[quote:ProspeKtor:MV8yMDc0Mjc5XzM0OTE2MTI4X0Q5NzJGREFD] [quote:Anonymous Coward 29269292:MV8yMDc0Mjc5XzM0OTE2MDY0X0I1NkExRUI0] [quote:ProspeKtor:MV8yMDc0Mjc5XzM0OTE2MDIwX0Q2NkIxRkE5] It was not a nuclear explosion. Read the article. "They use chemical explosives to blow up bits of nuclear materials designed to stop just short of erupting into a nuclear chain reaction, also known as a criticality." They are testing to make sure the stockpiles of nuclear materials are not going to blow up or do something unexpected. The genie is out of the box so we have responsible scientists doing what is necessary to prevent it from freeing itself. Ironic this is condemned by Japan on Pearl Harbor day [at least still in my time zone]. Sad that what they did to the US necessitated us letting that genie out. Peace... but probably not gonna happen for a while anyway. [/quote] oh they're just blowing up nuclear material into the atmosphere......thats ok then [/quote] It was deep underground. Not saying that I like that scenario either but they are trying to understand this thing they created 65 years ago. Maybe they are a bit worried about what they are seeing in the stockpiles. Let's seek to understand and not be so quick to condemn. Peace... at least on a personal level. [/quote]

Iran has strongly condemned the US for carrying out a nuclear test in Nevada this week, saying the move threatens world peace and shows a hypocritical set of double standards set by Washington when it comes to nuclear research.
The Iranian Foreign Ministry said the Wednesday detonation proves that US foreign policy relies heavily on the use of nuclear weapons, disregarding UN calls for global disarmament, PressTV reports.
The experiment also drew criticism from Japan, with Hiroshima Mayor Kazumi Matsui wondering why the Obama administration carried out the test, despite saying he would “seek a nuclear-free world.”
The test proves that the US “could use nuclear weapons anytime,” said Hirotami Yamada, who heads the Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Survivors Council.
On Friday it was announced that the Nevada National Security Site had successfully detonated plutonium in a deep shaft Wednesday to test the safety and effectiveness of US nuclear weapons, National Nuclear Security Administration officials said.
