Armchair Generalist: Happy 30th Birthday, BWC!

Armchair Generalist had a post yesterday about the 30th birthday of the Biological Weapons Convention. He notes that John "the screaming diplomat" Bolton had a hand in killing the verification process for the convention.

For those of you who think that the biothreat isn't real, I highly recommend taking a look at this NOVA special on Bioterrorism. If you really want to scare yourself check out the interview with Russian Biowarrior Sergei Popov, who helped develop some of Russia's doomsday bugs. Read the whole interview here.

Also useful is their Global Guide to Bioweapons. How many enemies of the United States, current or potential, do you count on that list?
