October 16th 1964, First Chinese nuclear test (34 min Chinese film overdubed in English)
The nuclear monopoly and nuclear tyrany of the US imperialists, and revisionists, have been thoughroughly bankrupted. Their criminal attempt
to block our people from grasping nuclear weapons has been thoughroughly smashed.
We have the spiritual atomic bomb which it is impossible for the enemy to aquire, and the physical atomic bomb.
The general message from Chairman Mao is that fear mongering about nukes is overrated. Speaking on behalf of the Chinese Peoples' Liberation Army he
says that 'we will not use nukes first' but that 'it's not that bad.' The video shows the army, and animal testing. Like you've never seen it
The Movie was put out in 1966 and references the just-begining escalation in Vietnam. It's quite a time capsule.
So what do you think. Should we fear to use nukes?
Personally I'm square in the President's camp on this one. It's not about fear. We just won't use them. For instance during the first gulf war I
think it was a major error of judgement for Sadam Hussein to fire Scud Missiles at Israel. What if one of them had accidentally landed on the Dome of
The Rock. Who would Islam blame then. I think we are in the age of precision weapons.
The next thing I'm waiting for us to grow out of is the age of assasination.

We use depleted uranium all of the time, including in Libya right now. Also, "precision" weapons will never be used, battles are business. Why do
you think NATO has bombed the opposition in Libya multiple times with "precision" Tomahawk cruise missiles? Why do you think Spanish banks have been
paying for cluster bombs to be dropped?
Ok so you know that I'm not a doctor.
But, in this video it shows the soldiers pulling off their....NBC suits?
They then pour the sweat out of them.
It appears they sweated about a gallon or 2.
Is it physically possible for a 150 - 200 Lb man to sweat that much in 1 day and live?
I never really paid attention to how much i sweated, but I would think something like that would be heat stroke material.
