Weapons of mass destruction are those weapons which destroy large cities and cause major human losses. They have been present throughout the history of human civilization. They are the best example of using civilizational technological accomplishments for harmful purposes and against human civilization. Although their use was banned by many international conventions and declarations, the threats and risks did not diminish. Safety is the key precondition of survival, activity and progress of man, country and society. It is one of the basic life functions and social needs and it represents the need for preserving the values and states which are considered of vital importance. On the other side, securitization is seen as an extreme version of politicization, i.e. a question which is above politics and its settled procedures and rules of resolution. But the threat which terrorism causes today, progressively diminishes the safety of all. Instead of further human progress, the progress of terrorism followed with a perspective of a new form of the so-called "asymmetrical war"(use of nuclear, chemical or biological weapons, demolition of refineries and industrial centers and the rest). Thus have been demonstrated in the paper the recent cases of use of weapons of mass destruction by terrorist organizations, but also by countries: the question of Iranian and North Korean nuclear programs/weapons and the Sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway.
