NUKE TESTING in NEVADA
LAS VEGAS SURVIVORS JOIN JAPAN SURVIVORS IN CALL FOR AN END TO NUCLEAR POWER.
Between the years 1945 and 1992 the United States government (like they care about you?) conducted 1,030 nuclear tests. Two hundred ten (210) were classified as atmospheric tests, 815 were detonated underground, and 5 were exploded underwater. One hundred (100) atmospheric tests and 804 underground tests were detonated at the Nevada Test Site (NTS).

It all happened just 70 miles north west of Las Vegas (the wind blows from West to East, actually the most dangerous radioactivity initially goes North then carries East by the wind, thus Utah is filled with radiation too). Many people died of Leukemia; and the US Government denied everything.
NOW the US Government is burying nuclear waste near the Colorado River (within 90 miles), the water source for Las Vegas, Arizona, New Mexico, and Southern California, including Los Angeles and San Diego and water for much of California's farmland crops, and even Mexico?).
At one point U.S. Senator Harry Reid from Nevada (Dem) was trying to do something about it with a Petition, but the results are very unclear. Some of what was written seems to imply but not clearly state that they have stopped, but the unclearness seems to imply that something is up and it is still continuing today This Page: http://archure.net/liberty/nukenevada.html

These people all probably died of Leukemia (or ?), but for certain, many people in Las Vegas died of leukemia. Around 1995 I found a book in a Las Vegas Library, written by a writer for the newspaper (Sun or RJ), a chronology of Las Vegas and famous stars, but interlaced with reports of sheep with rashes, and some found dead at the side of the road, North of Las Vegas, and people with rashes, and people dying of leukemia, and finally the author died, the last chapter written by the son or daughter. I came back for the book many times (Library on Charleston), but it seems to have disappeared.
NOW the US Government is burying nuclear waste near the Colorado River (80 miles), the water source for Las Vegas, Arizona, New Mexico, and Southern California, including Los Angeles and San Diego and water for much of California's farmland crops, and Mexico.
NOW this is where they are NOW storing Nuclear Waste Underground, just around 80 miles north west of The COLORADO RIVER, which supplies DRINKING WATER for Arizona, Las Vegas, San Diego, Los Angeles, and much of Southern California. So in case any of these barrels leak and get into the water table, but, they say its buried in SOLID ROCK (and they know for sure, there is no place it could leak), so the government says IT'S ALL OK, DON'T WORRY, WE WOULD NOT HURT OUR OWN PEOPLE (would they?).

ARCHURE asks WHY?
Why did the federal government do all this testing just 50 miles west of Las Vegas, when they all knew that the wind blows from West to East?
Maybe it was a move against the acceptance of prostitution (worlds oldest profession) in Nevada? Maybe the First Lady ordered IKE to NUKE NEVADA? (maybe Ike got caught?). Maybe? Its just a wild guess. Do consider, lack of proper education in the social sciences amongst the US Government, and also consider that famous psychologist Dr Ruth Westheimer says that legalized prostitution is GOOD, and sex is GOOD. Or maybe it was the Gambling? Perhaps some top Air Force General at Nellis AFB in Las Vegas, lost money gambling, then got promoted to the Pentagon?
Or, perhaps someone did not like the Navajo or Hopi tribes just East (as the wind blows) of the Test Site? (a bit further, but still deadly), and/or tribes in Nevada?

WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?
Even today, the US Governments lack of concern over the social sciences shows up real bad. Look what happened when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, and the government would not go in a rescue people, its terrible (and I just cant forget, seeing all those people on top of the Twin Towers, and not a single helicopter came to rescue anyone. In May of 2008, a great Earthquake hit China, and within a couple of hours, China announced that they were taking special care to protect the Social Structure of the Chinese people, after the quake (good concern, and maybe next time, they should not build 3 story schools, I remember as a kid in Hollywood, we had Bomb Drills and Earthquake Drills, we were instructed to get underneath the table, in a fetal position, and put our hands over our necks, our old 2 story school could have easily collapsed, it was real shaky, I got in trouble over leaving the building during quakes, I was considered a bad boy for leaving during quakes). DUCK AND COVER, kiss your ass goodbye.
I think they should not allow more than 2 story buildings in Earthquake Zones, and NO mobile homes (trailers) in Tornado or Hurricane zones. Who cares? The Government? (sorry, score that one wrong).

And it also happened in New Mexico
