ABSTRACT
The article reports on the refusal of U.S. President Richard Nixon to use chemical and biological agents to match the Soviet Union's armaments. It states that Nixon announced that the U.S. would never use germ warfare such as psittacosis (parrot fever) and ordered the existing stocks of deadly toxins destroyed. It also mentions that the U.S. retains a nuclear arsenal big enough to deter potential enemies despite the elimination of the biological stocks.
