I dont see how that works. What are the sequence of events you predict will take place? The US gets rid of its nukes. Do Russia, China, NK, Israel, France, India, Pakistan and the UK follow and destroy theirs?

Better, in my opinion, to have invaded Iraq and removed the Baathists from power. That reduced tensions in the area ( in terms of countries attacking each other ), which lessened greatly the need of Iran to have nukes of their own.

The facts support this view. In 2003, after Saddam and the Baathists were removed from power, Iran discontinued its nuclear weapons program.
