Taliban now using WMD's against ground troops

Biological warfare is classified as a form of WMD. The Taliban is now using small scale biological weapons in roadside bombs in the Helmand Province. Apparently they are burying dirty needles and other biologically contaminated medical "sharps" in and around their roadside bombs in an effort to make it harder for UXO teams to defuse them safely and to become deadly shrapnel if the bombs detonate. Reportedly several UXO teams have been injured by these used needles but it is unknown at this time if any have been infected. Kevlar "raid gloves" are being issued to the teams in an effort to protect them from the danger.
