Some creepy rare film stills have been released on the China-Underground website. The stills are shots of nuclear arms testing on various animals and vehicles during the 1960’s.
“Nuclear” is a contemptuous subject of late given the fallout after the Japan earthquakes. While other countries have re-thought their nuclear power programs, China is planning on building a new generation of power plant, with the first being scheduled for April in Shandong.
Of course, China has now amended its nuclear weapons program and takes a purely defensive approach of ownership. China has the second least nukes of the 5 official nuclear weapons owners and hasn’t fired a Nuclear weapon since 1996. Since then, China has been pro-disarmament, even reprimanding long term “bum-chum” North Korea over its nuclear arms testing back in 2009.
But still, the photos are pretty scary.
