The gathering biological warfare storm by Jim A Davis( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new threat is stalking nations, as terrorist organizations and rogue states alike appear intent on acquiring and using the poor man's nuclear weapon: biological agents such as anthrax, smallpox, and plague. Attacks against Americans during the past dozen years may be an indication of more worrisome events to come. U.S. military forces in Japan were attacked in April of 1990 with botulinum toxin by the Aum Shinrikyo cult. Hundreds in Oregon were sickened with Salmonella after an attack in 1984. And small amounts of anthrax resulted in widespread panic and frequent evacuations across the Unite

Radical responses to radical regimes : evaluating preemptive counter-proliferation by Barry R Schneider( Book )

13 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On December 7, 1993, Secretary of Defense Les Aspin announced that the United States was adding a military dimension to its fight to prevent the spread of weapons of mass destruction (WMD). The new program, called the Counter- Proliferation Initiative (CPI), provides funding to prepare for combating foes with nuclear, biological, and chemical (NBC) and missile weapons on future battlefields, improves monitoring for locating rival NBC/missile programs, improves theater defenses, and develops weapons capable of penetrating and destroying underground facilities. U.S. efforts will include a diplomatic offensive to persuade U.S. allies to take similar counter-proliferation steps. The central thrust of the CPJ is to prepare U.S. and allied forces for dealing with future enemies on the battlefield who are armed with weapons of mass desfruction. An important secondary thrust of the CPI is to provide the Commander-in-Chief with the tools to disarm an adversary unilaterally if necessary, before the adversary can initiate the use of WMD in situations where we are on a collision course with such an enemy and no alternative course seems feasible

Middle East security issues : in the shadow of weapons of mass destruction proliferation( Book )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ten authors of the essays in this study examine issues that the US must address if its national security policy in the Middle East is to be well informed. In "NBC and Missile Proliferation in the Middle East," Lawrence Scheinman summarizes the nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons capabilities and missile systems of Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Libya, and Syria. Scheinman argues that that stability in the region is best served by universal adherence to treaties to prevent the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD). Anthony R. Cordesman, in his essay "Recent Developments in the Persian Gulf," looks at both the conventional and WMD military balance between the states in the region. He assesses the volume of arms transfers to each state in the region and their impact on balance of power in the region. In "Arab Perspectives on Middle Eastern Security," Ibrahim A. Karawan, concludes that the lack of success in curbing the spread of nuclear weapons in the Middle East is not surprising. Karawan asserts that the proliferation of chemical and biological weapons among Arab and Middle East states is a natural deterrence response. Avner Cohen, in "Regional Security and Arms Control in the Middle East: The Nuclear Dimension," explains the diametrically opposite approaches taken by the two sides in the arms control and regional security negotiations. Cohen asserts that the future of nuclear arms control in the region will depend on progress toward the settlement of the Arab-Israeli conflict and the evolution of politics and society in states outside the region. In "The Egyptian-Israeli confrontation over the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty," W. Andrew Terrill compares and contrasts the Egyptian and Israeli views of how best to achieve a nuclear-free zone in the Middle East
The world's most threatening terrorist networks and criminal gangs( Book )

11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Terrorist organizations and international criminal networks pose an increasingly severe danger to U.S. security. Who are these rivals that threaten us? What do they want to achieve? This book looks at diverse groups such as Al Qaeda, its jihadist fellow travelers, as well as Hezbollah and its terrorist sponsor, Iran, Other chapters examine Hamas, Jemaah Islamiyah, the FARC, the Mexican drug cartels, and the criminal gang Mara Salvatrucha 13. Pakistan, where jihadists pose an extreme security threat, is another focus as is a chapter on terrorist WMD threats. This look at sub-state rivals is recommended to all serious students of international security."--Jacket

The war next time : countering rogue states and terrorists armed with chemical and biological weapons( Book )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume, The War Next Time, was begun before the initiation of "the war last time," namely Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF). Most of the book has been updated to reflect that OIF experience. However, some of the chapters were reprints of journal articles or published speeches that took place prior to Operation Iraqi Freedom. Therefore, this is something the reader should keep in mind, especially when reading chapters 2, 8, and 9. It is a central hypothesis of this book that the future conflicts of the United States are highly likely to be unconventional wars where the adversary uses unconventional means to try to level the playing field against the world's foremost military power. Further, the editors and authors share the premise that this "war next time" very likely may take the form of biological and/or chemical warfare or terrorism. Therefore, that is the focus of this book. As we say at the USAF Counterproliferation Center, "We cannot afford to be the unready confronting the unthinkable." To this end, this volume is aimed at educating the future U.S. policy-makers, airmen, soldiers, sailors, and marines who will be called upon to deal with the menace of adversaries armed with chemical and biological capabilities
Counterforce targeting capabilities and challenges by Barry R Schneider( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Counterforce targeting is one of the important means of removing potential weapons of mass destruction (WMD) threats to the United States and its allies and is one of the multiple means available to thin out the weapons of mass destruction threat. To fully understand what progress the United States has made in counterforce capability, as well as the continuing shortfalls and the way ahead, one has to search for answers to a few key questions, namely: " What would the ideal counterforce capability entail? " How has weapons accuracy changed warfare? " What are the implications of stealth technology for counterforce? " How can the U.S. military neutralize deeply buried hardened facilities and what challenges do these present to U.S. forces? " How can the U.S. military defeat the threat of adversary missiles fired from transporter-erector-launchers? How capable are we at present? What needs to be done to neutralize such future Scud Hunt threats? " How can the U.S. military eliminate enemy WMD assets without major collateral damage? How far have we come in creating thermobaric and agent defeat weapons for this purpose? " What strides has the United States taken in Science and Technology to improve U.S. counterforce weapons capability? " What advantages do new U.S. counterforce targeting planning tools such as the Counterproliferation Analysis and Planning System (CAPS) provide to commanders? When should and should not the United States leadership elect to employ counterforce attacks in a preemptive or preventive war mode? " Finally, what future steps in organizing, training and equipping U.S. forces needs to be taken to make U.S. counterforce capabilities adequate to the challenges of finding, fixing, and destroying adversary WMD and other military assets in a time of war? II. commanders?

Seeking a port in the WMD storm : counterproliferation progress, shortfalls and the way ahead by Barry R Schneider( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Like a ship running from a hurricane at sea, the United States Government is struggling to reach a safe port and shelter from a threatening WMD storm. In an era where some adversaries are perhaps on the cusp of achieving the capabilities to destroy forward deployed American military forces with nuclear weapons (e.g., in a future conflict with North Korea) or to kill thousands of Americans in our cities with aerosolized biological weapons (e.g., if Al Qaeda were to achieve the capability), the United States and its allies are racing to create effective chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) countermeasures. Serious gaps remain, however, and extreme vulnerabilities persist even a decade after Secretary Les Aspin announced the beginning of the Department of Defense (DoD) Counterproliferation Initiative (CPI). Much has been done since the CPI was launched in 1993, but much still must be accomplished before the United States can confidently either deter all adversaries from CBRN attacks or, at least, effectively neutralize any such attacks by a combination of effective counterforce targeting, active defenses, passive defenses, or the ability to recover through superb consequence management actions
