I'd destroy the easiest country first, then work my way "up."
The easiest country to destroy would be The Holy See (The Vatican). My next target would probably be Monaco.
No country would be "spared."
I'll destroy all at once.
If i were alien , i would probably have vastly superior technology , so when i was scanning Earth , i would engage my , bully , smart-*** , spiteful , social predator , button pusher , sensors , and rather than destroy whole nations , just systematically exterminate the above .
Hmmm... I would go for China, because the US is being picked so often already in movies and books. Lots of people to kill there too, I would do humanity a service with that, lessening the overpopulation of the planet and such...
In no particular order ........ but I will leave South Africa safe being my country.
I'd probably hit major milita ba
You really think an alien would see the division in countries the same way as humans? The whole planet is infested with humans regardless of where these monkeys are located or what they are doing there isn't much difference and they are all as easily killed.
I would have no regard for imaginary lines on the ground that the monkeys pretend exist, hypothetical or not, I would exterminate regardless of location, though might keep some around for slaves and food.
I wouldn't destroy anything but I would take all the oil and then see what unfolds.
would destroy the USA and China to be safe and leave europe alone to enjoy the food and culture
