The US tells Iran to shut up, that it only has 5113 nuclear warheads (link here) and is working to reduce that number - down from 31,255 warheads (link here) in 1967. So in my lifetime, the US has eliminated 5/6th of their nuclear stockpile... going from total planet annihilation X30, to total planet annihilation X5 (at 1000 warheads, released all at once, you can create enough fall out to kill all the vertebrates).
Though angry, indignant right wing talking heads think this is treasonous to state such things, I think it's a good thing. When going from total annihilation X30 to X5, that's a significant reduction in 40 years, but we can do better. It's more change than the meager 15% reduction in green house gasses that the current energy bill proposes.
