The Unites States continues to funnel billions of dollars of its taxpayers’ money into military projects and weapons of mass destruction under the pretext of conducting scientific research.

Human rights activists have raised concerns over the nature of studies being carried out at the controversial Los Alamos National Laboratory, which is located in Los Alamos, New Mexico.

The facility is one of the most strategic military research centers in the US, which engages in interdisciplinary studies as well as national security, space exploration, meteorology studies, reversible energies, medicine nanotechnology, thought control, supercomputers and nuclear warfare.

The facility in question is comprised of more than 2,200 buildings in an area of 43 square miles and has more than 12,000 personnel.

But many believe Los Alamos resembles an enormous military base, and that the studies in the center are mainly focused on developing deadlier biological weapons, more devastating nuclear bombs and stronger weapons of mass destruction.

The composition of the staff employed in the gargantuan laboratory, informed sources say, is uniquely characterized by the large presence of nuclear physicists, who account for almost one-third of the personnel at the site.

Nearly a quarter of the staff are engineers, one-sixth specialize in chemistry and the rest include different scientists, mathematicians, computer engineers, biologists, and geologists.

The center, which houses six massive nuclear weapons systems including Minuteman III, receives an estimated two billion dollars in funding annually.

The Los Alamos National Laboratory is also infamous for test firing the world’s first atomic bombs, two of which were used against hundreds of thousands of civilians in Nagasaki and Hiroshima in World War II.

The center plans to build a new six-billion dollar nuclear lab dubbed Chemistry Metallurgy Research Replacement Facility and has raised fears that nuclear and plutonium researches may be conducted there.
