There is another quote relevant to this conversation.

I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones. ~Albert Einstein


That was spoken with the assumption that increasing technological advances will yield weapons with more destructive capacities (which they have). But remember, countries would think twice when dealing with nuclear arsenals.

The only weapon I can think of that can inflict massive damage without inviting a quick retaliatory strike would be a biological weapon, since diseases are harder to identify as weaponized. And even that might not be such a good idea to deploy, with travelling citizens and all that.

Yes, but there are also nuclear disarmament treaties as well; and it isn't a well-kept secret that most developed countries and some developing countries have arsenals right? And a developed nation, with the trust its gained (or a developing nation with the relative lack of attention paid to it and its sometimes rugged terrain) can easily conceal development of biological arsenals.

Mutually Assured Destruction. Even with a smaller payload, the risk is too great for them to consider bringing these out in a war.

True. What I meant was as countries become technologically more advanced with equipment, the smaller bombs they will use. No one will use a mega ton bomb. They'd much rather prefer to use a kiloton bomb to destroy targets tactically. But you are right, this will never happen for fear of backlash and panic.

Quote:
Well, yes they would cause damage, but unless the propulsion systems are working properly, the damage will be on the country's land rather than the enemy's.


It will work. The general notion that Russian systems aren't good enough is solely public opinion created by propaganda machinery within the US during the cold war. It continues to this day. Both Russia and the US have advanced Aviation and military industries. And both are capable of producing world class equipment.

Biological arsenals can be developed only by countries with an extensive Biological and Chemical research facilities. It cannot be built under a mountain. Therefore countries developing them have to be militarily strong and economically pretty strong.

That is just a multi barrel rocket launcher. It can be countered. Today every major power has both endo atmospheric and exo atmospheric anti missile defence systems. Its been proven that these missiles can be shot down. Plus these multi barrel rocket launchers are just like Artillery with 30-40 km range. They cant possibly do more damage than a nuke. You cant even compare them.

Meh, there's still the issue of MAD. And anyways, if you're a powerful country and you want a country to go down nowadays, you cut off trade with them and watch their economy gradually collapse.

Then that's when developed countries come into play. Anyways, you don't need much equipment as far as local infection is concerned. All you need is to isolate a pathogen and store it in a fragile container to break over a hard surface (airborne) or a water supply (waterborne).
