The theatrics begin as short-range and long-range missiles clash; prototypes become alive and take flight.
Nervous leaders await global fall-out, crews clean underground bunkers and silos;
wondering about impact of a megaton,
fearing detonation and ionizing radiation.
Strategic air command prepares for the final countdown and untold damage.
The counterforce and scientists pontificate over satellite image. Dregs of war
part of the testament of gore.
