Retired Spy Reveals Which US City Would Be Nuked In A World War

Retired Spy Reveals Which US City Would Be Nuked In A World War

A retired spy has revealed which US city would be nuked in the event of a nuclear war. Find out for yourself:


A TikTok user called Maria has been sharing videos of conversations with her dad, who used to work for the US government during the Cold War.

She regularly puts a series of questions to her old man, from aliens and underwater bases to how many people he has or hasn't killed and whether birds are actually government-controlled drones.


And in one of her latest videos, the uni student asks him about what would happen if World War Three really did break out.

Well, according to the former covert operative, there's one city in the US that would be first on the list.

He says: "Minot, North Dakota."

Now, in case this is the first time you have read those three words together, fear not, you're not alone.

And while Maria's dad doesn't expand on his answer, there's a good chance that it could be because Minot is the location of Minot Air Force Base.

The base is home to the 5th Bomb Wing and 91st Missile Wing, which are both major departments of the Air Force Global Strike Command(AFGSC), which is headquartered in Louisiana.

The AFGSC provides combat forces for strategic nuclear deterrence and global strike operations in support of combat commanders.


So yeah, I imagine they could do with keeping that particular base intact.

But it's not just nuclear warfare that Maria has been quizzing her father about.

In the same video, she asked him about languages, explaining that he would advise students to learn Mandarin if they were looking to take one up.


He also discussed 'class warfare', warning: "If wealth inequality continues to rise, sooner or later the poorer class is going to rise up."

In other videos, though, Maria hasn't been as successful at getting much change out of the former spy.

When asked what was in Area 51, he says: "Land."

While in another post, Maria asks him what is the US government's top-secret, and unsurprisingly, he doesn't budge on that either.
