A Nuclear Testing Site

The Washington Times carelessly compared Belgium with a nuclear testing site in Kazahkstan.

“The movement influenced the authorities to stop the testing in 1989 and two years later the Semipalatinsk testing site, a vast region the size of Belgium, was closed.”

This is a miss by some 40%. A Wikipedia entry describes the testing site to be 18,000 sq km whereas frequent readers of this blog will know that Belgium covers 30,000 sq km.
