Um, no, that's not quite right. It's not as simple as that. I realise that in "Spies Like Us" they pretty much just throw it around and all, and in most war movies, people are nuking one country on the other side of the world etc etc, but that's just not how it works logistically. Like I said, where Korea have their nukes they only have the capacity to hit Alaska. The won't even hit Canada, let alone the mainland of America.
Funny, though, how America has twice the rest of the world's amount of nukes, yet they call another country a nuclear threat? Hmmph.
