You know, capital letters and proper punctuation would make it much easier to communicate with you. As to your question, every time a nuke hits a city, it reduces the population of that city by half. So, take for example a city with 20 M people. The first nuke will reduce the population to 10 M, then 5 M, then 2.5 M, then 1.25, &c. To reduce this city to less than 0.05 M people (the lowest number possible for the game to display), you would have to hit it nine times.

(I will do it, I will do it nine times!)

The last game I played saw Sao Paolo with 0.0M population, and Europe with many 0.0M population cities. It's not impossible, you just wouldn't normally direct that much hatred towards so few cities. Except for Sao Paolo, people will set 4 subs on that one city, just because it's big and can be shot at from a very safe distance.

It should be noted that, while the game will display 0.0M, it does keep track internally of the exact population. This is why scores may appear tied, but one player will be declared the winner at the end of a very close game.

I do it mainly as a symbolic gesture.
