The soviets have tried to cover this up for 3 decades and have failed. Mother nature won.
Maybe the DNC will make a subtitled version for the west. wouldn't want Americans to see the truth about socialism\communism that seems all too popular these days. Back in the Cold War, all the communists went into hiding, but now that the generation that faced down the communists is passing away, they feel safe coming out of the woodwork and showing their true colours.
a brilliant show and a must watch for this generation. A lesson in what can happen when government becomes too powerful.
Top UCLA Doctor Denounces HBO's "Chernobyl" As Wrong And "Dangerous"
A top US medical doctor who treated radiation victims in Chernobyl has criticized HBO’s depiction of the accident and radiation’s health effects as inaccurate and “dangerous.”
I'm guessin' someone may want to check his recent bank account transactions...
UCLA, probably a card carrying Socialist Democrat. Never happen.
Just finished watching the last episode; brilliant and heart breaking, and usually both. Good on HBO for showing how pathetically evil and inept the communist/socialist system was, and by extension still is. I was 13 at the time and remember Peter Jennings breaking the news. Fast forward 6 years and I was joining the Navy to become a "nuke" machinist's mate, and the USSR had just fallen apart.
What struck me was the response by ordinary people in the aftermath. I know it was a dramatization, but I have to believe that the representation was fairly true to life. From the three volunteers who went in to drain the water tanks to the miners who tunneled underneath the molten core, they didn't do it out of allegiance to the STATE. They chose to make the sacrifice because it had to be done in order to save the lives of thousands or millions of their fellow men. Sometimes it's easy to demonize an entire population like that of the former USSR because the leadership had designs which posed an existential threat to our way of life. The people weren't inherently evil, yet they spent 3/4 of a century under the Soviet boot heel. I'm sure there were times when one of them looked around and asked "How in the hell did this happen?" Now there are times when I look around and wonder how so many in this country could be so foolish as to glorify that "ash heap of history" to the extent that they would inflict it on their fellow citizens.
I used to work with a lady who grew up in Russia during the cold war. Had some interesting conversations with her. Everything I was told as a kid about Russia back then had a little truth in it, but her perception was way different than I expected.
