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.

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

If they Nuke Oakland, I'd pretty much be OK with that.

I voted No because I would rather be the country that prevented nuclear war rather than start it. I think the rest of the world would be outraged at the nuclear attack and would be behind us in bringing them down conventionally.

We should preemptively nuke that same city before they can, we're better than they are.

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.
