Gee, that’s not troubling at all.

The United States, Russia and France have all test-launched nuclear-capable missiles within hours of one another as international fears of a global arms control collapse heightened.
The U.S. and Russia have, in recent days, suspended their 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty banning land-based missiles with ranges from 310 to 3,420 miles following Washington’s accusations that Moscow violated the deal with its new Novator 9M729 missile. As the two sides continued to swap threats of escalation, the three countries believed to have the most nuclear weapons in the world demonstrated their strategic capabilities.
First, the French military said Tuesday that its air force conducted a rare test Monday of the nuclear-capable medium-range air-to-surface missile (ASMP). The U.S. then fired a nuclear-capable Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) later Tuesday night in local time and, about an hour and a half later, the Russian armed forces fired a nuclear-capable RS-24 Yars ICBM.
Though none of the tests were said to have been equipped with nuclear warheads and all were likely scheduled far ahead of time, they came at a period of major uncertainty as key nonproliferation agreements were dismantled.
I would like to welcome our younger citizens to the new arms race.
Trust me, you will not like it.
And I would also like to tell the Trump voters to go fuck themselves.
