    That was back when the US was completely in love with nuclear weapons.  We had nuclear land mines, nuclear demolition charges, nuclear artillery shells, and we even worked for a time on a nuclear hand grenade.

    Heck, we even had plans for "peaceful nuclear explosions" that would dig out reservoirs, excavate canals, level mountains for farmland, and all sorts of wonderful things.

    Those were silly times.

      for those purposes & their populations suffered the consequences.

      Chernobyl wasn't the first big nuclear radiation exposure over there, it was just the first time they made a show if cleaning it up to Western journalists. The countries downwind weren't going to let it pass unnoticed.

      The hubris is just breath taking.

      Something that doesn't make good sense, makes bad sense. That means someone is being deliberately hurtful & selfish. Look for motives behind actions & words.
