5. we have at least 10,000 warheads. We could dig a hole the size of China
and heat it to a million degrees. That's tough to recover from.

Our nukes would be hard to hit because they are spread between manned bombers, ICBMs, and missile subs.

If you hit just the capital and a couple of the major cities, the recovery to the point of being a world power again would be measured in decades, not months or years.
