With the advancement of science for the benefit of mankind, the darker side has also developed. The human race being pugnacious in nature has been fighting each other from their very inception. They have slowly developed machines or instruments not only to hurt other humankind, but also to kill. Slowly with the advancement of science they have graduated from single killing weapons to weapons of mass destruction. Once dynamite was developed to make making tunnels or mines easier. But the boon became a life taking explosive during the course of war, and it has continued through ages. Nuclear bombs have been developed and are in the process of further refinement to lessen weight and increase their killing power. Today war-fares are designed to kill not only enemy soldiers but also civilians. Destroying cities, establishments, industries and paralyzing life has become the modern day norm of warfare. These are commonly termed as WMD or Weapons of Mass Destruction. Weapons of the future are deadlier in their capabilities of destruction and lethal abilities. WMDs can be broadly classified into nuclear weapons, chemical warfare weapons and biological warfare weapons.
