PostPost-Nuclear Superweapons: Biological Agents (John Heelan, -UK, 02/05/18 4:48 am)
JE asked on February 4th: "What can be more powerful and dangerous than the nuclear weapons we already have? Bigger nukes? More tactically nefarious ones?"
Biological weapons based on disease-producing agents, such as bacteria, viruses, rickettsiae, fungi, toxins, or other biological agents. They can be used as weapons against humans, animals, or plants. They are cheaper to develop (e.g. Genetic Modification) and easier to deliver by using the target population itself.
JE comments: Don't we already have these? Biological weapons go back at least to Cortés and Tenochtitlan. Cortés delivered a smallpox-infested blanket to his Aztec enemies. The result was far deadlier than any blade or projectile.
