Didn't even need to look at the map.  I'd be crispy critters here.  Only 15 miles or so from Wright-Patterson A.F.B.

A nuclear exchange would solve alot of problems right now.

Oh swell.  I live southwest of Atlanta and I'm gonna get radiated because of a stupid power plant.  That's GOT to be what the nuke target near me is.
Link Posted: 4/28/2001 7:11:05 PM EDT
Hmmm.  4 nukes within the vicinity of Fairbanks, but only one for Anchorage.  Even more interesting is that the remote Red Dog Mine north of Kotzebue is a strategic target. Other questionable targets: Ft. Yukon, McGrath, and one other remote target.  But I guess If you have thousands of warheads you might as well use them.

Edited to a link because I didn't realise it was a LIFE-SIZE map of the PRK.

I live 1/2 mile away from a landing strip that can handle 60-80,000 lbs planes.  20 mins(cause of traffic) to O-hare.  
I am going to fighting the radioactive hoards in comming from the city.

Take a close look at the date of the FEMA document:1990.  That doc was based on data from the mid 80s, before the Soviet collapse.  It certainly does not reflect what an "attack" would be now.  Most of the older ICBMs have been scraped or allowed to deteriorate to the point they are unreliable and inaccurate.  If they were launched, few would hit their target; they could land anywhere.

On the other hand, in 1998, the Russians began deploying SS25 (Topol)& SS27 (Topol-M) missiles.  The SS27 is an SS25 modified for mobile deployment.  They deployed 1 battalion of SS27s in '98 and 2 per year in the following years; there are 10 missiles per battalion).  They are carried on large tractor units, carry 1 warhead and have advanced penetration aids designed to fool any defensive missile we might build.  They are state of the art and their support units are well funded and get the cream of the Russian military.

Of course, there is the Chinese . . .

I don't know why they would want to use 6 nukes here on the Twin Cities. There are tons of communists here.

I can only assume they are going after varius firearms manuf. (DPMS, Hesse, etc.) and the Fedral ammo plant. (besides the obvious population reason)

If the nukes don't get me the fallout from the Dakotas will.

Link Posted: 4/28/2001 8:44:23 PM EDT
Looking closer at the map there is a target dead center on Hesse. Those guys aren't worth nuking. [>:/]
Link Posted: 4/28/2001 8:48:29 PM EDT
But I don't worry about the Soviets anymore. The Chinese don't have the tech level.
I am more worried about some tramp freighter from the middle east loaded with a nuke and blows up some port city.
Imagien blowing up New Orleans during the Super Bowl. The tidal wave would wash over every thing and many of our corporate/political leaders would be in town.

Uh oh

They only have one nuke for Area 51.

Our captured alien spacecraft could easily survive that and we'd own their ass after the atack.

I am screwed by fallout.

The southern border of Missouri is the place to be.  Plenty of game to hunt and miles away from any strike.

It doesn't matter where you live if it's a full on attack, can't live with no food.  No food if it's snowing with no sunshine for 2 years...

At least we die with the knowledge that the people who did this, along with everyone else in the world, are going down with us.  We may die, but we die victorious!
Link Posted: 4/28/2001 10:47:39 PM EDT
I am not personally concerned about nuclear attack, I am concerned about a nuclear accident.  Living in the Southern Calif., there are many Mexican nuclear power plant just south of the border that are held together by baling wire and innter tube.  If they have an accident, Southern Californians(Not to mention the whole Southwestern U.S.) could be exposed to dangerous level of radioactive fallout in a matter of few days.

Keep your filthy asses out of my state![sniper]
Seriously though, this stuff is out of date. They show nukes hitting Portsmouth, where there [b]USED TO[/b] be a SAC base (just a commercial airport and a few ANG tankers now), and our capital city, Concord, where there is absolutely nothing of value, trust me! I am betting that these are very low priority targets with the limited number of ICBMs available to the bad guys now.

Back in the 70s, there was a lot of discussion about putting ICBMs on railroad cars, and having a circular track several dozen miles in length along which the railroad cars could be moved and positioned. I think they called it the 'Raceway' design.

Then there was the 'hardening' of the missile silos, permitting a survivable counter strike against the Soviet Union.

I remember thinking, forget all that, BLOW THE NUKES UP IN THEIR OWN SILOS!

In six months ALL the Russkis would be dead. Of course, in six weeks, we'd all be dead![BD]

Oh well,  4 nukes targeted in my area.  I know for a fact that one is targeted 2 miles from my house so I guess I'm fried.

But take a look at New York City.  Those commies really must hate liberals!!!!

I don't even have to look - SAC airbase and the whole eastern half of the state (KS) is dotted with tubes.

At least for us it would be over quickly with no suffering.

Ah yes, the MX missle system.  They never went into service, but at some AF base, they have a control car and a launch car, on display.  Would have been a really cool system had they implemented.  

As for where I am, it looks like TAMU has a dot on it.  No suprise, there is a military school here.  As it is only one nuke, I suppose I could run...  but would I only die tired?

It appears that is a 'dot' in the Bryan-College Station area.

Of course, the Soviets would purposefully target TAMU and its Corp of Cadets.  I believe that's where most general officers were trained and educated for service in World War II.

Correct me, if I'm wrong on this last point, [b]more[/b] from Texas A&M College (University) than from any other, including West Point.
