This collection of nuclear weapons resources aims to provide an overview of each of the key areas of nuclear policy and offer a general introduction to those who may be unfamiliar with the finer points of the issue. While such a topic lends itself to excessive reliance on technical details and minutia, this list will instead focus on summary websites that convey the necessary information without dwelling on esoteric scientific data. Certainly, some of the websites will provide technical details for those who may seek them, but the priority has been placed on easily digested summaries. The key issues that are considered within the ambit of this project are international law and treaties, nuclear programs of the eight declared nuclear states, ballistic missile defence, and the physical and medical effects of nuclear weapons.

The Iraq War has been one of the largest geo-political events of the last decade. The 2002 decision by the United States to invade in will have repercussions that will be felt by peoples all around the word for many more decades. Debate about the decision to wage war was heated. Debate about the way was then fought has been just as passionate. Because of these schisms in opinion, a guide is needed. People need all the information they can get to properly make up their minds about the many different dimensions of the Iraq war. Was there any good reason to suspect Iraq was a threat to the rest of the planet post invasion? How much of a role did the United States play in the bloody aftermath of the invasion? These questions and many more the war brings up are difficult. Some of the sources here will attempt to answer such questions through commentary and analysis, but all of the sources provide information that will help the reader to make up their own mind about the issues surrounding the Iraq War.
