- Inching Away From Armageddon: Destroying the U.S. Chemical Weapons Stockpile (pdf file) More than a decade ago, the United States committed to destroying its stockpile of aging chemical weapons. Milestones for measuring progress under the Chemical Weapons Convention called for all possessor states to destroy 45% of their stockpiles – without endangering humans or the environment – by 2004. However, delays born of technical obstacles, community concerns, and program management issues mean that the U.S. will not meet that goal. This new Stimson Center report, Inching Away from Armageddon: Destroying the US Chemical Weapons Stockpile, offers a brief history and explanation of the technical processes, and a snapshot of current progress of the U.S. chemical demilitarization program.

The "Posters showing measures against atomic, chemical and bacteriological warfare"-series, published in 1971 by the General Department of the Chinese People's Liberation Army, is an example. It is presented here in full, including a so-called head and tail, and the stirring preamble written by Mao Zedong as it was required in those days. A number of posters are moreover accompanied by relevant Mao-quotes (in red).

- Gassed Painting by John Singer Sargent -- American painter, 1918, Imperial War Museum, Oil on canvas. "While at the casualty station he witnessed an orderly leading a group of soldiers that had been blinded by mustard gas. He used this as a subject for a naturalist allegorical frieze depicting a line of young men with their eyes bandaged. Gassed soon became one of the most memorably haunting images of the war."

The Special Companies of the Royal Engineers were formed to develop the British response. By 1918, gas was used both offensively and defensively, delivered by a range of sophisticated techniques.
