Yup - that's been on the cards for a while. Dan-plug - here's a bit
from an article I did before the war started -
"The strongest effect of dropping out of nuclear proliferation treaties
has, not surprisingly, been the threat of a renewed nuclear arms race.
Mohamed El Baradei, head of the International Atomic Energy Agency,
believes that we will not succeed in stopping more countries building
the bomb if the countries that have them do not continue to disarm.
Before 9/11, China made it clear that it would not tolerate a situation
where the US was hiding safely under its techno-umbrella, able to strike
with impunity: "China cannot sit idly by and watch its means for
self-defence being weakened and even deprived of in any form." Russia is
bringing back on line 144 'satan' missiles, which were to be scrapped
under the START2 treaty negotiated by Bush senior. Each one fires 50
warheads over its target, 40 of which are decoys. North Korea's renewed
programme is not unrelated. More weapons will be designed specifically
to fool any defence shield we may have. Would we really want to pin our
safety on an unproved, sci-fi system bringing every one of them down?"

The true meaning of life is to plant trees,
under whose shade you do not expect to sit.
