Reader Poll Replies:

*  The government should not test that close to Vegas.  Dawn B.

*  If testing underground nuclear bombs can help in defense then I say yes.  Mark   CA

* Why Nuclear testing?  To what end is the testing to be done?  Weapons of mass destruction should be possessed by no one Carol Denil

*  No it is to close to las many people close by. G J Smith

*  No! No! No! Nobody has ever given me any evidence there is any benefit from nuclear testing -- and my biggest objection is when it is done near to any areas with population of any size.  Joanne Kammer

*  Most DEFINETELY NO! We need world peace, not more weapons of mass destruction. Accidents do happen. Do we need to destroy ourselves? If U.S.A. does not set an example to the rest of the world, how can we expect the other nations to stop building WMD. WMD can fall into the wrong hands and be used against us. So lets stop building and testing arms. Lets build a bridge to WORLD PEACE instead. Kal Gosal

* No, the government should save us all the money and anxiety and not continue testing.  After all, we know how to manufacture nuclear weapons, and we know they work pretty good already. How many more smithereens must we blow to be sure? John Frawley La Mesa, CA

*  Definately NOT.  Here we are in Iraq looking for weapons of mass destructions.  I was all for the war in the beginning.  I have a grandson who is in the 3rd Inf and spent 8 months over there and has to go back.  But now I don't think those people will ever want what we THINK is best for them.. So back to the testing.  NOOO  We already know what we have - leave it at that.  What if other countries decided to come over here looking for weapons of mass destruction?  And on a lighter note ---- termites are eating our houses and we can't use certain chemicals because of the enviroment anymore.  Wonder which is the worse for our enviroment - chemicals to kill bugs or nuclear testing.   Carol S 

*  I don"t think the government should do nuclear testing that close to Vegas , First of all Vegas is a highly populated area. Next with all the new homes , It won"t be long before , the test sight will be even closer to populated area.  Lenny Spero

* No, I am against them nuclear testing. #1 - If we are in the state of the world asking people to get rid of nuclear weapons, then why would they need to be "testing" nuclear weapons?  #2 - And probably more important to me... I have been thinking of moving to Vegas several times, but the one thing that always enters my mind is just how safe is it really since the site is ONLY 65 miles away!  Nuclear testing has got to be bad for people living too close so it keeps people like me from moving there when I really would if I knew that there were no harmful effects for sure!  Chris Anderson  Atlanta, GA

My answer would be no.  Nuclear testing is no good anywhere it is done.    Boobies732

*  No.   LAYNSGR

*  Yes, but not here, but maybe in the middle east.  Tom Ayers  Montclair, CA
