When the government of United States tested nuclear bombs near the city of St. George Utah. They told them there is absolutely no harm in that. Do you think the government was lying intentionally.
Of course they were lying!
No harm in nuclear bombs? Um... Yeah okay right sure
They were talking about radioactive fallout.
Yes, they were lying.
The government lie...never. :/
No, they weren't yet aware of the health risks.
I'm not sure the government, or really anyone else, recognized the risk from fallout so far away would be as high as we now know it to be. So at the time, I don't think they were intentionally lying. In the years since, yes.
What he said
The government always always intentionally lies.
Worth a read:
I want to show about it on TV. John Wayne starring in the movie "The Conqueror" much higher than average members of the cast develop cancer and died.
