USA's nuclear spending higher now than during Cold War

USA's nuclear spending higher now than during Cold War. 45850.jpegAn interactive map of military and civil nuclear objects of the United States has appeared online. The website has been created on the base of the data from the Pentagon and the organizations regulating the nuclear industry.

The map, based on the Google Maps technology, displays dozens of pins. The pins are divided into three categories. The red ones show the location of army bases where nuclear bombers, submarines and ICBM launch silos are deployed, Dni.ru said. The blue pins indicate the laboratories conducting research in the field of nuclear arms. The blue pins also indicate the nuclear test grounds that were used in the past. The group of the green pins is the largest: they indicate nuclear power plants in the country.

The Pentagon currently has 5,113 nuclear warheads at its disposal. The nukes can be launched any moment from the silos, submarines and strategic bombers. The number does not include 3,000 more nukes that expect utilization.

As Mother Jones reports, the map has been created to show the world that the United States is moving towards arms reduction in spite of the fact that the nation's nuclear spending now is higher than it was during the Cold War.
