I don't think that this is an attempt to actually expand our arsenal (which I wouldn't mind doing actually), but merely an attempt to maintain it's current size.
Er. Russia is'nt a nuclear new comer.
Atleast that's what I think you just implyed.
Russia and the U.S. have more than 80% of the world's nuclear weapons.
Also, both countries signed a treaty to dismantle there nuclear weapons.
