How Chemical Warfare Works

The very words 'chemical weapon' may fill ordinary people with horror and awe. Indeed, these weapons have been around since the WWI, and pretty soon the nations of the world decided that it went too far, since the effects of such a weapon can be neither predicted nor controlled.

Besides, very seldom do terrorists and outcasts of the political spectrum pay any attention to international treaties; hence, the threat is even more possible. Let's try to track down the history of CW, and learn more about how different chemical agents work and discuss some possible ways of eradicating such a threat.
