COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS AMERICA.

THIS IS WHAT THE KENNEDY'S SAVED OUR NATION AND OUR WORLD FROM OCCURING. KAZAKHSTAN IS WHERE I WAS BORN TWO YEARS BEFORE THIS DISASTER.

TWO YEARS AFTER OUR FAMILY ESCAPED

In 1947 the Soviet Union began testing their nuclear weapons in a place called Semipalatinsk. Nothing was announced to the public and radiation poisoning spread for hundreds of miles.  Our family would have perished had the war not stopped on my birthday.  Babies were born deformed and adults slowly died from radiation poisoning.

In 1954 Marshal Zhukov assigned 45,000 soldiers to a live-fire exercise designed to test the resilience of men and equipment in a nuclear war.  In standard gear they were sent into battle 15 minutes after a 40-Kiliton bomb was exploded. Most were dead long after but no records were kept.

Two years later 272 soldiers were parachuted in immediately after a nuclear test with orders "to hold the ground pending reinforcements". None were seen again. They are believed to have died within days.

The radiation from the bombs spread over a wide area and would have killed our family.
