Here are the cities most likely to get struck in a nuclear attack by Russia | Business Insider

Ever since the Cold War, the US and Russia have drawn up plans on how to best wage nuclear war against each other — but while large population centres with huge cultural impact may seem like obvious choices, a smart nuclear attack would focus on countering the enemy’s nuclear forces.

  1. Both the East and West Coasts will be obliterated if Russia decides to strike the USA. They will be getting rid of DC and draining the Swamp. Without DC…..there will be no second strike made by the USA…as there will be no one left to give launch codes. The whole war between Russia and the USA would last all of 18 mins and 32 seconds. This whole war will be fought in the USA with no Russian boots on the ground…until they have the USA’s unconditional surrender…..which they won’t have to wait that long for as America will be too busy burying 200 million dead Americans….they won’t have time to fight!
