Graham-Harrison, Emma, 24 Oct. Gursky, Elin, Thomas V. Harris, Sheldon H. Heller, Charles E. Inglesby, Thomas V. Croddy Eric. Perez-Armendariz, With: J. The armaments of chemical and biological warfare CBW are now widely held not just by nation-states, but by terrorist and criminal enterprises.
The weapons themselves are relatively inexpensive and very easy to hide, allowing organizations of just a few dozen people to deploy potentially devastating attacks. While in the twentieth century most arms-control efforts focused, rightly, on nuclear arsenals, in the twenty-first century CBW will almost certainly require just as much attention.
