What could be done is a virus. Someone makes it, hides in an isolated and air-tight facility, and waits a few years. By this time the world will have perished.
Anybody ever read Stephen King's "The Stand"? Much similar to that except that it would not be an accident.
The United States maintains nuclear weapons to "deter, dissuade, and defeat" a range of immediate and potential conventional, nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons threats. Still, the United States has pledged not to use nuclear weapons against non-nuclear-weapon states that are members of the nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT), except if attacked by such a state associated or allied with a nuclear-armed state. At the same time, successive administrations have maintained a policy of "strategic ambiguity" by refusing to rule out nuclear weapons use in response to biological or chemical weapons attacks.
Either way, I have to agree, the world will not ever be ruled by means of force again. I do believe that someone might make the world totally dependant on them from a economical perspective and through this power, rule the world.
