A Thoughtful, Analytical Approach to NGO Security

The Real Weapon of Mass Destruction

The Al Jazeera network has an interesting story on the the real weapon of mass destruction, the AK-47. If you've worked in a conflict zone you've probably seen and heard it. If you are an aid worker you've probably seen the results of its use. It is the weapon of choice for revolutionaries, dictators, drug lords, and child soldiers.



Part two includes an interview with former child soldier Ishmael Beah, author of "A Long Way Gone".
