There seems to be a kind of anticipation from some members of this board (i assume any board) for a nuke war... or to be more specific, a nuke war that causes a 'mad max' type world situation.

Just a note; a single nuke would have pretty much no visible effect on the internet.

How about ignoring the fact television and internet will be wiped out, how about humanity being wiped? The thought of nuclear war is just utterly ridiculous to myself, nobody is going to win.
In Iran, I supposed.

I'd like people's ideas of what will happen following a nuke being detonated in a war time situation

Oh, you can win a all-out nuclear war. You just have to be the one to keep your Command and Control structure intact, and you do that by spreading it out in areas that won't be obvious targets. As for "nuclear winter," well, that's an interesting theory that has yet to be proved. What do we have to lose? Just look at it as Nature in action, which frequently wipes the slate clean to make room for new life. [Edited by Don W]
