Have to agree with you. Also because of a, in my opinion, contradiction in the whole story. First we get the story about the US weapons arsenal, followed by the Russian arsenal. Obviously hinting at yet another cold war. So far, understandable. To some degree.

Yet this is immediately followed by mention about China working on their nuclear arsenal, Pakistan (with the threat to Israel still in mind) and of course North Korea.

As much as I hate to say this but keeping your arsenal "on-par" with the rest is one of the things which kept us safe during the last cold war. Within that reasoning I'd personal feel less safe it the US wouldn't acknowledge the facts and maintain their arsenal like this. Quite frankly I think the same goes for Russia. Personally I'd honestly sooner expect the US and Russia cooperating against the current threats (IS comes to mind) than starting a new arms run between themselves again.
