WASHINGTON, May 14 (UPI) -- The United States military has a plan to combat zombies in the event the dead rise from their graves and begin an organized attack.

Foreign Policy identified a document named "CONOP 8888," also called "Counter-Zombie Dominance," which addresses issues for U.S. Strategic Command planners if confronted with the walking dead.

"This plan fulfills fictional contingency planning guidance tasking for the U.S. 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 operation in support of any human population," its summary reads.

The plan differentiates between "vegetarian zombies" who pose no threat to humans, "evil magic zombies," and "chicken zombies and zombies from outer space."

U.S. Navy Capt. Pamela Kunze referred to the anti-zombie protocols as "a training tool used in an in-house training exercise, where students learn about the basic concepts of military plans and order development, through a fictional training scenario. The document is not a U.S. Strategic Command plan."
