The president has to be alerted and start analyzing the situation at 3:06PM.
Then he has until 3:13PM to start making launch decisions.
How quickly can Biden be raised to a conscious state from his nap?
I don't think we'd have a chance. No way he can do anything without prepping for half an hour.
And if this all started happening at 1AM, we're toast.

3.03PM
In a field outside Pyongyang, a North Korean Hwasong-17 ICBM known as 'the Monster' launches from a 22-wheeled vehicle.

3.03PM, 6 seconds later
Defense Department satellites remain 'parked' over North Korea - and imagery is relayed to the National Military Command Center beneath the Pentagon.
It has been six seconds since the ICBM's launch.

3.03PM, 15 seconds after launch
At the Buckley Space Force Base, Colorado, fighter pilots run towards their jets waiting on the tarmac.
Satellite sensors are monitoring the ICBM as it travels through the air.

3.04PM
In the U.S. Strategic Command (STRATCOM) Headquarters, a 916,000-square-foot complex of bunkers and command centers, leaders begin discussing launch plans - as the US policy is to 'launch on warning'.

3.04PM
At Peterson Space Force Base Colorado, the leadership begin the process to communicate with the President.

3.05PM
Inside the National Military Command Center at the Pentagon, leaders prepare their response, and prepare to contact the president.

3.06PM
The Secretary of Defense tells the President: North Korea has launched an attacking missile at the U.S. and the missile has been validated by NORAD and STRATCOM commanders.

3.10PM
At Fort Greely Alaska, Interceptor missiles are fired into space in a desperate attempt to stop the incoming ICBM from reaching its target. They fail as intercepting an ICBM is a hit-and-miss affair.

3.12 PM
At Clear Space Force Station in Alaska, radar stations get their first clear view of the incoming missile and confirm it is an ICBM targeted at Washington.

3.13PM
Inside the White House, the President is met by an aide with the 'nuclear football' - which contains the codes needed to authorize a retaliatory strike.

The president is shown a 'Decisions Handbook' with options for nuclear strikes, and makes the decision to order bombers to take off and move the U.S. military to DEFCON-1, the highest nuclear alert.

3.15PM
Andersen Air Force Base, Guam: B-2 bombers, each armed with sixteen nuclear weapons take off from the base.

3.17PM
The President is moved to a Sikorsky helicopter by members of the Counter Assault Team to keep him safe from the incoming nuclear attack.

3.20PM
A second submarine-launched missile is detected - a KN-23, a North Korean short-range ballistic missile, flying towards Southern California at six times the speed of sound.

3.22PM
At the Diablo Power Plant Nevada, the KN-23's nuclear warhead detonates on its target, creating a vast fireball and mushroom cloud, and triggering a nuclear core meltdown.

3.24PM
In the White House, the President orders a nuclear counter strike with 50 Minuteman III ICBMs and eight Trident submarine-launched weapons, totaling 82 warheads aimed at North Korea, targeting its leadership, war facilities and nuclear launch sites.

3.27PM
From missile facilities buried in the soil in Wyoming, 50 Minuteman nuclear missiles blast into the air from silos, aiming for North Korea.

3.36PM
The North Korean nuclear missile strikes the Pentagon, sending a fireball three miles into the air and killing more than a million people instantly, with many more soon to die.

KN-23 isn’t a sub launched missile and doesn’t have the range to hit Nevada even if fired off the coast of Ca.

My focus is not the details of capability or plausibility of the scenario, but rather what happens when the President is barely able to make decisions.  You can argue that the article is implausible, but Biden's diminished mental capability is not.

No offense bro, but you are sounding like a leftist that just got caught making up a fake racism claim.

Were China to want to do so it would aid NK in developing the strike capability, then give its leadership and family entry and let the attack come from NK so the counter attack eliminates throw away people.

China could hit California with a JL-3 from their subs but not North Korea and although North Korea has the ability to reach CONUS with land based systems they don’t have the accuracy of targeting specific locations like the White House.


If not intercepted it could land on some ARFCOMMER’s house in Minnesota just as well as the White House

OK I'll play.  Which is more plausible:

- China, NK, Russia, launching nukes at us
- Hostile aliens coming to invade us

We know China and NK have hostile intentions. They want to expand their power as demonstrated on a daily basis.
But we have no knowledge of an alien's intentions. The Vulcans for instance were quite friendly

Nuclear war doesn't even make sense. It serves no purpose whatsoever. The only thing you can do with nuclear war is end human society as we know it. Its not an attack on a country, or a state, or an ideology...its literally an attack on the existence of the human species. You cant get resources with it...you cant grab land...or energy...or power...or even slaves. It does nothing to further a goal, unless the only goal is to wipe out humans from the planet.

Its such a stupid, dated, anachronistic concept. Im convinced that only weak men even contemplate nuclear strategy as they lack the fortitude to fight a real war.

Anyone who ever initiated an unprovoked attack is effectively ending civilization. They are committing millions, if not billions of murders in an instant, while committing suicide, and martyring their own countrymen. If the men running the nuclear nations are stupid enough to use nukes this way, they are too dangerous to be allowed to live. Like really...how stupid does someone need to be to use a weapon that guarantees their own demise, and the demise of their allies?

Based on what information?

Edit oh I see, a sub launched KN-23. That would be a much bigger surprise than the Taliban over running Afghanistan a few days into our exfil. Probably not likely, but a greater than zero chance. Our Intel people generally suck at life.
