    Where did you read that? I'm a bit of a history buff, and would be interested in reading it.


Here's one but if you google the name of the mine (Shinkolobwe) you can find more.

    You are right though, the atomic bomb isn't like the Internment camps that everyone agrees was wrong. It is shades of grey.

    However, the Uranium was used for tests, the actual bombs used plutonium, because of the shorter half life. 14-15 years compared to well, look it up. A long, long time. They would both still be hot spots.


I believe the Fat Man bomb that struck Nagasaki was plutonium. Little Boy the bomb that struck Hiroshima was uranium. (I think the Trinity/Gadget used in testing was also plutonium).

    Sorry about that, it would have bugged me if I didn't do that. My apologies. And uranium WAS crucial too the tests, so your point remains valid.
