We were so indoctrinated into thinking pretty much ANYTHING defense related would be a target of enemy nukes. I seriously doubt this is the case.
Instead, if I were the enemy, I'd be concentrating SOLELY on the enemy's missile capability and air bases. (and with numerous missiles going after key
targets). I'd task my bombers with mostly trying to take out the carrier groups and nearby missile complexes and bases (as well as any subs using
their own launches to pinpoint them).
This is actually my concern where I work. I'm just about 20 miles from a major Air Force base. Normally, with a single impact of a 5 megaton one (more
of a chance from China there...the Russian ones are smaller), I'd probably be OK here. (as long as I was indoors, and could get to a good spot to not
get too much radiation). If outside, forget it. (but I don't work outside). We're right on the cusp of whether or not our windows would be blown out
by the air pressure....
But, if we had multiple strikes on the AFB, it's a bit harder to calculate. at least radiation wise (and of course, depends on how accurate the
Another big problem, the EMP would likely kill most modern cars on the bridges, turning them into giant parking lots.
