Well, there you're assuming that they can be starved.  Surviving Z's would just need to keep walking until they got out of the depopulated zone.  Also, you'd have Z's that wander into the area after the bomb has gone off (after all, there won't be anyone to put up 'Danger: Radiation!' signs for the Z's to ignore).  Trudging through fallout probably gives them a bit of a glow right there.

Everyone's still forgetting the fact that almost everyone has at least some exposure to 'zombie culture' so to speak and would know how to defeat them. The moment a confirmed zombie outbreak occurs not a single person would die without the head being destroyed first and gun sales would go through the roof.

Not to mention that 'ground zero' would probably be literally vaporized within days if not hours.

There's just no way that any kind of zombie outbreak, even of the 'the dead -somehow- reanimate no matter how they died and can run REALLY REALLY FAST'(ignoring all of biology that tells us that zombies as a whole are actually impossible) would do more than be a problem for a year at best and more likely a couple of months. (Ignoring the 'everyone who dies for any reason becomes a zombie' sort of weirdness)

The zombie outbreak would be destroyed and contained even if it meant glassing entire countries to save the world.

I have to admit you are on point with the fact the military would have ground zero vaporized a la The Crazies. Also I don't see the whole anyone being 'infected' becoming a zombie to be weird. I mean if it was spreading like a plague then as long as they didn't die then they would just become another piece of the horde. To me I always thought of zombies as an umbrella (hehehehe Umbrella) term for any zombie-esque horde of mindless humans that infect others and either act with murderous and or cannibalistic tendencies.

Not to critique this point, but depending on where a plague or virus like this hits, youíd need to blow up half the world to stop it. Iím pretty sure the rest of the world would become inhabitable anyway in that case. For example Europe. Unlike the popular zombie movie shows, here in Europe there isnít anywhere to run to or hide. Should something like this hit central or Western Europe, especially with airports and the likes involved (depending on the type of virus or plague), by the time the big powers would be able to confirm enough to actually nuke a continent, over eight hundred million people could be infected. Similar would be true for south east Asia and India. Besides, one mustnít forget that most modern countries arenít self sufficient. Sure, people can survive, but without international trade, surviving populations would diminish quickly due to starvation.

It only takes one to start an outbreak, and you can't guarantee a nuke will take out all of them. Especially if they're not at the epicenter of the blast. Getting hit by the fallout ain't gonna do shit to them, only being vaporized by the flame or smashed against something by the force of the blast will accomplish it, and if they're runners, good luck hitting at just the right spot to get the most of them with one shot if you're trying to minimize the amount of damage you're doing to a place that will have to be rendered uninhabitable by radiation. World War Z even pointed out how non-nuclear arsenals of big explosives weren't very effective so going smaller-scale won't get the job done either. But guaranteed they're going to try that before they try nukes. Stupid as politicians are, they're not THAT stupid.

Also no one's taking into account all the idiots who are going to be desperate to save their loved ones who've suffered a bite despite there being no hope of a cure at that point, or who will be too emotionally compromised to put them down even after they turn, not to mention all the fundamentalist assholes who'll think it's a sign from god and do everything they can to sabotage the efforts of people trying to solve the problem.
