    Once Pandora's box was opened, they had to test the contents somewhere. They can't place untested weapons on top of missiles. Anyway, the majority of those tests were deep underground and caused negligible fallout.

    I never said anything of the sort. Simply stating a fact that the majority of tests caused negligible enviromental damage and were carried out for mostly logical reasons rather than political.

    It was not in California, but the desert southwest, in particular within the state of New Mexico.

    Yes and by the Brits too, a number of the British tests took place in US South West strangely (pink explosions), does anyone have an explanation?
