    Map: The Nuclear Bombs in Your Backyard

    Look up where in the United States the Pentagon keeps its atomic weaponry.

    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.
