It is a scary and frightening thought about the narrative being displayed about how effective our missile shield is.

How do you know?
The USA has no defence for ICBM's.
But, apart from that, where did the OP mention ICBMs?
No one has an effective defence system against ICBM's, they're travelling at 16,000 mph.
Nuclear warheads headed towards the USA aren't coming from Canada or Mexico, they would be ICBM's from Russia or China.
You forgot about NK, israhel, pakistan ans the countries they candupply to, and then the one i think is mist likely a nuclear attack in usa by usa. That will most probably be a stolen nuke or a rouque person or organisation

You're kidding yourself if you think America's would lose. This is why it's a bad idea to even converse Nuclear Weapons with the country that invented them.
We're substantially cushy on many other things, that's the only reason people are even allowed to have Nuke other than us.
Also if Russia launched that many warheads, America would use a 'blow up the whole planet' bomb. The only reason America has nukes is a deterrent, and they're moving onto bigger things.
Though, you should also note that "nuclear winter" is based on data every bit as rigorously fudged as the hockey stick graph.
