By the Numbers

Here's some irony for you: the UAS is pulling their people as far from our border as they can, because they've figured out that the less live bodies they have to act as bait, the less the endless swarm of the undead from central America will bother them. By backing away our enemy is creating a corridor that basically forces the swarms toward us.

That being said, it's not as though Haven or the Union are in dire straights. I mean, yeah, no one wants to have a tide of (former) humanity to sweep over their home and crush everything they love, but we've been dealing with the undead for three years. I don't know many people who've heard about these giant hordes and even paused while eating their breakfast.

The UAS seems to think this is a viable tactic against us, and that belief stems from the difference in our cultures. They still have an edge to their fear of the undead, that unreasoning panic that goes right down to the pit of their stomachs and makes them sick. We, on the other hand, don't. Our fear is healthy and reasoned and we know that the problem is a matter of scale and numbers. It's a logical worry.

And the reason today's post is going to be short is due to my assistance in testing a logical solution.

  1. LOL, okay, well I hope that solution is to make the swarms U turn...

    This might have worked back in the beginning of the fall, but those of us out here who have been fighting are used to the swarms. No one wants to deal with them, but we have the experience.

    This whole war is such a waste of what we have left. It's truly sad to me that we are on this brink of the deaths of many. Doesn't mean we aren't prepared or that we will let anyone take from us what we have shed blood to build.
