4 Asymmetric Warfare With the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union, the focus of military planning has shifted from the possibility of a major war against a peer adversary to that of regional wars, ranging from major theatre wars against nonpeers to smaller scale contingencies. At the same time, there has been growing concern about the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction following a burst of chemical weapons proliferation in the 1980s and the near-brush with Iraqi biological weapons in 1992.

In the early stages of World War I, the British examined their own chemical technology for battlefield use. Their first investigations also covered tear agents, but later they put their effort towards more toxic chemicals. Nevertheless, the first large-scale use of chemicals during World War I was initiated by heavily industrialized Germany. Three thousand 105mm shells filled with the lung irritant dianisidine chlorosulfate were fired at British troops by the Germans near Neuve Chapelle on October 27th 1914, but with no visible effect.

In 1994 a Japanese religious cult, Aum Shinrikyo, released nerve agents in a residual area of Matsumoto, Japan, and in 1995 they used sarin in a crowded Tokyo subway [1, 19, 20]. This is an example of how the use of chemical warfare agents by terrorists could be a significant threat to the civilian population. Although the public interest in and fear of the danger of chemical warfare terrorism was high after the Aum Shinrikyo attacks, we should be aware that in reality more people die worldwide in industrial accidents with toxic chemicals, especially in the third world, than in chemical attacks.
