The objective of Operation Stardust was to hit the grain-producing region
of North America and knock out a good portion of Earth's food supply, and
it succeeded. After something like this, Earth would probably have to rely
on outside sources (colonies, anyone?) to make up for the shortage.

Of course, everyone thought Jaburo would be what they were trying to hit,
just like Kou thought that Gato and his retrieval team would be at the
most defensible position in that little Australian bay.

Unfortunately, things aren't that simple sometimes...
