    Here is a piece of shit from Kuwait stating how to kill 300K Americans in an anthrax attack! He is calling terrorist great people. Does anyone find it ironic that we went to war from these assholes? The ungratefulness is amazing.

    Kuwaiti prof: 330,000 dead from 4 pounds of anthrax

    Must be a load of total Bullshit.

    You cannot kill people with Anthrax in 60 minutes.

    Actually, you could!

    Mightypeons totally crazy proposition for killing 3 hundred thousand Americans in one hour with Anthrax:

    1. Build a n(many) very big furnace.
    2. Fire up the Furnace with Bacillus Anthrax which is inflammable.
    3. Try to push 300.000 Americans into that furnace in one hour. Getting to do that may require a lot of Furnaces.
    4. If you have a brain, use wood instead of Anthrax :D

    Apart from that, as a Biological weapon Antrhax is quite "meh", small pox would propably be more potent.

    With Anthrax, you have a very limited amount of human to human infectiousity, in addition, while preexisting civilian immunisations can likely be bypassed, key personal can be prophylactically treated with Ciprofloxacine.

    However, it has several strong points, it is easier to obtain than small pox, and the first symptons of Lung Anthrax are very unspecific, this may lead to doctors in the target country beeing swarmed by falsely alarmed patients.
    Also, since Anthrax does not spread a lot on its own, the perpetrators are relativly safe from their own country beeing infected (as opposed to Yersinia Pesties or Small Pox).
    Last but not least, Anthrax can stay in the soil/flats etc. for a long amount of time, and its out of body reservoirs are difficult to get rid off. That makes it a bad weapon for a nation state interested in winning a war (Since the target nation would be damn pissed for a very long time, and if you "conquer" territories where you used Anthrax previously you nicely shoot yourself in the foot) but a good weapon for a terrorist.

    On the other hand, Anthrax Bacilli are easily detectable inside the human body.

    If someone uses Anthrax, he will be hard pressed to reach a body count anywhere near 300K. An infection will likely be localised since Anthrax doesnt spread a lot on its own, and the target country can react with specific antidotes.
