1866 words - 7 pages

War in the 21st Century is viewed differently as opposed to previous wars. The use of media forms such as television and radio has helped put the minds of Americans at ease as our country fights in battles. With the help of technology and restrictions on war such as banning the use of inhumane ways of defense, Americans view war a little more calmly than our ancestors hundreds of years ago. The advancement of technology has led to more information given about wars being fought today and the use of chemical and biological weapons in previous wars has led to regulations which has all contributed in helping. The efforts of advancing technology combined with the restrictions of biological and chemical as well as nuclear weapons has helped ease the minds of Americans as their country faces present and future wars. Biological weapons were widely used until and through World War II. Biological weapons include anthrax, botulism, and small pox. The most common biological weapon known to Americans is anthrax. It is most commonly known because it was used following the attacks on September 11, 2001.

Anthrax is most common in South and Central America, the Middle East and Asia. Small pox, another biological weapon and although vaccinations are given thought the world as a prevention of it, there was one case reported in 1977 in Somalia.
