Although the U.S. would still be the dominant world power if everybody got rid of nuclear weapons, its ruling class still wants to keep and improve its own nuclear weapons stockpile while doing its best to ensure that countries like Iran that could use their possession of nuclear weapons as a deterrent to U.S. conventional or nuclear attack don't get such weapons.
