The Nimitz would probobly be the best choice. I was thinking more along the lines of munitions and delivery systems since he said "weapon" and "nuke".

But if we are open to platforms as well the Nimitz isn't a bad choice at all, maybe the B-2 bomber you could add to that.

Like most other military forces the most powerful weapon a nation puts onto the field of battle are Soldiers, Marines, Airmen, and Sailors. Everything else is an add-on for the particular job at hand.

That's correct. The weapons and tools we use are only as good as the people using them, which is where our strength lies.

Money isn't the most effective. You can throw money at problems all day long, and it won't fix them. Money is a tool. It helps pay for the weapons, training etc. but it is up to the Soldiers/Sailors/Airmen/Marines to get the job done using the tools provided. If they aren't up to snuff, no amount of money in the world will help.

As others have said, the most effective weapon the US military has is the individual serviceman/woman working as a combat effective team.

I can't believe your teacher actually asked such a vague question. Why don't you post, word-for-word, what they ACTUALLY asked you, then maybe you can get an answer?
