I don't think a 10 kiloton bomb would produce wide-spread stampeding.

I beg to differ, if that were detonated in NYC there would indeed be panic to make 911 look like a parade.

It would gut the center of the city (where few people usually actually live), and irradiate a minor area around that.

Where millions of people work, this thing would go off mid-morning, mid week. Thousands, if not millions would be dead in the initial blast and thousands more would die due to radiation in the following couple weeks.

It would be a gigantic problem, no doubt.

Understatement of the year!

Is Richard Marcinko a Republican? I loved his book.

Yes, I agree, thousands dead. In the hear of Manhattan, perhaps tens of thousands. That's NOT millions. That's my only point.

Don't forget all the many who will die in the retaliation
