Chapter 12 the Just War and Weapons of Mass Destruction Discussion

International law expressly prohibits the use of both chemical and biological weapons. The US has agreed to a policy of “no first use” of chemical weapons, and a policy of “no use” – even in retaliation – regarding biological weapons. Suppose, however, that the US could develop a biological weapon that would make soldiers sick for 3 to 5 days without any long-term effects. What would be the legal and moral considerations governing the use of such weapons? Explain fully your answer.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
