First, it would take a minimum of two very large nukes detonated at high altitude to cover most of the US. Even assuming they both made it to target
and both were successfully detonated it would not 'wipe out' the U.S. It would do significant, serious and long-lasting damage putting most of us
back into the 1800's. Yes, it would be very bad.
However, if that were to ever happen (sooooo unlikely) anything of any value within NK would be glassed. No discussion, no negotiations, no press
releases. The country would cease to exist as we know it. And if they did attack us in such a manner the action would be indefensible in the
international community. They would be a pariah. No other country (China, Russia, etc.) would come to their aide and risk having a huge part of
their valuable infrastructure toasted either. Just can't see it happening.
