    If it doesn’t scare hell out of you I can’t imagine what would.?

  • flax9999lp 6 years ago

    Well,i guess 99,99 of the soldiers who where send in the radiated zone died
    of cancer 😛 for reals some times im just thinking “MURRICA! WHAT YA DOIN?”
    and i bet they are not the only people who send their soldiers in radiated
    zone cause they where to dumb to FIRST find out what nuclear radiation
    does,and then make tests :P?

    The fat jew, Henry Kissinger said: “Military people are just dumb, stupid
    animals, to be used to implement foreign policy.” This film is a perfect
    example of that kind of thinking. And the USMC hasn’t been accused of
    producing rocket scientists, only gung-ho cannon fodder. The Army either. I
    know an Army Col. personally, who’s dying a slow death from exposure in
    Iraq to depleted uranium, after being ordered to help clean out a destroyed
    Iraqi vehicle. I’d have told my superiors to go to hell & served time in
    the stockade, before committing suicide that way.?

    The government was using those stupid soldiers to test their weapons! Look
    at them, no mask, no protective gears!?

  • YokePoker1761 6 years ago

    My guess is everyone of poor bastards are dead.?

  • CrimsonNineTail 6 years ago

    Watching this for a History in the American West Class.?

    GUNG HO! GUNG HO! GUNG HO! Attack the mushroom cloud, Gyrenes. And police
    up the area & pick up all the cigarette butts on the way over there.
    OOORAH! USMC===Unlimited Shit, & Mass Confusion?

  • motormusic1 6 years ago

    oh my God. Those soldiers surely all were exposed to lethal radiation

  • Ludvig Frestadius 6 years ago

    This was the first nuke ever detonated.
    The soldiers know:the nuke was radioactive.
    But they didnt know its should be so big and
    A storm comed to them.
    Some commented the died by cancer.
    Ye,because the storm was radioactive.and maked them sick?

  • TheDutchGameCinema 6 years ago

    i think it would be better if this never was invented?

  • Mario Gonzalez 6 years ago

    Wouldn’t there be radiation??

    From where was the missile fired??

    Why do they even have guns??

  • slug Face 6 years ago

    besides penicillin nuclear weapons were some of the greatest inventions of
    the 20th century Stop wankin’ off for a sec and realize these weapons made
    World War obsolete and have kept the peace since 1945? yer all a buncha
    pansies not fit to be used as cannon fodder ?

  • youcheator 6 years ago

    Wow no protection, no nothing. Even the Chinese had some goddamn courtesy
    to equip their soldiers with some gas masks and protective gears. I thought
    the Americans weren’t so stupid. ?

  • Ajdin Softic 6 years ago

    I think the soldiers are all dead. There is Uranium which is very
    dangerous. Think about whats happened in Tschernobyl or Hiroshima/Nagasaki?

  • Jonathan Arena 6 years ago

    anybody know what the approximate yield was on this detonation? I’m
    curious how small this is compared to hiroshima, etc…?

    I’ve been researching these guys for about a year now, because I’m
    connected with those representing one’s VA claim.
    The story goes: thousands of volunteers throughout the country over the
    decade of the 50s were brought to Camp Desert Rock to participate in troop
    exercises with the atomic bomb testings. They were told they would be too
    far from the blast, and that the military had taken every necessary
    precaution. Dosimetry badges were not given to everyone, but only a certain
    number of the soldiers. Nearly all the engineers and other various
    observers had badges.
    They were told to dig trenches some 5-20 miles from the point of
    detonation, then to stay down under the surface until the radiation wave
    passed. Then, to get up out of the trench and march toward it. This was
    meant to train personnel how to hold your shit together on the battlefield
    during one of these events. It also served to find the psychological
    effects of having to engage an enemy after the bomb goes off.
    Anyway, a few things happened. One is, that even though they did not suffer
    the extreme heat from the initial radiation wave, the shockwave that blew
    over them a few moments later blew radiated dust and air on and into their
    bodies. Also, when they charged the stem of the blast, radiation rained
    down from the cloud, especially if the wind shifted toward them, as it did
    in Shot Harry.
    This caused long-term effects, including cancers, that did not surface
    until some years later. The Atomic Energy Commission and DOD continued to
    say that exposure to nuclear fallout was “low-level” at best, and to deny
    any responsibility. Finally in 1990, Congress recognized the need to
    compensate those who have been exposed to the radiation, either through
    working at the site, like these guys, or by living downwind, such as St.
    George, Utah and others (google RECA). But the list of diseases that you
    must have is pretty limited, and the compensation given isn’t much. The
    agencies also continue to deny that the radiation exposure is sufficient to
    ever cause these diseases. I think anybody watching the video can conclude
    My biggest concern is the VA, who regularly denies veterans’ claims of
    their cancers and other illnesses, because either the veteran can’t prove
    he was there (many of the records were destroyed in the St Louis fire) or
    is getting a bogus “dose reconstruction” just because there were so few
    dosimetry badges. In many cases, the record of those badges can’t be found,
    and the ones that can show sufficient exposure to radiation. In any case,
    this is one more example of the VA finding any excuse to let our soldiers
    die of very unnatural causes instead of taking responsibility for the
    promise they made to take care of us. ?

    Anybody know what those streaks are in the sky to the left of the
    explosion? I’ve always wondered. ?

  • Gavin Perkowski 6 years ago

    The nuclear bomb was important because of the science behind it. Today the
    same technology is used to produce power in nuclear power plants. ?
