Without a doubt, this has to be the most irrational prophecy I've heard in quite some time.
It goes without saying that NO country nor alliance of countries is anywhere close to being able to invade the US.
ICBM attack is likewise very unlikely.
Any nuclear devices that may be detonated within the US borders will probably have been built within the US borders. That would not be a far-flung
scenario. The materials for that type of project could and may well, have already been smuggled into the US for assembly and detonation.
However, even after detonation of several devices in multiple locations, invasion would not be possible. The state of the nation, after such an event
would preclude the ability of any foriegn troops to move anywhere within US borders without untold resistence. The supply logistics alone pose
And don't forget, the US has a very well armed population. And they would not be a respector of UN insignia or authority. However, my take on that
may be wrong.
One invasion scenario I've heard goes something like,
1.) multiple detonations of nuclear devices in multiple major US cities.
2.) the UN and /or other multi-national forces move in to obstensively help with the disastor relief programs.
3.) through the guise of disastor relief, the infrastructure of the invasion force is built, thus providing logistics and supply for the invaders.
4.) Martial law by this time has become the norm. Private ownership of firearms is banned and attempts to collect those firearms are made. After
initial retaliation from the citizenry, US Armed forces are reluctant to make war on their fellow countrymen. And as such, multi-national security
forces assume this role and gain control within US borders.
The problem is, the scenario treats the US from a European perspective. Europe has no well armed populations. And while they are reluctant to give up
the guns now, think how difficult it will be to do that after the above. It also doesn't address the issue of the members of the US armed forces that
won't go along with these measures. Invasion from any perspective would not go well at all. IMHO
