    Chemical and biological weapons are the most dangerous threats that our soldiers face today. But just how much do most of us know about them? The American public had been bombarded by stories of how our government keeps secret weapons, does secret experiments, and the everlasting conspiracies. And many accept it all. Rather than simply trusting our government, (which is perhaps as foolish as believing several unsubstantiated), I've compiled several simple facts regarding recent and historic deve...

In attacking Iraq without any specific United Nations resolution, the United States and Britain asserted that Iraq ...

    In 1956 and 1966, clearly with Japanese agreement, the United States kept nuclear weapons and in later years nuclear bombs without their fissile cores on Chichi-jima, about 500 miles southeast of the Japanese mainland.
