Editorial Staff

Welcome to the web portion of Armchair General’s Global Report on the state of the world in 2005.  In conjunction with the magazine article, we will take a look at the dangerous times in which we live, and try to make sense of some of the history that brought us to this point.  The war against Terrorism is a war we must win! 

We have articles to help explain some of the dangerous weapons of the 21st Century such as Chemical, Biological and Nuclear Weapons.  These are collectively branded as "Weapons of Mass Destruction" or WMD, often heard in today’s news.  Learn more in What YOU Need to Know About Weapons of Mass Destruction.
