In 2001, a real world exercise tested the emergency response to a bioterror attack on the continental United States. Within days the simulation spiraled out of control, predicting a complete societal collapse resulting in uncontrolled civil unrest and massive civilian casualties. The Division, the recently released hit video game from Tom Clancy, was based on this exercise. It’s pretty intense. If gaming isn’t your thing, just click on the picture above and you can read the actual script for the exercise which is equally terrifying. Check out the trailer for the game which lays out the story…..
If you’ve never really thought about what this reality may look like, this should give you a pretty good idea.
