I was reading seekerof's thread about the Warsaw Pact plans for a limited nuclear war in Europe, when I remembered this site.
This June 2001 report from NRDC's ( Natural Resources Defense Council ) nuclear program offers an independent assessment of the U.S. nuclear war
planning process and the assumptions and logic of the SIOP, or Single Integrated Operational Plan, a Cold War relic that continues to guide U.S.
nuclear war plans. Using customized computer software and a vast aggregation of declassified and open-source data to closely approximate the tools
that SIOP planners use, NRDC has simulated a U.S. attack against Russian nuclear forces and attacks against Russian cities. The report includes a
description of the history, evolution and working process of SIOP; detailed descriptions of the NRDC nuclear war simulation model and target database;
and policy recommendations.

If you want to step through the looking glass and see what would have happened if the US exercised it's SIOP ( Strategic Integrated Operations Plan )
on Russia, this is a must read. It is the most comprehensive document I've seen on teh subject.
