Safe Mode: On
NUCLEAR ATTACK BY TERRORISTS ON D.C. !!!

....Now that I've got your attention...


What would happen if a nuclear bomb hit Washington D.C.? The terrifying report that predicts damage a terror attack would wreak on the nation's capital ?

It is perhaps unsurprising that a nuclear bomb set off in the nation's capital would cause devastating and widespread damage. Yet the simple conclusion did not put the government off, and they commissioned a report to assess the impact of a potential terror attack on Washington, D.C.

The results are far from comforting: the half-mile radius around the bomb would have a low chance of survival and most buildings - including that of the federal government - would be destroyed.The study simulated a nuclear strike on 16th and K streets, which is the heart of the city and just a couple of blocks from the White House.

Buildings including the White House, the Capitol, Treasury Department, Old Executive Office Building and many along the National Mall would be instantly destroyed.The next half mile would suffer extensive damage, fires and serious injuries, and those within three
miles could suffer minor injuries and slight damage to their homes.But it was the fallout which the National Capital Region: Key Response Planning Factors for the Aftermath of Nuclear Terrorism study - held last year - suggested could be the most fearful aspect.It suggests that unlike bombs
detonated in the Cold War, which were designed to decimate entire cities, the smaller bomb would leave survivors - and asks, what would they have to deal with? The study, which was reported on Gizmodo, points out that radioactive fallout would vary depending on the time of year.

In April, Washington's Bethesda area would suffer the brunt of the dust, while throughout the rest of the year, the city's poorer regions and Northern Virginia would be exposed.Within 10 to 20 miles of the explosion, radioactive exposure would cause nausea and vomiting within hours, and death without medical treatment.

But for those near enough to the blast, experiencing more than 800R of radiation, not seeking shelter immediately would cause deaths with or without medical treatment, the
study found. People would not be able to evacuate this area as fallout would arrive within just 10 minutes.

And for those not in this zone, many could die from the effects years later, as the fallout spreads across the country.

The report worryingly concludes: 'The magnitude of a terrorist attack involving [such an attack] will overwhelm all response resources.'

It merely offers suggestions on how to survive, such as: 'The best initial action immediately following a nuclear explosion is to take shelter in the nearest and most protective building or structure and listen for instructions from authorities.''After an unexplained dazzling flash of light, do not approach windows, and stay behind cover for at least a minute to prevent injuries from flying and falling debris, such as broken glass.'It adds: 'People should expect to remain sheltered for at least 12 to 24 hours.

During that time, the intensity of fallout radiation will decrease greatly, allowing for less hazardous egress from dangerous fallout areas.'The study also shows diagrams of houses and suggests which type of home is best designed to protect you from radioactive poisoning.The worst areas are outside home and the tops of apartment blocks, it explains. Buildings without basements offer 'slight' protection and those with basements are 'adequate'. Best of all are properties with
shelters.

  • "What would happen if a nuclear bomb hit Washington D.C.?"

    It'd be like having 10 G. W. Bushes trying to run the country at the same time.

  • If this does happen it would wipe out politicians and other scum that live in DC. Then we the people would have a pretty good reason to fight the forces of evil without restraint.

  • There are over 100 operating nuclear power plants in America (and 16 non-operational power plants). The operational plants are the biggest Nuclear Threat to the US and its inhabitants.

    Remember: Northeast blackout of 2003 - The Whole North East Canada and United States, had a 2-3 day blackout when a Single power plant went down and cause an overload throughout America.

    The point of remembering this is that this is a very dependent system, and very volatile. With that said.

  • Retaliation for this kind of terrorist attack would be very interesting to say the least.

    • @Dubz718 Do you realize how easy it would be for some nuts to use a suitcase sized dirty bomb or larger nuke here? Even a semi, loaded halfway across the country could be eaisly driven into DC or ANYWHERE. Carried out within a day or less. When you have foreign government sponsered terrorist gaining material and knowledge , its going to be attempted sooner or later Im afraid.

  • it might could happen..but i think it will be 20 years down the road when the kids from the conflicts in iraq and afghanistan growup..they've seen their friends and families die by either coalition forces or the taliban or osama bin ladens bunch...then they're bombarded from birth that it's ok to strap a bomb on to kill people and be rewarded with 72 virgin goats and that anger will be directed at the EU and america..don't think it can't happen?..20 years ago nobody would have thought NYC or any More..
