Welcome to Code Red
Welcome to Code Red. This website explores one of the major issues that haunts every human being, Weapons of Mass Destruction. This site is primarily designed for high school students or the average citizen who would like to explore more about the destructive weapons which carry on the haunting prospects of the end of the human race and even the world. Here we explore the major weapons of mass destruction, their history, and how they play a role in today's world. Join us as we explore the scientific background of the NBC's - nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons - as well as discover the global political reverberations that these weapons have caused. Many of these destructive weapons were created for use in war, but nowadays the predominant fear is the acquisition and use of weapons of mass destruction by terrorists.
