More likely than #2 hitting Washington it will detonate about 300 miles above Kansas City. The resulting EMP will destroy the electric grid and anything using modern computer chips. One bomb will literally send us back to the 18th century from a technology perspective. Unfortunately very few of us will have the survival skills of 18th century men and women. The land will not support a population of 300 million using 18th century agriculture methods. Likely more than 200 million will die in the first year.
I don't think so. There is no glory in our death by disease and starvation; they want to kill us with their own hands. I think they will use their second one either to destroy the largest possible population or to kill our national leadership.
