Say a nuclear bomb detonates in the Mohave Desert. The White House confirms it was a terrorist attack meant for Los Angeles, but was thwarted to the best of their abilities. Would your reaction be more offensive or defensive? Explanation in comments.

They weren't going for LA if the bomb the Mojave desert, I will guarantee that much.

There are a number of military bases here, and it would be clear which one(s) they were bombing for. Either way, I would not be there to express any emotion.

And it's "Mojave Desert", even though it was named after the Mohave tribe.

Maybe they were Las Vegas terrorists, and we laid out a tack strip and flattened their tires!

I wouldn't go crazy, the IC is vast and would have some knowledge of who was able to pull off an attack of this magnitude. I feel that the government would be able to find out who attacked us and come up with a plan to bring them to justice.

Did you continue with your daily routine on 9/11?

Yes. I was sad at the incredible loss of life. But my life must go on. I went to work that day. On breaks I caught news but I didn't shut down and run for my life.

Thank you. Neither of these options make sense. I'm not gonna live in fear. That's just commonsense.

Ok. I'd probably flee the country.

Offensive - you leave town for the wilderness, looting if needed, taking along firearms, ammunition, and survival gear
Defensive - stay home or go to your love one's house, lock the doors, and defend what you have should need be.

I know offensive and defensive aren't rally good words to use, but it was all I could really fit in 300 characters.
