    Where the nukes are: Map shows nuclear material spread across United States



    By Zachary Roth | The Lookout ? 11 hrs ago







    (Mother Jones)

    The Cold War ended more than two decades ago. But the United States still has more than 5,000 atomic warheads scattered around the country or on submarines around the world. And President Obama's push for a nuclear-weapons-free world is moving at a frustrating, glacial pace.
    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.
    You can view a full screen version of the map here.
    And you can check out Mother Jones's recent related story on how we're spending even more on our weapons complex than we did during the Cold War.

    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    I'm not sure whether to believe this or not . Looks like these sites would be a little more discreet.
