Creating safe & effective machines of destruction
The Energy Department has confirmed the United States has carried out a subcritical nuclear experiment at an underground test site in Nevada on Thursday (local time).
The test was aimed at gathering ''scientific data that provides crucial information to maintain the safety and reliability of... nuclear weapons without having to conduct underground nuclear tests,'' the department said. end quote.
They've decided to CARRY OUT A SUBCRITICAL NUCLEAR EXPERIMENT at an UNDERGROUND test site.
They say this and they say that, and if you trust our starry-eyed defense department, everything's okay.
Their intentions are jingoistic in the here and now, and flirt with apocalyptic all the time. Trust them? No, I don't think so.
Yet this is not conducting an underground nuclear test, they say.
I think this is just another equivocation from those who've mastered the craft.
