If They Clicked off a Nuke ....

Perhaps it is because I spent a lot of time as a JO playing around with the how, when, and to what degree we would nuke someone that nuclear weapons can sometimes be a cold subject.

Especially at the tactical nuke level - it isn't the end of the world. Indeed, we trained to fight and win in a nuclear environment not that long ago.

Along those lines, I think more people should get comfortable with Alex Wellerstein's NUKEMAP.

From Davie Crocket to the Tsar Bomb - play dial-a-yield all you want.

Want to know what a probably terrorist nuke of NYC would look like?  Without pondering fallout .... build your own ... even your hometown if you wish.
