Australia 'misled' over atomic tests


www.news.com.au

BRITAIN deliberately misled Australia about the effects of its nuclear tests at Maralinga and poisoned hundreds of servicemen with its atomic blasts, London's High Court has heard.

The claims were made on the first day of a long-awaited legal battle by more than 800 veterans who are demanding millions of dollars in compensation from Britain's Ministry of Defence (MoD).

The British used Aussie soil and Aussie guinea pigs to study the effects of radiation. They also did it while not informing the Aussies of the true risks involved. They should pay up, big time.

I do agree with one point in the article, why has it taken them around 50 years to start a law suit? It seems kind of strange that they would wait so long.

Yes they should.

The US did the same with servicemen from the Army and Navy when they were doing the Atomic tests in the 40s, and then later on in Vietnam with chemical agents.

This behavior is completely disgusting! It's really appalling how the people that should protect us have no regard for public health and safety whatsoever.

One has to wonder what else they have tested on us, or have been testing...

We will be voting again - further HOWARD rigged the question.

The UK are without doubt the most nefarious nation on earth long term with the US coming in a close second.

Diego Garcia, India..slavery, child workers.....oh forget it the list is endless, generally evil nation.

Yes, it's amazing all the things we put an end to decades before the rest of the world.

You want slavery and child workers? Try Arabia: 400,000 slaves. In 1963.

India? We conquered it from the Mughals, descendants of the Mongols and Timur the Lame. We didn't create pillars of skulls doing it, either.

You don't even know what evil is if you think the British are the worst.

We came and emacipated the slaves, gave women the vote, extended suffrage to everyone and generally sat around being plumby and polite to people far earlier than any of our contemporaries.

You're just jealous of our empire!



[edit]And what sort of idiot characterises an entire nation as "evil", anyway? I mean, that really is just...so so dumb...it makes my head hurt just trying to fathom how dense a comment that is; each time I think "that is the lowest level of stupid this comment reaches" an epipheny hits me and I realise there's a whole new layer of stupid beneath it.

And people still think they can trust goverments




THE US military planned to test deadly nerve gas on Australian soldiers in far north Queensland during the Cold War, declassified documents reveal.

The Defence and Prime Minister's office files show that the US was strongly pushing then prime minister Harold Holt's government in the 1960s to allow tests of two of the deadliest chemical weapons ever developed -- VX and GB, better known as Sarin nerve gas.

Trust us, we are your allies. If this is what our allies want to do to us in secret, what on earth are they doing to the enemy?

Even if we do sever ties with the Commonwealth it won't make much difference, we are so closely aligned with the other Commonwealth countries that our politicians are using the same speaches as Canadian politicians and visa-versa
