Where the Nukes are.....in the US!

The United States currently has 5,113 atomic warheads deployed in silos, bombers, and submarines, mostly in the continental US. That doesn't include thousands of "zombies" being kept in reserve and a backlog of more than 3,000 warheads awaiting dismantlement. Meanwhile, we're telling the world that we're on the path to disarmament, even as we're spending more on the nuclear weapons complex than we did during the Cold War.....snip~

You can check out the map at the link. What I was looking at is when the Pols discuss Civilian nuclear Facitilities. Note how much we have already. Look where they can put any that are built. Is there some reason that we don't use dams like Hoover that will generate power for electricty? Moreso now. What about with use of the flooding of the Mississippi every year wherein we loses billions of dollars.

Creates jobs.....creates energy and or power. What are the dedriments to using this natural means of obtaining a power source? Especially since they were talking about fault lines and all with Nuke Plants and or Facilities. Wouldn't let me put the map up. Even tho Mother Jones says it is all Public knowledge.

More than likely, there's highly radioactive nuclear material not too far from you right now. The hair-raising map above, compiled by Mother Jones magazine using data from the Defense Department and nuclear watchdog groups, lets you see just where those warheads are--while also showing civilian nuclear facilities, as well as the far-flung labs and factories that make up the American weapons complex. Our scattered system for making and storing weapons is needlessly expensive and dangerous, watchdog groups have said.....snip~  :o    ::)

Yup, I looked at the map. It's a cool idea but I think that map is missing a lot of stuff. For example I am sure there are nuclear capable war ships and subs here in the San Diego ports, right? It's the biggest WC military port as far as I know. But all that the map shows is a nuclear power plant (not weaponized) up the freeway that I already knew about. Maybe I'm wrong. I know the silos etc are probably almost all in the interior of the country away from population centers.

Only one plant in NJ? It's a small state so it makes sense.
