From the looks of it...
Head to the restroom and EVACUATE!
When using nukemap, it's a bit silly to pick the 100mt one made as an experiment.
Instead, use the more common actual arsenal ones, like the RS-24 Yars (with either 3 warheads, each at 500kt (not mt) or 6 at 150-300kt) or, another
one, the SS-27 (500kt) or even the older R-36's (with decoy warheads, and active ones at around 500kt).
So, quite a big difference here in the blast radius of these.
As for scenarios, while we do have a ballistic missile defense system, Russia doesn't need fancy new missiles to bypass it. (missiles that were quite
in the news back in 2015 by the way, so not exactly new) Indeed, if our BMDS DID protect us completely, then the balance of power would make war more
likely...so something the US has NOT wanted to do. There's no way we'd protect against a full on Russia attack. However, our missiles from hardened
silos, subs, and stealth bombers would find their targets, just as theirs would find their targets.
Some of the comments though (about what would happen to pretty women, etc.) underscore a major theme though. With this kind of threat, it's like all
of the shackles of our society are gone. People are going to do whatever the hell they want. That's almost scarier to me than being incinerated into a
shadow on the pavement.
