4 words: Dugway sheep kill incident.

Let's just say we shouldn't be surprised when an organization coordinated for the defense of our country takes liberties with testing.

How do we know they aren't testing crap on us now?

Maybe an odorless, tasteless chemical causes obesity, diabetes, and slowly reduces intelligence that is being introduced into the food supply to allow the Mushroom People to process humanity into cans of cream soup that go unused in the back of their pantries for decades.

b2theory: jmsvrsn: This sort of thing was also done in Minneapolis.

I've heard of those tests. Weren't an entire class of kids eventually wiped out by cancer from the corner of the building where the chemicals released?


I hadn't heard of this one.

Got a link/wiki/search words?

Lived in St. Louis for 8 years. After escaping this past April, all I can say is "pretty much."

Yeah, but you moved to MS (but in all fairness, it's where you're from).

But yeah, suburban St. Louis pretty much is the vinyl-sided circle of hell.


I actually love living in St. Louis. *shrugs*

I don't care how many planes fly over me...

"Operation LAC (Large Area Coverage), was a U.S. Army Chemical Corps operation which dispersed microscopic zinc cadmium sulfide (ZnCdS) particles over much of the United States. The purpose was to determine the dispersion and geographic range of biological or chemical agents.

"According to Leonard A. Cole, an Army Chemical Corps document titled "Summary of Major Events and Problems" (1958) described the scope of Operation LAC. Cole stated that the document outlined that the tests were the largest ever undertaken by the Chemical Corps and that the test area stretched from the Rocky Mountains to the Atlantic Ocean, and from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico.[4] Other sources describe the scope of LAC varyingly, examples include, "Midwestern United States",[3] and "the states east of the Rockies".[1] Specific locations are mentioned as well. Some of those include: a path from South Dakota to Minneapolis, Minnesota,[2]Dugway Proving Ground, Corpus Christi, Texas, north-central Texas, and the San Francisco Bay area.[1]"

The US military has an unfortunate, and continuing, habit of doing this. Their "field-tests" for that microwave "gun" they built a few years back were deploying it against unwitting domestic protestors. One of the first stories I ever read about that device was about that, in fact.

If there was a way to neatly excise Imo's Pizza, the St. Louis Zoo, and the Gateway Arch from St. Louis, then we could safely burn the rest down, seed it with prairie wildflowers, and start over.

I am aware that Imo's Pizza will be controversial. If it helps the project along, I will take personal custody of the pizzas.
 
2012-09-29 01:43:18 AM
Oh, FFS. Zinc cadmium sulfide IS the florescent substance.
And this isn't newly revealed. This was extensively reviewed back in 1997. She seems to have added nothing new except vague insinuations about some sort of connection to U.S. Radium.

The Army was not looking to test the effects on residents, they were looking to test dispersion rates and characteristics. They used ZnCdS and in some cases even some actual (but not considered harmful) species of microbes as tracers to estimate what the dispersion of attacks on the cities would be, if an actual bioweapon was used by the Soviets.

Were the tests unethical? Absolutely. By testing in inhabited areas, people were exposed without knowledge or consent to substances that, although thought safe, were not thoroughly enough proven to be so.
Were people being deliberately experimented upon in this case? No.

/For that, you can check out the Tuskegee syphilis experiment
//As for U.S. Radium, they were forced to stop making Undark (and stopped processing ore for radium) already by the late '20s. Undark's inventor himself died of exposure to the radium.

FTFA: "US radium had this reputation where they had been found legally liable for producing a radioactive powdered paint that killed many young women who painted fluorescent watch tiles"

While the Army admits it added a florescent substance to the zinc cadmium compound, details of whether it was radioactive remains secret.


Nice leap, even if the writer does mean fluorescent in both cases.

Have you heard of:

St. Louis Art Museum, City Museum, Delmar Loop, Central West End, Botanical Gardens, Powell Symphony Hall, Science Center, St. Louis Zoo, Dog Town, Washington Blvd, Laumeier Sculpture Park, or.. yes, the view from the Arch is great. And East St. Louis is like the wild west, if you feel like it.

When I went into BCT in 2002, most of us said 'yes' to the 'experimental' pneumonia vaccine.

Now I wonder.

Also I wouldn't be at all surprised if this kind of thing went on in many parts of the country. I am honestly very surprised no one tried to stydy my father after he was diagnosed with breast cancer - specifically because so was my MOM fifteen years prior. Two houses down, my friend's dad died of colon cancer. Given that the area is (granted, ~10 miles) downwind of Kodak's old incinerator, one wonders.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), led by Bush appointees, plans to launch a new study in which participating low income families will have their children exposed to toxic pesticides over the course of two years.

Oh gotdamn it.

There are no radioactive particles in zinc cadmium sulfide. It glows because it's fluorescent. It was a test on where radioactive and biochemical particles would spread, but you don't need radioactivity to test wind patterns.

The important thing is to not lie about what the government does. Was this unethical and immoral? Certainly. Was it dangerous, did it use radioactive particles, was it a test on American citizens? All no.
