During the 8-day holiday of Sukkot, Iran explodes nuclear warheads in near space high over Israel. The resulting electromagnetic pulse (EMP) blacks out power, disables microchips and sends the Middle East back to the pre-electronics age. The same Yom Kippur War neighbors attack immediately.

What would you do if you were a middle eastern despot and had one atomic bomb, with no hope of ever getting another?

Nuke Tel Aviv? New York? London? Washington? In 1991, Tom Clancy nuked the Superbowl (The Sum Of All Fears). This is 2011, and the world is a different place.
