At 600 REM, death is assumed to be virtually certain, especially with the probable scarcity of medical care in the wake of an attack. Massive attacks on a small area such as a missile base can produce 600+ REM fallout up to several hundred miles away. The model used in the simulation is not comprehensive.

For example, metro stations in Pyongyang, North Korea, were constructed 110 metres (360 ft) below ground, and were designed to serve as nuclear shelters in the event of war, with each station entrance built with thick steel blast doors. [81] [82] An example of a privately funded fallout shelters is the Ark Two Shelter in Ontario, Canada, and autonomous shelters have been constructed with an emphasis on post-war networking and reconstruction.

The propaganda campaign stipulates that the mini-nukes are harmless. Based on this premise, the US Congress has given the "green light": this new generation of nuclear weapons is slated to be used in the next phase of the war, in "conventional war theaters" (e.g. in the Middle East and Central Asia) alongside conventional weapons October 1962: The 'Missile' Crisis as Seen from Cuba October 1962: The 'Missile' Crisis as.
