If a United States city is nuked this morning

... does the government retaliate with its nuclear weapons?

(poll should be forthcoming)

Too many factors have been left out. What kind of nuke and from who? If it is a major "nuclear power" you HAVE to retaliate in kind or you lose all future deterrence from your nuclear arsenal.

If it's Russia, and they nuke New York... you nuke Moscow and St Petersburg.

Of course you don't wait until the nuke hits, ours would be in the air within minutes of their launch.

As abhorrent as the outcome would be, there simply is no other alternative. Escalation dominance works and works very well, but only if you have the balls and stomach for it.

If north Korea happens to use their one working ICBM on a US base or city in our territories or states.

In spite of their constant yapping, i cant believe they would be stupid enough to do it.

We would level pyongyang and their regime would cease to exist, they must know that.

They do know that. This is bluff and bluster because of our threats toward Iran. The right over reacts and the NeoCons salivate that another reason to attack someone first has arrived.

The most likely scenario is a guy with a suitcase/steel drum nuke, then where do you go?

I agree with this. If it's a single nuke, chances are that it wasn't launched by an easy retaliation target.

Invade Iraq is always a good catch-all response.

In all likelihood, this is less likely to happen (and if it does, further in the future) thanks to GWBush.
