I would be fucked, Im in a big city with no guns and no form of transportation. So if it happened and it wasnt in my city I would have to deal with the hoards. I would most likely find my way out of the city and make my way to central Wisconsin.

If I'm not going to be hit by the fallout, I'll stay here. I have friends I can trust, and we can probably hold off looters indefinitely. If the fallout is coming this way, we'll see how well the potassium iodate works, load up the BOVs, and head north.

And prayer. Lots of prayer.

Put in a sell short order on every large corporation I can until all my money and leverage is gone. Provided there's a market open somewhere.

Give it a few days and cover.

Take the cash and buy one of those empty silos.

We've already been told it's not a matter of if, but when

I could only hope I was with my family when it happened. In my last moments I want to be with them.

From a survival standpoint as mentioned you'd have to figure out some kind of threat assessment. If the nuke came for another military power like China or Russia then a military land assault is likely to follow. I'd kill anything in a foreign uniform. Including those with a blue hat on that were called in to bring things back to normal.

If it were an act of terrorism on the other hand I prepare my family and friends for rape, pillage, and looting from inside. Just look at the recent hurricanes and the LA riots to get an idea of how people act in desperate times.

Let's hope it never comes to this.

No, But cancer rates took off in the US after the test. Especially the worst ones Like child hood lukemia ( I Hate to even say the word) .

I hate to be dragged into this one, but it does of coursed depend on the materials used in the pit. Plutonium is dirtier than uranium, thus the fallout from a primarily plutonium device could potentially cause the kill zone to be extended.

If the delivery device is high altitude, say a small aircraft, the fallout would be less as well. However, if the device yields within a city more material would become fallout and be carried into the atmosphere.

This might help you.

Most likely we would encounter a little over 5 kt, unless the weapon is more advanced.

The Nevada test shots were not the biggest nor the dirtiest shots we did. Luckily the area was pretty desolate back then and they didn't conduct most tests unless wind conditions were just right but yes Cancer rates did spike up after that. The fallout also helped scientists trace US wind currents.

The Biggest shots were done in the Pacific, the Castle Bravo shot was our biggest and dirtiest that I know of, the island it was tested on was completely vaporized and became fallout.

For a terrorist strike, Washington DC, LA, and NYC rank as the most likely candidates for an attack due to importance, economic impact, and in the case of LA & NYC very dense population center.

NOBODY would be allowed to go anywhere. Martial Law would be declared in a heartbeat. You wouldn't be allowed to stockpile food or water, let alone leave your house. Anyone who did would be shot on site. Total military takeover of the country. Forget your guns, because if you were caught using one even for self defense purposes, you'd be indefinitely "detained". It would be a nightmare. Every liberty we have would be gone or "suspended". HECK, just look at what Gen. Tommy Franks said after 911..........if another attack were to happen here, martial law would be declared.

Can you tell me where the Govt. is going to get the manpower to restrain 300 million people? I don't mean 300 million people going about the normal course of their daily lives and willingly submitting to the rules of an ordered society. I mean 300 million people who are presumably in a panic, worried about more attacks, protecting, feeding and sheltering themselves and their families.

nyc for financial aspect, philadelphia because of its historical prominance, and Wash D.C. because its the capitol . This would have a pretty bad affect on this country because of each city has some type of
significances as a target its very easy to see not to mention alot of higher ups in Islam know this because they went to school here if this were to happen it would be these 3 cities if any other but these are targets simply for what i have stated i have looked at at purely a tactical angle and this is what i have come up with if there where three targets

I don't know if suitcase nukes give off a huge fallout. I'm in Houston, if one say went off in Dallas, probably wouldn't affect us. From what I've read, they can only take out a downtown area. Maybe someone can give more information on them. I seriously doubt any terrorists have something like a ICBM grade nuke.

A terrorist nuke would be a low-yield device, maybe a few kilotons...enough to take out the center of a city, but no real danger to those in the suburbs...we're not talking Soviet ICBMs with H-bombs here, folks...just crude fission weapons, or more likely just dirty bombs, which aren't really nukes at all...
Link Posted: 9/19/2004 7:30:43 PM EST
the first nukes we used werent grand devices either and would be easy to replicate if you could get the material so i dont have any doubt they could build one

It doesn't matter exactly where it will happen.When it happens,everything will shutdown out of fear.That will be the time to clear the slate and then do what you can to survive until recovery.Which could very well be a long time.
