Terrorist Could Use Insects,or Bats, or Even Balloons

Yes the gist of this article in The Telegraph is true, terrorists could use insects to spread disease. Unfortunately for them the logistics of this kind of attack are horrible and there are much easier ways to do this. In WWII the U.S. was going to use "bat bombs" against Japan and then realized it was a lot more effective to use B-29. The Japanese launched paper balloons carrying incendiary warheads and managed to kill an Oregon family. These kind of things look good on paper but are in the end ineffective.
