Defence Against Weapons of Mass Destruction Terrorism Book Excerpt:

In Defence Against Weapons of Mass Destruction Terrorism the editors examined the class of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) for terrorist use, and have found that their effects range from serious nuisance value up to catastrophic destruction of a large urban area. There are some differences in the effects depending on whether they are used against military or civilian targets, whether they are used from inside the target area or outside, and between those weapons for which MOPP (Mission Oriented Protective Posture) gear can provide useful protection (Biological Weapons, Chemical Weapons) and those for which it often cannot (radiation, nuclear explosions). These are useful ways to begin thinking about establishing protocols for protecting our armed forces and the civilian population they are sworn to defend.

Eliminating Weapons of Mass Destruction Book Excerpt:

The events of September 11th, 2001 altered the course of arms control intended to eliminate weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and made the role of international disarmament organizations controversial. Whether they can effectively verify compliance with the WMD treaty regime has been questioned by the United States. The study examines this by looking at the management of the three existing verification organizations--the International Atomic Energy Agency, the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organization and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons--and draws conclusions for a future institution on biological weapons. It presents the IAEA verification system for nuclear weapons as a model for evaluating the systems for chemical and biological weapons. The importance of the IAEA's role has been recognized by the 2005 Nobel Peace Prize.

1 2 3 John and Jude Book Excerpt:

In the face of false teachings about Jesus, the apostle John took a direct approach. “I heard Jesus speak,” he wrote. “I saw him . . . I even touched him.” Just as we would write about someone we knew and loved, John told the early believers the truth about the Savior. But he didn’t let them off the hook without an examination of their lives. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us” (1 John 1:9). John was not alone in his concern about the influence of false teachers in the early church. Jude, a half-brother of Christ, also wrote to the believers. In his letter, he firmly warned against defecting from true biblical faith, urged all believers to fight for truth, and encouraged all followers of Jesus to stand firm in spite of intense spiritual warfare. The MacArthur Bible Studies provide intriguing examinations of the whole of Scripture. Each guide incorporates extensive commentary, detailed observations on overriding themes, and probing questions to help you study the Word of God with guidance from John MacArthur.

At the Breaking Point of History Book Excerpt:

Today, we find ourselves embroiled in the midst of a pandemic, one which has collapsed economies, caused death by starvation, and has resulted in severe new restrictions on civil rights in the US and elsewhere. Numerous medical professionals and researchers are questioning the genesis of the Covid- 19 agent, whether or not it was bioengineered and deliberately released and are also questioning the course taken to shut down whole countries and demand that people stay at home. Questions have also been raised as to the verifiability of the numbers alleged to have died from this novel coronavirus, pointing to dictates from the CDC to list deaths not directly caused by the virus as virus-caused deaths. In the midst of this chaos, these articles, written long before the Covid-19 pandemic, point to a monstrous political agenda, implicating media, government, and foreign nations in the plan to launch this. As the country begins to reopen, the trajectory of these articles should result in grave concern for what the future may hold.

Weapons of Mass Destruction Book Excerpt:

Against the backdrop of international attempts to prevent the use of weapons of mass destruction, this volume of essays by well-known analysts: examines what the threat to India could entail; highlights the differences between state use of these weapons and their use by non-state actors; discusses possible scenarios India needs to guard against and protective measures it can take; and determines the position the Indian government needs to take in the international arena in respect of initiatives to prevent the use of weapons of mass destruction.

These studies concentrate on preventing the use of weapons of mass destruction. A common argument runs through all of the papers: that, while complacency must be avoided, much of the post-Cold War focus among Western governments on the threat posed by weapons of mass destruction is alarmist.
