"I picked this book up at the local library because I found the title very catchy. The blurb on the back of the book starts with:

"All weapons, no matter how complex, eventually fall into the wrong hands.."

This novel is mainly about international terrorism, about the possibilities, about what could happen in the very near future, should world leaders refuse to acknowledge the dangers of creating more nuclear weapons, or more fondly referred to as “Weapons of Mass Destruction”, WMD in the book.

The central figure is a guy called Jason, who has been sending out warnings to the authorities about terrorism, and about how completely unready we all are should there be an attack."

The above review is from https://sushublog.wordpress.com/2009/07/10/the-crime-is-stupi

The essence of the book is that it is an extended Socratic discussion between the 'enlightened' prime protagonist and ignorant others who will, or will not, listen, on the dangers of WMD development and possession.

The argument is that "All weapons, no matter how complex, eventually fall into the wrong hands" and therefore 'we' ought not develop WMDs for fear of this (eventually and inevitiably) happening Please click here to ask a question
