Manhattan, KS

Los Angeles, CA

Screw that city
2012-06-23 04:25:33 PM  
Wherever the aliens invaded.

/but then, I'm crazy enough to go down fighting

Define "city"
2012-06-23 04:25:38 PM  
Houston, from what I saw of it that whole place is a bad neighborhood.
2012-06-23 04:25:38 PM  
The smallest city in the middle of Nevada.
2012-06-23 04:26:14 PM  
ohio. as long as louisville gets caught in the crossfire.
2012-06-23 04:26:15 PM  
They can have the entire bible belt. Our version of the middle east.

Las Vegas: You'll only kill Celine Dion and a bunch of TV crews filming documentaries about Las Vegas
2012-06-23 04:26:22 PM  
How big a city? I grew up in one 2,000 strong, and would see that go if but to seek sweet, delicious revenge on a couple of bullies who never moved away.

Failing that, and it has to be a "name" city, Riverside Iowa. That'll distort the timeline. *cackles*

borg: The smallest city in the middle of Nevada.

Y U hate whooers??
2012-06-23 04:26:33 PM  
Binghamton, NY FTW.

No useful industry, no one of any significance here, half the city and all the surrounding countryside white trash, big, smoking, glow-in-the-dark tourist attraction afterwards, whats not to like?
2012-06-23 04:26:33 PM  
Berkeley, California. Go riddance, you goddamn hippies.
2012-06-23 04:26:42 PM  
R'lyeh. It's probably in American waters. Then use my executive privilege to be the first eaten by Cthulhu.
2012-06-23 04:26:42 PM  
Let's not be hasty: Maybe this is some sort of wry alien test. They want to see if we've advanced enough to have learned compassion.

I refuse to nuke any cities.
2012-06-23 04:26:42 PM  
Ocala Florida, my home town, now a retirement community - nothing of value will be lost

// It's the only way to be sure
2012-06-23 04:26:59 PM  
Whatever city the alien command center is in...
2012-06-23 04:27:15 PM  
2012-06-23 04:27:16 PM  
Provo, Utah

absolutely no contest.

salt lake city as second choice, but even that vile metropolis has some minor good points, compared to the black-hole of religious idiocy that is Provo
2012-06-23 04:27:21 PM  
Either Birmingham, Alabama or maybe Omaha, Nebraska.
2012-06-23 04:27:34 PM  
Hartford, CT ... no great loss.
2012-06-23 04:27:56 PM  
Chicago because it's a hive of stupid farking Democrats who are ruining this state and I would be able to see the mushroom cloud from my house.

Deacon Blue: Washington, D.C. You'd get rid of more politicians that way.

Came to say this, leaving satisfied.
2012-06-23 04:28:41 PM  
Clearwater FL. That's where scientology is headquartered right?
2012-06-23 04:28:42 PM  
Is "DC when congress is in session" an answer that gets me investigated?
2012-06-23 04:28:52 PM  

birdmanesq: Anybody seen Fail Safe?

Oldie but goldie. Hadn't thought about it in a while. Wonder if there's a torrent for it.
2012-06-23 04:29:36 PM  

Zombie DJ: Bahgdad.

Oh, American?
I guess wherever furterfan lives.

This, a close second is Miami, FL

/will sacrifice Miami just to get rid of the D-bags in South Beach

At least it's not Detroit!

/not obscure

SamFlagg: Is "DC when congress is in session" an answer that gets me investigated?

Just claim you were brainstorming a new Tom Clancy book
2012-06-23 04:30:51 PM  

eraser8: For me, it's Minneapolis. No question.

Whenever a nuclear attack or deadly virus or zombie apocalypse is a possibility, I always hope it'll happen to Minneapolis.

awww whats wrong with Minneapolis?

I would go with Miami and take out "the king" and the rest of the idiots there.
2012-06-23 04:31:09 PM  

PeriRies: If they nuke LA, where will we get porn?

Um, duhhh! The Internet.
2012-06-23 04:31:11 PM  
This seems like an excellent opportunity to remove Tampa from the face of the planet.
2012-06-23 04:31:14 PM  
LA, easily.

/no point in fresno, it wouldn't know the difference
2012-06-23 04:31:33 PM  
Miami Fla., Miami Fla., oh and Miami Fla.
2012-06-23 04:31:45 PM  

SamFlagg: Is "DC when congress is in session" an answer that gets me investigated?

Didn't Tom Clancy write about that scenario (albeit in the State of the Union Address) in his book "Executive Orders"? Well, and the guy used a 747.

/window seat to Guantanamo?
2012-06-23 04:32:36 PM  
Is Puerto Rico in the mix? If so..any city in PR would do
2012-06-23 04:32:49 PM

Might as well.

It's not like another earthquake won't eventually lay the smack down on it anyway.
2012-06-23 04:34:12 PM  
Honolulu, so I can cover up my not being born on Earth.
2012-06-23 04:34:30 PM  
Anchorage probably. It is isolated with a lower population than most other cities. Plus all that radiation might warm up the rest of that frozen teat of Alaska.

But I could make a case for Orlando just because I want to Disneyworld to burn to the ground.

Either way I would first rename what ever city I choose Hiroshima or Nagasaki. That way I could hid the nuking in the history books.
2012-06-23 04:34:33 PM  
Flat, Alaska. Population ~4
2012-06-23 04:34:44 PM  
Captain Picard wouldn't play along with this. When someone threatens to kill many unless you choose one to die, the transfer of responsibility and choice is an illusion. If they carry through with their threat it is their responsibility, and that outcome is probably not what they really want or they would not have contrived the ordeal to begin with.
2012-06-23 04:34:53 PM  
Any city in Texas, except Austin.
