Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD)

1990 Reports

  • Does South Africa Have A Nuclear Bomb In Its Basement? by Major James L. Cobb, Jr., USA, Marine Corps University Command and Staff College Historical evidence shows that South Africa has the capability to produce nuclear weapons. But, that it has been allowed to maintain plausible denial by the U.S. and other major nuclear powers.
  • Biological Warfare Research: The Means To Counter The Biological Weapon Threat by LCdr. Ronald J. Ellis, USN, Marine Corps University Command and Staff College The emerging biological weapon threat is infinitely more lethal, indiscriminate, and easily employed than nuclear weapons and, as a result, a defensive vice offensive biological warfare research program is needed to counter this threat.
  • Single Integrated Operational Plan: The Movement From Triad To Dyad by Major Charles W. Harvey III, USMC, Marine Corps University Command and Staff College With a realignment of the Single Integrated Operational Plan (SIOP), the use of the strategic triad, land, sea, and air-based nuclear weapons must be reevaluated. In light of the developing events and their subsequent effects on global nuclear policy, the United States must move from the concept of a strategic triad to a more responsive and flexible sea and air dyad.
  • Racism And The Atomic Bomb by Major Myron L. Hampton, USMC, Marine Corps University Command and Staff College The decision to drop the atomic bomb on Japan was not racially motivated; if the atomic bomb had been available prior to the defeat of Germany, the bomb would have been used in Europe.
  • To B-2 Or Not To B-2: That Is The Question by Major Larry O. Spencer, USAF, Marine Corps University Command and Staff College Once the facts are distinguished from the misinformation, it becomes clear that with some modification to the procurement plan, America desperately needs the B-2 bomber.
