** While there are already two nuclear states in Europe (Britain and France), Europe is densely populated. They probably avoided nukes to avoid contaiminating areas with refugees. Russia, on the other hand, might have been less stringent with their nukes.

[[WMG: Independance Day takes place in the Endersvers]]
Independance Day is actually the First Formic War referred to in Ender's Game, but from the American perspective; or possibly a pro-America historical rewrite created as Hegemon propaganda. Resurgence is the Second Formic War, and the conclusion of the trilogy is Ender's Game itself.

Think about it. With all of the chaos that occurred, the government decides "Screw repairing Manhattan!" and throws the worst offenders in it. After Snake Plissken's little adventure, they finally start fixing things again. (Creator/AlanMoore, if you're reading this, feel free to use it in a LeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen segment).

[[WMG: Switzerland was a BigDamnHero.]]
The War of 1996 website shows that Geneva and Zurich survived the attack. Seeing that this was a global alien invasion, Switzerland decided "Screw neutrality!" and declared that they would help in the European front. However, once it became clear that the aliens had deflector shields, they held back their forces until a way could be found to get through them. As the remnants of the German Luftwaffe fought over Munich, the Swiss Air Force arrived at the last minute and allowed the destruction of the Berlin ship.
