The Pentagon Has a Plan to Stop the Zombie Apocalypse
"This plan fulfills fictional contingency planning guidance tasking for U.S. Strategic Command to develop a comprehensive [plan] to undertake military operations to preserve 'non-zombie' humans from the threats posed by a zombie horde," CONOP 8888's plan summary reads. "Because zombies pose a threat to all non-zombie human life, [Strategic Command] will be prepared to preserve the sanctity of human life and conduct operations in support of any human population -- including traditional adversaries."
As its authors note in the document's "disclaimer section," "this plan was not actually designed as a joke."

Re: The Pentagon Has a Plan to Stop the Zombie Apocalypse
The "worst case threat scenario," according to the plan, suggests a rather dark situation: a zombie attack in which there would be high "transmissibility," lots of zombies eating lots of people, zombies infecting humans at a rapid rate, and little or no immunity and few effective countermeasures.

Re: The Pentagon Has a Plan to Stop the Zombie Apocalypse
It seemed a bit strange the number 8888, so I searched to find if there's some meaning attached to it.
It turns out that this CONOP 8888's plan might be a code name for nationwide popular uprising!

The 8888 Nationwide Popular Pro-Democracy Protests also known as the People Power Uprising was a series of marches, demonstrations, protests, and riots in the Socialist Republic of the Union of Burma.
The 8888 uprising was started by students in Yangon (Rangoon) on 8 August 1988. Student protests spread throughout the country. Hundreds of thousands of ochre-robed monks, young children, university students, housewives, and doctors demonstrated against the regime.

They call "zombies" people particpating in riots and civil unrest.
