ABSTRACT

Biological Weapons Systems   [open pdf - 427KB]

"The purpose of this study is to examine a proposal to utilize biological weapons systems in present day military situations. The study is developed around the question: Why not employ biological weapons systems, now? [...] Four suppositions are selected as having the most applicability to current policies concerning biological weapons and military acceptance of the systems. These suppositions are examined in detail, first as current understanding of them affects nonacceptance of biological systems, and secondly as a better understanding of them would affect acceptance of biological systems. Authoritative authors and official publications in the field have been utilized to support both examinations of the chosen suppositions. Near the end of the study, two hypothetical tactical examples are presented of how biological weapons systems might be used, and the advantages that could accrue from their usage. A summary is presented, conclusions are derived and certain recommendations are made for consideration."
