Shoulder Fired Nukes. Bet You didn't see that one coming.
In this scenario terrorists are likely to use a shoulder fired missile. Current advances in technology may even turn a shoulder fired missile into a missile-guided system; this means that a shoulder fired missile could be launched from several miles away and simply "guided" by remote control to the heart of Wall Street. Terrorists already have a history of using shoulder fired missiles (to launch attacks in the Middle East, including Israel). To date a chief fear is that in America they'll use these to take down commercial planes.

How easy would it be for terrorists to get their hands on shoulder fired missiles? Consider that Russia sold 1800 shoulder fired missiles to Venezuela, as reported in this 2010 article: Washington Post: Venezuela acquires 1,800 antiaircraft missiles from Russia

That's just one instance. Arms sales between Russia and Iran and Venezeula are common place. Why should Americans be alarmed by this? Because Iran is deeply entrenched in Venezuela, with regular flights between Iran and Venezuela. Iran we already know is suspected to be connected to 80% of the terrorist activity in the world. Cartels move drugs, people and weapons -- we can bet they can also move shoulder fired missiles.

I'm pretty sure that the minimum weight to hit criticality exceeds that which can be launched from a shoulder fired weapon, let alone have guidance capabilities and be able to go "a few miles".

Even a Silverback would have trouble with that load, lol.
