In the event of a nuclear strike, is Utah still a Russian target?

It’s nuclear pingpong individuals. Putin hurls a nuclear missile on the U.S. and the U.S. reciprocates by firing a nuclear missile at Russia.

What are the targets?

Think about our shock when watching a documentary on the autumn of the Soviet Union that we noticed an image on the display of Logan’s Fundamental Avenue. Sure. Shock! Shock! Utah is a goal. The goal needed to have a college – Test! It needed to have mountains to include the nuclear blast. – Test! It needed to have an air drive base close by. – Test! Someplace within the Soviet Union an identical unsuspecting city was Logan’s sister nuclear goal.

So when Mitt Romney mentioned that Russia was our primary foe, was he flawed? I think about the record of targets hasn’t modified since then, and earlier than leaving Utah for an additional state, are you aware the place the subsequent bigger U.S. goal is? Additionally whereas the politicians have been concerned in gang warfare on the Capitol, be aware that Putin and Xi now have a hypersonic weapon that travels quicker, quieter and below the radar. Earlier than you blink, you’re nuked.

The place’s our hypersonic deterrent? Who was asleep on the wheel? Earlier than you write Russia off as unimportant to you, keep in mind who has the most important gun wins and it may very well be pointed at you, in Utah.
