    Atomic Soldiers

    I thought this was an excellent video. I can't help but have a lot of respect and sympathy for these fellows.

    " If you are on the wrong road progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road and in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man. There is nothing progressive about being pig-headed and refusing to admit a mistake. And I think if you look at the present state of the world it's pretty plain that humanity has been making some big mistake. We're on the wrong road. And if that is so we must go back. Going back is the quickest way on. ---C. S. Lewis

    I remember during the 1950s they would put soldiers in trenches to test the effects of radiation near the atomic bomb tests at Nevada Test Site. Also I remember them building a simulated town and having soldiers in the buildings. This was publicized on the radio and in the newspapers.

    Didn't give the poor bastards any choice either. Pure evil.
