No probably not its just not in their interest. and they are mates with the Yanks who do have them.
Nuclear, biological, toxic and chemical weapons. The following are a list of weapons (real & under research) with massive destructive capabilities. - modified smallpox (the most popular form of biological weapon). With some modifications, this disease is capable of crippling continents (modified… smallpox research has been done in the U.S.A, former Soviet Union, Middle East, etc.) - I.C.B.M. (intercontinental ballistic missile) => M.I.R.V.s (cluster nuclear warheads that spread out mini nuclear bombs like a shotgun) - Kinetic bombardment => involves a weapon system in orbit of earth that launches a giant tungsten pole/rod onto the earth at an impact speed of mach 10, it carries the firepower of 225kg of conventional military explosives (also has strike 25 foot accuracy) ( Full Answer )
A fanatical leader of Iraq until recently when he was caught bytroops sent in to rid the country of him and rid him of thecountry. He murdered thousands of his citizens through his veryharsh regime and became notorious throughout the world. He waseventually put to death by hanging under his own capi…tal punishmentlaws after a war crimes court case. Saddam Hussein was the fifth President of Iraq serving from july1979 till April 2003. He is known to be a ruthless dictator whokept iraq at war almost continously after assuming power. He used alot of means to stay in power for two decades. His entire rulingperiod was very brutal and inhumane. Therefore, he was sentenced todeath on 5th november 2006 and killed by hanging in the next month. ( Full Answer )
A positive analysis is a statement of what is. The truth. Purely descriptive statements or scientific predictions. A normative analysis is a statement of what ought to be. Analysis involving value judgments.
In all fairness, Hussein really wasn't the threat; it was the vast store of WMD's in Iraq that the US needed to contend with. Saddam Hussein was definitely a threat, but not necessarily for the major publicized reasons. . He was openly hostile to the US after the first US-Iraq War. . He had …invaded Kuwait. . He torched the oil wells in Kuwait. . He was committed to arousing anti-US sentiment globally. . He was willing to commit mass murders on some of his people and the Kuwaiti people, sometimes using WMD's. . Iraq was a strong enough country to interfere in other plans the US might have in the area. . Iraq converted their oil sales to use Euros as opposed to the US dollar, and encouraged other countries to do the same. . He had fought a war with the US and still ruled the country. . He could be a rallying symbol for anti-US imperialism. . Their country traded with other countries, reducing overall dependence on Western nations. . He was anti-Israel, and used Kuwait as a bargaining chip with Israel. . He could not be fully controlled. ( Full Answer )

Several major US leaders met with Saddam Hussein including DonaldRumsfeld and Rachel Glaspie. However, these contacts ended in 1991because of the Persian Gulf War of 1990-1991.
He was hung on December 30, 2006, but he was hung by an IraqiTribunal, not the United States.
Saddam Hussein used many methods to kill his own people. He woulduse torture methods to kill people, hangings, chemicals, andshootings.
There is at least one of them, as I have a copy, and was looking for the artist name when I encountered this page. Song title: Weapons of Mass Destruction (parody to tune of "Eve of Destruction")
Positive economics is the branch of economics that concerns thedescription and explanation of economic phenomena. Normativeeconomics is the study of economics that attempts to determine thedesirability of different economic conditions.
Best estimates place the number of nuclear weapons Pakistan currently possesses somewhere between 50-60. Most of these are not attached to delivery systems (missiles, air-dropped munitions), but could be done in relatively short order. These weapons fall within the 4-12 kiloton range, the explosive …equivalent of 4,000-12,000 tons of TNT. For comparison:. The weapon dropped on Hiroshima: ~15 kilotons. The most powerful US device ever detonated: ~15 megatons (15,000 kilotons). The most powerful device ever detonated (USSR 'Tsar Bomba'): ~50 megatons (50,000 kilotons) ( Full Answer )

Weapons of mass destruction; are political tools for Internationale control terrorism: 1. Political violence: violence or the threat of violence, especially bombing, kidnapping, and assassination, carried out for political purposes. [English. v. err, To be mistaken, or make a mistake. n. Terror.…] . The above is technically incorrect - WMDs are not specifically designed for terror, though that is a major side effect of their nature, and it is trivial to employ such WMDs for political or terror purposes. At their base level, all WMDs are weapons, and thus, have an intended (military) function. Nuclear weapons are primarily blast and heat weapons, and thus, are intended for places where physical destruction is desired. Biological weapons affect solely living things, and are thus targeted at specific populations of plants or animals, with the intent of causing mass injury and/or death to that population. Biological weapons do not necessarily have to be targeted at human populations; certain animal and plant populations (particularly those useful for food purposes) can also be targets for biological WMDs. Of all the WMDs, biologicals come closest to the idea that they are purely for terror purposes. Chemical weapons are at their root, mass killing weapons with a secondary area-denial objective. Chemical weapons are generally intended to kill or drive off a defending force, and to contaminate the affected area. This effect is much the same a landmines - the contaminated area acts as a maneuver restriction on all forces in the area. Toxin weapons are primarily limited-area killing weapons. That is, compared to other WMDs, toxin weapons have a much, much smaller area of effect (though, significantly larger than comparable conventional weapons), and are generally useful for killing a defending force, where the contamination of chemicals is undesireable (that is, cleaning up an area attacked with toxins is radically simpler than one that has been attacked by chemicals).

Infected carcasses have been introduced into wells and walled cities to infect the population for centuries. Mustard gas and chlorine were used by both sides in WWI. Zyklon B was used to kill millions in Nazi death camps. There were no mass casualties for each use, but the the end result was mas…s destruction. Dresden Germany and Tokyo Japan were deliberately fire bombed during WWII and each suffered more that 50,000 casualties. Nuclear bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan August 1945.

The first "Weapon of Mass destruction" as far as Biological weapons goes back to ancient times when victims of the plague were driven into enemy lands to spread the sickness. Throwing diseased bodies over the walls of a besieged city or dumping them into a water supply were common tactics throughout… history. Chemical Weapons were first used by the German Army on April 22, 1915, during the Second Battle of Ypres in World War I. [Note: chemical weapons, e.g. poisons, were used long before WW1. WW1 is the first large-scale use of poison gas .] The first Nuclear weapons test was conducted on July 16, 1945 in New Mexico. The first Nuclear weapon used in war was used on Hiroshima, Japan on August 6, 1945. ( Full Answer )
The first weapon of mass destruction was the bomb that was droppedon Hiroshima, Japan. Over 60,000 people were killed when the bombwas dropped.
US is part of world Imperialism. shia is more political ans is seeking gaining power in world. Shia and Sunni have mostly same beliefs and both believe in fundamental beliefs of Islam. Today there is up to 260 sects in Islam that are in two main categories of shia and sunni. the conflict of shia… and sunni has been always amplified by world Imperialism to prevent Islam from gaining power. Shia believes in Allah, prophet and all fundamentals of Islam. Shia pray 5 times a day but usually do the 2, 3 and 4, 5 pray together and so may seem they do only 3 pray a day. there is some differences in details of pray like genuflect (for shia should be on a stone or part of earth and for sunni on carpet or floor ). shia believe after death of prophet God selected the successive for prophet who is the political leader of Muslim community and people can not and does not the right to selected it. Shia believes the Caliph (Representative of God in earth) is selected only by God and can not be selected by people because God said in Koran: "Indeed, I will make upon the earth a successive authority" (Quran 2:30) or "O David! We did indeed make thee a vicegerent on earth" (Quran 38:26) also other verses. Shia believes such verses means only God can select an Islamic political leader (Caliph). In Shia Islam Caliphs after prophet are 12 Imams and all of them are the same and have no mistake and have the knowledge of everything (not absolute knowledge like knowledge of God) and they hear all sayings and even thinks of all humans after even after their death by permission of God and they are intermediates between God and human Shia Muslims always support them and forgive their lives for them. Shia Muslims do not consider selection of Abubakr as Caliph by people valid because God did not select him. They believe God ordered prophet to declare people that Ali is selected as successor of prophet and prophet did this mission many times during his prophet-hood and mainly in Ghadir event after last Hajj of his life at a 3-4 hour speech in front of 120,000 Muslims at Ghadir in hot desert after 2 days stop of long caravan for gathering and 3 days after speech for congratulations and homage of Muslims to Ali. Islam at that time had high power in world and Some companions had high interest in leadership position after prophet. Muslims knew that it is the final Hajj of prophet (predicted by prophet) and were going along with prophet to hear what prophet says at end of his life. Shia believes Ghadir event is the most important event of Islam and is mentioned in Koran in many verses like "Today" (Ø§ÙÙÙÙ ) in verse 5:3 of Quran is the day of Ghadir. Or Verse 5:67 (O Messenger! proclaim the (message) which hath been sent to thee from thy Lord. If thou didst not, thou wouldst not have fulfilled and proclaimed His mission. And Allah will defend thee from men (who mean mischief). For Allah guideth not those who reject Faith) is revealed at Ghadir day and is about declaring political leadership of Ali after prophet. Both Sunni and Shia Muslims accept happening of Ghadir event But different interpret. Some Sunni writers tried to reject the event of Ghadir as declare of leadership of Ali and said at Ghadir prophet only wanted to say Ali is my friend and no one should bother him. Ali had 3 different missions to Yemen by prophet during 10 years and in 2 of them some companions of prophet had some conflicts with Ali and and prophet said some sayings about Ali to solve conflicts and some sunni writers have mixed stories of missions of Ali to Yemen with story of Ghadir to prove Ghadir event is not about Leadership of Ali and is not important. Shia scholars believe some Sunni writers have changed and deviated historical evidences about political leadership of Ali in old historical books and republished them to destroy evidences of leadership of Ali from old Sunni books. The famous Shia book Al-Ghadir (Ø§ÙØºØ¯ÙØ±) by Allameh Amini is a collection of evidences and proofs for Ghadir Events written after referring to 100,000 Sunni books and full reading of 10,000 sunny books. Allameh Amini is a famous Shia scholar and spent 40 years of his life in travelling to access original old Sunni books in libraries in different countries to write this 20 volume book only from Sunni books and not using any Shia book. Some Sunni scholars tried to reply this book but then said if we want to reply this book we should first destroy all books of ourselves. Shia doctrine have root in Karbala tragedy. When tragedy of Karbala happened most of Iranians understood there is two different kinds of Islam and after happening of Karbala tragedy most of Iranians became followers of "Ahl al-Bayt" and forgive their lives for them like what they did in Iranian Revolution and Iran-Iraq War. Shia Muslims have at least 120,000 Hadith (saying) from The Fourteen Infallibles that is the base of Shia Islam along with Quran. Shia believes according to " Hadith of the two weighty things" The Fourteen Infallibles are the only valid interpreters of Quran and sayings of them are from God because they are Representative of God in earth and they do not say anything from themselves. Shia believes 12th of them (Mahdi) is alive and because people have killed all 11 Imams before him, he is in hide like Jesus and will come out of hide toghether with Jesus when people become ready and want to accept his leadership. All 11 Imams have been killed and during their life thy all have been in prison or under hard control of government to not have any political action. They never had enough serious followers to can get political power. Among them only the sixth Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq was relatively free in his life to have only scientific activities (but banned from any political action) and so only he is known in west because he established university and had students from all over the world. Westerns know him as a polymath: an astronomer, alchemist, Imam, Islamic scholar, Islamic theologian, writer, philosopher, physician, physicist and scientist. He was also the teacher of the famous chemist, JÄbir ibn HayyÄn (Geber), and of AbÅ« á¸¤anÄ«fa, the founder of the Hanafi school of Sunni Islamic jurisprudence. He never wanted be a famous man and only shared his knowledge with who wanted to learn. Some researchers consider his teachings the root cause of renaissance. Sunni Muslims also accept Mahdi and his worldwide leadership as Caliph of God in earth at end of world. There is a famous Hadith from prophet Muhammad (PBUH) that Mahdi at hide is like sun behind cloud, he is hidden from people but people receive his benefits. Shia Muslims say some faithful believers have connection with Mahdi and use his knowledge. Shia Muslims believe that it is proved at least 1000 persons have had connection and talk with Mahdi during his hide period but Any one having relation with Mahdi keep it and does not declare it in public until is alive.

Weapons of mass destruction have never been used against the US. In fact, the US is the only country that has ever used an atomic bomb against another country and that was Japan during the second World War.
When did Saddam Hussein commit genocide against the kurds and what type of weapon did he use against them?
Basically, he gassed them all! (gas was supplied by US for use inprevious wars). This was done in the 1980s and 1990s.
A nuclear fission bomb would be the most dangerous in use today. . Frankly, no. Nuclear weapons are probably one of the least dangerous of the major categories of Weapons of Mass Destruction. For military and political purposes, the following items are generally classified as WMDs: Nuclear … : the typical A- or H-bomb. Massively destructive inside their area of effect, unless they are used in large quantities, it is relatively easy to contain the damage they do to the bomb zone. Modern studies have suggested that damage containment from a single nuclear bomb is far simpler than any other WMD. Biological : some form of virus or disease. These are by far the most dangerous form of weapon known to man right now, as they are uncontrollable once released. They can trivially move outside their initial detonation zone, and, as a biologically reproductive item, can affect many multiples of people than the initial bomb quantity would suggest. All simulated "kill all human on the planet" weapon scenarios use biological weapons - no other weapon has this potential, even large-scale nuclear war. Chemical : a variety of noxious deadly chemicals, generally categorized into blood, blister, or nerve agents (depending on the method they use to kill). As the amounts required to kill are minute, and gaseous dispersion is trivial and difficult to control, these are likely the second most dangerous category. Cleanup is extremely difficult, time-consuming, and expensive, and it is simple to carry contamination well outside the original affected area. Toxicological : a variety of poisons, natural and artificial. Highly effective killers, they are generally easy to clean up, and very restricted in area. Overall, probably the least fearful WMD. Radiological : dispersion of radioactive materials, usually via explosive device. This presents a very difficult cleanup problem, but likely low death rate. Generally, there are moderate containment issues, but overall, only a mid-level threat. Chemical weapons are by far the easiest WMD to obtain, and one of the more difficult to ascertain the use of (that is, it can be difficult to determine if a chemical WMD has been used). Biological WMDs are likely the most difficult WMD to detect the use of, as they can appear to be natural disease outbreaks. ( Full Answer )

Weapons of Mass Destruction fall into one of four categories: nuclear, biological, toxic, and chemical (though, some include toxic in either chemical or biological). The nature of WMDs is that they are practically impossible to prevent damage from, short of stopping the weapon from detonating in …the first place. Nuclear weapons are so powerful that even massively reinforced (hardened) concrete structures can be destroyed by them. Bio/toxic/chemical weapons are generally airborne, and incredibly hard to detect in many cases. Realistically, BTC weapons can only be defended against by having full body protection suits worn by individuals, or specially designed buildings/vehicles with air filtration and other environmental controls. All of these are difficult, expensive, and impractical for large-scale deployment. From a practical standpoint, protecting even modest number of people from any WMD attack is extremely difficult, and protecting property is impossible. ( Full Answer )
HAARP (the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) is a basic science research project.

Economics aims to be a positive science since, by definition, science is a positive enterprise. Normative evaluation necessarily implies valuation of specific types of outcomes over others, which would invalidate typical economic analysis by defending theory by using philosophy, especially ethics, i…nstead of mathematics, statistics, and logic. While normative evaluation is important in the application of economics, especially in the field of social welfare, it is considered taboo by economists to establish economic theory, rationally or empirically, on normative science.

Weapon of Mass Destruction are: . Nuclear Weapons, . Chemical Weapons . Biological Weapons . All weapons that could cause destruction of all people in single area regardless they are civilians or warriors. . More specifically, a weapon is classified as a "Weapon of Mass Destruction" if it f…ulfills all the following criteria: . The weapon has a very large area of effect, relative to the size of the weapon. There is no specific threshold number, but a good rule-of-thumb is anything which has an area of effect in square km per kg of weight. . The weapon is not "aimed", in the traditional sense. Due to the large area of effect and the indiscriminate nature of target selection, the weapon is not aimed at any specific individual, building, or vehicle, but is intended to affect a general area. That is, this is an area of effect weapon. . The weapon must cause indiscriminate damage - that is, it does not differentiate between types of targets, and will "attack" anyone (and everyone ) inside its area of effect. The weapon makes no distinction between friendly, neutral, or opposing forces, and makes no combatant/civilian distinction, either. . Effective protection against the weapon is extremely difficult even for prepared forces, and is practically impossible for civilian populations. . The weapon's primary purpose is death or serious incapacitation of all affected. Weapons which cause temporary effects (even if painful) are not classified as WMDs, even if they can cause small percentages of death or permanent injuries. A WMD's primary purpose must be death or destruction. Currently, there are four categories of weapons that are considered WMDs by international consensus: Nuclear (fission and/or fusion), Biological (viruses and bacteria diseases), Chemical (those which cause damage due to toxic inhalation or skin exposure), and Toxin (those which are effectively poisons). The lines between the last two are a bit blurry, as many chemicals are also toxins. ( Full Answer )
Normative Economics is the branch of economic analysis that makes prescriptions about the way the economy should work. Positive Economics is the branch of economic analysis that describes the way the economy actually works. Thanks To Louguens Charles
The International Community repeatedly ordered Iraq to dismantle its WMD program and surrender or destroy those it had already produced.
I think that answering this question would be an issue of national security, no offense.
that doesnt even make any sense any thing that is a deadly virus that is airborne is a bacterial mass destruction weapon
There are three main arms of WMD's: Nuclear, Chemical and Biological. While other possible variants exist, they can easily be categorized in one of these three forms. The US and all the largest industrialized nations have and employ a nuclear weapons capacity. Thermonuclear weapons, in the most si…mplistic sense, have three attack modalities: Electromagnetic (Heat through light in the spectrum), kinetic, and ionizing radiation. The the three, ionizing radiation or radioactivity is the least effective and least desirable, for reasons I'll discuss more under Chemical Attack. Chemical attack is the oldest category of WMD. While arguably introduced ages ago, it didn't hit it's peak until WW-I with simplistic gas attacks using mostly corrosive toxins. While the grisly aspects of gas attacks are well publicized, the truth is that gas attacks have never been very effective against a military adversary. And from WW-II on, gas countermeasures became more and more effective, so that, against a military adversary, results were always dubious. The reason for this is that gas attacks are extremely unpredictable. Humidity can effect the chemical weapon, sometimes disabling it entirely. Winds may be an even worse problem: In WW-I some reports have winds reversing gas attacks so that the were deployed over friendlies more often than the enemy. In modern warfare, chemical agents have, unsurprisingly, been improved. Particulates have been developed that are -- sometimes -- weather-resistant. Persistent weapons have been devised, that don't wash off in the rain -- and these have the same missions as minefields: denying territory to the enemy. But most of the problems remain the same, e.g. the vast unpredictability induce by natural conditions. And the same applies to nuclear fallout, where it's stunningly hard to control (especially is this era when nuclear devices can create their own micro-weather systems). In short, chemical weapons are truly WMD's, but have not found a major place in modern, general warfare. The US does not confirm the existence of chemical weapons programs. And while the US has the capability to deploy chemical weapons, the usefulness of this attack modality is questionable, and very situational. Biological weapons have been reported as early as the crusades, but have not been deployed effectively in a military context in recorded history, although perhaps apocryphal instances of deployment of biological weapons in every specific circumstances have circulated. Biological weapons have many missions, ranging from the battlefield to the local to world economy. Discussing the strategic or economic application of biological weapons exceeds the scope of this discussion. Tactically deployed biological weapons can be used for a wide variety of missions, including "mission kills" (disabling not only the infected individual but their rescue team and recovery support staff), disallowing access of territory to the enemy (same as chemical), and localized attacks on non-mobile adversaries (this last applied somewhat to static elements of battle, such as trench-deployed groups in WW-I, but more to non-military population that lacks tactical mobility). Against a modern, highly mobile military force, bio-warfare is of limited effectiveness. The US denies the current development of biological WMD's. However, it is generally accepted that the US does indeed develop these agents. The Amerithrax attacks in 2001 may have been rumored to originate from a military base involved in bio-weapons development. ( Full Answer )
Positive, it's all about having objectives that can be tested, amended or rejected with the help of evidence or an objective explanation.
In 1978 a Magic decrypt of a diplomatic signal from the Japanese embassy in Stockholm reported the astonishing news to Tokyo on 12 December 1944 that Nazi Germany had the Atomic bomb and had already used it in June 1944 south of Kursk to wipe out the Soviet 19th Division (19th Voreneyzh Rifles Div ?…) and later repeated it's use in the Crimea. It is impossible to dismiss as a hoax because it was a secret encyphered radio transmission which the Americans secretly de-cyphered and copied. The signal is held in US National Archives. It's text reads: " Part 1 This bomb is revolutionary in its results, and will completely upset all ordinary precepts of warfare hitherto established. I am sending you, in one group, all those reports on what is called the atom-splitting bomb. It is a fact that in June of 1943, the German Army tried out an utterly new type of weapon against the Russians at a location 150 kilometers southeast of Kursk. Although it was the entire 19th Infantry Regiment of the Russians which was thus attacked, only a few bombs (each round up to 5 kilograms) sufficed to utterly wipe them out to the last man. Part 2. The following is according to a statement by Lieutenant-Colonel UE [ ISHIWARA ] KENJI, advisor to the attachÃ© in Hungary and formerly in this country, who by chance saw the actual scene immediately after the above took place: " All the men and the horses the explosion of the shells were charred black and even their ammunition had all been detonated." Moreover, it is a fact that the same type of war material was tried out in the Crimea, too. At that time the Russians claimed that this was poison-gas, and protested that if Germany were ever again to use it, Russia, too, would use poison-gas. Part 3. There is also the fact that recently in London - in the period between October and the 15th of November - the loss of life and the damage to business buildings through fires of unknown origin was great. It is clear, judging especially by the articles about a new weapon of this type, which have appeared from time to time recently in British and American magazines - that even our enemy has already begun to study this type. To generalize on the basis of all these reports: I am convinced that the most important technical advance in the present great war is in the realization of the atom-splitting bomb. Therefore, the central authorities are planning, through research on this type of weapon, to speed up the matter of rendering the weapon practical. And for my part, I am convinced of the necessity for taking urgent steps to effect this end. Part 4. The following are the facts I have learned regarding its technical data: Recently the British authorities warned their people of the possibility that they might undergo attacks by German atom-splitting bombs. The American military authorities have likewise warned that the American east coast might be the area chosen for a blind attack by some sort of flying bomb. It was called the German V-3. To be specific, this device is based on the principle of the explosion of the nuclei of the atoms in heavy hydrogen derived from heavy water. (Germany has a large plant in the vicinity of Rjukan, Norway, which has from time to time been bombed by English planes.). Naturally, there have been plenty of examples even before this of successful attempts at smashing individual atoms. However, as far as the demonstration of any practical results is concerned, they seem not to have been able to split large numbers of atoms in a single group. That is, they require for the splitting of each single atom a force that will disintegrate the electron orbit. Part 5. as far as the demonstration of any practical results is concerned, they seem not to have been able to split large numbers of atoms in a single group. That is, they require for the splitting of each single atom a force that will disintegrate the electron orbit. On the other hand, the stuff that the Germans are using has, apparently, a very much greater specific gravity than anything heretofore used. In this connection, allusions have been made to SIRIUS and stars of the " White Dwarf" group. (Their specific gravity is 1 thousand, and the weight of one cubic inch is 1 ton.) In general, atoms cannot be compressed into the nuclear density. However, the terrific pressures and extremes of temperature in the " White Dwarfs" cause the bursting of the atoms; and Part 6. There are, moreover, radiations from the exterior of these stars composed of what is left of the atoms which are only the nuclei, very small in volume. According to the English newspaper accounts, the German atom- splitting device is the NEUMAN disintegrator. Enormous energy is directed into the central part of the atom and this generates at atomic pressure of several tons of thousands of tons (sic) per square inch. This device can split the relatively unstable atoms of such elements as uranium. Moreover, it brings into being a store of explosive atomic energy. A-GENSHI HAKAI DAN.
