I would abhor the loss of life, and the economic impact would not be good, but closing down New York and DC (plus Beverly Hills and Malibu) might actually be good for the US's long-term health.

--this is scare-tactic hogwash, similar to that spread by the anti-nuke propagandists about the Yucca Mountain storage area proposed for Nevada.
Clean up the blast area, wash it down, sweep the streets.
could render big chunks of Washington, D.C. or Manhattan, uninhabitable for decades. ****
Render? They are already uninhabitable by normal human beings.
"We have to rid the world of those people. We have to crush radical Islamism and all the states that breed or foster it. And we have to do it sooner rather than later."
Destroying these people is one approach. Is this approach really possible to achieve? Destroying the elements which create their existence might be a better one by giving them something to LIVE for, rather than DIE for. Our national security is impacted directly by how many enemies we create.

(Naw. Sorry. What was I thinking of?)
Close the f'n borders....
Cesium (Gamma Emitter) However, residents of an area of about five city blocks, if they remained, would have a one-in-a-thousand chance of getting cancer
Cobalt (Gamma Emitter)
there would be a one-in-ten risk of death from cancer for residents living in the contaminated area for forty years. The entire borough of Manhattan would be so contaminated that anyone living there would have a one-in-a-hundred chance of dying from cancer caused by the residual radiation.
Someone tell me why this is supposed to be so scary ??? We're ALL going to die eventually. Smallpox scares me, this is a pipsqueak threat.

(Chance favors the prepared mind.)
You mean if they bombed DC congress and the senate might not be able to meet there for a couple of hundred years?
Hmmmm ...the country might enjoy a speedier recovery if those bastages werent in session longer imo
Why is it that Nagasaki and Hiroshima are not 'haunted ghost towns'.
Or are they?
