US conducts fresh Nuclear Test in Nevada Desert Facility Dec. 6th.

category international | anti-war / imperialism | other press author Monday December 10, 2012 04:47author by lefty Report this post to the editors

US conducts a nuclear test on Dec 6th while continuing to demonise Iran and impose ever more crippling sanctions on the Iranian state which mainly just harm civilians, on account of it's non existent nuclear weapons program. This despite Iran's full compliance with the terms of the NPT, unlike the US itself or it's dog wagging tail in the middle east, Israel. This brings blatant US hypocrisy regarding Iran to a new level.

Evidence points to the fact that the US held an underground nuclear test in it's Nevada desert facility on Dec. 6th 2012. The US claims it was a subcritical test hence it was "ok" However it is not possible to verify the veracity of these claims due to security restrictions. Is this possibly the wedge in the door for a renewed arms race?

Quote:
"The U.S. took a long ‘break’ from subcritical testing from 2006 to 2010 and little was heard then about the programs of other countries known to have a subcritical testing program – China, Russia, and France. Since 2010, the U.S. has ‘shot’ off three subcritical tests and has plans in late 2012 for ‘Pollux,’ a ‘first-of-a-kind demonstration’ combining a ‘scaled subcritical experiment’ with plutonium-239. Pollux is called a subcritical nuclear experiment because it will be held underground and use larger-than-normal (but nevertheless ‘small’) amounts of plutonium-239 fuel than used in ordinary hydrodynamic tests. However, it is the first such ‘scaled’ subcritical test by the U.S. because it will involve a scale model of a warhead primary (using plutonium-239 nuclear material). This is provocative because Pollux will be the closest thing to a full-scale nuclear test that the U.S. has carried out since its last nuclear explosion 20 years ago"
