If there were to be a nuclear attack on the U.S. by another country what places in the U.S. would they strike?

So I have been keeping up with the news on Ukraine and Russia and I saw that Russia says that any country that interferes with what they are doing in Ukraine will face "consequences they have never seen." I also saw earlier today on the news something about Joe Biden and how the U.S. won't stop and that if Russia keeps getting bolder they will step in more and more. So seeing this makes me think that this situation may escalate further and possibly affect the U.S. in a much more severe way. If a nuclear war were to break out and the U.S. were to get nuked what parts would get nuked and why and which ones most likely won't get much nuking or will be unaffected?
If nuclear war broke out we are all dead.
But it is because Russia has them that Ukraine has been left helpless.
And if Ukraine had not been forced to give up the ones that they inherited from the Soviet Union this war would not be happening.
The USA will not fire one at Russia ( not first anyway)-but i fear Putin -who is clearly insane-would be mad enough.
And it would be aimed at Washington to take out the government.

@TheSirfurryanimalWales Nuclear doesn't work that way. It doesn't mean all are dead from direct blast. Lots of factors vary in.

@ravenwind43 The US used to drop nukes on American and Canadian troops. And Mississippi got nuked a couple of times.

@TheSirfurryanimalWales Interestingly, the Soviet Union did not have strike first contingency plans, but the US did.

If the US was attacked, It would be an all-out war. North America would be gone, so would Russia, China, North Korea and Europe.

They will first attack where we have military bases, strategic arms buildups, command centers. Then they would attack larger population centers. We would be counter attacking in a similar way, but a lot would depend on what the members of the Trump administration and other GOP members gave Russia in information about our defense mechanisms, they likely have some of our codes and can disable our countermeasures.

High population areas mainly and government. Depends on various scenarios how much is gone, such as the difference between a tactical or a strategic missile. Depending on weather conditions, NY could be taken out while parts of NJ remained unscathed. If the wind is favorable most of the most contaminates will fall out over the water..etc.

Swear to god, Americans are itching to get attacked so that all the troops and military tech can be let loose.

As for the nuke strike, it doesn't matter, no one has enough nukes to destroy every US military base.

@jimjim1969 Putin must be trying to show he is masculine between rounds of doing things to little boys. now the news is staying Putin is considering using tactical nukes in Ukraine. 🍪

Putin has shown himself to be a madman, so I take the threat seriously.
@Human1000 it damn well should get taken seriously especially with China backing Russia as well those two together are a threat to any countries that oppose them

Always target the population centers, dams, heavy industrial sites, transportation centers and then fixed military bases.
Washington DC to destroy the government structure any states with oil or natural resources and states with military bases
AbbySvenz · F
Military bases, government centers, and ports, most likely

Washington and NYC

There is a theory that even if a country with nukes was attached by nukes, that there should be no response. Why kill millions more people?
