I don't know about that. Germany is not threatened even though it does not have nuclear weapons. I am thinking once we regionalize we can collectively be non aligned and certainly have a much smaller footprint overseas. Where we give up all but the bomber part of the triad and concentrate on missile defense. At that point it is Russia and China which can square off against each other. Or whatever. Not our concern.

Maybe another way to look at this is to ask what happens if the US unilaterally disarms. To do that we would have to bring all the troops home. Put up trade and immigration barriers. The less we have to do commercially and politically with the rest of the world, the less other countries have reason to clash with us.
