I have a videotape from years ago showing a couple of people who have been deformed by the nuclear fallout. Yikes. These poor people.

Without God and only the State, people are just things to be used. The Soviets in their “wisdom” decided that some number of deformed children was not too high a cost in maintaining their nuclear program.

Ahh yes. Time to ramp up the anti-Nuke fears in the country again. We don't want more nuclear power plants to be built or anything.

Can anyone think of another reason for CNN to run a story about birth defects in Kazakhstan? ...but no story about Mrs. Clinton's illegal campaign financing? ...and no story about the continuing success of the war in Iraq?

Read about these poor people a few years ago. The Russians definitely threated them as subhuman.

Then again, they might have wanted them as test subjects...............

Of course the purpose of the article is to let people know that nukes are terrible. But the USA, Britain, France, Israel,etc., have had nukes for many years and there is nothing of the kind in those countries.

These atrocities are the fault of Communism, and nothing else.

We have our own less than sparkling history regarding nuclear testing and the effects that it had on our civilian population, and all one needs to do is to begin with asking the average person in St. George Utah what they think about atomic testing to get a taste for what was going on in the 50’s in Nevada.

From 1951 to 1963, 126 atomic bombs were detonated at the Nevada test site, and after one such blast, troops were actually ordered to march right into Ground Zero in a simulation exercise of ‘occupying’ enemy territory (as if there would be any hospitable territory left).

While the United States Department of Defense may not have conducted itself with the totalitarian ruthlessness of the Soviets, the results of our own nuclear testing upon innocent men, women and children are not much different.

It’s the no-nukes types who complain about deformed children yet support abortion on demand.

The same types of awful deformities are in evidence in Belarus as well as surrounding areas. Little thing called Chernobyl.

60 Minutes once did a story where Ed Bradley visited Semipalatinsk including the medical museum. He said that one of the museum exhibits was a deformed baby with the tail of a fish. Besides nuclear explosions in the area, there was also plutonium processing.

Birth defects happen everywhere. This article does not provide an ounce of proof that the defects observed by the reporter are in any way related to nuclear fallout.

Don’t buy in to the hippies’ fear of all things nuclear.

How do the deformity rates compare with other regions of the former USSR?

CNN is not trying to show the evils of communism, they’re trying to show the evils of nuclear power.
