by the time those "first few days" have passed, it can be expected that at least a solid amount of people have been infected. and putting soldiers on rooftops is a bad idea. theyll be walkers in the buildings too. most tall building have only one way, which is the door. what will the men do when there isnt much support at the moment and thiers hundreds of them going through that door? Sure, there might be some smart officers that tell them to try control the flow by letting them in one by one. but how many of those officers will there be? and shortages happen all the time, theres no such thing as unlimited resources. and attracting them outside the city is especially a bad idea. no control flow and just spread out with numbers much so on the zombie's side. how many of those shots and explosions will kill the brain?
No need for explosions, simple semi-auto fire. About rooftops, having an helicopter staying on it (if it's a big building) for evac. The idea behind making them get outside the cities is to "channel" them in one direction and let their numbers play against them (they are stuck). No need for unlimited resources: arsenals are full and securing a few factories and getting someone to work in them isn't that hard. I'm not saying it will be sorted out in a few days, but after a few weeks everything will be under control.
