Shocked and Dismayed!!!
26 April 2017 | by johnm-38132See all my reviews

This documentary shows how inherently dangerous and unpredictable nuclear missiles are. It also shows how deceptive the FEDS and the military have been regarding these dangers. The military's treatment of the enlisted men who got seriously injured and risked their lives to prevent this accident from turning into a nuclear holocaust is totally inexcusable. SHAME SHAME SHAME!!!
