The intentional placement of an electromagnetic device or nuclear in such a way that the device would affect our ionosphere, or satellites, would
result in immediate, overwhelming retaliation. First, because a large sector of the civilian market is dependent on them -- So as to be an attack on
the nation's economy, and that space is coveted by the world's top military's, and most radiation can linger for months, or years at a time
depending on the amount absorbed. This would not be a 'clean attack' on the U.S. in any offensive exercise, the radiation would also down many
other's space assets.
The reply to this, I believe, would be an unconventional strike to debilitate whatever ballistic capabilities Iran had remaining.
