The only way out of the nuclear dilemma is universal disarmament.
"There is no sane reason for anyone to possess nuclear weapons." Why should we prevent someone else from doing so?
I don't think you have a consistent position here, man.
Good luck, btw, with universal disarmament. The physics is getting to be old hat. Each passing decade lowers the bar, increases the ease with which these things can be made. What do you propose to do when the technology becomes easily accessible by moderately sophisticated non-state actors? It will be, eventually.
