So I found this on TV Tropes in the "Fridge Brilliance" page for Fallout 3, and as you can see, this gives an explanation as to why The Enclave doesn't just take out The BOS by simply obliterating The Citadel. Now before anyone says anything, no I'm not saying that this was Bethesda's intention all along when it comes to this plot hole, that's giving them WAY too much credit. What I'm trying say & ask is if this headcanon/fan explanation is either clever? Or just straight up stupid & filled with holes!? Remnants of The Old World type shiz going on over here!
