The nuclear tests in Nevada are an outrage. They serve no useful purpose whatsoever except to jack up our President's fantasies of obliterating the Commies.
They are detrimental to the environment. They engender hostility.
The argument that we have to set off nuclear bombs is rather specious in face of the fact that the Soviets have halted testing, and I haven't heard any other argument or excuse for this unconscious behavior emanating from the White House. I can only conclude that our country has fallen into the hands of fascists whose primary concern is military superiority.
