized weapons that have just recently been introduced to our military?
Anyone else find any information about more specifics regarding what weapons will be practiced with?
Say laser guns have just been issued. I suppose this would be the proper scenario to practice with technology you are not familiar with and need to
get into the mood of why such weapons are necessary.
Then, my thoughts turn to microwave heat weapons where it might be necessary to center this energy on a crowd of "zombies" or one freaking large
I honestly wish that someone would pop into the thread and admit that they are going to be participating in this drill with a helmet cam. I'd love to
see the footage. Wouldn't it be interesting if this "drill" was actually a cover for the filming for a video game? After all, why not kill two
birds with one stone? It would be genius to "train" soldiers AND be filming the realistic sequences of the number one selling video game for the
summer. Not that I've heard anything particular about the anticipation of a video game related to this scenario, but would anyone really be
Are you suggesting that psychological warfare will work against alien zombies?
Because I thought this only worked on Earthlings.
Edit to Add: I remember hearing about that drill and seeing photos of people dressed as zombies walking the streets. I'm pretty sure there was an ATS
thread about it, but I'm too tired to research it right now.
Maybe the Crisis Actors School has a class called Zombies 101, which would of course be a prerequisite to Alien Zombies class.

Oh, I get it. Sorry, I inferred incorrectly.
So, this would be a drill on how to contain and clean up after a crashed unmanned drone possessing nuclear weapons or being powered by nuclear energy.
Am I on the right track now?
