Besides the real interesting part of this Urban Myth appeals to the Doomsayers and Apocalyptic crowd, perhaps because of some Hiroshima/Nagasaki guilt ? or perhaps the guilt ascosciated with all the DU rounds fired in the middle east in the last 5 years ?

The canada or mexico theory has some merit but I am really thinking that it would have to be a US city for it to cause a complete downfall of society and launch us into the camps and martial law.
I was thinking it would be the dallas metroplex but (im pretty sure) cheney has a house here and I read sometime ago that bush plans on retiring here, so I think its pretty safe for us to cross DFW off the list.
It will have to be a major population center for the attack to have the desired effect of complete hopelessness.
plus jr bob dobbs was rumored to be still hanging out in dallas and who would wanna nuke him?

I do not disagree with you.
What has always puzzled me, is how those doing it expect to be immune from the same radioactive effects hitting the rest of us. The air, water, and soil will be poisoned. Radioactivity will not simply stay localized, but will travel through the air internationally as the earth rotates. There can be no DEW, or any other nuclear, without electromagnetic radiation of high powerful kinetic and thermal energy of extreme toxic proportions.
I have come to the conclusion those, infatuated with WMD use for self-service, have deluded themselves into believing they are completely invincible. They are that far out of touch with humanity and the ecology of the earth.
