    Human lives are to the US government as toilet paper is to... well, you get it.

    Except some of us even try to avoid wasting toilet paper.

      My first duty station was a radar site that was built early in the cold war. Lead pipes, lead paint, and a steam heating system that had pipes wrapped in asbestos. Mid 1980s, Bioenvironmental decided the paint was hazardous, so we painted over everything. The asbestos was hazardous, so we wrapped it in duct tape (no respirators or other protective gear). The pipes...well there was no money for that, so enjoy your lead.

      I don't have meso (yet), but I wonder how many of the people that were stationed there do.

      That's the sad state of affairs.

        It sure is.

        The US government decided to use soldiers for the clean-up, because employing specialist nuclear workers would have doubled the cost.

        Can't have that...Penny pinching shits.

          Exactly. And it's not like the US army doesn't get any money. They just don't give a shit about human lives.

    Is anyone is truly surprised by this... welcome to the brutal nature of the government hive mind. Zero empathy.

    At what point in American history where the people in uniform nothing more than expendable?
