The Rand Corporation report notes Vegas has having a large number of likely targets when compared to other major U.S. cities. The Rand report noted the targets, the hotels on the Vegas strip. The study looked at the potential losses if terrorists used two different truck bombs, “5″ and “10″ ton truck bombs. An airliner striking a hotel and the doomsday scenario of the devastation of a 5 kiloton nuclear bomb.
