  Biological warfare - Encyclopedia.WorldSearch   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Biological warfare, also known as germ warfare, is the use of any organism (bacteria, virus or other disease-causing organism) or toxin found in nature, as a weapon of war.
However, the consensus among military analysts is that except in the context of bioterrorism, biological warfare is militarily of little use.
As a strategic weapon, biological warfare is again militarily problematic, because unless it is used to poison enemy civillian towns, it is difficult to prevent the attack from spreading to either allies or to the attacker and a biological warfare attack invites immediate massive retaliation, usually in the same form.
