The submarines had surfaced briefly off of both coasts and released their deadly payloads. Dozens of nuclear missiles designed to take out the command and control functions of the United States government and military were launched. The subs, themselves nuclear powered, ran full speed toward the coasts to beach themselves, blow themselves up as makeshift dirty bombs.
While the U.S. didn’t know exactly whose submarines they were, it didn’t matter. The capitals and major population centers of every European and Asian country were already targeted. The order was automatic whether the President was alive or dead, he had already set the system up that way as ‘They’ had told him to. The silos went active, the nuclear buses began to descend from their orbits, the bombers were already in the air, the fleet was on-station and the submarines were surfacing. All sent their homage to the grim reaper into the atmosphere for a simultaneous Time-On-Target.
