You are so close to the truth yet so wrong.
Nuclear hoaxes were invented by the same force that created fascism in order to stop the advance of class struggle after the astonishing defeat of that project by the communists. While commoners could enjoy relative freedom and prosperity in the post-war period, under the pacified nuclear world, under the Damocles' sword of nuclear annihilation hanging over their heads, they never threatened to end the capitalist order once for all, and let the rulers keep the master key of the system. So, effectively, nukes make fascism useless, because with them fascism is globalized under the blue flag of the UN, officially "pacifist". Needless to say, today, with a new "govern by science" even this charade of a stand off between the trotskist USSR now vlassovite RF and the west is being disposed of, since we are completely disarmed and inoffensive.
>but muh Stalin!
Yes, Stalin had the "bomb" but also a year after, he was at war - against the UN no less! - and died while fighting that war (that saw no nuke used.) Just like Beria, head of the nuclear program, arrested the month prior to the Korean armistice.
Ok, I'm a schizo but nukes remain bullshit: you don't need to be a physicist (this board is severely ignorant) to understand that nukes can't produce the mushroom cloud associated with them. Firstly, they don't produce smoke (of several order of magnitude more massive than the bomb itself, nonetheless.) Secondly, the dynamic of mushroom production is that of a big explosion of conventional explosive, how that can be, being the nuke bomb of a completely different nature? Therefore, all images of a nuclear test are false. So, food for thought...
