Scenario: al-Qaeda style attack. Five small nuclear weapons detonated simultaneously in five major US cities. Decapitation of government. Assistant Secretary of Agriculture put in charge. He orders retaliatory nuclear strikes against Mecca, Tehran, Damascus, Pyongyang, and in his madness, Islamabad.

China reacts by launching first strike of one hundred nukes at US. US reacts by sending 500 nukes at China. Russia reacts, and either in preemption or response, the US sends 700 nukes at Russia as it sends 100 nukes at what's left of the US. India sees a chance to attack what's left of Pakistan but not before Pakistan lobs a few nukes at India.

The rest is described in _The Road_.
