Just Testing

Two nuclear bombings and an incredible number of nuclear tests between 1945 and 1998 with the emerging of new nuclear powers. The test on 9 October 2006 by North Korea has obviously not been taken seriously, neither has been that in September 1977 which was conducted by apartheid regime South Africa probably in collaboration with Israel, the so-called Vela Incident.

    Today 70 years ago, the first atomic bomb had been dropped on the Japanese city of Hiroshima killing 70 or 80k humans at once. Three days later, Nagasaki was bombed by another atomic bomb. Both bombs were commissioned by the US American government under President Harry S. Truman. They were meant to end WWII.

    What followed, until 1998, was an incredible overkill testing of nuclear bombs by the USA, the UdSSR, China, UK, France, India, Pakistan, Israel and, lately, North Korea. It is necessary to watch the video with some patience in the first couple of minutes to experience afterwards the real horror of kind of music of the 20th century.
