I'd like to hear a brief discussion of AI strategy for nuking the human player. It's happened to me in something like 1/4 of games where I'm coasting to a victory.

Two things surprise me:
1. AI will nuke a city I just captured, even if it's not their capital. The only justification I can see is that I'm likely to have a troop buildup near there and they can kill several birds with one atomic stone.
2. AI will nuke the SAME city two or even three times. I can't understand the algorithm's justification for this, because it happens even before I get a Worker to start cleaning the radioactivity. It happens even if I have another city within range of their nuke -- which is typically larger because their first nuke shrank the target's population.
