A redoubtable matter
The first weapons known in the military confrontations were pointed sticks used by European warriors with accuracy and skill.

Later, some cut stones in the form of axes emerged. This weapon was common in Asia, Africa and Europe.

Then, Europeans made stones spears with form of axes.

Over time, African people made arrows. When European persons came to the New Continent, they discovered that native people used bow and arrow with a great skill.

Afterwards, the first swords emerged in Mesopotamia and then, bronze shields; in Europe the war floats.

Greeks and Carthaginians introduced the catapult, machine to throw stones.

The crossbow, weapon to shoot arrows, arose in China.

With the on-going technological development, automatic rifles, machine guns, grenades, tanks, the atomic bomb, rockets, missiles, deadly gases and drones have been developed; and the war industry continues its destructive march, and creates every day more sophisticated instruments of death and extermination.
