the REACTOR'S nuke material part of the fallout cloud. One upwind of each of Chicago, NYC, and LA would shove the US back into the 1800's, result in the death of 200 million plus people, inside of a year. Virtually no other country could withstand ONE such hit, either. Just how many countries you THINK you can go to war with, hmm? So, yes, a dozen backpack nukes would suffice to make you "non-<font color=red>*</font><font color=red>*</font><font color=red>*</font><font color=red>*</font>-withable". :) little pissant raids,yes. Major invasions, no.

To utterly demolish the core of an American commercial nuke plant with an ADU you'd have to get right up next to the containment building (those things are TOUGH).

Unfortunately for the would be nuclear sapper, the 24/7/365 on-site security at a modern American nuke plant is usually pretty serious. I'm talking some of the best professionally trained former military with the best toys, including things like squad autos and late model armored cars with .50cals or bigger. They have the best surveillance gear money can buy.

The Palo Verde nuke plant outside of Phoenix, the largest in the country, has a security force that could probably take on and whip the Mexican Army.

In other words, you'd never get close enough.

Any would be terrorist with an ADU would find a softer target that would have a national effect, like Wall Street.

I'm not so sure even about that. A small tactical weapon like he's blathering about probably wouldn't. They were constructed with the idea that nukes (big ones) may well be falling near it. Not to mention they were designed in the event of a meltdown to contain the nuclear material forever. You'd probably have to get inside the building with the tactical nuke to destroy it.

And as you stated the security around these things is massive. Nuclear plants are one of the few things we're serious about protecting. And those guys DO walk around loaded, and they WILL shoot.
