Now that Bush junior is suggesting that the USA might make a 'preemptive nuclear strike' (what we used to call an 'unprovoked nuclear attack') on a foreign country the atom bomb is back in the news. Jack Straw was fired as British Foreign Secretary for being so presumptuous as to suggest that this was not a good idea. If I was running Iran the one thing that might encourage me to try to build an atom bomb (and they're a long way from reaching that capability) would be a threat from abroad to use one against us.

Perhaps a pretty mushroom cloud by way of illustration?

A recent US government report* estimated that fallout from open-air nuclear testing from 1951 to 1962 has killed more than 15,000 Americans and will cause at least 80,000 cancers in the US. This does not included deaths attributable to most of the French atmospheric testing in the Pacific (which came later), or pre-1951 testing in the Marshall Islands, or the 1945 New Mexico tests, or many others, including the fallout from the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombs. It doesn't include non-American deaths either.

The bomb is dropped. In the words of Nagasaki bombadier Kermit K. Beahan, "The target was there, pretty as a picture. I made the run, let the bomb go. That was my greatest thrill."
