Wanted to provide a quick overview of WMD's down to a civilian/personal level.  This video is significantly edited (since I had to chop it down to 10 minutes for Youtube) but provides an excellent overview.  Please click the READ MORE link below to read the article and find with video link.

Weapons of Mass Destruction

(WMD) CBERNE

 by Jessie Indracusin

Understanding this is not the typical discussion matter we cover, I felt it was an important discussion matter since it does give another reason to maintain skills based on external threats.  This also helps you get an inside view of these threats from Tiger Valley, taught by Kevin Ross who works on the CBERNE Team for the Dallas-Fort Worth area.  This edited down video gives you a good taste of how to best prepare and understand the real threats versus Hollywood perceived threats.

I have included all of the links to relevant websites mentioned in the video for reference.  I hope these are all very helpful and helps everyone seriously re-think their disaster preparedness.
