Radiation: USA vs. North Korea?
17 Oct 2006
N.Korea has done one maybe 2 underground nuclear tests whereas the US Govt.has done hundreds,even thousands of atomic bomb tests since the 1940's and many of them were above ground and even in the open ocean.(This doesn't include the U.S.'s atomic bombing of the civilian populations in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.)

World leaders are aprarently shocked and outraged because North Korea tested a nuclear bomb in an underground bunker.But how much "radiation" has N.Korea put into our atmosphere compared with the USA?

Where do you start? N.Korea has done one maybe 2 underground nuclear tests whereas the US Govt.has done hundreds of atomic bomb tests since the 1940's and many of them were above ground and even in the open ocean.(This doesn't include the U.S.'s atomic bombing of the civilian populations in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.) Then too theres all that radiation from DU (depleted uranium) that the US Military has spread in the atmosphere,by way of its bombs and shells, all over Iraq and the Middle East and even Europe.So world leaders are shocked and vexed at North Korea but if America does much,much worse,they get a free pass from these same concerned leaders?
