Operation Teapot, Sunbeam, & Dominic - US Declassifies 100s Of Nuclear Test Videos To YouTube

In a (now) rare moment of transparency - or perhaps in an odd way, a show of bravado to the rest of the world - more than 250 videos of previously classified US nuclear bomb tests have been uploaded to YouTube this week, providing a fascinating but terrifying glimpse into the United States’ nuclear program.

Digitized and uploaded by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California, RT reports that the videos document secret atomic bomb tests between 1945 and 1962. The organization says that it hopes that the videos will help dissuade humanity from further use of nuclear weapons in the future.

“I think that if we capture the history of this and show what the force of these weapons are and how much devastation they can wreak, then maybe people will be reluctant to use them,” a physicist working for the lab said after a similar batch of videos was released last year.

The videos feature dozens of tests from once-classified chapters in US nuclear history, including Operation Dominic, which consisted of 31 nuclear tests in 1962...

...and Operation Teapot, during which 14 bombs were dropped in Nevada in 1955.

A similar series of tests, known as Operation Sunbeam, was conducted at the Nevada National Security Site in 1962.

The visually stunning but harrowing videos vary in length, although most of them are approximately one minute long and begin at the moment of detonation.

This is not the first time that US nuclear test videos have been released. In December, 62 Cold War era clips were uploaded to YouTube.

"I think that if we capture the history of this and show what the force of these weapons are and how much devastation they can wreak, then maybe people will be reluctant to use them,”

Of course, Hiroshima and Nagasaki weren't enough...
DPRK should have thought of that similar line of reasoning for their testings too.

You thought I was a Hillary supporter because I don't support Trump and that is your weakness not mine. I have never spent a single minute defending, supporting her here or an on other blog. She lost because people like me refused to vote for her, refused our friends pleas that she was the less of two evils. I still don't believe she was a lesser evil just evil.  Trump is Evil too and that is where you and I part ways. If nothing else Trump is way more entertaining than Hillary but that is all. still evil.

Please answer one question for me, if you would be so kind?

Why, pray tell, if communism is so very evil evil eveeeeiiiiilll, then why in the name of all that is good and righteous did American corporations move our entire manufacturing base to a FUCKING COMMUNIST COUNTRY?

Can you answer that for me? Because I'd really, really like to understand why, if communism is so very evil, that the glorious God-fearing capitalists were willing to move OUR ENTIRE MANUFACTURING CAPACITY to a COMMUNIST COUNTRY? Can you clear this up for me? Please?

You mean ... OTHER than the ~ 150+ million people murdered by their own Communist government?  OTHER than that small trifle?

Communism is an Oligarchy - they only profess to give a shit about "equality" so that useful idiots will do anything to get's 'em a free lunch and a cardboard hovel to shit in.  The rise of Communism (and butchering of many millions) was funded by (((bankers))) and supported by industrialists.  Only a *complete* idiot can't see what the real results of Communism are: Abject poverty and total lack of options for the average monkey .... insane wealth and privilege for the well-connected and their grinder monkeys and attack dogs.

Industrialists and financiers were more than happy to move production to a country where, with a few strategic payoffs, they could pay the labor force virtually nothing, pollute the SHIT out of the country, not give a gawd-damn about worker safety .... and keep their profits overseas - thus avoiding taxes.  Communism has worked out wonderfully for them.

It seems that your understanding of Communism has come from questionable sources.

Fair enough Will - at least you talked to me, and I can respect that. You see I have a real problem with the Democrats these days and the threats they make, and the street violence that is going on as we speak.

I lived through a civil war, barely, and it was caused by Social Democrats, there was much bloodshed. It left an lasting mark on me. The same things are happening here, thus I warn people of the danger that lies ahead for us all. I tell let people know I will stand up and defend the Constitution. I dislike what our gov't has become, an Oligarchy. We need to restore true limited gov't and free markets, not this march to communism - National Healthcare and free handouts, also this "Free" trade, nothing in life is for free, somebody is paying for it - you and me!

We can agree to disagree, and move on.

Thanks for your candor.

Chicago is near the locale of previous such activity in past civilizations... I could look it up if you're interested... as those nanodiamond type crystals that result are a little different than those caused by cometary activity and its associated genetic affects.... just more tidbits of history that isn't discussed in the MSM.... like most history of life here in 'purgatory'... life on earth after the 'fall'... those rumors of 'Atlantis' and other ancient civilizations aren't made up, just covered up.... another such site of this activity is around the old civilization that once was around India... that civilization was a lot older as well... which isn't surprising seeing all the culture that came out of it eons ago... as well as the later passing Aryans as they moved around the south and up to the north as the ice cleared.

We really should separate such large cities from the state they are in... as the rest of Illinois isn't part of Chicago, and Chicago doesn't pay attention to the rest of the state... just through Mike Madigan and his Chicago cronies.... indebting the state to pay off Chicago's corrupt 'bills'... same game in DC on a larger scale.... I find it interesting that Madigan doesn't have the ego or balls to seek 'higher office'.... to gain more corruption... maybe he doesn't like all that competition... he's satisfied just where he is here in the former land of Lincoln?

Then the jews saved the world.

Wars between industrial powers stopped with the development of the atomic bomb. Only proxy wars went on after that. Now the era of proxy wars is coming to an end, to be replaced with economic ones.

The march of peace!

WW2 was carried out in order to create Israel.

See e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haavara_Agreement

"The Haavara Agreement (Hebrew: הסכם העברה Translit.: heskem haavara Translated: "transfer agreement") was an agreement between Nazi Germany and Zionist German Jews signed on 25 August 1933. The agreement was finalized after three months of talks by the Zionist Federation of Germany, the Anglo-Palestine Bank (under the directive of the Jewish Agency) and the economic authorities of Nazi Germany. It was a major factor in making possible the migration of approximately 60,000 German Jews to Palestine in 1933–1939"

The Hollowhoax is also used to scare Jews into migrating to Israel.

The Jews will start WW3 for some reason or other, probably this time involving migration to Ukraine: "Leaked report: Israel acknowledges Jews in fact Khazars; Secret plan for reverse migration to Ukraine" - http://blogs.timesofisrael.com/leaked-report-israel-acknowledges-jews-i…
