Let's break this down into a simple argument:
Mr. A: "The government wanted to test the effects of an atomic explosion on soldiers, so X number of soldiers were transported into the desert to witness an atomic test."
Mr. B: "That wasn't a conspiracy, because it's impossible for X number soldiers to keep a secret!"
Several problems with this response:
1) Mr. B is making an unjustified claim using hyperbole (that it is "impossible").
2) Mr. B has committed a non-sequitur
because keeping a secret isn't a necessary condition for a conspiracy to have taken place (we know about actual conspiracies because people involved did NOT keep secrets).
3) Mr. B just appears to be a poor communicator who does not know how to properly address conspiratorial claims.
Mr B. should have asked/replied:
1) What is your evidence that X number of soldiers were transported into the desert to witness an atomic test?
2) Many military personnel have witnessed atomic tests. What is your evidence that the point of this was to "test the effects of an atomic explosion on soldiers" rather than something much less nefarious?
3) Assuming the goal was to "test the effects of an atomic explosion on soldiers," how do you know these soldiers did not volunteer for this after being warned of the risks?
4) We know humans are bad at keeping secrets. Given this, it is far more likely that this event never happened as you described than X number of people involved keeping this a secret for so long.
5) If this is true and you have all this evidence, why don't you seek justice for these soldiers and take this case up with the proper authorities and legal channels, rather than posting them on Internet conspiracy forums along side claims of the government being run by lizard people and claims that Sandy Hook shooting never really happened?
