He looked pretty excited just by getting his hands on the case carrying the nuke, he obviously thought "
what a thrill....to have a nuke within reach, and no one to stop me from launching it"

You know why? Why he launched it? So that you wont be able to backtrack to Grannin's lab. That location will be blocked when you try to return there.
because he's a kid with a new toy, one nuke is enough to scare everyone, everyone knew he had "at least" 2 nukes
also it's to show how absolute madman he is and set a good context for the rest of the game
You know what the boss was??
She was a traitor!

Am I being retarded? Is there something that I'm missing? Because a nuke nobody knows about is a nuke that won't deter anyone.
