Your in Michigan, I wouldn't be so glad.....to your west in N. Dakota, Montana, and Wyoming are a couple of hundred ICBM silos. Russian strategy
since the late 70s has never been to go after cities ( well, not deliberately if it could be helped), but to go after our nuclear forces. They
figured if they could "disarm" enough of our arsenal with a surprise first strike, we would realize we cant successfully hit back and we would sue
for piece instead of risking our remaining population centers.........So those missile fields would be nailed several hundred times over, and that
clouds going to move west.
Oh sure, if your city is near a base that houses strategic assets it will get hit, but the Russians have a pretty detailed calculus on how to "win"
a nuclear exchange.......
It's called counter force vs counter value.
