What is an American city worth?
On September 11, 2001, we were deeply moved by the deaths of 2,996 people and the wounding of another 6,000 in terrorist attacks on our nation.
In reaction to that shocking day, America launched a series of wars that have gone on for nearly 16 years, have cost more than $5 trillion, and have left more than 4,000 Americans dead and more than 50,000 severely wounded.
That has been the cost of attacks by terrorists using commercial airliners as weapons.
Now consider the human cost of losing one American city to a nuclear strike.
