One Response to Terrorist WMDs Found?

  • In the short term dirty bombs of most forms are not likely to produce mass death, rather mass panic is more likely.

    In the longer term there are some serious health concerns depending on the type of dirty bomb, and the problem of decontamination of a dirty bomb impacted area would be likely as involved, expensive, and time consuming as the WTC clean up.

    Now if there is a true nuclear weapon, that is a much greater threat, but not a very probable one.

    Chemical weapons seems to be the WMD most likely to be able to cause both mass death and be obtained by terrorists. Biologicals are less probably but equally or more dangerous.
