Thanks to the republicans dogged insistence on missile defense research and deployment, the US soon be able to do exactly what you are asking for.

As I understand it, the thousands of nuclear weapons were intended to guarantee some weapons would survive a Soviet first strike and in turn destroy that country. Mutually assured destruction. With missile defense, which democrats oppose despite the facts which support the idea, the US can unilaterally reduce its nuke stockpile.
