There are a lot more strategic targets than Atlanta. Why would Atlanta even be a target? It’s about taking out response capabilities, not killing people. US chain of command and military assets would be the priority targets, followed by infrastructure, followed by economic systems.
Not discounting your dream happened, but I think it would only be terrorists (or rogue regimes) that would just want casualties and would target population centers that are outside of strategic targets. That threat has been around for decades.
There is tons of literature available that explain military objectives of warfare, nuclear or otherwise. If you dig into it, you may sleep better.

Nothing lasts forever , people should be too stressed about it , holding onto form or even our own bodies!
its all meaningless in the grand scheme of things !
I wouldnt worry too much about the "end of the world"
You do of course realize civilian centres would be targeted in a 'Grand Tour' strike scenario, correct?

I just dreamed I couldn't find my Army Fatigue shirt, for morning formation, and my Barracks room had been converted into a Chicken coup and even had a pig inside too. I was desperate to get to the mess hall and then find a shirt.... I woke up... What's it all mean ?
