Your first question can only apply to Russia, so I will respond only to that. The reason for this, every other nuclear power can not take on America
AND NATO. there isn't enough warheads in the other countries counting China.
You have to think in terms of WW3 not WW2. There is a big difference. WW3 is a first strike only then try to absorb the return hit. Everything is
already built and in place for this war. That means military bases, naval ports, military airfields, and missile silos. The cities would be held in
response to a second or third wave attack. There is nothing that says, "ALL missiles will be launched the first day, first week, or first month". We
have subs and so do the Russians. Both countries will be extremely p**sed at one another and both will try to take out the remaining military /
government in place.
The blast damage depends on several factors, you can find resources all over the internet for this. I live about 10 miles from the center of a large
city I would deem a target on a second strike. I have a reinforced basement that I believe will stand up to a one megaton blast from that range.
Whether a five megaton bomb would be used on my city, I'm not a Russia military planner. It would make more sense to have five of them targeted for
my city in a ring pattern. One may or may not make the trip due to any number of failures that could happen. Five failures of different warheads is
There are any number of sites that provide information on shelters. Some are simple and some are very elaborate.
Iran is nothing. Don't fall for the propaganda from either side. Even if they happen to build a bomb and mount it on a missile, they have too many
neighbors, not including Israel, that will handle them. China and Russia will fall under their missiles long before they have the capability to have
missiles that can reliably hit the USA.
Now for you, go look at Ebay and look for dosimeters (and the charger) and CDV-700 Geiger counters. The State of Kansas is selling pallets of this
stuff from the Civil Defense program. For less than $100, you can have yourself fairly well covered for any nuclear event.
Halifax has a shortwave station that broadcasts maritime and NATO information. Yeah, your a target...
