Any place in the U.S could be considered a target.
As I previously posted though..........
Most likely the high value targets for terrorists, or rogue ops, are the nerve centers of the U.S. , those being......
1. Washington D.C. - Our political capital and the seat of our government. A strike against it would disrupt military ops, disaster response, pension
checks, postal ops, ect.....
2. New York - Our financial capital. A strike against it would disrupt the stock market, currency trading, destroy the U.N. and eliminate a large part
of our ability to negotiate financial transfers with other countries.
3. Los Angeles - One of our major ports. A strike on it would disrupt our economy severely by disrupting our ability to trade goods with other
nations. (We are the worlds largest exporter).
To a lesser degree their are other targets within the U.S but those are the big three.
Even just a dirty bomb in each could render them uninhabitable for lengthy periods.
(Think New Orleans except with radiation instead of water).
There are many ways to hit all three targets and plenty of weapons to do it with.
A rogue North Korean sub with nuclear tipped cruise missiles could take out East coast targets.
A "suitcase nuke" could be planted in each city.
Medical nuclear waste could be combined with explosives and detonated in dirty bombs to irradiate urban areas.
We should be honest here. It's not how much you hit, but what you hit, and what you use.
Less than a battalion of "sleeper agents", with the right support and equipment could "crack the U.S like an egg shell" from within.
That's why we need to catch them and kill them. No questions asked. No appeal. If your Al Quada or a jihadist then up the smokestack you go.
We can no longer afford to wear a white hat and expect them to follow the rules.
The only way to catch a "gook" or an Apache is to become a "gook" or an Apache.
We have prisons full of people right now that we could recruit and send in to do the dirty work in exchange for pardons or sentence reductions.
