    I dont' believe the US currently is producing any new nuclear weapons. They haven't since probably the inital collapse of the Soviet Union, back in the early 90's. There was talk of producing a new generation of nukes that would better meet modern mission demands, but that is on hold. There is money spent on maintaining our current stockpile, though. All of that would be contained in the Air Force and Naval budgets, and I don't think it would be all that big of a percentage. Sorry I can't supply an exact number, but I would guess <1% of the Air Force budget plus 0.5% of the Naval budget. They just kind of sit there, and the stockpile has been reduced over the last decade and a half.

    In time.

    All will be going to the junk yard for the good of mankind with the creation of peace on earth goodwill to men.

    When our creator left behind a landmark in Russia for the good of mankind.

    Just that we do not know how to read it.

    Well put it this way:

    FY of 08's budget provides 175 million for trident missiles

    According to the navy: they run 30 million a piece

    I think almost 1/2 of the federal money spent is on millitary causes. I'm sure quite a bit.
