Who controls nuclear weapons?

Basically, what I am asking is:

- Who makes all these nuclear weapons?

-Is it just the United States & a few other countries that are allowed to?

-Or, can anyone go make nuclear weapons if they felt like it?

-Since the United States sells nuclear weapons to other countries, can't those countries turn around and use them against us?

- ^ why or why not? Are there rules against using weapons on certain countries?

- ^ if so, who comes up with these?

- Where are nuclear weapons kept and made?

Thank you!

    1. The Air Force and Navy maintain, store, and are responsible for deploying nuclear weapons.

    2. Nukes are part of weapon systems that are created and researched by DARPA and various other military research branches of the DOD.

    3. No one can just "make" nuclear weapons, unless they want to be pressured aggressively by nations that already possess them. There's various international treaties that prevent and discourage (or at least suppose to) creation of nuclear arms.

    4. We don't sell nuclear weapons to other countries.

    5. The rules are in place to prevent wide scale production and deployment of nuclear weapons.

    6. The UN and various military pacts like NATO comes up with these rules and regulations.

    7. Nuclear weapons are kept and manufactured in classified locations for obvious security and safety reasons.

    America's nuclear weapons were made by the University of California, at the Los Alamos National Lab in New Mexico.

    nukes where made by many super countries mainly the US and Russia. basically the world leaders all agree that nuclear weapons are way over powered and are a destroyer of the earth, except the radical groups that want nothing more than the extermination of others. most nukes are held in secret bunkers, but some are floating around with the break up of the Soviet Union.

    The only protector that control the earth from self destruction is GOD. The mistake has already been made by producing nuclear weapons, American government have started what they cannot end and even president obama confirms that. Expect a blast at any point in time.

    Actually our Star brothers and sisters have controlled all nuclear weapons on the planet since the Cuban Missle Crisis.There is plenty of evidence that unidentifed craft has been seen over missle bases and silos and have actually deactivated nuclear weapons.Thank God for that because the morons that think they control the missles would have probably depopulated the entire planet by now. I am sending a link, judge for yourself.
