Synopsis: "Weapons of Mass Destruction Terrorism"
The Cold War threatened mutual nuclear annihilation. In the Gulf War, the Iraqi threat of chemical or biological payloads loomed with every Scud launch. Today, the threat is the use of such weapon systems by terrorist organizations or Iraq.
From DoD Chief Cohen to the United Nations to the White House to CNN, the theme is the same: Weapons of Mass Destruction, or WMD.
Commander James Campbell's analyses brings WMD and Terrorism into perspective - as scary as it may be.
On November 14, 1994 President Clinton signed Executive Order number 12938 which declared a national emergency. It said that proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (those weapons categorized as nuclear, chemical or biological) posed an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States.
Commander Campbell's new book, "Weapons of Mass Destruction Terrorism" responds to these national concerns and argues that the terrorist use of Weapons of Mass Destruction will emanate from non-state groups operating under a veneer of religion, or ethnic-racist hate. These groups, plus the occasional cult, are the most likely candidates to threaten use of WMD in a mass casualty "super-terrorist act". Emanating from these movements will be the "Post Modern Terrorists" who possess a "ripeness" to threaten use of weapons of mass destruction
Campbell's very readable, non-technical book is an occasionally terrifying look at Why such terrible weapons might be used and Who would resort to their use.
About the Author: Commander James K. Campbell is one of the world's pre-eminent experts on terrorism, how such groups think, what drives them and the likelihood of them attacking large numbers of people using Weapons of Mass Destruction.
