It will be a disaster of course but eventually they would recover.

Our economy would be scrambled and a panic but that's why our next president has to be prepared for those situations and use other state resources to keep us on our toes.

Actually, we probably would be forced to nuke the country responsible if that's the case.

the only countriues capable of shooting a nuke to the US are Russia and China...

anyone else would have to sneak one in....

if Bin Laden nuked us then that would be strange becasue we would have no one to nuke back...I would have to assume that it would be like 9/11 only about 10 times worse. It would take us a year or two to recover and then we would be up and running...

If Japan can survive being nuked twice then we can survive being nuked once....

I agree. If it were a terrorist, there isn't a country responsible. They live in their own hellish world, sneaking around and all.
